And what kind of stupid question lead to this quote from the mayor?

"It's not the second line that did the shooting," he said. "The cultural events are very important to us, it's like calling for an end to Mardi Gras because someone takes an opportunity to shoot someone during one of our parades."

Fun expiriment, close your eyes and try to guess which news anchor is talking.

Seriously, do they have voice box modification or something? How do they sound so much alike? Is all news in America just the same man and woman dubbing a bunch of actors?

There is a whole lotta derp in that story official comments wise. Pretty easy to tell these people didn't have anything written for them.

This is the second thread on it in 24 hours.  It was all over Google News yesterday with reports from multiple national outlets.

It may make you feel better to think that you're the only one that cares about black on black violence but its not true.

2013-05-14 07:44:25 AM  
I dont understand why people are SO BAD at killing other people.  Maybe if you had, you know, just walked through the crowd like a normal person and put a bullet into the back of his head, it would have gone over better than hiding on a sidestreet,  running at the crowd and firing wildly, and then fleeing.

Also, doing so without any sort of disguise what so ever.

fark people are stupid.

Heh. I was once accused of having a "network newscaster's voice:  resonant, smooth, without a regional accent."  I've never been one, but I did spend a lot  of time phoning all over the country.
 
2013-05-14 08:02:55 AM  
The media doesn't care about someone using a firearm that was obtained illegally as it doesn't afford them the opportunity to push for more gun control laws (rather it shows that gun control laws are useless).  Had the shooter purchased the gun at a gun show in Texas they'd be all over it.

Laws.

Why do civilians NEED parades in Louisiana?   I think only police should have parades.

gorfie: Had the shooter purchased the gun at a gun show in Texas they'd be all over it.


Maybe it was, once upon a time.  The weapon was purchased legally at one time, somewhere, sometime.  Maybe it was the sixth gun purchase that day by someone who had every intention of re-selling it on the black market.  We'll probably never know.

CSB -I grew up in a white church - a downtown, moderate Methodist church.  Went there for almost 25 years.  No one shot. Changed over to the nicest black church in town for a year or so before I moved away.  In that year, two members of our congregation were shot and killed.  One of them was a guy going out to get the Sunday paper and stumbling upon a carjacking.  No one was really surprised.

Anyway, I know conservatives deserve a share of the blame for the problem, because they ignore it.  But liberals are also part of the problem.  I know it's fun to watch Law & Order (or every other scripted crime show on television) and see the homicidal antics of moderately attractive wealthy white people, but I can't help but think that all the paternalistic liberalism is just shoveling sand on the problem and hoping it goes away.

Since we knew from the first thread that nobody would care about the Mother's Day shooting in New Orleans ...

Fromthe previous footage, it was clear that it was a black guy, so at the absence of learnyoursteriotype.com (like learnyourmeme.com), here is a helpful guide:

White: psycho
Black: Gang member/drug dealer
Muslim: terrorist
Hispanic: drug dealer

And you know, some of them are cared more than the others.

Since it was a black shooter, no one thinks mass murder.  They just think black ghetto.  I'm not sure if this is good or bad racism.

That the suspect has an established criminal history may be a factor in deriving the conclusion.

Additionally, that no one was killed diminishes an assessment of "mass murder".

Ghetto blacks don't shoot themselves in the end. They aren't looking to kill a bunch of people, just prove the gang that they are bad enough to be a part of it.

Scorpio Rex: Maybe it was, once upon a time.  The weapon was purchased legally at one time, somewhere, sometime.


Not necessarily.

It could have been smuggled into the country (yes, other nations make guns too), or it could have been stolen  some time between when it was manufactured and before it was sold to a retail customer:   Approximately 38% of guns stolen every year are stolen *BEFORE* they get sold to an individual.

I think subby's point was that Boston(a "Muslim" "terrorist" killing white people) was basically the only thing in the national news for nearly a week but New Orleans where a black man shot a bunch of black people has only gotten a casual mention from the national networks.

/there are lots of reasons for it: burnout from Boston, happened on a weekend, etc. But the hard fact is that black on black violence is under reported by the national news media.

What do you want? I'm a conservative white guy and this type of shooting ain't in my city, doesn't involve my community, people, or kin. How can I do anything to stop some guy who has an illegal gun from randomly shooting people? Best we can do is clean up the problem when it gets to us.

This guy bonded out on a 15k bond after a judge reduced it from 35k. The whole city just doesn't take its crime problem seriously and just talks about it in platitudes.

And we're done here.
