In the old day, this shiat got settled with fist fights. It's a better system.

Gang-related possibly?

Not enough information to have a clue at this point.  Maybe.  Maybe something even weirder, stupider, or both.  I'd imagine we'll find out eventually

Ugh, and a recommended solution is more guns, albeit this time carried by cops but still.

Well, the suggested racism angle aside, I'd say the same thing is at least a strong possibility.  Who drives up to a football game, blazes away and hits a specific group of individuals, and then farks off.  That's not a spree shooter's style, it's not really how "I hate this one dude I'm gonna murder him!" would go either as a rule.  Doesn't mean the people that got shot have to be gang-involved to me anyway, does mean to me that it's pretty likely from the style the shooters certainly were

High school football teams are pretty damn close to gangs in some places

The superintendent claimed that this was unacceptable gun violence, much different from the acceptable kind.

Bad night at the Roxbury.

The deadly shooting unfolded not long after Mayor Kenney issued an executive order banning firearms from recreational areas and facilities.
.


Because spraying bullets around at a recreational facility wasn't already illegal.

This kinda stuff has been happening alot up in Rochester NY and the common denominator, aside from handguns, has been shiat talking on social media... I'm not trying to make a point just sharing observations

That style of chivalry died in the 80's. It was a better system if you were the neanderthal violent type, if not it sucked for you.

A week ago in North Philly people in a car did a drive by on another vehicle, firing 47 rounds and grazing an 8 year old kid in the head in the crossfire

Philly is just getting worse and worse

I guess. But the kids that do the beating, the ones that force it upon other who want nothing to do with it usually wind up not contributing to society. Cold equation wise we're better off without them. But the kids caught in the line of fire are the ones where your argument wins.

They take football a little to seriously.

...two gunmen fired at least 30 shots from a light green Ford Explorer
time to start checking out green explorers, and even partial plate matches help

Police say the suspects fled on foot after the shooting
dafuq happened to that green explorer?  Did it vanish?

Investigators have not released a description of the shooters nor a possible motive
great move, arse-wholes!  Let's all just all continue fearing whatever we're afraid of.
 
2022-09-28 1:07:07 AM  
That homicide number is high as fark. I live in Chicago(West side) and I won't feel safe in Philly. If they were the size of Chicago they'll be at 750 while we're at 510 now.

Yeah, this.

And I know it doesn't work this way, but one would think they'd start running out of people to kill at some point.

Ganon D. Mire: Investigators have not released a description of the shooters nor a possible motive

I'd suspect that's more likely because they don't have one.  People drive up, gets out, blast up the place, this is not a time when you're carefully checking faces and outfits.  It's a time when you're frantically diving for your life and running around screaming if you panic - which most people will.  This is not a good situation to get any sort of reasonable description out of - anything you DO get is most likely wrong or exaggerated past the point of usability.  You're looking down a barrel and that guy is 10' tall

Two shooters from a car lends itself to be a standard driveby, wouldn't it? Targeted and not "random" like the more All-American style of school shooting.

Are the guns ok?

There are still good and even great reporters  who do their best to find and to provide facts to their viewers which relate a somewhat sterile  but accurate recounting of the day's events. Other reporters, possibly most other reporters seem to be misplaced used car salesmen who carefully use factual statements to lead their viewers to the brink of false and often inappropriate or even dangerous conclusions. Because livid news nviewers are still viewers but bored news viewers  become Jeopardy watchers.

Jaclyn Lee is clearly in the Used Car Salesman" category and Action News 6 clearly digs her style.

By her second sentence she had already said "showing just how quickly a football scrimmage can turn violent".

Which is possibly true I guess. But only if the shootings happened very near the start of the scrimmage instead of after it ended as would seem to be the case. But  itis completely irrelevant to any part of the story whether it is truer or false. All the statement does is mislead viewers  by implying that football scrimmages, even speedy ones, either attract or even cause school shootings to occur. A few seconds later she makes sure that we all know it is not any fault of the school at large but only the football portion of the school which causes these shootings when she states without a hint of A smile or sarcasm that "School officials expressed outrage regarding the violence at a school known throughout the community as a safe place"

Well maybe before this it was an OSHA wet dream but now?  I would suspect that the  community's overall feeling of warm security and faith in safety has somewhat diminished the school due to it being demonstrably less safe there than any place where nobody has been gunned down in the last decade or so. Probably the only way to restore that feeling is to ban all football scrimmages there now.

Nope. We're going to wait until after the midterm elections.

"Certainly unacceptable gun violence...

As opposed to acceptable gun violence.

So we're always asking ourselves how are the children and frankly, many of our children are not well,"

We need someone to think of the children.  Why have people been walking around using their phones but not thinking about the children?  Please remember, we have children.

"We keep having these same conversations day in and day out. I don't know who is missing the conversation, but we just have to keep doing as much as we possibly can,"

Good lord!  Why can't people get it through their thick heads that we just need to keep doing as much as we possibly can?  Are you doing as much as you possibly can?  If not, do more than you are doing.  Do all you possibly can!

Thought it was 'baseball and mass shootings?'

When did 'football and mass shootings,' become a thing or does it change like Daylight Savings and the seasons?

Excessive gun violence certainly didn't exist under previous DAs. I'm sure you can pinpoint specific Krasner policies that are directly responsible.

His inclination to blame everyone but the perpetrators for crimes that have been committed?

His attempts to gloss over the problem entirely?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/12/28/krasner-nutter-philadelphia-crime/

"We don't have a crisis of lawlessness," Krasner said. "We don't have a crisis of crime. We don't have a crisis of violence."

This isn't just incompetence.  It's Trump-style abdication.
