  1. Total insanity. This even beats the stories where relatives get into fights at wakes and funerals. Now funeral processions on public streets are getting shot at. What next? Maybe someone will stop the the hearse, pull out the casket and open it and shoot the corpse. Or stomp on it. And don’t anybody say these people are acting like animals – animals do show this type of evil, malicious behavior. Only warped, sick, violent humans do this. And so much more of this is happening in Maywood.
