7 Shot in New Orleans Watching Mardi Gras Parade - February 25th 2009, 01:11 AM

Article

Quote:
(Newser) Seven people, one of them a toddler, were shot in New Orleans today as they watched a Mardi Gras parade, police say. Two men are listed in serious condition, reports the Times-Picayune, and all of the victims appeared to be innocent bystanders. Police chased down and arrested two suspects, ages 18 and 20, the Times-Picayune notes. It's not clear what set off the shooting.
"I'm off to Afghanistan this summer. Damn, this is more dangerous than Afghanistan," said an Air Force reservist who stopped to help one of the victims.
I wonder why they were shot. It's definitely a scary thing.

Why would people do such a thing? And a toddler?! How awful.

I've been in New Orleans, and I've seen its problems. That city is dying. Although this is unfortunate, it doesn't surprise me at all. New Orleans is just plain dangerous.

wow. that's horrible. i can't believe somebody would even think about doing that. but people need to get their reality back (mainly this guy). Yes New Orleans would never bw the same but killing people won't do any good.

What a terrible ending to what is meant to be a fun day. :[

That sounds alot like the gang violence we have here.
It's so mindless.
