Six-year-old Quianna Tompkins is one of two innocent bystanders who were shot Friday night on the 300 block of West 105th Street.
Ironically, both were at a yearly memorial to remember a 24-year-old shot and killed while sitting on a porch five years ago. Tempest Abdullah’s 52-year old aunt was the other bystander shot. And it was her daughter who was playing with Quianna on a scooter when the shooting started on the street, catching her in the crossfire.
So, they are enraged that a senseless shooting happens in a city where only the criminals and the authorities have access to firearms.

Don’t laugh, the principle is working rather well in Venezuela.
