""This fund is being started for my wonderful nephew Blake. Blake lost his life due to senseless gun violence trying to do the right thing and protecting others," Trujillo wrote on the page."

A senseless explanation of what took place. The gun didn't load itself, didn't put itself in the perpetrator's purse, didn't point itself, and didn't discharge by itself. Blake lost his life because of "progressive" politicians/prosecutors allowing someone with a long criminal history out on the streets instead of out of circulation in a jail where they couldn't commit more crimes or hurt/kill anyone.

Unfortunately, we can expect more events like this to take place in the future because of Pamela Price. She will be looking for ways ("diversions") to be "equitable" to the criminals, not holding them accountable for their actions, and referring to their preplanned acts of crime as "gun violence".

So glad we have a city and community that looks after each other. Bless you and your family, Blake.

Michael, perhaps instead of shamelessly nitpicking the word choice of a bereaved soul to make an assertion about your chief political issue, you could simply keep it to yourself.

I'm not a fan of Pamela Price and I'm not a gun control advocate. But I don't see the value in condescending to somebody in a state of grief after their loved one's murder. Have a sense of propriety and shame.

Sounds like Ian who is being condescending. MB is simply stating an opinion based on facts. Ian should take his holier than thou somewhere else.
