Very tragic indeed.

Why are we hearing about this from a newspaper in Australia!?

Crime in an apartment complex? You don't say... Take out "university" from the story and this would be buried on TF with 0 comments..

Three dead, two injured in shooting at Auburn University off-campus housing complex

Apartment building = off campus complex?

LOL. Nicely done, subby.

Near large colleges, there are often apartment buildings that have a loose affiliation with the college, mostly for older or graduate students.

Probably a stretch, but it was likely mostly inhabited by stidents. Most big schools will have a "student ghetto" nearby. They can be a pretry damned fun place to live.

Football leads to more crime then meth it seems.

What a waste.

bulldg4life: Football players involved?


The rumor is that all three dead were football players, though two seem to have left the team this spring. I feel kind of weird posting the names without any official confirmation.

It's not affiliated with the college, but it's almost entirely inhabited by students.

For those of us who don't follow Auburn Football are any of these 3 players?

I understand, but the article (and most others) imply that the building is affiliated with Auburn, which is false.

Sure, whatever, but which political party do I need to blame for this?

"Vines said he punched one of the men, while his friend hit both of the men over the head with a bottle."

Seems like if they decide to prosecute Vines for assault, it should be the easiest conviction ever. What a maroon.

2 former, 1 current. Yes.

Grrrr....I hate to hear crap like this. Such a goddamn waste. :(

Here's some (unconfirmed) details from people who live there. Link

Sending a lot of love and positive vibes toward the Auburn community, today.

Exactly, because criminals would never get guns if they were banned.

Sounds like Vines and his friend also escalated things a bit.

I'm sure they were just "standing their ground."

Australia doesn't have a second amendment. If Australia DID have a second amendment, it would be Australia's, not 'ours' (Americas).

I think it's to do with time zones, like how they get to celebrate New Years Day before everyone else. And as seen in JFK, they also get the news first.

This incident happened in Auburn, AL, but has become international news. I imagine subby is from Down Under.

Five dead, 35 wounded - including boy, 16

Young men (thugs), alcohol (drugs), and women (skanks)...this ends badly???

Two former players dead, and also a current player. So I guess they have a scholarship available, eh?

Because CNN's website (as of 10:22 CST) is too busy talking about I'll Have Another running in the Belmont Stakes yesterday:

(That was actually the first place I checked when I heard about it. Had to go to Fox News to actually find out what happened. Should have come here first.)
 
2012-06-10 11:42:53 AM
It's showing up in the Atlanta media (Auburn is about 100 miles away). No official word of nuthin'.

Why does this news trump every other shooting that happened and got buried in the obit section?

Begoggle: Why does this news trump every other shooting that happened and got buried in the obit section?


Because if it can be linked to a school it gives the impression that the victims were kids and not adults and raises the emotional impact.

butthurt much? These people are the sacrifice we make for our rights, you should at least have the decency to admit it. The tree of liberty and so forth. I never said guns should be banned or anything like that.

Just acknowledge their sacrifice. That's all.
