Another Leg Shooting.

What it with leg shootings?
Is this a fad to the ARC area, or do we just have a lot of
idiots downtown that can't shoot.

BTW: I know the intersection Circle K and pass it heading the back way into town to University or MCG .
(Bite me Azzizzzzz It will always be MCG to me, despite you.)

I wonder if Dr king would be proud of what goes on in these neighborhoods that surround the road named for him?

Somehow I doubt this was part of his Dream.

@GAD - true enough. There's

@GAD - true enough. There's really not a "safe" place to get shot - but I'd take my chances with a leg over the head or chest any day. Of course, I try not to place myself in dangerous situations (like walking to a convenience store at midnight) so hopefully I won't have to test my preference!

It's because the shooters are

It's because the shooters are lousy shots. It's a lot harder to shoot someone than people think, they think it's like what you see on tv and in the movies

corgi - I agree the 1st time is a hurdle.

But after the 2nd, 3rd and 4th + times it will get easier. ☺
