look I know there are important people that live around there, these Christmas shootings are all over, what is special about this one?
I moved out of C-ville 30 years ago and no longer know the roads. Maybe you could give a little more info for those of us who don’t know what you are thinking about . . .
I am saying big deal
some family feud or something
I haven’t been to Charlottesville in about 20 years when I used to go to the JAG School at UVA but why is it freep worthy that some fool fired a gun near C’ville?
Rio Mills isn’t really in “town”. I think C’ville is mentioned since it is the town closest by. Other sources I’ve read said the police forced a car off the road there. Perhaps the suspect(s) fled and that’s where the shots came from.. Time will tell.
That would be a hoot watching Shifflet cops shoot at nauughty Shifflet cousins.
I’ve been to Charlottesville and it is a nice town. Alas, it is also a bastion of liberalism. To me the article demonstrates that even nice towns and nice neighborhoods have crime. We hear a lot about hellholes like Chicago, but it doesn’t matter where you go, there is always going to be some criminal element around. If the libs continue their ways, the town will end up looking like Detroit.
...or Morris cops shooting at naughty Morris cousins, or Shiflett cousins shooting at Morris cops, or...well, you get the picture.
The Shifletts and the Morrises-Virginia’s answer to the Hatfields and McCoys.
Seems to be a domestic dispute.
