-still more problems at the same House where the shooting occurred ....when is the Mom going to get their act together?..... I guess trash will always be trash and hang around other trash.... and problems will continue to exist... Now I'm sure they will have a "reasonable" excuse (as they always do) and they had nothing to do with the person staying there.... But being up for 3 days is synonymous with crack and speed.... Or really bad insomnia... But they don't know anything about drugs ... Or gangs... Or street fighting...or pot...or out of control parties.. ...or alcohol abuse... Or...ugh i could go on.... But Mom is working on her image and her daughters ... Right? (extreme sarcasm)....
