Default What is up with the gang Walmart thing?

Did anyone hear about this? Something with gang members having to shoot three women at Wal-marts?

WTF??????? Really. What a ridiculous power playing game. I am so sick of gangs and what-have-you scaring people from living their lives. The good people of this world really need to figure something out about how to take back their world from these punk losers. They want to go around shooting up their own-whatever-but innocent people? Sick. Makes me sick to my stomach.

And of course, the law can only do so much.

Anyway, I really didn't hear the details on this, just got a phone msg about it.

Same thing is being e-mailed around where I live in California. It was on the news this morning. They said it is believed to be a hoax but Walmart will be beefing up security as a precaution.

It came by text message to us here in S.E. Georgia also.
The local news here reported it to be a nation wide hoax.

Yet another reason not to go to those glorified flea-markets. Even if it's not true, it certainly wouldn't surprise me.

Well, where ever they are in the Detroit area. It wasn't specific. Doesn't really matter where I suppose. Stupid idea, nonetheless.

Thanks to all for letting me know this is a hoax. Crazy thing is that it was on the news too. Hmmm.

Doesn't change the way I feel about gangs and punks that go around scaring people.
