    How come so many black men feel the need to use deadly force to settle a simple verbal disagreement? It happens way too often.

    This is an outrage! Where is the new mayor when a stabbing takes place???? We need more “knife control”. We must get all knives off the street. The gun control program is working so well amongst the bad guys, now we need to expand it to include knifes. Come on, let’s outlaw all knives over 2 inches in length.
