Lord help us....When will we stop this killing period. I am a mom so I hurt for the parents who have to face this battle. I fault the club owners and they should be charged for not protecting customers in their business. Because of their carelessness 2 young people are dead and 6 hurt. We want the Mayor to burn this club down and charge the owners with murder. No other club in this city has a history like this club people been killed there for years and yet they continue to only care about the money. If you want to bring your gun in you had to pay a high price. So if you want to kill someone you paid the toy cop 100.00 and tell them it's only to protect yourself. I ain't going to pull it unless someone comes for in with your gun!! With that said let remember it is God's and it will be done. He has a plan that we have to play a role in.he is all knowing and he will deal with the shooter and anybody who help harmed a child of his.To the family I am so sorry for your lost.

With so many other choices why would anyone want to attend this club. Over 5 murders within the last few years and now this. The owners may have been trying to provide a place for people to enjoy..but me as a cluber has many more choices to choose from or just stay home and listen to my own music..Jezz

My heart goes out to the family and Friends of both victims. Their lives was taking far to young. Doe b gave back to his community with free turkeys for thanksgiving and free hair cuts when the children went back to school he will truly be miss. Kim had her hole life ahead of her. RIP KIM J. AND DOE B.

It is a shame this had to happen, where are all the Black Leaders and why have they not stepped up to condemn this kind of actions, they quick to condemn when they think an injustice has occurred, when this is the greatest injustice that can happen .
