I was wondering who shot at them. I heard it somewhere the day it happened, but didn't see it in the news until just now.

All of Celeste Avenue is NOT

All of Celeste Avenue is NOT ghetto. There are still some decent people who live there. Don't judge an area because what some do. If you feel Celeste Avenue is so ghetto, you need to not travel it and if you do, pray that your car doesn't break down because those same ghetto people might have to help you. How would you like it if some torched your neighbor, then you would feel differently. You need prayer.

Trust me, I avoid it all

Trust me, I avoid it all costs......And I wouldn't be so worried about the people offering to help me out there....I am more afraid of my car getting jacked. If you live there, I'll say a prayer for YOU.

Many are committing violent

Many are committing violent crimes within our area during these trying times. It is nice to see no matter which county (Richmond, Columbia or Aiken) most are arrested within a few days of these violent incidnets or they are shot durring the commission of their crimes by law enforcement officers or citizens. Great job to citizens who step forward to help our and keep these violent thugs under control and to all of the member of the local Sheriff's Offices, FBI, GBI, Police Departments, etc. who are working very hard to keep the general public safe and secure. We need the judicial system to step up and give all violent criminals the maximum punishments possible without any plea bargins or charges dropped. If you need more room in the jails, let our the non-violent offenders (although I prefer building more jails as needed) but keep ALL VIOLENT CRIMINALS in jail where they belong for as long as possible.
