A mourner is killed during the funeral for a murder victim.

The article under your link reads like it was written by my 3rd grade grand daughter.
I think that is indicative of the entire "climate" down there in the left armpit of Michigan. It just seems to spiral downward toward ever more stupidity and violence.

I was thinking the same thing. I'm not one who would normally comment on grammar when I'm reading these threads but this jibberish came from a news organization. I guess editing doesn't play a roll on the internet. ;?

Sadly, it is typical of the news stories out of that area. The language on the local evening news stations would be funny if the content wasn't so tragic. Probably has something to do with the quality of talent local news sources are able to hire and retain.

I drive by Flint on I-75 from time-to-time. Never comfortable until well past. I once was passed on I-75, halfway through Flint, by a speeding car, followed by several police cars, followed by witnessing a fight between two "citizens" and about 6 cops at the side of the expressway just north of town. Didn't hang around to see who won, but at least one cop was laid out on the pavement.

There are probably enough illegally-owned guns in Flint to equip everyone in the rest of the State north of Detroit (which has its own illegal arsenal).

For sure.
In line with your statement, all the recent talk about gun control makes me wonder if the Federales' have any freaking idea how many illegally "owned" firearms there are not only in that geographic section of Michigan but also in the entire country. Methinks not.

Unfortunately for me I have a weeks worth of time in Detroit coming up the end of this month. Pray for me.

^ looking for the like button. I absolutely detest how Traverse City makes such a big deal over that clown when he comes up there for the annual film festival. Course...........it's Traverse City and there are fewer and fewer native Northern Michigan people living there.
