Juvenile shot adjacent to Mosby

From WTVR:

Richmond Police responded to the 1800 block of O Street just before 1 a.m. There they found the shooting victim, described only as a juvenile, shot multiple times.

Mark Holmberg on Richmond’s “concentrated poverty problem” as a contributing factor in the city’s violence:

As for Stoney’s silence, that’s doubly curious since, on June 8, he assured Jon Burkett that a plan for “swift justice is on the way:”

When I inquired at a 7th district meeting just when the mayor’s plan for swift justice was to be announced, both the council person and a police lieutenant assured us all that the plan was already in place – although for this mayor to have put such a plan in place without a press event touting it defies the laws of politics.

@ Lanny I think this is the plan What a joke. And what’s so sad about this situation, is that we voted this guy into office. We didn’t know anything about him, we just saw a fresh face, and someone new, without any real political experience. Now everyone’s complaining about him.I supported Morrissey, because he had political experience,and I’ve seen the work he’s done in the community as a lawyer since the year 2000. I understand why he lost, and how he lied about his relationship with his current wife,but I still believed that he would ran this city better than what he have in office now, simply based on his political experience. I really like what’s going on in the East End, and downtown Richmond-broad street, but besides that, this city is going backwards.

Lying might be a prerequisite for getting into the Richmond mayor’s office; but whether a candidate actually wins an election might depend on how much experience at lying the candidate has.

Our mayor started when he was young, although he sounds unsure in the video below whether it was when he was 22 or 23. He might get better at it with practice:
“But like Simmons, the witnesses all admitted to lying to police in the hours after the slashing and then changing their stories in interviews with FBI agents during the months after the election.
Stoney, who told jurors he hopes to be a U.S. senator one day, said he initially lied to police because he did not want to give up the names of the defendants, whom he grew close to during long days courting voters in Milwaukee.
‘I wasn’t going to try and get my friends, my colleagues, in trouble. Nor was I going to get the Democratic Party in trouble as well,’ he said.”


(Lying about a crime to keep from getting your friends, colleagues, or your political party in trouble is a different kind of “protect and serve.” And in the youtube video, Stoney didn’t answer the question about his own trustworthiness.)

You’d all better look at the zoning map for the vacant parcels of land, bordering Government Rd. and Williamsburg Ave., surrounding Gillies Creek. If the land is zoned for multi-unit dwellings, there’s a good probability of more to come. Though I realize many salaries for full time employees aren’t high, and if one is single without a partner/roommate to share costs, there’s a huge need for affordable housing. Unfortunately, friends of friends carry guns and aren’t afraid of using them.

Sorry for posting on this topic, I meant for this to address the Glenwood Ridge development. That’s what happens without that second cup of coffee!

@lanny Thanks for sharing. I forgot about that incident. These democrats are far to left for me.
