‘Possible’ gang related. Possible.

Gang fireworks display.

Chicago’s gunfire body count for the holiday weekend was 101 people shot- 15 dead and 86 wounded:


Let’s hope that pattern doesn’t catch on out here.

Per capita Santa Barbara County is not far off… Some of our folks do it with cars instead of guns, same results!

Let me guess….

Wow I guess they are inspired by Chicago….do we even have police anymore in America? I see them but their effectiveness is falling a little short IMO….

OMG, You’re kidding, no way!

They must have got confused and heard “glock” party instead of block party.

An understandable mistake.
