Why do we want Puerto Rico to become a state? Don't we already have enough places in this country where idiots commit drive by shootings?

OH NO!    

Puerto Rico is mostly a ghetto with a few nice locations. You would be nuts to be 'rollin' around there if you had money, and you didn't have to be there.

Families do this on purpose. Just like with Emmanuel Steward. They are preparing a statement and will make it within the hour.
