  1. A shooting at a Mishawaka apartment complex has left a man dead. A Man??!!
    The dead man was a CHILD of 13. He probably had no facial hair to shave and his voice had not changed yet. Thirteen is one away from twelve. When is the media going to pay attention to what they write or say? The bigger question? Why is this world so mean and hateful?
