    Anti-violence rally turns violent: Charlotte, NC

    Four shot at N.C. anti-violence vigil

    Charlotte’s recent spate of violence took a new twist Thursday night when gunfire broke out at an anti-violence vigil in the city’s Villa Heights neighborhood.
    Four people were injured, but police say none of the victims’ injuries is considered life-threatening. No arrests have been announced.
    Mothers of Murdered Offspring sponsored the vigil, calling attention to last Thursday’s death of Javon Booker, who police say was fatally shot when he allegedly tried to rob a convenience store on Tom Hunter Road in north Charlotte. The service took place in the 2500 block of Pinckney Avenue, a block south of Matheson Avenue.

    I am sure he was just trying his life around and did not deserve to be shot while committing a felony. [/sarcasm]

    Found the original article of the shooting of Javon Booker

    This incident prompted the rally honoring another thug killed while trying to prey on others.

    Robbery suspect shot by clerk in north Charlotte

    A 21-year-old man killed by a north Charlotte convenience store employee Thursday night is the second alleged robber shot to death at the store in the past six years.
    Javon Sanchez Booker of Charlotte died after being shot about 9 p.m. at the Fast Mart store on Tom Hunter Road near Reagan Drive, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said. That is a short distance from Interstate 85.
    Booker entered the store and tried to rob the clerk, according to police. Police have not said whether the suspect struck the clerk. Investigators say the clerk pulled a gun and fired at the man.

    Sounds like the armed robbers are going to start pushing for these stores to be gun free zones.

    Hummmm. An anti violence rally, in honor of people who were killed while committing a violent crime, broke out in violence.

    How can that be.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    If I understand the logic, doesn't that mean that there must be another rally next week for the guy who did this shooting?

    Ok. This sort of stuff is outside my ability to get my head around. I can understand the BGs direct family being sad cuz he got killed, nature is nature.

    But when a BG dearly asks to be shot and gets it, suddenly we need to stop the violence???

    I dont think ive seen any rallys because some shop owner was gunned down to stop the violence only if the BG gets gunned down.

    Either im backwards or a lot of this country is.

    Is it logical to assume that the rally was *for* the robber? You can be against something without being *for* anything. Perhaps the rally was against violence in general, including the sort that the robber was willing to commit against the store clerk. I didn't see evidence of anyone saying, "Oh, yeah, that robber really shouldn't have been shot for trying to rob a store at gun point."

    The outbreak of violence might have been coincidental.

    " These people gotta stop shooting our babies just because they are committing armed robbery" Are you kidding me people? If your trying to take what someone else has by force especially using a weapon you deserve what you get. PERIOD! Have some dammed personal accountability for your actions!
