The shooting was first reported at around 3 a.m., with the station noting that the intersection where it took place is only a few blocks from Coors Field.

Get rid of the hobos, get rid of the problem. Hubby works right where this happened. Every morning they have to clean up after the homeless people at their front door. Drug baggies, needles, booze, urine. Disgusting.

Nothing wrong with someone getting shot, long as its the right person.

A tweet with no valid information is considered reliable news? Amazing.

@SpottedDick Absolutely! Keep all of the dumbass drunken jocks, broheims, brotards, sorority hoo haws, entitled assholes, sports bar morons, and general assholes confined in one area where they can fight, vomit, chest pound, and show off for each other 24/7. Keep the dumbfucks at bay.
