i doubt it has something to do with King Koopa Troopa. Otherwise that would mean our neighborhood would have an increase in shootings since January.

I always walked past that house and thought it was a boarding house. There were always a dozen people hanging out on the porch making a racket and when I heard it was the crime scene I just had to laugh about my not judging folks who look and act different.

Hmm--everyone is worried about the 5 year old. I think the 5 year old is already doomed. WTF is a 5 yr old doing up at 10:15pm SWIMMING?
