The media is calling this the "first ever Billiken Parade shooting," conveniently omitting the years of post-parade mayhem by declaring it "wasn't parade related" - kind of like the regular brawls, riots and aggravated batteries following the "Gay Pride" event. Newsflash! If there was no parade, there wouldn't be any reason to hang out, drink, toke and cause trouble afterwards in crowds of tens of thousands of people.
- Thousands of people turned out for the annual Bud Billiken Parade Saturday, a day to celebrate the start-up of school with dancers, marching bands, political floats and outdoor grilling.
Only this year -- for the first time that anyone could remember in the event’s 85-year history -- the shooting of two teenagers just off the parade's main route sent some families running for cover -- and left others angry that this longtime African-American tradition had been violated.
We won't go into the supposed "traditions" that have led to the deaths of thousands of members of the community. But we can see exactly how two people managed to get shot. Look at what was going on:
There were guns EVERYWHERE! And there was no firearm discipline whatsoever! Look at where all the muzzles were pointed. It's no small wonder that only two people got shot. We're surprised it wasn't dozens with all these weapons flying through the air.
