One of the biggest problems with having public events with large numbers of colored folk is that they use them as an opportunity to kill one another.
However, it must be remembered that the reason they do this is because of slavery hundreds of years ago.
One person was killed and nine others injured following a shooting early Sunday in New Orleans’ famed French Quarter, officials said.
Police Superintendent Michael Harrison said during a news conference that officers responded about 1:30 a.m. Sunday to the shooting at the intersection of Iberville and Bourbon streets.
Harrison told reporters the shooting victims whose ages ranged from 20 to 37 included two females and eight males. One male victim died at a hospital.
The popular area was crowded because of the Thanksgiving holiday and Bayou Classic football game in the Superdome between Southern and Grambling universities, Fox 8 reported. Harrison said more than 30 officers were in the area because of the game.
“This was not the place or time to bring firearms to the Bayou Classic or any event,” he said. “This is not the place where something like this should happen.”
Police made two arrests, both of which were men were carrying firearms.
