    BAD: Shooting after basketball game

    This type of thing happens quite frequently in and around Detroit. A LOT of it goes unreported by the local news outlets. Dearborn happens to be a city with one of the highest concentration of Middle Eastern/Arab (speaking) people in the country. Although, ghetto-type behavior is the same no matter where it happens. The details and accounts differ slightly, but one thing is for sure, one (young) man is dead because of the stupidity and lack of humanity of another.

    was it not in Detriot about 3 years ago that a winning point-ball was actually shot in mid-air, as in-- it was in flight and almost to the rim.

    rather ended the game.

    anyone---what caliber for bastketball?

    Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
    to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them

    Hey JD, I was thinkin' about you as I was driving a 32ft RV through IA last week towards the end of a 10 day road trip. Nice place, reminds me of (northern) parts of MI.

    What can I say, I find the swaying bean fields & corn much more soothing than Gratiot or The Lodge.

    This is why most (a lot?) of States are stupid when they ban CCW from public gatherings/sporting events. If you carry you "should" know enough not to get hammered at the ball game. However, there are lots of other hammered idiots that could end up attacking you, or just general criminals preying on people leaving. Either provide FREE gun check service or allow the law abiding to carry.

    Since you are familiar with Gratiot and the Lodge (freeway), I can understand why you ended up choosing Iowa.

    Cherish your memories because even though the outside may look familiar, the "inside" is totally unrecognizable, unfortunately.
