  1. I drove down this street at the time and saw large number of black teenagers running in the street. They looked excited, I thought they were playing a game. When I drove past a group on the sidewalk I saw a young black man with a gun shoot down the street. I really didn’t understand what was happening until I got to the intersection. When is this stuff going to end? We need a Savior. If I were in charge I would declare martial law and go door to door confiscating weapons. God help us. Amen
