Tuesday, May 27, 2014 — A Susanville man was charged with attempted murder after Susanville Police Department officers responded to an alleged altercation with a firearm at about 12:15 p.m. Friday, May 23 in the area of the 1600 block of Fifth Street.

According to a press release from the police department, two people in the Susanville Grocery Outlet parking lot stopped officers en route to the scene and claimed Jerome Thomas, 21, allegedly fired several shots with a rifle toward their vehicle.

I love writing about other people and using their names. I am not a well educated person, Because I never listened to when things were important. When they were, I just laughed and thought in my wierd brain.. Ha-Ha... I am so funny. Look at me. I am like so funny... :D Everyone is laughing at me aren't they... Oh ya!!!! This article is so funny.....Man is arrested for trying to shoot people in Susanville.. Oh look at me. I am so funny. I laugh at the dumb things. Guess I will try and blame others for my stupid way of thinking. Who else can I accuse of being like me?

Will someone please stop using my name and realize that I am devoted to Susanville and my comments speak loudly about THUGS.I love this Newspaper and respect it. I dont like when I am being used as a experimental developement. As far as the NRA goes. I feel a need to leave weapons in the hands of Law Enforcement O-N-L-Y. There are to many loose cannons out there with loose minds.The good days of responible people are over. Young minds are filled with gang bang rap. What ever happened to Moon River and Andy Williams? Soft Rock like the Eagles? At least the Hippies lived by a non violent culture. Now they are like Day's Of The Future Past.
