It is getting ridiculous how much we hear stories like this:
A Philadelphia teenager celebrating his 16th birthday is fighting for his life after a shooting over a snowball fight.
Authorities said the Feltonville teen, identified as Tavin Rutledge, was shot in the head at point-blank range while playing with neighborhood friends in the 4800 block of D Street.
Witnesses say the shooting was sparked from a casual snowball fight amongst children.
“Everyone was playing and throwing snowballs and one little boy ran and got his dad. His dad came around with a gun and shot him,” said Renay Reeves, Tavin’s aunt.
Why in the hell don’t any of the candidates talk about the social problems that are plaguing this nation? We have people blowing away schools left and right, parents shooting kids and cops beating the hell out of anyone.
As our economy continues a downward slide, you can expect to see crime rise even more.
The Republicans try to act like everything is fine and dandy, their typical
“head in the sand” approach, but I would hope the Democrats would bring
these issues front and center. Michelle Obama got heat for saying this is the first time in her “adult life” that she is “really proud of her country”. I wish I could share that sentiment.
