Texas Rangers RHP Tanner Scheppers was not available in Friday’s extra-inning loss to Cleveland because he was dealing with the after-effects of being attacked by “several young males,” on a street two blocks from the team hotel Thursday night.

Scheppers said he was out getting food Thursday night when he was attacked and “sucker-punched.” He did not recall the time, but did contact the police. A report was not filed after Scheppers said police told him it was unlikely that anybody would be apprehended.

Is this how the Dallas PD keeps its crime stats down?

There might be video footage, etc. around and they should at least pretend to investigate it. He's young and fit, but what are they going to say when these thugs kill some older innocent victim? There's no point in the police investigating because they might not find the thugs? Heck, that's true in any case, but you still have to investigate.

Let me guess:

His assailants were returning home from buying candy and a drink at a local convenience store and thought this creepy ass cracka was following them and were fearful and were forced to strike first for their own safety.

Do I have the Trayvon strike first rule right.

My husband is scheduled for surgery at Cleveland Clinic next month, and we live several hundred miles away. This is going to require me to stay at a hotel for about a week, and walk to the hospital. I’m thinking of cancelling and looking for a safer hospital.

Ohio is one state where my CCW permit issued in Pennsylvania is not valid. I wouldn’t feel so vulnerable if I could take my little friend along.

I think they’ve done some ethnic cleansing around the Cleveland Clinic - it’s not as bad as it used to be. But I think I’d budget for a cab.

No. Alcohol wrecks my LSD buzz. Sorry... I thought your previous post to me was meant as an insult, but I'm probably just being paranoid. Everybody thinks I'm paranoid. I can tell by the way they all look at me. They try to appear casual, but inside they're staring at me, and pointing, and calling me "paranoid".

Well one thing to keep in mind:

Just because you might be paranoid doesn’t mean that they’re not out to get you.

If Cleveland Clinic is anywhere near Euclid Avenue then I'd say yes, look elsewhere.

Plain Dealer report with more details than the Dallas Morning News and local comments (skittles mentioned). This bulls*** is happening in every city, but it certainly doesn't help that Cleveland and Cuyahoga County make up and follow their own Chicago like rules on gun possession. My CCW class was warned by the instructors to not expect State law or the Constitution to carry much weight in Cuyahoga County.

I read a little about Zimmerman. The guy did a lot of good things. he mentored kids, he volunteered to work to help stop thefts.

Funny thing if Zimmerman hadn’t been the guy charged with murder, he would be with the crowd that wants to hang him.

There’s no reason to cancel. I’ve been there twice for surgery. There’s a safe, free and convenient shuttle bus that runs almost constantly between the hospital and the on-campus hotels.

I have been at the Cleveland Clinic twice during the past three years. There are several very convenient places to stay on the Clinic campus, one o which is attached by a sky-walk with the main Clinic hospital building,
There is no need to cancel surgery.
By the way, you chose an excellent place for care.

I would say that is probably one of the wiser moves that you will make in your life if you do. In fact, it may add to your birthdays. Stay far, far away from the zoo as possible. If the police are scared to go there, you sure don’t want to.

Guess I should have said “East Cleveland”.

I had to go to a company just off of Lakeshore Blvd. and took Euclid to get there. Area looked somewhat similar to Detroit, if you know what I mean.
