    I was never one to say 'good' when people get arrested, but I say it now 'all the time' when it comes to these shootings. So good! You're shooting your brothers out there. C'mon now man. You like guns? You like to shoot people? Go help people who's lives are being wasted by aggressive foreign forces. Back in the day people got shot for a dam good reason. Not over this petty street bickering.
