    How unfortunate that a birthday party would turn so violent. At least there were no reports of stabbing or shots fired.
    The cops really do have their work cut out for them, as the old saying goes. Glad they were able to get things under control they way they did. Glad all the officers are ok.

    That’s what happens when you use bullets for candles.

    Happy Birthday! May your life be more useful than the useless idiots who started the melee!
