  • BigBinHP Changing the demo in your area

    LOL, yes, that's true but since you claim there were at least 100,000 or more attending, it's safe to say, they don't live here, so they don't count.

    See how that works? Keep bragging about all the people that attended because all you're doing is pointing out that most of the criminals attending don't actually live here.

    So great, keep the fest, lose the audience. That'd be perfect! More rides for actual residents.

  • Still lying I see. I said 100,000 at the four day festival, according to estimates. Not at the parade. Please stop lying. I know that is very difficult to do for you, but please try.

    James, reread slowly, " four people shot, gun fire ALL AROUND THE FEST, a couple of stabbings and of course the poor girl who came for the parade and was run over by PR Fest celebrators driving like lunatics"! Did you read "ALL AROUND THE FEST" that I placed in capitals for you to understand? Enough with AT THE FEST that is surrounded by fencing, armed police officers and subject to search to enter. Everyone here understands that once your in THE PR FEST, you are safe but within four blocks of the fest, you are four hundred percent more likely of getting shot than this last weekend without THE PR FEST!!!! The HP community gets it, do you? Still waiting for your answer to the meeting with other posters?
