Lawlessness Brings Destruction

What is up with people standing in the middle of the road??? I just barely missed a drunken male in the 15000 block of NE Sandy a couple nights ago. And now this. My condolences to the families affected.


Possibly a mental health issue, we may never know fully as that person is deceased. Sad situation for all.
