    Should we blame the school system for this one? Bet he was in a first grade class where the “brown” people were the majority/minority/whatever you need to call it. No wonder the teachers don’t drive through or visit this neighborhood as has been previously suggested…..no thanks. #noshotsfired #dontlikebulletholes

    Before I read this, I took a look at the photo and tried to guess what this story was about. I guessed that this guy looked in the mirror after a haircut and tried to kill his barber. I guess I was wrong, he must like the look.
