7 Students shot leaving Summer school
Yup, a gamg memeber’s mother.
It’s not a gang. It’s a CLUB
7 punks shot no where near the school sounds like a better title...
I really thought this was a school shooting on school grounds... I was mislead.
It was a typical Detroit City gang bang.
Did you flunk math and other thought processes?
Seeing as how this is Detroit, is 7 above or below average? Are they reporting positive or negative news here?
Do the initials FO mean anything to you?
More democrat schooled future democrat voters just letting off some steam.
Bush and the NRA are the likely scapegoats for this diversity.
None of your images showed up. :(
Enjoyed them thanks, We must be reminded daily of where we are.
When schools become “open territory,” it’s time to arm the teachers responsible for the children during the day, no matter what age the kids are, or whether it’s “summer school” or Vacation Bible School, technical college, community college, or Harvard.
Our children are our legacy, and as such, they need to be protected. Period.
Oh, it was a drive by shooting?
Your IQ in hex?
Sun comes up in the east sets in the west.
7 students shot in detroit,
nothing to see here folks move along.
I SAID MOVE ALONG
Cody High School Student Diversity
Students by Ethnicity Black 98 %
i don’t diversity means what they think it does.
(taken liberally from ,”Princess Bride”)
I wonder when we can quit pretending that black violence is not disproportionate and out of control?
Detroit, the city of my birth, is a hell hole. For those of you out there, please do not think that the rest of the state in anyway remotely resembles Detroit (other than Flint and Pontiac). It doesn’t.
Not on TOR, just overseas.
Looks like a gang thang.
Gunfire wounds 7 Detroit teens; 3 critical
BY CHASTITY PRATT DAWSEY AND ZLATI MEYER FREE PRESS STAFF WRITERS June 30, 2009
Seven teenagers were wounded three critically after they were sprayed with gunfire this afternoon by two masked men at a bus stop near Cody 9th Grade Academy on the citys west side.
Police later recovered a green minivan about a mile away that they believed the gunmen used to flee.
Five of the seven victims were taking classes at Cody. Two boys, ages 14 and 16, and a girl, 17, were in critical condition at Sinai-Grace Hospital.
Four other victims were taken to Henry Ford Hospital. A 17-year-old boy was in serious condition, a 17-year-old girl was in temporary serious condition, and a 15-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl were in stable condition, Detroit police said.
It was the second shooting in as many weeks near a Detroit Public school offering free summer school classes.
Bria Wilson, 15, said she never saw a green minivan, or even the gunmen who fired the shots. But the sound of gunshots meant it was time to run.
Wilson got away, but she said her 16-year-old friend, a boy, was hit multiple times one of the seven teenagers who were shot, reportedly by two gunmen who had their faces cloaked.
I was standing at the bus stop next to him, Wilson said. That bullet came too close. Im not coming back to this school.
Todays shooting was the second in two weeks at a Detroit Public Schools high school building offering free summer classes to make-up for failed courses. Free summer classes have drawn thousands of high school students, placing teens from different schools and neighborhoods in the same buildings.
On June 18, a 16-year-old girl was shot in the chest after summer school dismissal at Denby High when two groups of teens clashed about a block from the east side school.
The shooting occurred about 15 minutes after summer schools 2 p.m. dismissal when a group was at the bus stop on the Southfield Freeway service drive at Warren near a gas station. A green minivan pulled up and two masked shooters opened fire, according to Detroit Police Department spokesman Rod Liggons.

The shooting may have stemmed from a fight in the school Monday, according to witnesses.
Two women who jumped out of a car to help the injured teens described the shooting scene as heart wrenching. One boy appeared to be bleeding from his neck, left side, chest and hand, they said.
We seen the babies laying on the ground bleeding! said one of the women, who declined to be identified. We stopped because the kids tried to move him. I told them, No, please dont move him!
He was talking. We were just trying to keep him calm, the other woman said. Im a parent. I wouldnt have felt right if we didnt stop to help them.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Detroit Police at 313-596-2260.

Warren Avenue over the Southfield Freeway (M-39) is closed due to the shooting. In addition, the M-39 off-ramp (Exit 8) to Southfield is closed.
temporary serious condition?
Never heard that before.
Any idea why this is at the top of our news down here in the South? What warrants this to be a national story?????
Seems like just another day in Motown. I had to drive I94 through there last month. Oy....a skeleton of it’s former self.
Now that’s diversity! :-)
Par for the course in Detroit. Ususally its one or 2 murders a day.
This will probably become more prevalent as the Detroitification of America continues.
Its national news for the same reason a Dallas car chase is national news.
That's right girlfriend. Spread the infestation.
Maybe the shooter is another illiterate high school graduate so was unable to read the “Gun Free Zone” sign?
I wonder what the drop out rate is.
I really don’t care all that much. The bottom line is that most of them are headed to prison or the welfare rolls anyway. Cities like Detroit are nothing but a huge financial and cultural drain on this country. The crime rates are beyond bizarre. Such cities are full of hate and danger and, frankly, we’d be better off if the entire city and several others like it simply vaporized.
How well I remember.
And the stupid, brainwashed American public sat there nodding their air heads in agreement.
They are sickening.
Charles Moose quit his job, wrote a book about snipers, and became the military liaison to NOPD during Katrina. Given what I recall about the police response during and after Katrina, it would appear that he did as lousy and as racist a job there as he did in the DC sniper case. He recently graduated from the Honolulu police academy and is a new police officer with Honolulu PD.
The most important thing for them to learn is that guns are bad. I think the shootings today were just part of the curriculum.
A 17 year-old is a ninth grader?
Gotta admire perseverance.
OK, they were probably "acting white", and a poor soul overcome with grief over MJ just overreacted.
Perfectly understandable. Nothing to see here.
Yep. The liberal solution to every shooting by scofflaw liberals who target other liberals in liberal enclaves is to disarm law-abiding conservatives everywhere else.
FIRST, your question was viable, regardless to the actual math.
SECOND, when I first read your post, I THOUGHT the same thing.
REASON: I didn’t notice the < marks either.
It happens. The mind sees what It expects, or is used to.
Isn't that exactly what obama and administration keep telling us the 'economy' is? A temporary serious condition.
