    Grape Street is one of those places with some really heavy bad energy look at all of the young lives lost through bloodshed for decades on grape street alone. i imagine the number is very high…..

    Those killed could have been inside the house having a beer, but no, they wanted to exposed to anyone who wanted to practice shooting.

    Why did this make the news? According to another news station the shooters and the people that were killed were black. This is just another day in the ghetto. The next time you have a vacant apartment unit for rent or a house for rent/sale please refrain from renting/selling it to a black person. Even though this is illegal I and my neighbors have done this for over 20 years in Burbank. The end result: a peaceful community, no graffiti, no loitering criminals and no house nor apartment has any metal bars on their windows. Before anyone calls me a racist…yes, I am🙂

      Say good by to the mudflap Mrs. Butterworth, it’s the hood and you and your fellow mudflaps have made it what it is today.

      Thank you Lori for telling these utterly ignorant fools the truth. Dexter was a sweet kid who didn’t harm people but rather made people feel good, made them laugh when they were down. . These idiots who write these hateful things don’t even know that dexter was not black, in fact he was half white.
