Gun Violence

It was like the Wild Wild West last night up in Harlem:

“Six teens were found near Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park, where a crowd had gathered. It was not immediately clear whether they were wounded at the park or as they fled when gunfire erupted about 10:15 p.m. Monday, police said.

The victims — between the ages of 13 and 18 — were found on several blocks along Lenox Avenue, from 125th Street to 128th Street. They had been shot in the chest, thigh, torso, abdomen or foot, police said. A 15-year-old girl had been grazed on the forehead. No arrests had been made.

Police flooded the area and blocked off streets in the hours after the shooting at the park as they searched for suspects. Residents were told to go inside their homes. Two men, ages 26 and 20, were wounded in unrelated shootings about half an hour before and after violence broke out at the park, police said.”

Damn, this is pathetic. James Brown said it best: “People, people we’ve got to get over before we go under.” SMH.

    I heard about this on the news this morning-there were some other shootings in Queens too. Sometimes I feel like it’s the end o’ days.

    OMG!!! It is a mess out there. Why were 13 years old out at 10:15pm on a school night? Am i that daggone old? My mother wasn’t going for any of that. I do pray that all these people will be okay though. This is truly truly sad.

    At the time I post this, 277 comments were left on the article about the DL bros in hip hop…and only 3 (including myself) posted here. This goes to show that we as a people are sorely missing the point and that we are surely failing our children. The priorities of cyberspace and in real life are warped, twisted, and out of place. SMH…😦

    Why can’t they just not shoot anybody? Is that too much to ask? I think that I will stay in my neighborhood where we don’t shoot each other. Thanks for the invite though.

    @Christina

    Amen and hallelujah!! I could not have said it better. People want to post 1,000s of comments about how rich/sucessful a celebrity is; or who’s on the DL; or how such & such is snugged up with such & such, but they won’t dare to comment on these type of topics. They’re in denial and minds are limited. Entertainment is what feed their souls, not the humanity and the TRUTH.

    @fasjdhj…that’s why you typed that stupid @ss username so you won’t be properly identified. I don’t what newspaper or news channel you look at (if you even do), but you know d@mn well all races are guilty of killing each other at some point/time. Get over your ignorance, okay?

    This is a shame!!!

  • Southern Belle 225

    Damn! When I was a teenager, I had to be off the phone by 10pm. I sure as hell wasn’t out doors that time of night. Where in the hell are the parents? In this day in age, how can you not be terrified to let your kids out of the house, at night? I just don’t understand this. This is so sad.

  • Southern Belle 225

    I remember when fights were considered to be bad and horrible. But now that shooting is the thing to do, those fights don’t seem nearly as bad as we thought. What a shame. What’s going to be going on 2-3 generations from now?

  • glok9n

    @LUCKIE! YOU BROUGHT MY HIGH BACK!LOL

  • I'm Just Me

    @ Southern…I agree.

    Back in the day you shot the fair one. IF you lost you were the talk of the street for the rest of the day and then you went on about your life as did everyone else. Now a day they aren’t trying to see these people walk away from a situation. Shooting up kids. It is in the streets in the school. The kids aren’t safe anywhere. As I said up until I was 17 when i left home I had to be in the house by 9:00pm (and that was a lucky day really 8:30pm) and in the bed by 10:30pm. There is nothing in the street after dark but trouble. This is very sad. I am from NY BX Stand up! And I have seen things deteriorate at a rapid rate as I grew up. Yong kids are becoming more and more brazen and terrorizing the streets. I don’t know what will stop it but I am willing to fight to find out so this world can be a little safer for my children.

  • kigali

    SoutherBelle,

    You bring back memories. Forget being out at 10pm, I was trying to sneak and watch TV past 10pm.

  • KJ

    Sad to say…. Thats Harlem… I mean police could clean it up if they wanted to.. like by enforcing no loitering laws… I could walk down Lennox at 3:15 am and see groups of people hanging outside…especially in the Summer…its getting hot and bottom line is when it warms up folks get ignant!

  • kigali

    Didnt they have a spate of shootings in the Chi too? That is crazy. I knew the Chi was off the hook but I thought NYC calmed down a bit.

  • Ms Cinnamon 08

    Uhhhh that picture scared the hell out of me!!! Sad, Sad, Sad…

  • Divab

    What in the hell?! Omg.. Sad sad sad!

  • soulwoman

    I don’t understand these parents. There are kids in my neighborhood, 5,6…10 years old, that hang outside all times of the night. The other day…it was about 11:30…I was pulling into the parking lot and there were a bunch of elementary school age kids playing outside.

    And lawd…don’t get me started on the language that come of out their mouth.

    What people don’t realize is that its summer, school is out and those kids in that particular age group have absolutely nothing to do to keep themselves occupied and out of trouble.

    They most likely have no cable tv, Mama’s at work, Dad’s in jail or not at home, they are bored, so they go out and hang on the corner.

    Imagine how many young females will be getting wild, growing up too fast and becoming pregnant during the next 2 1/2 months. And imagine how many young males will be getting shot, put into juvie or entering the world of drug dealing.

    We need outlets for these kids to find something to do. Pools, safe basketball courts, sleep away camps, get them interested into going to the library, free tickets to see movies,tutoring-because you know they didn’t have all A’s, counseling, game halls,mentors, anything, that’s what we had in New Orleans in the 90’s when things were very wild there and it kept plenty of kids safe and secure.

    If they have nothing, they’re most likely to do something their little asses have no business doing.

    I remember my cousins and I used to be out late during the summer BUT our parents and grandparents, aunts, uncles and everyone else we knew were out there too. On our porches, playing cards, board games, having seafood boils, listening to music, just enjoying each other. So being out at a particular hour isnt always a bad or negative thing. Especially if you dont have to get up and go to school in the morning.

    Chances are Shameka and Jamal’s Mama didn’t even know they were out of the house.

    I hope all of the kids recover from their injuries and I pray that those shootings aren’t a precursor of whats to come for the upcoming weeks.

    Didnt they have a spate of shootings in the Chi too?

    —————

    Yes, Chicago had a bunch of shootings a few weeks back. This is exactly why I don’t kick it here. I keep my behind on the north side, among the gays. LOL!
