Alabama police are looking for answers after a teenager was killed by gunfire that went through his bedroom window, officials said.
The incident occurred Friday night in Tuscaloosa, with police saying the 13-year-old was playing with his iPad when he was fatally struck in the head.
“There were so many shell casings in the road, officers had to pull business cards from their wallets to fold and use as temporary evidence markers,” reads a Facebook announcement shared Saturday by the Tuscaloosa Police Department.
It never stops.
Congress, do something to end handgun crime / street violence.
It's not going to happen, Roy.
One side of the aisle wants less funding for police and more funding to specialty needs and the other side of the aisle wants less restrictive gun control, not more.
If more funding was put into stamping out gang crime, like literally starting entirely new sectors in police forces in cities dedicated to nothing but eradicating gang crime through policing and community outreach(yes, some cities already have this but it's very limited and underfunded and not working in tandem with the FBI's bureau for organized crime) and also this country and it's politicians embraced real gun control reform, with an emphasis on handgun control, maybe major strides could be made to stop this type of crime and violence in America.
Unfortunately, both sides of the aisle have their heads so far up their asses they can't see their stubbornness is literally killing tens of thousands of Americans each year.
If a foreign entity killed tens of thousands of Americans every year, this country would be obliterating them in a war. But, Americans killing Americans to the tune of 250,000 to 350,000 deaths every decade is somehow okay and "the price we pay for freedom", as some say.
The whole thing is worse than a Shakespearean tragedy!
