    This man, 67 years of age, was standing around, minding his business, when these knuckleheads, ride up and to shoot this man for no apparent reason of whatsoever, when will this craziness needs to stop, this is unnecessary to go out and to shoot this old man like that.

      Everything has a reason. If it was robbery that's random but to just shoot someone for no reason that doesn't happen this is a personal issue.

    Back in Billy's day, kids were content shooting at cans and bottles with BB guns, maybe the occasional bird. Nowadays kids hunt people with real guns. The world sure has gone downhill. = (
