    Another case where the criminal element tries to ruin an otherwise quiet working class neighborhood.

  3. Bullett says:

    I also concur regarding the question of 11,13,& 14 year old children up at 3:40 AM with skunk drunk adults. Where is the repesentative for children family services?

  4. KingTutti says:

    I have to say ask that question as well. Wha the he’ll was a 14, 13 and 11yr old doing at a party at 3:40am? Had this not happened how late would they have been out and how often does this occur? This is the very reason blacks are failing in schools and failing in life. The unemployment rate among black males is so high because they’re lazy, uneducated and unqualified. And as long as their parents keep failing their children the cycle will never end.

  5. Anna says:

    The children could have been hit by stray bullets. Let’s not blame the parents until all of the information is in..

    We don’t want another “The police acted stupedly” moment!

  8. what a loser says:

    yes parents should be arrested and hopefully shooter will commit suicide.But he probably ran out of bullets so hopefully police will just shoot first .

  10. Anne says:

    What were a 14, 13 & 11 year old doing at a party at 3 O’clock in the morning ~ Parents should be charged with neglect!

    1. Very conservative says:

      What do you expect? Blacks acting black. Nothing new here. And in that particular area of the Bx, you have the Haitian and Jamaican varieties which are worse than the ones that have always been here.

    2. Jenn Lindsley-Manfre says:

      I agree and so do a lot of parents
