    But concerning the double-shooting, looking at the map, its most likely a drug related shooting on that side of town.

    Not everyone who lives in that area are drug dealers and not everything that happens in that area is drug related. Have you ever been in the area? Before you start insinuating the reasons for the shooting get the facts.

    Still no follow-up though. They must be waiting for the early evening news, so that they'll have something to report. Kind of a slow news day. They still haven't done a follow up on the guy up here at Maria Parham hospital with the BB pistol.

    It is interesting, though, that no one challenged my tongue-in-cheek (a term used to refer to humor in which a statement, or an entire fictional work, is not meant to be taken seriously, but its lack of seriousness is subtle) comment about it being an overreaction on the part of the police? Hmmmmm....

    Oh, good grief. It was a joke. A touch of sarcasm in reference to the extremely brief article associated with the top headline. I'm not a democrat nor republican, and I certainly was not injecting anything about race. It was a satirical....oh, never mind. I forgot, this is golo.

    Wow, crazy comments. Let's see: so far we have race, political affiliation and drugs. I just hope everyone is okay.

    The laid off IBM'r comments are both chuckling and depressing. It all started with the Postal Workers...

    'oldfirehorse' injected the race issue probably because he is a democrat that thinks race is the root of everything. That is why they feel the need to bring it up all the time.

    oldfirehorse: Where are you getting the race thing!

    I'm sure he's getting it from the article about the 4 cops and a criminal who were shot dead in Oakland, CA. That article has been archived.

    But concerning the double-shooting, looking at the map, its most likely a drug related shooting on that side of town.
