    You are ignorant. Brooklyn Park is the 6th largest city in Minnesota. Do you really want to stereotype everyone who lives there?

    For each car they shot, they should be shot in the ass.

    I know the driver, Ryan Gerken, a cowardly little white man still living with mommy. Herd first thing he did when arrested was pee his pants and call mommy. He has been vandalising our area for years just first time he got caught. Hopefully they will put wheels back on the house and move it out.
