      Who? Who came “for a better life”? No names given, no mention of legal residence status, country of origin, no nothing, and you come up with that?!!! Scared much there, George?

          What common thread is that, copper’? Or is it just the common bigoted thought in your head that persists? Your train, along with George’s, is fueled by fear, belches racism thicker than any coal burnin’ locomotive of the past while spreading hysteria all along it’s track line.

          The victim wasn’t identified in the article, the shooter wasn’t identified, and you still can come to the conclusion that fits your phobia’s? Must be rough just goin’ outside…

        Nipomo/Santa Maria,
        neither victim not perpetrator not calling police?

        It certainly does seem like illegal immigrant/gang related, even though it isnt explicitly stated

          Got you too CC’?

          “It certainly does seem like illegal immigrant/gang related”… like the two are ALWAYS related or that it’s ALWAYS just those two that get into gun fights? What is always related? The scared as hell bunch will go to any lengths to prove out their bigoted and racist beliefs without thought to what is, or isn’t in this case, reported.
