I have been reading this board for a few years now, and this is my very first post. I really enjoy this site, and I want to think you all for opening
my eyes to a whole new world.
I live in Columbia, MO, and last Friday night / early Saturday morning, June 15th (around 12:30am) 8 shots were fired from a handgun into a large
group of people on the corner of 10th street and Broadway. This location is in downtown Columbia, and is the large business district, which is full of
bars and restaurants.
I have attached a video (link below) of the shooting! This is the weird part. To me it seems the person recording this knew this was going to happen.
Why else would you pull out a camera and start recording this at this exact time. Also notice that after the shots were fired, the whole crowd starts
running for their lives, yet the cameraman never moves. I find this to be very odd.
Also, I know that an owner of a very popular bar / restaurant, located one block away from the scene, called the Columbia Police Department 30 minutes
prior to the shooting to report mass crowds gathering and causing disturbances. She told the Police department that the mass crowd seemed to want to
fight and something was not right; However, the Police department ignored her and were nowhere to be found until after the shooting. Of course, after
the shooting, they show up with full riot gear on with SWAT teams in full force. They are always reactive and never proactive / preventative.
At the very time the shooting happened (12:30am) I was sober driving for a few friends. I was driving along on the south side of Columbia, which I
would call the trouble free side of town, and I noticed 3 separate Columbia Police Officers doing sobriety checks. That's all they want to do in this
town because it's easy. They want to harass the good, tax paying, money generators, and do absolutely nothing about the growing gang violence in the
area. They do the easy jobs because they are scared of the real criminals in the community. Columbia, MO has an awful police force!
That is very observant. Most people would not question that. Welcome to the site. I suppose since this is an introduction forum the thread will be
closed but you can always start a new introduction till you get your posts in to start a thread.
