    Anyone notices during every weekend there must be a pile of “people” doing the picnic at the parks from Rosemead to as far as Perris? After that, the places are always filled with filthy bacon, toritos, lard, diapers, and of course, the pink lip sticks. Now, there came infectious blood stain too? But I hope it’s ok to them because close kin can immune each other.

    I didn’t know that was a sketchy area.

    This type of brutal act should not be taken lightly and the cops should find and penalise the guilty.A man enjoying the day with his family and been killed in broad daylight,it’s too bad.
