second friday

You can see that the First Friday street gathering had nothing to do with last week's violence. Shootings occur all over the town at all times of the day and night. The street vendors and the bar owners did not do the shootings.

LL, this shooting is

LL, this shooting is different in my opinion. Broad Street shooter had no target, just random firing. This one had an objective to take a specific life. Don't know if they knew him or if the poor fella just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Wise people will set their own curfews.
