Why even go to clubs.

Nothing but Drugs and Guns going on up in the clubs.

Why not invite a few friends over, sit around and enjoy their company and your favorite snacks or Hors d'oeuvre.

Amazingly, no injuries were reported.

Seventeen shell casings were recovered.

The fight apparently began when a bar employee asked a man who was trying to sell marijuana to leave.

Watching this bad video, I can see the cook drew his weapon from his left side. He didn't pick up a weapon.

If you can't run a business without having to have a weapon, and if you don't feel safe walking home, or down your street without a weapon.

Then you are not Mid West... or back East...your in the WILD...WILD WEST!

No disrespect, to small cities and towns,
but folks in these towns at times feel they have something to prove.
Many are still full of senseless gang violence, over slights and turf

Here in NYC young folks have grown out of that since the 80s.

And there are always metal detectors, and or pat downs ,
in all clubs,
except for celebrities.

DOWNTOWN ORLANDO SHOOTING
Jason Rodriguez : Shooting at downtown Orlando office building leaves 5 hurt, 1 dead
Orlando Sentinel Staff

10:11 PM EST, November 6, 2009

Amanda Tighe stepped out of the elevator of the Gateway Center on Friday and into the panic that had swallowed her building.

A pack of 10 to 12 people rushed toward her, faces twisted in fear.

"Run!" they screamed. "He's got a gun! He's shooting people!"

Tighe, a legal assistant, thought maybe it was a joke -- but only for a second.

"I could tell by the look in their faces," she said.

She raced through the lobby and out the door.

At 11:45 a.m., Tighe dialed 911.

By then, the chaos that would envelop the north side of downtown was well under way. A former employee of an engineering firm, police say, was on the eighth floor of the 17-story tower and firing at people with a handgun that he pulled from a holster under his shirt.

By the time Jason Rodriguez left the building, Orlando police say, Otis Beckford, 26, was dead and five others were injured. Beckford had lived in West Palm Beach before relocating to Orlando.

The 2 1/2-hour manhunt for Jason Rodriguez shut down city streets, closed Interstate 4, and forced schools and businesses to lock down their buildings.

For much of midday, police and ambulance lights ricocheted off downtown windows, SWAT members prowled the streets with high-powered rifles and residents in north-end apartments watched the scene from their windows.

Rodriguez was ultimately apprehended at his mother's apartment on Curry Ford Road about 2:20 p.m. He surrendered without any resistance as residents of Hollowbrook Apartments looked on.

As Rodriguez was led to a police cruiser, a reporter shouted, "Why did you do it?"

The 40-year-old draftsman offered only a cryptic response.

"Because they left me to rot," he said.

Later Friday night, he shouted "Innocent!" to a crush of reporters at the Orlando Police Department as he left for the Orange County Jail.

No way to get out

The attack was downtown Orlando's first mass shooting in 25 years, and it terrified the people trapped in the building the shooter made his target. Panicked employees phoned loved ones, some barricaded doors with file cabinets, and others armed themselves with souvenir baseball bats.

At Jacobs Engineering on the 14th floor, workers were wrapping up their week -- they work half days on Fridays -- when the receptionist announced there had been a shooting. Gateway Center was locked down, they were told, and there was no way to leave.

Barbara Stiles, a 46-year-old marketing manager, said she looked out the window and saw police swarming outside, guns drawn, and a fleet of ambulances and firetrucks.

"We saw two people walk out that were put into ambulances," Stiles said, "and then I saw two other people being brought out on stretchers."

With the drama playing out beneath her, Stiles thought first of her daughter: She wanted to let her husband know she might not be able to pick her up from elementary school.

"It was actually kind of weird," she said a few hours after the incident. "It's like you're watching TV. I think it's just now starting to hit me. My stomach is absolutely in knots."

Rob Chapin was on the 16th floor when the shooting started. He looked to the ground and saw injured people -- one with a bloody shirt, one with a bloody leg -- being hustled from the building.

Chapin phoned 911, telling dispatchers where he and his co-workers were. They locked the doors, and one of his colleagues -- a collector of baseball memorabilia -- handed out 15 souvenir bats to arm themselves.

They were never needed -- a few minutes later a SWAT team showed up and led them to safety.

"You're sitting there watching this unfold, and all you want to do is cling onto your family and let them know you're OK," Chapin said. "You start to think about all the things you care about most in the world."

Chapin was lucky in that he was eight stories removed from the shootings.

Police say Rodriguez walked into the building about 11:45 a.m. and headed for the offices of Reynolds, Smith and Hills on the eighth floor.

He had worked at the engineering firm before being fired for poor performance in 2007. Since then, Rodriguez has held several other jobs.

Police have said little so far about what happened inside the offices of RS&H, but a charging affidavit provides some detail.

'Going through a tough time'......

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
