    Which part of Martin Luther King Area, Forest Park?

  • Anonymous says:

    So much for Black Lives Matter huh ?

    • Alex Libman says:

      “Black Lives Matter” doesn’t mean “black lives matter”.

      Words or terms can be hijacked, overloaded, and completely subverted by political movements (like how the word “gay” used to mean “happy”).

      BLM is the name and slogan of a racist Marxist organization, which uses Black people much like the original class-ist Marxists used the “working class” – as pawns in their quest for government power.

      People who actually want to make lives better for Black Americans support MORE police funding, more focus on practical education (as opposed to the leftist hijacking of academia), pro-growth economic policies, and merit-based immigration (which adds more entrepreneurs rather than competitors for entry-level jobs).

    enough already! clean the area up, go door to door and take the guns there!

  • Alex Libman says:

    More higher-resolution security cameras in high-risk public areas is a part of the solution.

    The odds of getting away with such a shooting in the 21st century should be zero!

    I have utmost support for the Second Amendment, but people should also understand that it shouldn’t trump property rights. The owners of an apartment complex or a neighborhood association have a Right to ban guns.
