No, No, Really. Keep The Bullet

Los Angeles, CA

Two men were shot in an alley in South L.A. this morning and when the cops showed up, they refused to tell them what happened. Police have no suspect and no motive. Both men, one shot in the arm and the other one in the ass, were taken to the hospital where they will, no doubt, cost the city and the state a certain chunk of change. And the community will still have at least one more psychopath still out there running around with a gun.

I think that if you get shot and you refuse to tell the cops who shot you, the state shouldn't have to pick up the tab. Give the guy a pair of needlenose pliers and a band-aid. Maybe a cheap suture kit and some rubbing alcohol. Hell, maybe just give a lighter and a crash course on wound cauterization.

They don't want to be responsible to the community, why should the community be responsible to them?

So you say until someone shoots you and then tells you next time (if you say anything), they'll come after you AND your family...

Next time, these guys won't forget to pay the vig on time.

I think Patti's on to something. That is so much the scene out of some black comedy movie.
