    1. WannabeAlberto/Fero, if you think El Paso is so unsafe, why don’t you move to Chicago or Dallas? And take your Trumptard friends with you. You all are not wanted here.

    1. And here commenting is the useless illegal maggot face alberto muerto eating all the hermit shit that IT thrives on. It is sad that this slime ball is allowed to live. Go eat shit and die you tele tubby asshole.

  1. Wherever there is alcohol; there is violence. “Alcohol is liquid courage” There is a liquor store down the way, right? Northeast City representative as a show of empathy be urged to tour violent crime scene locations that occur in thier precinct during watch as Governor & Presidents do to send a message.

    1. The only message those “Northeast City Representatives” will do is to demote you to 2nd grade English grammar and take away your GED. Cause you are not going foreword. Just backward. Case in point: “Thier”. Really? THere is spell check now you know?

      1. Its like saying you never saw a black American. You are so stupid you should go to your corner and swat yourself with a iron rod. That should cure you. Or kill you. I’ll accept both endings.
