Kevin, It took me awhile but I "THINK?" I finally got it !!!!! 15 Years ago ,these two thugs would have been the same age as those "bunch of white kids " who got murdered in Newtown. Is that the similarity you were refering to? If it is ,how tragic and i am outraged those 'suburbanites' dont care!!! Can you tell me where i can drop off some Teddy Bears and show some respect?


What are you talking about, I can't make any sense out of your comparison, and I made no comment on anything in the press release, Are you trying to stir something up that isn't there?

Kevin, PLEASE go back and read your post under the heading 'WHY DONT HARTFORDS PARENTS MATTER" Then please read mine April 9th at 9:30 pm (TWICE IF YOU HAVE TO). These two S@%TBAGS represent what happens day in and day out across our major cities ,and im supposed to feel as sorry for their parents as those in Newtown? Who do you think enables these idiots to live that lifestyle? You think they put up 1st and lasts monthes rent and they all live together and nobody knows about the drugs, guns, etc ? You really think we should have saved seats for this "mommy" and "daddy" when Obama came to town? Obviously you hit a cord with me. You dont make too many mistakes with your opinions but you got to "MAN UP" and say you were a little off target by comparing HTFD and Newtown as being the same. Thanks for letting me express myself


OK. I think that makes a little more sense, but these are the shooter's , not the victims. If they were the victims , you might have a valid point. I just posted their arrest photo's and I was not surprised by the footnote."Simmons has 28 previous Hartford arrests
Harris has 24 previous Hartford arrests"

How does this happen and why are they still roaming Hartford's streets with guns?

That sir, is THE question!

Regarding your comment at 4:45,"MOST" of the city's victims are mirroring the lifestyle of the shooters. So in "MOST" cases there is no difference between the two. As far as roaming the streets ....they have to live somewhere. Why is the bulk of the community allowing them to live among them? When I see activists and clergy hold rally's or marches.there aren't many people particapating. why is that?
