A car driving slow, then the sounds of gunfire and the quick illumination of nearby fields.

Karl H. Riedel, 52, watched this surreal scene play out Thursday morning in front of his home in the 2700 block of Boos Road.

“I thought, ‘Oh my God’. I was too busy watching, stunned,” Riedel said. “Then I grabbed my gun to chase after them, but then I thought better of it.”

 What, a drive-by into cornfields on Boos Rd?   I wonder if people saw a dangerous animal and decided to take care of it themselves. A coyote or bobcat ?

Probably the individuals that were firing the guns, have been arrested before and I am sure they will be arrested again, this is just another case where people are being turned loose with  little or no punishment for crimes that they have committed.  In order to get these situations resolved it is going to take firm actions by the prosecutors and stiff action by the judges or we will be facing one more of these situations, near future.  and I am sure that the parents play major roles in the upbringing of these individuals, practically everything that happens is a direct result of the child's upbringing.

This is obviously George Bush's fault!

When my homies got back to the hood, they said they fired 26 shots. Now who's kidding who here??

Maybe all those gunshots came from a propane cannon used to scare birds from a crop field?

Sounds like someone is practicing up to defend themselves or to go hunting.  If the two-bit, liberal typical thugs from the city are going out to Boos Rd. to practice, then we are in deep trouble.  Sounds like someone got a new firearm and is getting ready.  I am definitely ready.  I already know you can NOT expect LE to come in time to save you or your family.  It is up to YOU to defend yourselves.  I love the moronic idea of being helpless unarmed imbeciles expecting government to protect and save us.  LE will get there, but only in time to "investigate" the aftermath.  I am loaded up and ready so bring it on.  It is funny how the Founding Fathers wanted us armed.  They felt it was so important they placed it in the SECOND Amendment.  They wanted us armed to defend ourselves from the government.  Imagine that.

 There are more suitable places to target practice. If you dont have permission to be on someones property ,by all means ,dont shoot a gun into their property !  I  really hope there is a logical explanation for what happened..

 Shooting from a moving vehicle gets turned into a second amendment argument against liberalism. I think I would have been freaked out had it happened in front of my house. Taxpayer: You forgot the Ha Ha part of your usual rant.
