Several people were shot at an apartment complex near Auburn University when a fight broke out during a pool party, authorities and a witness said Sunday.

-snip-

Turquorius Vines, 23, said he was at the pool party Saturday evening at the University Heights apartments with one of his friends. He said he and his friend were approached by two other men who started arguing with them over a woman.

Vines said he punched one of the men, while his friend hit both of the men over the head with a bottle.

Booze and drugs heavily involved, one would imagine. Bunch of folks with kids at the school will start asking stupid questions. Watch for several arrests over the next month as the college tries to clean up potential for problems in the future.

My remedy for gun crimes:

1. Gun crime with no shots fired: 10 years at hard labor.

2. Gun crime with injury but no fatalities: 25 years hard labor.

3. Gun crime with fatalities: 20 minutes to say your prayers.

You realize though that certain elements in the current regime would like to criminalize self-defense and property-defense which involve their demented concept of "excessive force" (aka involving a firearm)?

If Zimmerman is convicted of "something" against Trayvon, then according to your proposal he would have 20 min to say his prayers. Might want to rethinnk that...

Very sad. I see feral tomcats fightin’ all the time over
female cats...kinda the same only they got guns and bottles.

Still extremely sad. When’s someone gonna’ bring up this
kinda nonsense up in the national discourse, in an
intelligent,non-agenda, or on “watch OUR news” kinda way?

There’s gotta be a better way to live out your life than
that.

” Over my dead body” !

Here in Atlanta the other day there was a funeral for a black guy who was shot by, guess who(?) another black guy.
Two friends showed up, one was the shooter of the dead guy and one of the dead guys friends. An argument ensued.
Each of them pulled out a gun and shot each other. DRT!
“Over my dead body” was apt in this case.

Example: Glock steals a SUV and causes a Hit & Run Fatality!
It could also be a hate crime if the Glock had Ivory grips!

"Very common first name these days in America, but unheard of in Africa."

I've read that the last couple of years in California that 30% of the first names given to Black infant females is shared by no-one else in the state for that year.

It's just our Euro-centric bias that causes us to think it's strange. Eh?

It is extremely rare to read about a group of white 20-somethings gathered that ends in violent death. But no one is surprised to read about shootings and deaths when a group of black 20-somethings have a party. Why are blacks so prone to violence?

Crimes committed by guns.

So many things to note in this story:

First of all, don't bring a fist and a bottle to a gun fight.

Secondly, those involved in the fight were: Turquorius, Damario, LaDarius, and Ed..... Ed?

It is so easy to pick out "Black activists" and "Black sycophants".

YOU have already assumed that Trayvon was innocent of any wrong doing and have passed judgement without having the facts (only those that agree with your views on humanity.

What do you think about also adding this:

4. Gun crime and bought the gun on the street? Help convict the seller and get your time reduced by 1/2....(If death penalty, reduce to life without parole).

Ummmm...excuse me? You might want to have a look at my article posting history/comment on this case to see where I stand on this. Aside from that, I am suggesting that the posters idea of executing anyone convicted of a crime involving a gun and a death would mean that: a carrying citizen who kills a criminal in self defense, but is convicted of some minor charge associated with the event would be executed. And for this you call me a "black activist"? LOL.
