  1. Why aren’t you reporting the full story? Just trying to figure out how to spin the narrative to racism..?? Spoiler… it’s not…

    How come I know the full story, and you won’t report it?

    Cheat Sheet:

    Two girls (one known in town as an alleged cocaine dealer, SHE was being watched) 3:30 am, fled to outrun the cops, fired at cops, the cops returned fire, girl got shot in chest, both flown to ECMC.

    Don’t feel bad for the drug dealer selling cocaine, firing at cops….. Do the crime, do the time !!
