Benjamin Orr: apoptotic: Tom_Slick: AJC Article with more information

"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.

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


They don' play dat! They keeps it real, yo!

(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.)

I have a hard time caring about these people.

Idiot adults who got scholarships to go to college (to play football), something many only dream of wind up waste their opportunities by drinking and fighting...and losing that fight.

Yup, nothing to see here. Move along.

Witnesses say there were 2 shooters. These 2 punks crashed the party and made some comment to a girl. A fist fight broke out between Vines and one of the punks. The punk grabbed his gun and started shooting, hitting Ed Christian, who went in to break up the fight. Ladarius Phillips jumped the punk and was shot by punk #2.

Americans + alcohol + guns = very bad combination

It's great that you have based your conclusions on all of the extremely detailed accounts of the incident and not on any preconceptions.

Tom_Slick: Ima10urin8: Unofficial: Ed Christian pronounced dead at university village. Ladarious Phillips dead in hospital, Eric Mack still alive in hospital

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


Was, Was, Maybe

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

Apartment building = off campus complex?

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.


Yup, I loved the student ghetto. Red cups littered everywhere, loud music 24-7.

Plus all the normal people moved out

Just watched the press conference. This entire situation is sad. My best wishes go out to the families of the victims and the Auburn University community.

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.


I am curious: do you suffer physical discomfort as a direct result of your mental incompetence?

liam76: Vines said he punched one of the men, while Pitts hit both of the men over the head with a bottle. Either one or both of the two men then started shooting, he said. He said his friend was shot and killed, while two others also were hit by gunfire. Vines said he had never before seen the men who he had been arguing with.

If that is the whole story of the physical altercation, I really don't give a rats ass if those guys got shot. I feel bad fro anyone who was trying to break it up or not involved.


Actually a lot of doubt has been cast on this story. Several people are even questioning if Vines was present at the incident.

I don't know why someone involved in something like this would lie to make it look like they threw the first punch, and I don't know why someone would lie to say they were there, but I do no why people would lie to downplay those things.

I don't have a clue either. We will probably have to wait for more complete details to come out of the police after they make an arrest of the suspect they are currently seeking in this case in Montgomery.

One of the victims, Demario Pitts, had gun problems earlier this year.

Auburn High sophomore dies in shooting

when i was at auburn, living in off campus housing, dude next door had a standoff with police. what appeared to be swat officers were pulling people out of their windows when they pulled into my parking lot.
he had a hunting rifle and demanded hamburgers and a phone to call his mom.
they dropped a paper bag at his doorway, i think it was the "hamburgers" and the concussion grenade inside went off and they dogpiled him.
we watched from the fire escape while drinking screwdrivers and miller lites.
hadn't thought of that night in a damn while.
this was on thatch ave, like 2 blocks from the main university gate, across from the old movies and munchies.

Get some information before running your mouth, dumbass.

Word of advice. Don't go to the funerals.
 
2012-06-10 07:51:39 PM  
So..when do Al Sharpton and Jesse Jacskon show up?

Oh, I see, only show up when a white person (or alleged white person) does the shooting

Having been to parties at AU before, and in the complexes near the campus, I can safely say something was going down more than just a party

Barners killing one another.

the practice of bringng 'gladiators' onto campus (nationwide) to mingle with kids there pursuing higher learning... is not good.
 
2012-06-11 09:20:55 PM  
I can't speak for the others, but Ed Christian went to school and played ball in the town where I live. From what I understand from several friends of mine who taught at his high school, he was a good kid. It's really unfortunate that these kids had their lives cut short because two random douchenozzles decided to crash a party looking for a confrontation. Thoughts go out to those who lost their lives as well as their families.
 
2012-06-11 10:58:23 PM  
I would have submitted with a headline something like: "Tree killed near Auburn University. This is not a repeat from last ye.... wait, it says *three* killed. Never mind."
