I'm loosing track.....there have been some many shootings this year. Someone told me that there isn't any more shootings that there was last year, it just seems that way. He said that Omaha is a growing community, so with more people in town = more violence. Whatever....that was my thought. It's terrible.

I was watching Channel 7 they interveiwed a cousin of the victim. She was explaining a little about the scene, and said that this is a darn shame and it needs to stop. In the same breath right in the camera she said.."Let me tell you something.....It a Hood thing...... he was into something .....(pause).....I don't know what, but it's his business and it's just a hood thing."

So don't worry Omaha it's just a hood thing people just get shot to death mowed down in the middle afternoon just minding their own business, I know I feel safer.

^^ It's not a "hood thing." It's a gang & drug thing.

^^ It's always the same thing. "It was a case of mistaken identity." "He was a good boy." "He was getting his life together." "He had never been in any trouble."

It's all crap.
