Quinceañera turns deadly
San Antonio Express News ^ | 03/26/2012 | Robert Kolarik

Posted on 03/26/2012 2:14:14 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

One person was killed and seven others were injured when a quinceañera in rural Ellis County exploded in violence, WFAA-TV in Dallas is reporting.

Police said four of the victims, including an 11-year-old, were shot, two were stabbed and two others were beaten outside a Ferris-area home early Sunday, the station says.

Officials said they believed the violence erupted when the party ran out of beer, WFAA reports.

“It doesn’t make sense in a sane world,” Ellis County sheriff’s Lt. R.D. White told the station. “That’s why we’re trying to sort it out.”

Officials said the violence apparently broke out between two different groups at the quinceañera, and family members turned against each other using guns, knives and even a brick, WFAA says. At least two shots were fired during the battle, which lasted no more than five minutes.

An adult male was killed during the fighting, the station reports. An 11-year-old was shot in the abdomen, but deputies expected him to survive.

Well no wonder. If you dare run out of beer at a kiddie party, you are asking for trouble.

Well, we haven't heard from President Urkel so, obviously, this guy didn't look like his son iffen he had a son so no big loss. Move along. Nothing to see here.

The party goers have learned that in America lawless behavior is sometimes excused-after all they broke the law by entering and remaining unmolested in our country. Therefore, the party goers may have thought the little fracas may be excused by indifferent law enforcement. The confusion on the partiers part is understandable.

For years the baby bombers have birthed their young explosives all over the Nation. They’re starting to mature, so we’re seeing the future slowly unfold before us.

It’s a coming out party for a girl turning 15.

It’s a Mexican custom.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quincea%C3%B1era

For when the girl turns 15, they throw her a sort of debutante party.

If you think the idea of serving cold cerveza at a kiddie party is kinda strange, then I submit that you have never been to a Mexican party celebrating some kid turning two years old.

They usually celebrate them in the city park, with lots of beer and barbecue. A pinata, of course. And more beer. And lots of family and friends, and a birthday cake. And beer. Lots of beer.

A-ha! Somebody probably decided the birthday girl was now legal to hit on and daddy took offense.

Yup. I live in Nor Cal, and know a number of people in the Mexican community here (and by that, I mean the underground country-within-a-country of illegals plus 1st and 2nd generation types). Here, fights are expected at virtually every event that they hold - birthday parties, wedding receptions, quinceañeras, etc, and by "fights" I mean gang fights. In fact, often they hesitate to have such celebrations, because they have to factor the risk in. Once word gets out that there is some big celebration going on, party crashers are inevitable.

Sounds similar to the Filipinos and their debutante day for Filipinas who turn 15 or 16 years of age.

Dunno - but all too often is is a ‘thinning of the herd’.

It sounds like a Mexican birthday party that ran out of alcohol. Happens all the time.

When I lived in California, every time they had one of these parties on our street, there was a shooting.

Honest to God, It was like clockwork.
