    I swear you need a bullet proof vest to spend any time in downtown Wilmington. Sad.

    Isn’t it a Crime that there is a shooting during the middle of an otherwise beautiful Friday afternoon? It was NEVER like this in Wilmington. It is remnicent of northern, inner-city neighborhoods now, and yet we never had Broad daylight shootings.

    3 p.m.!!! NORMAL, law abiding citizens are traveling through this exact area without remotely thinking that this breath may be their last…as a stray bullet may bypass the intended badguys head and lodge in the innocent victims neck instead.

    Lovely! Ain’t this FUN???!!! But, the shooter WAS SUCH A GOOD BOY!!!

    Forget the bullet proof vest. You need a tank to drive through any of these DRUG infested streets in WILMINGTON these days, and they’re all Drug infested. I stopped at a stop sign on 10th* and 3 guys began to approach the car thinking that I wanted to score on some drugs. Why are the neighbors who live in all of those houses SILENT??? Wilmington Finest, you may want to go undercover in this area.

    Wilmington, A Great Place to visit, but it is becoming known as the city “invaded” by homeless peddling bums, drug warriors and gangbangers who have no regard for anyones life.

    THREE o’ CLOCK in the AFTERNOON. Let’s CRACK (pun intended) down on these punks!

    Children are heading home from school, in most neighborhoods and we are so aware of them and their safety around 3pm. case in point, if we are not, the shooters will not be!
