According to a statement released Monday by the sheriff’s office, the shooting happened in the main parking lot. Both victims suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening. Neither was identified. One was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center by ambulance, the other by personal vehicle.

The suspects were described as two black men, one of a slender build and the other heavy-set.

Tripe

"The reality for some, but defintely not factual. The most expensive national chain hotel in the CSRA is located on the Riverwalk. The property is even more expensive compared to the Sheraton in West Augusta. The Sheraton is the only Sheraton hotel in the state outside metro Atlanta"

This is what someone posted regarding the shooting of 2 young ladies at the JBA last evening... This tells where their priorities are, it's all about the image. No matter that these young people were shot.

The same "poster" also dismissed the brutal beat-down of a young couple at the Riverwalk with the following comment... "The incident on the Riverwalk happen in May 2013 and it's the year 2014."

Worthless....

Here is what I would want to

Here is what I would want to know from countyman if I am to put credibility into his bravados for downtown: approximately where he lives, does he rent or own, does he have children and is he satisfied with where they will be zoned for school, how and where he gets his oh so positive information.

Those are just a start. I also would love to know exactly who he works for and is he a self- appointed proponent of living and coming downtown.

Granted, none of my business except when it goes to credibility.
