  1. This “wanna-be gangsta” did not know about the Gun Amnesty?? It ends in a few days. Anyway take heed as to what became of the other “wanna-be gangstas” in the Lightfoot area when they opened fire on police.

    Please young man, you do not have to live this type of life. Make better/different choices because if not, you will either end up at CEMETERY or JAIL. Please I beg you to seek help!!

    • Lol wanna be?? did he do anything ‘gangster’ or try to? Is he known to the law ?? Judgement is reserved for the COURT for a reason …

      • LOL!!!! You mean he was gonna use the .22 Pistol to teach kindergarten how to read and resolve conflicts from an early age??
