  1. Why was the tow driver in both lanes while the suspect was driving up in the right lane ??? No life should have been lost , RIP . & no audio until the shooting occurs ..

  2. It’s crazy how people really feel that they will not have to pay for their actions. This person will have their day. It’s coming…
