      It is my right to defend myself, if it leads to a lethal encounter that is not my fault. Killing someone is never on my list of things to do but that doesn’t mean I won’t do it if backed in a corner.

        I wonder if Lagios read this. I also wonder if he knows he has been turned in to Homeland Security for his anti- American remarks. He is just the kind of pimple they want to know about.

          And I wonder if its time for Peter Lagios to make another trip to the fifth floor of Mercy Hospital?

          “Successful Community activist” Hahaha, that’s a classic. It’s also akin to saying you are a successful business man and model citizen.

          I feel COMMUNITY SLUG is more of an appropriate title for you.

    I have noticed the Globe, and our MCPD don’t like to let us know about shootings, stabbings, bodies being found at various locations around town?
    I know this probably isn’t what the chamber wants you to read about, but I certainly think the public deserves to know, who, what , when, how?
    Body in Hanford park last week, body at Lime Creek nature center? Also really deserve to hear more about the multiple fights and happenings at MCHS? Again, these are not what administrators like you to know about, but people deserve to know the whole story about

      So you expect matt to print a story here on something that was your imagination? I do believe he has better class than that. Maybe that Somalian was just looking for a date?

      I don’t think they report on suicides.

        These days it’s hard to tell if they really are suicides

    Was this guy the intended target? Is this isolated or is there a gray car driving around town shooting at people?

      Great questions. Let’s hope the police get to the bottom of this.
