Andy Lopez was gunned down, by a sheriff, in a neighborhood that has for the most part been forgotten about by the powers that be. Moreover, the youth in the area in which he was killed do not have a park for recreational use. Andy, and many kids, instead of playing at a park used a vacant field to play. There, many of these kids actively played with air soft "guns." The very type of "gun" Andy was killed with as he was walking by this empty lot and on his way to return the air soft "gun" to a friend, the rightful owner. Let us come together, and be sure the kids in that neighborhood are parkless no longer!
