The Bee’s July 30 exposé about the ratio of liquor stores in the poorest of neighborhoods was laughable. Duh? It’s not a secret and never has been. To paraphrase “Furious” from Boyz In The Hood: Look around. Why is there a liquor store on every corner in the hood? None of them black owned. Who’s slingin’ the hash, crack and heroin to take down young brothers like yourselves? Simple. They want us to kill each other.
Now, Fresno City Councilman Garry Bredefeld wants to arm whom again? The notion was dismissive because it was so outrageously crazy. City employees? Great. Add cops and now we’re the wild West. What’s the count on gun ownership now? The crazy, drunken armed junkies versus the untrained crazy city employee and then the crazy, but trained, cops with guns.
Everyone is scared to death so it's Quick Draw McGraw time. Shoot first. Ask later.
What is wrong with this picture? Our country. Oh yeah, unbelievably Donald Trump is president. POTUS. Positively Outrageous Titan Under Siege.
