I keep reading this thread as scooter on 96.

Actually aside from that it's not funny at all. How have they not found this person yet? What is wrong with people.

I read it that way too.

Someone firing at random from a moving vehicle = not easy to pinpoint.

Remember the DC shooter? Cops were certain it was someone in a white van, turned out to be someone shooting from the trunk of an Impala.

Get ready for the gun control backlash.

I was walking the dogs in the park behind my house last week and heard a couple pistol shots from near Loon Lk & Wixom rds, then several more that sounded like they were right at the intersection. Since then everytime I drive down Wixom road I see 3 cop cars driving up & down the road. I just wonder where the cops have been hiding for years as I rarely see them in my hood. Maybe hanging out in the ghetto keeping an eye on the Village people.

Yeah I'd watch out for 'em too.


In better news I made it to and from the dunes yesterday going down I-96. I even did 60 mph so he could get a better shot at me

Jesus... You guys have it shitty... our biggest problem is evading the Northern "Swamp Donkeys" that wander out in front of us on the highway...

Glad to hear it wasn't your wife that was hit... Crazy times, no wonder you guys all carry...
