Explain to me why the couple at the Riverwatch was an attack and the attack of my God son and his fiance a brawl. Whether you are attacked by two or 10 it's still an attack. It became a brawl when they had to fight for their lives and others jumped in.
The police siad they didn't know anything about it until it hit you tube, then they said by the time they got there it was over, then no report was filed but they told the victims they couldn't do anything because there were no witnesses. A report should have been filed witness or no witness.
last, the store owner should call the police even if it's not inside their establishment. If a curfew is put in place their business wil suffer severely. The only place I go to downtown after dark is the hospital or church.
"It became a brawl when they had to fight for their lives and others jumped in." Apparently, you agree it was a brawl. I don't know how the fight originated, but it was a brawl by anybody's definition.
And Augusta already has a curfew. It applies to youth 18 and under. It looked to me like the people in this fight were older than that, so I'm not sure it would have helped any. Since you know some of the people involved, maybe you know different.
didn't look like an attack to me.... looked like mutually assured destruction.
Anyone who wanted out could have run for the "exits" as they did when they thought they heard gunshots.
and so sad - I've lived in the CSRA since 1967 and things used to be so much more civilized back then - Augusta was a nice small town and one could go shopping in all the big stores on Broad Street. Then the malls were built (and one now destroyed) What happened? Seems like the whole world, not only the CSRA is falling apart. God help us!
The young Riverwalk victim - may he fully recover - the best to him especially! And his friend - I hope she will be one of the advocates that will insist on more safety! Matter of fact - ALL that care!!!
