    Awww, the poor drug dealer got shot. And our tax money is going to pay for his medical care. I thought this country was run under the assumption that criminals do not get the same rights as the rest of us. That if you break the law, your rights get suspended. If this was a known drug house, as the police have reported on other news station, they should either confiscate the property and arrest those living there, or they should quit their jobs. In either case, known drug houses should have first-responder rights revoked. No firemen, no EMT’s, and no police except to arrest everyone as suggested above. Known drug houses should also be illegal to insure. The whole concept of a “known drug house” is itself an indication of how askew our legal system has gotten. “Known drug houses” should only even exist for a matter of minutes.
    Enforce the law, and revoke the rights of criminals.

      Withhold medical treatment until the necessary answers are given by the perp. I’m sure that when this little boys family gets to the media, it will be all about him changing his life around for the better and being made a target by local police enforcement. Now the crime is not waiting for the sun to come up.

      First of get your facts right this young man was and is not a drug dealer nor is it a drug house. He in fact works full time to take care of his young son who was in the house when some person randomly targeted the house.

    I read a post where someone said said to build a wall around inner city’s . I am thinking this should be done before building a wall on our borders. At least the Mexicans are looking for work, these inner city losers are only looking for trouble. Their money is from Government , drugs, and stealing. They don’t want to work

    lets see.. the usual group of comments, including 1 AH who spams the comments with some lame attempt to get people into a scam for money.

    Fact is, shootings seem to be on the rise in G.R. Maybe its cause detroit shut down and a lot of its undesirables migrated to the west side of the state. I hear the other cities, Holland, Grand Haven, Muskegon are also experiencing higher levels of this kind of activity. Muskegon Heights has always been bad, and its gotten worse too, from what I hear from friends that live near it.
