    I had previously posted that the perps weren’t likely Mex Or Nigra. I was wrong! They were were Nigra, so it’s my mistake. I may have to reevaluate the danger that the Nigra presents to all human lifeforms.

      Nigra? It’s Knee Grows.

  4. LADriver says:

    A person has been killed and these post are about names and race? Thank God these perps have been arrested. I know L.A. has about 600+ murders a years, but people who kill people are sick and need to be taken off the streets.
