How horrible! I make sure my kids wear clear, non-prescription glasses or sunglasses when they are in public. I hope these idiots are caught soon.

This is heartbreaking, that poor child! We now can not even go walking without the fear of being shot at, so disgusting.

These days, you simply cannot go walking along any street without wearing protective gear: Eye protection, leather clothing, etc. Things are getting worse! Be very careful out there and keep your cell-phone handy.
