Norristown used to be such a beautiful area but it never will be since somebody is too busy pocketing money. Police say they are here to catch "bad guys" while they hang out at Main Street Pizza and stuff their faces. How is that I can see drugs deals daily at the Sunoco on Main St, at the Mcdonalds on Main and 202 but there are never cops around to "stop it"

it's these kind of people that ruin it for all of the hard, honest working citizens of norristown. not only do we have to pay for your bummy ass sitting at home collecting welfare, but we have to deal with your senseless acts of violence also? i can't wait to move out of norristown, cause it's people like this that have yet to grow up. as bad as it sounds, the world would be much better without these mindless thugs who thinking banging ugly woman, and sitting on the porch smoking cheap ass weed is life.

Frankly, I'm glad these animals are shooting each other. I only wish there had been three clean head shots to save the tax payers some money on a trial.
rose August 08, 2012 at 06:47 PM
Yeah, you want three clean head shots, you asshole, what if it was your family members? Think about it, dumb ass your no better then them, your the one who needs to be shot in the head............stupid
Lance Boulder August 08, 2012 at 11:24 PM
but it wouldn't be our families. cause at least my family have decent jobs, with our heads on straight. not running around shooting up neighborhoods. throwing around words like dumbass and stupid doesn't get your point across, it makes you sound immature. wishing people were dead isn't the nicest thing to say in the world, but speaking on behalf of those families on that street, i'm sure that they wouldn't have minded if the thugs killed themselves in the shooting spree. and saying that Arch needs to be shot in the head? YOU'RE no better than them.

And as the story is unfolding and the details come out, are you sure you still want to defend these monsters that live among us and worry about thier family members Ms. Rose? If these creeps had been killed, they would have gotten exactly what thier behavior dictated. I stand by my original post, this world would be so much better with these people in the ground.
Joe August 09, 2012 at 11:56 AM
@rose - wake up would you. I can't believe you would come to the defense of these thugs. I agree they should of taken one between he eyes. They weren't worried about the innocent people sleeping in the neighborhood who could of accidentally been shot by machine gun fire. It's becoming the wild west on the streets of Norristown.
