claro, si no te gusta mi estilo inglés.. acá es mi estilo español frank.. pero espérate hasta la signa pa rvc se dice 'bienvenidos a centro rockville' buen día franco
Frank December 05, 2012 at 08:15 PM
@ Vete. Gracias. Es muy facil de comprender. Dime por qué hablamos espanol? que significa pasa de mi? Por que no Italiano? Yo hablar Italiano.. Claro, "Bienvenuti a Rockville Centre"
Frank December 05, 2012 at 08:35 PM
I'll gladly take a Spanish class if you take an English and Italian class. As for your tale on why people are posting I would call that racist. You are assuming "demographics" is the underlying reason when it is quite clear the reason is "crime".. . Do you not believe that the two are mutually exclusive from one another?
VeteAlaMierda December 05, 2012 at 08:42 PM
the crime from that corner is no higher than any other area in rvc.. please tell me as to why everyone is '100 percent' positive and that it's apparent and obvious that there's drug dealing there.. I'll wait.
Frank December 05, 2012 at 08:53 PM
That is a fair enough stance to take... @ RVC. Is there evidence to be had, relative to the overall crime statistics for RVC, that would suggest an increasing trend in that "small corner of the world"? As Vete said "we'll wait".
