    Seventy arrested, one killed in disturbance in Charlotte NC

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. Authorities say a fatal shooting along with fights and people blocking traffic led Charlotte police to call out its civil emergency unit.

    Police said more than 70 people were arrested early Sunday morning in the disturbances in the city's Uptown.

    Investigators said the trouble started around 1 a.m. when someone fired a gun as two large groups argued. One person was shot in the head and killed. A second was shot in the leg but is expected to recover.

    If I were to see a situation such as this developing I would attempt to depart the area as fast as possible.

    "Police said officers noticed many of the people involved in the disturbance were flashing gang signs."

    Imagine that...gang activity. I used to frequent Charlotte when I lived in NC. There's a lot to be said for now living in the rural mountains...not that we don't have our issues, but still. I can't hardly stand to even drive through larger towns and cities anymore.

    Fighting about politics no doubt. Names sound Irish.

    Grandma was right. Nothing good happens after midnight.

    I suport their right to kill each other off, if the danger to innocents is negated.
    The city should rent a stadium and let them go at it.

    I second that motion. Can we give them the guns that people keep reporting go bang all by themselves? After they just jump out of holsters and hands and such and start killing people, we can then pick up the guns and destroy them.

    My son is a police officer in Charlotte, I have rode patrol with him a couple of times, gangs are a problem in that town, it was a real eye opener.

    My thoughts exactly. If these idiots want to kill, let's find someplace remote and let them go at it. Then there will be no innocent victims. Anyone found to be in a gang should be tossed in the pit. I'll bet these weak punks would think twice about flashing gang signs then.

    A man, without force, is without the essential dignity of humanity. Human nature is so constituted, that it cannot honor a helpless man, although it can pity him; and even this it cannot do long, if the signs of power do not arise.

    Would that be considered a gang bang?

    No...a gang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang...

    Seems like Charlotte is in need of an AC130 for their gang suppression unit.

    I'm sure they were all just misunderstood and in the act of turning their lives around and were striving to be pillars of the community.

    I'm all for renting a stadium surrounded by bullet resistant glass,give everyone a gun,sell tickets to spect6aters,you ticket gets you a seat a pop a hotdog and a bullet proof vest with ceramic plates,The New American Gladiators,it would be a great way to whittle down the gang problem

    they like shooting so much, don't try them for a jail sentence--sentence them to 3 years of real fighting...for the country they disrespect;
    the NEW Army needs more people who have lots of fight in them.

    --NO disrespect intended--

    just thinking that seemingly America has city's full of youth that have history's of violence--
    possibly redirect them and society will get some use from them and perhaps some
    of them (who survive) will come back changed by the experience.

    5 years in jail or 3 in the army was a judges option till the '60's IIRC

    I'm retired military. The "fight" these guys have in them is utterly undisciplined. I wouldn't want any of them in my unit.

    The US military requires its members to be disciplined, intelligent, and dedicated. The capacity to fight comes later. These posturing boobs would cry and want to go home within a week.
