    One can only imagine what petty thing they were fighting about.

  2. The infestation of thugs, thug wannabes, gangbangers, hookers and drug dealers in this neighborhood seems to be on the rise again. I see open drug deals and brazen prostitution in that area all the time. Absolute lawlessness – and cop cars cruise the area constantly, but I never see them stop or get out of their cars.
