Kids today. No initiative. So entitled. So lazy. In my day when the supermarket made our pizza wrong, by god we’d all take the time and effort to get out of our stolen car and go inside before we started indiscriminately spraying bullets around in broad daylight like a bunch of drugged up wannabe gangster buffoons. That’s just how it was back then. You dealt with problems head-on and face to face like men, the way your daddy and his daddy before him did. Not like today. No respect, I tell ya. None.
An undercover detective was conducting surveillance near the D.B. Todd Market at 1509 D.B. Todd Jr. Boulevard when he witnessed the gunfire around 2 p.m. Tuesday.
The detective followed the suspects’ vehicle to a house on 32nd Avenue North and called for backup.
Three occupants in the vehicle, ages 16, 17 and 18, were arrested. The vehicle, a white Honda Accord, had been reported stolen.
One of the suspects told police that the gunfire was directed at the market because the clerk gave them the pizza with the wrong toppings.
All three of these disobedient hellions have been charged with 12 counts of aggravated assault, unlawful gun possession and vehicle theft. Djuan Bowers and Tynerick Turner, the two older ones who are clearly setting a poor example for their young friend who will hopefully realize soon that he’s running with a bad crowd and get himself back on the straight and narrow like a good boy before it’s too late, were also charged in connection with a robbery in February. Bowers was last reported to be in custody, where he probably gets all the pizza he wants and can watch himself on the news on his very own TV while he eats. Wouldn’t want any of these beautiful snowflakes to melt, you know.
