Gun Control

WPD has a hard time getting help in the community because they do no outreach in the community......They use to sponsor and coach little league sports year around, many was know across the inner city community and could get answer from people because the barrier of distrust was taken down. Sorry guys you can lock up as many people as you want but name a time in history where there was no crime . Crime will exist but will those who commit the crimes be held accountable

Gun By Backs

This whole by back thing is stupid! Your going to give some punk money for guns he or she stole from a law abiding citizen. While they keep their guns to commit more crime. The lonely thing the city as done is funded these low lives their next "fix"(drugs). Real smart.....

shooting

I'm pissed because the WPD SWAT team woke me up at 2:20am this to go inside a house on Pheasant Ct. that was empty. If this started at 9:30 and the situatuon was so dangerous why did it take SWAT that long to get there?

Because

They wanted to make sure you were in bed. After all, it is all about you.

ATTENTION ATTENTION!! IT WAS

ATTENTION ATTENTION!! IT WAS A SHERIFF THAT SHOT THE MAN THAT WENT TO THE HOSPITAL. I LIVE IN PINEWOOD. NOTICE THE POLICE WERE NOT ON EVERY COURT. THEY WHERE JUST ON THRASHER & PHEASANT. AND THE ONLY REASON WHY THEY WERE OUT THERE THAT LONG WAS BECAUSE THEY WERE LOOKING FOR THE SHERIFF OFFICER SHELL CASING. ALL THEY TRYING TO DO IS COVER THERE ASS. THAT IS ATTEMPTED MURDER AND HE SHOULD BE EXPOSED AND PUNISHED. Ta

Whew!

I'm really, really glad to know that they took the man who was shot to the hospital! Probably would have been a waste of time to take the man who wasn't shot to the hospital, don't you think?

Just a guess, but do you think Elvis lives in Pinewood?

ATTENTION ATTENTION

Look to the left side of your keyboard, find the key labeled 'Caps Lock' and press it once. Then never press it again.

Dear guesty....

For this reply you made and for the one you made to lilbit, I love you. Will you marry me? :-)

Thank you

Sorry, I'm already married.

I live on Thrasher ct. This

I live on Thrasher ct. This is not the first case of shooting on my street. I agree with you guys, gun control is a joke!!!

Gun Control

Rest assured the gun used in this crime is illegally owned or stolen. There is no plan whatsoever for getting guns out of the hands of criminals, EXCEPT for gun buy back programs.

The shooter was probably in

The shooter was probably in church and had not learned about the "cease fire". Too bad he hadn't sold his gun at the buy back.

true

True, To bad only the honest and legal gun owners of society will turn in the guns. those so called thugs will never turn in their guns.

gun buyback = no gun crime drop. Your only encouraging more thugs to commit crimes on the sitting ducks that do fall for the crap.

Sorry, but you're sadly mistaken!

Only honest, legal and STUPID gun owners would turn in their guns to a buyback program! What's wrong with you? Law abiding, legal gun owners have their guns for a reason and it isn't to give them away for a few measly bucks.

When we begin to have a court system that keeps criminals behind bars and OUT of society instead of waiting until they've committed their 17th+ violent felony, you'll begin to see a difference! Until then, no laws, no buybacks, no restrictions and no background checks will ever even come close to being effective.
