  1. Oh, wow! The police had a lot more background than they let on… good job guys. Corner Club is where it’s reported this guy started acting up, it was one of our favorite stops in college, not a bar for the timid in the late 1970s, too bad someone there didn’t lay this guy out earlier in the evening… he looks like a big pussy boy.

    • I haven’t read/seen any updates on how it went down. What you’re saying is they shot him down or disrespected him at the bar and he took revenge the same night? For how swift the spree was and for how long this dude was on the run I thought this thing was probably planned out way ahead of time.
