Los Angeles police received a call of shots heard in the 200 block of West 47th Street about 11:45 p.m. Friday and rushed to the scene. Upon arrival, they found 19-year-old Devon Hakilmy of Los Angeles and eight other gunshot victims.

    It’s what they do, it’s what they are! We can only hope they somehow manage to eradicate each other to the point of extinction, and free the world from the savage existence they present to the civilized beings that inhabit it. Hopefully, they take those that support their lifestyle with them so we no longer have to hear the ridiculous terms of ‘hater’, and discrimination any longer.


    R.I.P……….so what do you think goes on when non-blacks or non-hispanics kill? grow up dumb logic, nobody cares what about or ignorant logic, it’s true ignorance is bliss, that’s how you cope….neither one of those races are going anywhere, so why don’t you crawl back under the rock where you can from, it will suit society just fine…muah!
