So who is the shooter? I know of circumstances where people are hunted down over less life threating issues ... What gives here? No name of driver ; no name of shooter who has yet to be arrested??? Something is not right here ...

The shooter has been identified, just the name not being released to the public...I guess being a drug dealer you get to have your name with held…I think that the driver should have been arrested. Fleeing the police I thought was a serious crime, and I am wondering if the same judge that gave her the fines, is the same judge that has let Mr. Stephens off in the past, as well as Mr. Stephens cousin Jasmine Stephens. She was arrested for robbing the boat house with her friend Tevin Campbell...which that judge let them off many times with a slap on the wrist..Jasmine and Teven have since broken into many homes in the East Hampton area over this past winter and they are still out walking and causing crimes...lets go judge cahill…
