Just imagine if murder rates were not at historical lows in LA County! Who ever is measuring crime needs a new yard-stick.

What Happened to Madame Chasen in Beverly Hills? Didn't see a red dot.

How many of these are gang related?? Usual suspects my guess. Wonderful peaceful City we have here. FBI stats just came out and the 5 TOP most dangerous Cities for violent crime all have one glaring thing in common. Take a wild guess.

Murderer! Blood is on your shoulders
Kill I today you cannot kill I tommorow
Murder! Your insides must be hollow
How does it feel to take the life of another
Yes, you can hide from man but not your conscience
You eat the bread of sorrow
Drink the wine of violence
Allowed yourself to be conquered by the serpent
Why did you disobey the first commandment
Walk through the valley I fear no pestilence
God is my witness and He is my evidence
Lift up my eyes from wenth commeth help
You will never escape this judgement
I tell you, all men are created equal
But behind the trigger its a different sequel
Some are murdering people just to collect medals
Stop commiting dirty acts for the high officials
You could wash your hands until you cant wash no more
Its like an epidemic and you won't find a cure
Upper class you could be rich, middle class whether you are poor
Only the righteous won't feel insecure
Have you ever thought about your skill getting bored
Drinking sulphur bitters wont be bitter like your end
Only God can help you, no family or friend
Don't let the curse be upon your children's children
Abednigo, Shadreck, Meshek, Daniel in the den
Jonah in the whale's belly, but he was never condemned
Job with the leprosy, and he still reached heaven
He will do for you everything He has done for them
