    With the part of the police were they “responded quickly”… that’s all lies, they took 45min-1 hour for them to reach. The same car in the picture that has the bullet whole was park close to my house. The police just stopped flashed the car where it was shot for 2 minutes and just left. they didn’t do anything! They didn’t secure the area or the evidence, since multiple people was watch and touching the car more than the police did.
