Fortunately, Maureen (my fiance) was too sick to go in today, but at the school where I previously taught, where she still teaches, fourteen rounds were fired by some punks that killed a student and wounded several others.

I told you my old school was a combat pit!!!

I know that neighborhood well, and I know the places where the bullets hit. I know the place well. Only a couple of weeks ago, Maureen and I had to sit in front of the school in her car and wait for Triple-A to come get the vehicle, which had died on her the day before. This easily could've happened at that time.

Last year, Philadelphia had 35 kids killed on or near school grounds, at times by parents involved in shootouts with each other while dropping off their kids, then killing someone else's kid because they can't aim with these cheap weapons... plus of course kids killing each other or getting in between dealers while they're shooting.

It's getting worse, folks.

I taught at Strawberry Mansion High School from September 1999 to June 2003, and finally got my transfer to George Washington HS up here in NE Philly. Until the end of this past August I lived close to Strawberry Mansion in Wynnefield/Overbrook, ten minutes away from the combat pit. A couple months after we moved, a Korean drycleaner was killed almost next door to our old apartment building, the Iroquois.

Philadelphia is a combat pit of a city where children are born to die. It's a shithole. I predict that the casualties are going to be similar to those of last year. I could be wrong, but I think it's going to be the same.

Or worse
The fatality rate will increase. If I had to bet all the money I have, I would say it would increase and continue to increase until there is one big country of crap and one small city where the few "good" people have escaped.

It's inevitable.
The politicians keep saying they want to get rid of guns, but they keep facilitating the cheap gun manufacturers. They have no intention of getting rid of the guns because right now they're getting what they want - the destruction of Black people.
