    Don’t you hate it when people ignore the Gun Free Zone signs?

    There must not have been enough visible signs stating that it was one. It is illegal to carry a gun in a gun free zone, and therefore 100% impossible to ever occur. I say more signs, less police. Simple solution to reducing crime.

    What did the suspects look like so we can be on the lookout for them? Any physical descriptions, hair cut sytle, facial hair, height, male or female, any other defining features?

    Perhaps they were Invisible-Americans.

    That is funny. There are never any descriptions. 5 cameras at every intersection and never any photos either.
