Vito Spago was born in a broken family thats why. His dad must always put him down constantly. We must feel sorry for his children.

I can't either. Last year same night 3 different instances and others around my area were calling 911 with same thing about shots being fired.

Well come with me to the gun range and I will let you listen. Gunfire is very sharp and short. Not like TV/movies at all. TV/movie sound does not sample the gunfire sound at a high enough rate to pick up the high frequencies that make the sound so distinctive. Also why would you automatically think gunfire in your neighborhood. Folks here in Walnut/Diamond bar would very very unlikely experience gunfire like that. Probability of that happening is astronomically low. Hey, Arnold. Please delete your multiple posts. You look computer illiterate.

Fireworks and some gun fire sound the same at a distance. If you were in the military you would know this.
