Another weekend has finally arrived...not that we're really ready for it.
Just try not to pay attention to the overnight gunfire you might hear (more on that in a bit).
Our Hoosierland weather for today brings us sunny skies once again, with temps climbing all the way up to around 87 degrees!
TOO damn hot for me)
The rest of the weekend will mirror today, so be warned (saggy satin shorts and naked chests on the black males around here...not something to ever write home about). Another reason why I prefer colder seasons.
|Got mine...right here.|
*** First out of the shooting range is our "What the hell happens today, Bob?" feature:
MAY 25 -
---It's National Brown Bag Day
YESTERDAY'S post about free lunches)
---It's National Don't Fry Day
---It's National Heat Awareness Day
DEFINITELY aware of it)
---It's National Missing Children's Day
---It's National Tap Dance Day
---It's National Wine Day
---It's Towel Day
THIS was good)
*** Next, since the end of the week has arrived, let's look at what else we can observe over the following 48 hours...
MAY 26 -
---Saturday is National Blueberry Cheesecake Day
MAY 27 -
---Sunday is National Cellophane Tape Day
---It's National Grape Popsicle Day
And there we go...not as much as usual, but still plenty of things to take part in.
Just be sure to always observe responsibly...
*** Next up, it would appear that we have ANOTHER weekend in Fort Wayne starting off with a BANG...!
This took place in the 4800 block of Gaywood Drive (as usual, down on the city';s SOUTHEAST SIDE).
((Police were called at 2:23 a.m. for several reports of gunshots in the 4800 block of Gaywood Drive There were 3 victims, one was in critical condition and two were in serious condition. Police have been unable to obtain suspect information.
An Uzi gun was also located next to the victim found on Gaywood.
Several homes were also struck by bullets. One home near Gaywood and Pettit had a bullet hole in the front window. It's unclear how many homes were damaged by bullets.))
Yeah, the weather gets nice, and the "locals" start their monkey shines...SO predictable, and SO preventable.
((Update: one of the victims HAS died...that's homicide number 18 for the year, I thought it might be 19, but...))
Dominik Alaijuon (Phonics R Us) Files, 28, is the latest victim.
He's been in the court system for the last TEN years - suspended license, several counts carrying handgun w/o a license. Typical.
The justice system isn't doing much to halt such behavior, so it falls to "the streets" to clean things up. Well, that's ONE LESS annoyance in the area.
What you need are POLICE cars patrolling the neighborhoods a LOT more than the department is doing NOW. The whole southern part of the SE quadrant could use an influx of MORE police, and by the looks of things already this year...CONSTANTLY.
An "Uzi-type" weapon...I heard an "AR": type, and an "assault-style rifle".
WHERE THE HELL is all this QUALITY-OF-LIFE bullshit in OUR part of town, Mr Mayor???
*** Next up, more proof that the aborigines down here have absolutely NO sense of boundaries (or driving skills)
This took place at the Chapel Oaks Apts located at 800 Buchanan around 0030 hrs this morning.
((According to police, the woman was driving on Buchanan Street when she made a left turn into a grassy area between two buildings. The SUV continued for approximately 100 feet, barely missing a tree and a pole, before going up an incline. Police said it appeared the vehicle then went airborne and crashed into the building - causing significant damage to apartment 877.
Five people were inside the apartment at the time of the crash. Police said they were all upstairs and jumped out of a window onto the roof of the SUV to escape. Police said the residents initially feared the vehicle was on fire and the SUV's engine kept revving))
That type of vehicle is typical of the ones I see a lot of blacks driving around. For some reason, they like the older Buick Rendezvous crossovers...must all be discounted for quick sales?
---Also, a "happy ending" and two MORE (black) gang members off our streets for the time being:
|Good riddance to bad rubbish.|
Yep, two less assholes to have to deal with down here...only several HUNDRED more to go.
(and the wheels on the bus go round and round, don't they?)
*** Next, time to stop by our "Kitten Corner"...
DO have to watch it...a lot).
Violet spent some time on the sofa with me during the early afternoon, and Gallifrey climbed into the chair with me while watching television later in the evening. At least I know where they are all the time...
*** Next up, let's check in with "Midnight and Company"....
|Nice and shady up here...|
|I get my shade where I can...|
At least they are there in the morning...that makes me feel better that they made it through another night.
*** Last back to the ammo store...we have this conglomerate of human flotsam infesting the whole south side of Fort Wayne, and it's been incrementally fostered and increased by those downtown...over the last few decades.
|Nothing changes, except for the worse.|
Crime continues to climb down here...don't let ANYONE tell you different.
The frequency of shootings has risen markedly. Granted fewer people have died (so far), but that only means that the dipshits doing all the shooting have trouble hitting the broad side of a barn (and also have difficulty pouring piss from a boot with instructions written on the damn heel). If these mooks were more proficient, the homicide rate would be MUCH higher, so in that, we're fortunate (I guess).
DOWN side is that these same assholes are hitting OTHER stuff...like vehicles and houses (where regular people tend to sleep overnight). The whole COLLATERAL DAMAGE aspect to gunplay doesn't even enter into their primate skulls for an instant.
There needs to be a VERY serious "rethink" when it comes to how law-enforcement is handling the south side, because the crime we have had down here for decades IS spreading both north and east (said that for years here).
And with the advent of "fireworks season", you know some will dismiss gunfire as such, when in fact, they should be very concerned.
There ARE solutions to our specific problems on the south side, but it requires those with the proper authority to actively pursue a better (and perhaps different) methodology to fix this broken window aspect to the entire quadrant.
Do have yourselves a good Memorial Day weekend.
We'll catch 'ya back here ON Memorial Day
Be well, make a difference to someone today, and as always...
Stay SAFE out there, America.
