    Here is another drive by shooting, They have not yet arrest any one. Crazy how they just get away from this. Another thing that's crazy is that they now have to pay for a high DR bill for something they had nothing to do with. I'm very sorry for her and her family, I pray for them. Be strong!

    First of all most of these comments will never seem to ever amaze me! After all people are just as ignorant as the words they type out,smdh! It doesn't matter how old she is, what color she is or if she resides on section-8, or has food stamps. What u fail to realize is the important part and that is that God spared her life so that she could be here another day to raise and watch her handsome son grow up. Yes she's a teenage mom,a daughter,granddaughter,niece,sister & aunt that has flaws just like everyone else in the world but silly behind negativity is what the family as well as she, can deal with out! Grow up and live ur own life! I don't recall anyone asking for u to take up or give donations while she recovers! FYI, she's young but her son stays clean,well fed, and dressed at all times! And please don't holler about ur tax paying dollars, get over it, unemployed/employed people are all living off of it or trying to find a way to get some type of assistance one way or another(it's still a recession)Everyone has skeletons in their closet, you just pray that urs don't get shook too hard when the door is open..! Being rude,immature & discourteous will get u no where in life. She's young & learning day by day. What's ur excuse(since u're so mature and full of "top-knowledge)?

      And you just may be a big part of the problem, Irritated. Saying it's fine to become a "slave" of the government, dependent on handouts? Tell me what kind of successful life you're going to have if you have a child out of wedlock when you're 17 or 18? Not much of one, even if you get every handout and grant available. It is not easy to RESPONSIBLY raise a child - takes a lot more than keeping them clean and fed. Especially during the teenage years, kids need TWO parents. People like you who condone this irresponsible kind of lifestyle are a HUGE part of the problem.

    Why isn't Bill Proctor out running his mouth when this is a black on black crime like this and the taxi cab murder or the round motel murder.

      Nobody knows what goes on in his mind. Probably ducking out of the limelight because it is out of his control and he can't hang with the boys

    this girl was reported as "young girl" .."high school age". I don't think so. Who are you trying to kid, reporter? And her FB is full of profanity. I'm supposed to feel sorry for her? She probably was the intended victim.

    To the young lady who was shot I offer you my best wishes for a speedy recovery! I also encourage you not to hang out in that area. Even though it should be safe to be able to be out anywhere in town unfortunately it is not. I hope you will take advantage of the local YMCA and other organizations for recreation. My wish is for you to enjoy a happy and healthy life. I hope TPD will note the criminals at the house on Ford Street. They are violent when they are "collecting" proceeds they obtain from dealing in crack. I know a young woman who was raped multiple times for a drug debt. TPD was unable to help because she was afraid to identify her attackers. They have a sophisticated drop system and an extensive distribution network.

    The urban league and the city do a neighbor rejuvenation about every 10 years in Frenchtown, it has never worked. Two years after millions have been spent it looks the same way as it did before.

      That's because the problem is the way these kids are raised - basic personality is formed by age 7. So all of these govt. programs that we tax-payers are funding are asically useless, and most of us are tired of seeing our money wasted. It is time to hold the parents accountable when these kids start their life of crime, which is usually in their early teens. And the govt. needs to stop rewarding these women to have kids that they have no plans to properly parent.

      You hit the nail on the head. Recently I called the City. I asked instead of pouring more good money after bad, please do something about Tennessee St where the college is. It was beautiful at one time. It can be again. There are some parts of Tallahassee they don't even let the parents see. Why should we neglect the one part of town that is bringing revenue - the colleges. Why do we keep pouring our hard earned taxes down a rabbit hole?

    This is an awful situation which unfortunately I believe is going to get worse. If it was my community I would take ownership of the situation and work to clean it up. If you are waiting on government to clean it aren't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    "A girl was shot". A lot of rhetoric and insults. A lot of finger pointing, with very few solutions. Let's look at some statistics from the FBI, Crime in the United States 2010 Report for a more honest discussion. The numbers in the report will not give us instant wisdom, but they should set the stage for a more honest discussion. Please follow this address for the federal report.

      Look at the Census Report for 2010. Blacks make up 12.6% of the population, yet they've been arrested for 30% of the crime. Whites make up 72.4% of the population and 67.1% of the crime.

        There are over 7 million people behind bars in the U.S. 93.2% are male. Sounds like a "man" thing, to me, not a racial issue.

        Also, 70% of all black children are born into single parent homes and I'm sure a large percentage of them end up with Grandma. If you don't want them, don't have them. If you're having them just to get a check, well shame on you, you are lower than snail slime.
