D.C. Police say a teenage boy was stabbed inside the National Zoo in Northwest.
Sources tell FOX 5's Wisdom Martin that a 14-year-old male was stabbed in the chest in the zoo after being jumped by another group of young people.
Gang day at the zoo?
In the chest, you silly slitch. Can't you read???
One has to wonder, the Zoo Police
well, i assume they have plenty of lock up facilities. i mean, isn't a zoo just a kind of jail anyway?
Was there a hip hop awards show at the zoo?
Dare I say it: a zoo where the caged animals are far more civilized than the visitors.
If it’s a “multi-cultural tradition” why is it called African American Family Day?
Did they think it was McDonald’s?
We were just talking about that on this thread:
Okay, if it's African American day, then how can it be "multicultural" at the same time?
Rumble in the jungle.
Wow, this headline and related story....it certainly invites interesting commentary.....
Was it a south african american or a north african american?
Okay, if it's African American day, then how can it also be "multicultural" at the same time?
That gives me an idea, lets turn prisons into people zoos. You can charge admission and go to the murderer house, rape house, see the pedophile exhibit etc.
“a 14-year-old male was stabbed in the chest . . . African American Family Day . . . Zoo police custody”
You just can’t make this up.
Anyway, I hope the victim will be O.K. but will stay away from the “zoo” in the future.
The Zoo has it’s own police department? And people wonder why our cities and States are broke.
Never bring a knife to a zoo fight.
Extend the perimiter fencing to the entire beltway.
“observe. An entire city’s population gone feral.”
You really can't. I mean....the headline alone is almost too much.
I saw about 50 teenagers running down the middle of Connecticut Avenue around 4:00. They were beating and kicking another teenager, whom I think was the stabbing victim. When the mob took off down the street, the victim got up and was stumbling around in the middle of the street. It was very frightening because the mob was completely out of control. They were headed straight for my car. Traffic was heavy and at a standstill. There was nothing I could do other than lock my doors. Fortunately the mob ran past me down toward Woodley Park.
I bet when their fathers get home, there will be Hell to pay
Easter Monday is traditionally African American Family Day at the National Zoo. Easter Monday has been a Washington-area multicultural tradition that spans more than 100 years.
Easter is celebrated on Sunday. So why aren’t any of these people at work.
Odds are 100 to 1 that homemade names are involved.
Given what goes on up there, they need a police force. But I have never really understood why, since they are part of the Smithsonian, that US Park Police don’t have the pleasure.
Take the animals out and leave the people in.
did you think about taking refuge in a McDonald’s? I hear they are pretty good safe havens.
When their fathers get home - in 8 to 10.
“It wasn’t clear whether any weapons were used.” A stabbing with no weapon? Were sharp words used?
“Easter Monday is traditionally African American Family Day at the National Zoo. Easter Monday has been a Washington-area multicultural tradition that spans more than 100 years.”
Well...which is it; African American Family Day or a multicultural tradition. These two concepts are mutually exclusive.
And, simply put, African American Family Day is racist.
That ain’t sayin’ much.
That ain’t sayin’ much.
Wonder how I can find out when Swedish-American family
True, but if they insist on having such an event I think a different venue might be a wise idea. I mean, African American Family Day at the National Zoo? Seriously?
It’s a jungle out there.
I have a background in zookeeping. Zoos that celebrate a day like this have a lot of trouble with the animals those days. They are particularly aggressive by noon. They get teased and tormented and won’t take it any more.
Do say more.
Because “African-American” is, by definition, multicultural.
Apparently your PC indoctrination did not take. :-)
The wrong animals were in cages.
Does anyone have a zoo calendar? I'm curious what day "White Family Day" is.
African American Family Day
Does anyone have a zoo calendar? I’m curious what day “White Family Day” is.
Six Flags has a Muslim day. Will not visit there until they do away with it. Who in their right mind would show up on Muslim day?
What’s really surprising is that Obomba and family did not make it to the day at the Zoo....his family sure seems to qualify for it....(take that however you like)
Is anybody surprised?
I haven’t had that happen, but back in the old days I used to get off the highway in the South Bronx so I could take a bridge over to Manhattan. There was one really slummy block along the way, and a stop light.
I always made sure not to pull all the way up to the light if it was red, but to leave some room so I could move forward if some of the thuggish pedestrians approached the car. Which was locked, of course, but I didn’t entirely trust that while stopped. And I figured if necessary I’d run the red light and take my chances with the police.
Good advice. I will keep that in mind for the future. It all happened so fast that I just didn’t have time to think and was completely boxed in. I will be thanking the Good Lord tonight for his saving grace.
Tom Wolfe, is that you?
