Yes !~

That whole area of Capital Blvd. from Perry Creek down to Mini City/NewHope Church Road/Brentwood is BAD, BAD NEWS (sorry SaturnFan).... I just hope nobody got hurt ! I'm upset but I was not at all surprised, given the somewhat intimidating crowd that hangs out at TTC on weekends (especially Saturday nights). Come to think about it - it appeared thuggish last week during the day -

I edited that out ! It was in response to Mike's comment about the vibe... commenting on another comment how my family and I don't like the vibe in Cary !
I'm not exactly sure what happened - I read the article on WRAL and watched the video. I think more details are forthcoming. I hope we get the real story... it sounds really scary... this stuff doesn't happen in Raleigh !!!!

I live on Perry Ck. Nothing scary to see here. From what I heard, it used to be worse, but we've been here for several years and it's just quiet. Diverse neighborhoods, but quiet nonetheless.

The thing at the mall sounds scary, though. And it's the one my high school kid hangs out at, too. I've never been afraid to drop him off there and let him hang out for a couple hours, but geez, what the heck?

And no, before someone asks.... he was home with me and his gal-pal all evening ;-)

Good heavens. Let's not go nuts here, shall we?

My bet is this stems from IM conversations, planned gatherings, lots of online gossip and then the long, hot hours of a summer weekend. God willing, it isn't gang related. It was a bunch of teenagers. And the first "eye witness" on the scene reported 200 people involved. Police boiled it down to half that, though that's still quite a riot.

I'll be waiting for the morning news before I go over there tomorrow, but geez. Be on guard?

Yes, hopefully tomorrow we'll get the real story - not a sanitized version...
