What Matters Again??
Something matters....we just can't seem to remember what it was:
- The photographs went online earlier this month after a 27-year-old man was gunned down in South Los Angeles. One showed a man flashing a chrome handgun from his jacket pocket. In another, a young man held a pistol in each hand.
“Better wake up,” one person wrote on Instagram. “It's a war goin' on.”
“This area ain't safe right now,” someone else posted with a map showing a portion of South L.A.
The warnings of increased gang violence intensified across social media platforms this weekend after more than half a dozen shootings in South L.A. left one man dead and 12 people wounded.
The postings created an echo chamber in which it was difficult to determine what was a real threat and what was rumor. One of the most incendiary claims was that a gang had vowed 100 days of violence after the 27-year-old man was killed on July 17, sparking alarming hashtags such as #100days100nights and #PrayforLA on Twitter and other sites.
The Chief is downplaying the significance of the threats - what else is he going to do? But he met with his gang officers and extra patrols are in the affected areas. Based on how the cockroaches like Chief Queef and his crew get on social media and the number of murders that follow, you can't discount this stupidity.
