Two people were shot Christmas morning while delivering presents to a child.

Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Robbie Silas said a man and a woman were visiting his child about 9:45 a.m. on Irving Street off Wrightsboro Road. An altercation ensued, and both were shot.

The victims were taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where the woman was treated and released and the man was in critical but stable condition Sunday night. At least one person was in custody.

Unpublished

track, unless you were delivering presents to the this house and had a domestic dispute with this cretin, yes you would be safe. Certain people may not be, but by choice or necessity they have to travel the same territory as those willing to do harm. I am not worried one whit about being shot, mugged, or carjacked because I don't go where the muggers and carjackers prowl.

I don't know, bad things can

I don't know, bad things can happen anywhere. I just try to stay step ahead by being vigilant, not paranoid to get out but careful. More so in some areas though. Well here's hoping we make it to a Happy New Year.

Itsanotherday you said you

Itsanotherday you said you don't go anywhere that muggers or carjackers prowl,hmm, those people are everywhere,the malls,the grocerey stores, they could be lurking and waiting for you to exit your own home and ponce on ye' old bones. Don't ever fall into a false sense of security because you think you don't go to places that they may be. If you can tell us where they are we won't go there either.

Of course, bad things can

Of course, bad things can happen anywhere and we must be vigilant. The point is, look at where the majority of the problems are happening. It's the same premise as hanging out with the wrong crowd. And if you live in a high crime area, sitting on your front porch after dark, is just plain foolish.

Government subsidized living attracts criminal elements. This is the reason, CC residents do not want Magnolia Trace's new development. What local politician(s) may be behind Magnolia Trace developers?

Willow, considering Magnolia

Willow, considering Magnolia Trace and Scott Dean, NOW is the time for opposition to galvanize against Ben Harbin, Ron Cross and Mike Sleeper. If Sleeper ever comes out and explains his role getting campaign contributions from Dean, his relationship and what he knew about Dean and the county employee, I may give him a pass, but not until he does. I have no doubt the voters are ready to clean house with these three, Dean, Magnolia Trace insiders.

They won't if they don't

They won't if they don't know, River. CC county residents need to pay close attention to those commission meetings and pay attention to what is taking place in Richmond County. It's creeping over this way. This thing with Magnolia Trace is just the beginning. We need to find ways as a community to stir this pot.

beboisme, you are correct

beboisme, you are correct that criminals can hit you when least expected; but if you look at the history and statistics, the majority of crimes happen on the home turf of the criminal. I stay away from their turf, minimizing my chances.

Copperhead. I think you may want to change your thoughts. To start with Federal courts rarely let you out for no reason. But beyond that I beleiev you should look at where laws are generated and that would be the legislature. The legislature generates laws that judges must follow in a state court. Now who holds the reins of power in the legislature and the executive branchs of Georgia government?

You guys are mainly correct.
Unpublished

You guys are mainly correct. Except for the fact that once safe places to go are no longer safe as the government keeps moving them around. We can avoid all the bad areas we wish, but for how long do we have to keep running because the government keeps moving their home turf into our back yards instead of leaving them in their own squaller they created?

The poor child. "And what's your fondest Christmas memory?"
"The day mom and dad shot each other."
Parents should know the damage they do to the young ones.
