Skip to comments.Neighbors: Suspect in poop shooting an emotional land mine
Posted on 02/18/2012 6:08:17 AM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
TYRIRK HARRIS and his girlfriend were well-known on their bustling Tacony block as lousy neighbors.
They hogged parking spaces. They took their time in silencing their frequently tripped car alarms. They let their two dogs run outside unleashed, biting and barking at passers-by and leaving piles of poo polka-dotting neighbors' yards.
The couple's hot temper was even more notorious.
Harris, 27, ended an argument over a snowy parking space last winter by placing his hand on his holstered gun, neighbors said. His girlfriend once posted a sign on her car, parked curbside, warning passers-by that she would shoot anyone who messed with it, neighbors said.
But Franklin Manuel Santana was new to the block. He, his wife and their newborn daughter moved from Miami to their first-floor apartment on Torresdale Avenue near Magee just a month ago.
So when Santana knocked on Harris' door late Tuesday afternoon to talk about the poo problem, he went unarmed - and unsuspecting.
Frances Fogarty, walking to the ShopRite to get T-bone steaks for Valentine's Day dinner, witnessed what happened next.
"Frank was calm, polite," Fogarty, 45, said yesterday. "He said: 'I'm just asking you, please keep your dog off my lawn. If I have to come back here, there's gonna be a problem.'
"Tyrirk said, 'Oh, is that a threat?' And then Tyrirk just pulled out the gun and shot him in the face. Then he stood over him and let out all the rest of the rounds, maybe nine or 10 more."

Shooter is bla... Oh, I mean A freakin’ American.
Unbelievable, that someone could actually think that someone coming to your door to talk about your dog is a reason to gun them down.
How the hell this guy has stayed out of prison up until now, befuddles me.
One of Holders people.. so, well never mind.
That's one I've never heard before. What was his momma smoking?
Death penalty for him, court-ordered sterilization for her.
Gets them both out of the gene pool.
This is truly ‘when the Shiite hits the fan’
Thai stick. And the “rirk” comes from upchucking her Morgan David 20/20.
No doubt Tyrirk was well known to the police, who were no doubt called many times by local neighbors, and no doubt said local police and/or local judicial system did jackshite about this sociopath, hence fostering his believe in his own invulnerability, hence fostering his increasingly aggressive anti-social behavior to the point of wanton slaughter of innocent neighbors.
Now can you guess just where Obama will get his brown shirt armed masses to institute his liberal fascist Utopia?
They are legion. And they are armed.
And they will begin their run in June of this year.

Watching the Dems spend years cheering the deaths of American soldiers in Iraq convinced me this country is split with irreconcilable differences. And the more I think about it, regardless of who wins in Nov., violence is coming.
Agreed. And it will come to urban areas first.

Hope this helps...
