THE HACKLEY REPORT By Eric Hackley
Eric Hackley: What have you learned today while being here at the Frost picnic?
Ticamarie: I’ve learned that don’t hate people, love them and you can learn things from new people.
EH: What made you curious about me?
Ticamarie: I saw you talking and videotaping something and it made me curious.
EH: Well I’m just getting people’s opinions on different issues affecting our lives. Do you like Fort Wayne?
Ticamarie: No, It’s kind of dangerous. There’s too many things going on like killing and people shooting back at cops. People breaking into people’s houses and killing them for no reason. There was a baby who got killed in Chicago and she was only six months old and she was shot five times.
EH: What can we do about that because no one has any answers?
Ticamarie: Well, you could get the people who are doing the gang banging together and ask them, why are you are doing this?
EH: How do you remain mentally positive?
Ticamarie: I just try to stay safe and pray for the people who are doing bad things.
