Early last Sunday morning, July 14, a drive-by shooting took place in the 800 block of LeClaire where I grew up, striking both people and property. Our family’s car was struck by bullets during the drive-by while it was parked on the street. Bullets also flew through the front window of our neighbor’s home, ultimately stopped by a love-seat’s armrest.

Kathy Cody: With the reforms put in place this behavior will never stop because offenders are allowed back on the street time after time. These stupid reforms are not working and must be rescinded.

Dawn Bedell: it won't stop until the same resources available for the "more deserving poor" are made available to the those who are at the bottom of the barrel. Nepotism and band aide methods of a system quick to give fluff is not going to work so expect more bloodshed in the backyard of the family reunions of those who like to look down their noses at the ones who believe in the myths that keep people stuck at the basic levels where they are living one check away from being homeless or worse burying their songs or daughter.

Donnie Chapman: So Sad, our city needs help, and now.

Yo Yo: It is never going to stop

Yes this conundrum of violence leaves no one's safe.. in any place at any time..Now is the time for drone surveillance and mobile peace officer operation centers.. FEMA.may support.. obviously this won't stop the violence.. possibly only causing more division and misinterpretations of efforts..only to what ever end sir..It will be an effort to women and children killed
