We heard it, 6 or 7 shots. Ping off of something metal.

No sirens, though. No one hurt?

Two cars peeled out of Wyman shortly thereafter. Don’t think a bullet can travel from Mozart Park to Sheridan. I think it originated from the Kennedy School playground.

Enough is enough people. Grow up. Stop the gun violence. It's gettin tired. Learn something. Read a book. Do something positive.

perhaps a devil's bargain, but...

...legalize hard drugs and the gangs will have absolutely nothing to fight over. Prohibition doesn't erase the harm of drug addiction, it just exports it to poor communities and foreign countries.

I've heard this theory my whole life and can not understand why people still believe this. Gang violence has nothing to do with drugs or drug territories this isnt an 80's/90's gang movie. The violence stems from prior shootings/murders and getting revenge. Thats why it will NEVER stop. You cant tell someone who saw his brother get killed to just forget about it or stop being angry over it. Focus on what conditions these situations derive from
