  1. Any rationally managed entity would have this loser in prison a long time ago. Of course rationally managed is one thing Anchorage hasn’t been in a long time. Hope some of those new federal dollars help with fixing a few of Berkie’s many failures. Of course the unions and natives will reelect him. Congrats to Doll for (seemingly) going over the mayor’s head for federal help.

  2. Any follow up on this? Let me guess…she’s the mother of the 12-year-old. Not much of a chance for the poor kid if this is his mother. No wonder. With a rap sheet like that is anyone really surprised the kid got his hands on a gun? (if this is his momma)
