    1. But it’s happening all over. Violence in the United States is strangely out of control and the two parties always working against each other instead of with each other isn’t hardly helping.

  1. New York City — how do you like the “NEW NORMAL OF CRIME” happening 24/7 in your state? Looks like your deluded democrat leadership is asleep at the wheel and the criminals are now running your state!

    To any sane New Yorkers: GET OUT OF N.Y. IF YOU VALUE YOUR LOVED ONE’S LIVES! Chaos is around the corner and people are being hurt AND NOT PROTECTED! If you stay, get armed for your own protection. Be Smarter than your lame government…

  2. these dirt bike riders are nothing more than gang members on motorcycles targeting white people, the same thing happened in springfield, ma., this type of atrocities needs to be stopped, either by law enforcement whom i feel their hands are tied because of the political left, or by concerned American citizens, we should not be afraid of dirt bikers on the road period
