I just don't get some people. Right in the middle of fucking downtown Omaha during the CWS who the hell shoots a guy SIX times, I heard once in the head and five more in the chest, right infront of huge crowds and just as bars got out so there's a ton of people roaming around AND during the CWS.

I was less then a block away from it heard all the shots and I just don't understand what would drive someone to do this. I can't imagine after that people will want to bring their families downtown, im sure its pushing away alot of people from the CWS. Not to mention during the taste of omaha not to long ago there was a shooting downtown aswell.

Omaha isn't even a big city and it's relatively safe in comparison that's why people live here because it's safe. The midwest sucks balls. Are we not even safe roaming around anymore really, there is like a cop every single block downtown probably even more so with all the extra people. I am amazed nobody fired back but just firing amongst so many people it's a miracle nobody else got shot aswell.

Personally I think it's time I go get a permit and start to carry like most of the people I ride with because evidently you're never safe. But what gets me the most is now a dad is without is fucking son at the very start of fathers day. I don't have kids or anything but that has torn me apart all frickin day.

Just had to let off some steam on that one I just can't grasp wtf is happening to society. People are out protecting our country and we're shooting ourselves.

Events like these give me reason to support the death penalty. And yes the world is fucked up and seems to get worse every day. Scary that we have a president who wants to sneak the second amendment away from us.

Yea there will always be guns no matter what but we need to protect ourselves. Why would someone want to take that away from us.

A bunch of the guys I ride with were just coming back from being near that area too which is even scarier.

The funny thing about guns here is Nebraska you can open carry without a permit, but Omaha has an ordinance saying you need a permit. I've been told by cops from other cities that technically if they were to give a person a ticket or whatever for open carrying in Omaha you can fight it and will win because city cant override state. But they will give you so much trouble it isn't even worth it.

I have to find time around my shitty work schedule to get into a class to carry but I plan on doing it very soon after this and before that some people threatening to pull a gun on us aswell when we were just sitting talking and had been for a while.

Yep, crazy world man. Only in this country and 3rd world countries are there as many shootings annually. That makes you think just how civilized we are. Or are not.
What is CWS anyways there?

College world series! Been hosted in Omaha for a while and they just built a stadium downtown for the cws. Just crazy that shit happens in a huge crowd. I mean in secluded places drive by a house shit like that sure whatever but in middle of down town with hundreds of people, miracle nobody else got hit because it easily coulda happened.

Same type of thing happened in OKC a few weeks ago. All year they always the Thunder Basketball games on the jumbo on the side of the stadium, and thousands of people come to "Thunder alley" to watch the games, and during the 2nd round of the playoffs, when we were playing LA at home, some 16 year old kid shot and killed someone right after the game..... Now guess what??? They don't show the games outside anymore, because some PRICK 16 year old wanna be gangster had to prove he was all bad and ruined it for the whole city! Makes me mad!

I'm all for fair fighting and all that good stuff. I hate seeing people wrestle in fights I think a fight should be standup kick boxing rather then a grapple match. Let alone bring weapons into it. But any more these days you gotta be safe. Recently a lot of people have been trying to wreck us aswell while riding.

I wonder if they will keep the CWS here. I mean yea it's one incident but it's still a major deal. The guy that got killed was a 19 y.o omaha kid and they didn't have anything on the shooter. But it just makes it a place you wouldn't wanna bring your family. I don't have kids or anything but even at 21 I feel im to old to risk stupid shit like that. No point in risking your life over a stupid ass fight.

Personally I stay far away from large crowds like that for many reasons. Mob mentality is one reason. I know parents want take kids to sporting events and all but with all the drunks and a-holes gotta ask yourself is it REALLY a place you wanna take your kids too. Jam thousands of drunks and morons into one small area and bad things are bound to happen.
Can't eliminate dumb and some idiots are just dumb. A shame people have to think twice if its an event their kids will be safe at.

I think it's Texas that has the rule. If you murder someone and if there are 4 or more witnesses that it's automatic death penalty. I grew up in Rockford IL which has been consistently in the top rated worst cities in the US for violent crimes per capita. I got out of there back in 04 and I hear more and more horror stories every week from friends on Facebook. Things like two cars were driving down 11th street shooting at each other some 14-15 shell casing we're found and there was only one call to the police about it and it happened at like 230 in the afternoon. Violent crimes are not going to decrease unsless the public is willing to speak out about it and notify the police and stop trying to ignore what's going on around them. My dad was a cop in that area for 30 years and I have heard some horror stories of just how low people can be. He served court papers for the last 6-7 years there and had people sick their dog on him. There was times that Mom was scared to answer the phone in fear that something had happened.

Was it a full moon last night? The local bar I frequent was crazy too. Nothing happened but that was only because a couple sober people were good baby sitters. What was weird was the guy causing the problems is the most laid back dude could will ever meet. I have only heard of him wanting to fight anybody twice in the 4 years I have been here.

The OKC shooting was caused by a couple guys that got their feelings hurt by some girls so they opened fire. Nobody died but 1 was in critical condition and 7 more non life threatening injuries. One report said that a pregnant woman was kicked aswell.

Ooops, my bad. I though for some reason that someone had died. But that is a good thing that person lived.

I really don't understand poeple. I really think the death penalty should be givin more for stupid shit like this. I believe that if you shoot at someone, of course self defense in your home or something like that doesn't count. But if you shoot someone in public or something like that I believe they should get a death penalty right away.. I mean seriously though thats what they are doing to the victim. I think if the victim of the damn shooting should be able to flip the switch to kill the son of a bitch too! I swear the world is just goin to shit..

Be very careful though once you get your conceal carry. There is a fine line when to use it and not, but they will teach you that in the class. Very good idea to have it more so in Omaha! I think its just the world we live in now...guns over fists!! Sad, but so true.

I actually just drove by a crime scene. Was having lunch with my buddy and left. Got abt 2 blocks and there were cops surrounding a car on the corner. I asked the camera guy what happened and said someone was shot. Must've happened maybe 5min before I passed

Man that shit is so fucked up.... What happen to settling things by boxing it out or something. Why is there so many pussies in this world that they need to shoot someone over a minor difference or for no reason at all even.

A few riders just took the class in omaha and I guess it was 4 hours in and out completely done so ill just have to see times for it, no idea where to look it up tho.
