Can’t be possible. Schools are gun free zones. Someone must be incorrect on their story ...

Well it did say they were leaving school. If they never left the school, they would never, ever get shot.

Maybe shooter was a graduate and, you know, can't read.

This has to be a mistake. Everyone knows that all mass shooters are angry white men and probably right-wingers and veterans.

Seems like it was somebody outside the school, shooting people who were leaving? Like a drive-by?

Could be but so far in the first 15 mins the number of shot has gone from 3 to 4 to 6 to 7 before we know it we will hear of 10 shot.

Somebody was pissed that is for sure.

No way this was gang related, now that Obama’s our president. No, this had to be a result of the higher carbon dioxide levels in the air, no doubt, from all the gas guzzling SUVs they used to make up there. Good thing Obama’s taken over them car companies, the carbon dioxide should come down and with it, the crime. God Bless Obama. (major sarcasm alert)

Who is in control of the Detroit area. The Democrats! This also happened on numerous occasions during the Clinton Administration. Schools are supposed to be gun free zones. God I hate the democrats for destroying this country with political correctness so they could feel better. Worthless they are!!!

And those figures were no doubt compiled by someone that graduated from Detoilet public schools!

Yep, all those bad people are white, heterosexual, Christian, males.

Yeah, chief moose (a black racist police chief) knew that the DC snipers were white guys.

He even had police going around and confiscating rifles from white MD citizens because the police had records stating who owned what.

He had to ignore a lot of other evidence to conclude that the snipers were white.

I'm sorry but what is wrong with those figures?

Less than 1% for four categories could easily equal 2%.

Maybe he thought it meant “Guns Free,” you know, just for today. Bring your gun to school for free. Or maybe he thought they were having a gun giveaway and got mad when he found out the troof.

Five teens shot on Detroit’s west side
Oralandar Brand-Williams and George Hunter / The Detroit News
Detroit — Four Detroit Public Schools students and a former student were shot Tuesday afternoon after leaving Cody High School, said Detroit Public Schools spokesman Steve Wasko.

The shooting happened just before 3 p.m. near a bus stop and gas station at the Southfield Freeway service drive and West Warren Avenue. Two men were seen in ski masks approaching the teens — three boys and two girls, ages 14-16 — and said, “You know who we’re looking for” before firing roughly 15 rounds. The two men then drove off in a getaway car, Detroit police said.

The conditions of the teens were not immediately available. The area of the shooting is known for high gang activity.

“New Falusia ....”

To put it in perspective, there were 309 homicides in Detroit in 2008. This is just slightly lower than the total number of American deaths in Iraq in 2008.

The highest US murder rate is still claimed by New Orleans.

“Maybe shooter was a graduate and, you know, can’t read.”

Since when is learning to read important? Where have I been? I thought that it was more important that he learns to feel good about himself and develops a positive self image? These are qualities one needs in the State Pen...or Obama’s ACORN Thug Corps.
