shooting

All this senseless shooting. What exactly are They fighting for? nobody wins when you act this way. Nobody's getting rich, nobody's going to become famous... What are they lookin for power? Respect? What cause can be so important that you feel you're entitled to someone else's life? They have been shooting non-stop for last 2 days!!! Why should I have to kiss my son goodbye before I take out my trash cuz I might not make it back upstairs?

  • So sad. God bless you.

Encouraging news from Mariano's about South Shore.

This sounds promising, although, I'm dumbfounded by the negative comment about the commuter train. One would think locating a grocer on a commuter rail stop would be a good thing, making the store much more accessible to residents nearby.

Another store closing

Well they closed another store. I guess it was because someone got shot at the 81st and exchange store. It wasn't the store's fault someone got shot. Now the same people that were shooting at each other have only 2 stores they can go to close by. Hmmm, I wonder if this will lead to them shooting at the next store.

    But that's the police's job not the business. The thing all these places have in common, is that money is being spent. That's what attracts those the people standing outside. They are trying to make a living. Whether it is legal or not I don't see any businesses up and down 79th street that are hiring. Or 87th or 67th so let's not assume that the people outside the store are losers. And then again there are different types of people, but not all are trouble makers. Let's not look down on those less fortunate than ourselves. Irregardless I need to have a store open that I can get food and drink from.

    Perhaps I did not make myself clear...I am not speaking on those less fortunate Jay.Ii am speaking on those who have a gun and plan on using it to harm those who will stop them from selling their drugs...and not the drugs that are being sold INSIDE a store...and since...

    Perhaps I did not make myself clear...I am not speaking on those less fortunate Jay.Ii am speaking on those who have a gun and plan on using it to harm those who will stop them from selling their drugs...and not the drugs that are being sold INSIDE a store...and since my truck was hit by stray bullet from those making a living in front of a corner store, I feel that I can use the word looser, since I am not able to use the word I would like. As for who job it is ....it is ALL of our job to create a better environment for our neighborhoods...but hey...you can't fault people for being scared of being killed when standing up for a cause can we...including myself... we are human so we are going to pick and choose our battles....this one however is a challenge that even the police are scared to tackle. As for your store issues...unless you were directly impacted by the closing of Dominick's in your neighborhood...sadly, your area just returned back to which it was prior to that store opening...another grocery dessert in another black community in dire need of a grocery store..
