As noted in the prior comments, there was a recent “ruckus” among thousands of “young people” in Fort Lauderdale, according to CBS Miami reporting.
Sadly these malcontents have apparently migrated north up the coast and have caused another ruckus in Myrtle Beach.
MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Three people were killed, and another injured in a shooting at the Bermuda Sands Motel on Ocean Boulevard late Saturday night, a police official confirmed. Police continue to investigate, and are asking the public for video and information of the incident.
Officers responded to a report of a large fight in front of the motel near First Avenue North at about 11 p.m., stated Myrtle Beach Police Captain David Knipes. Before officers arrived, three shots were fired by a man, striking and injuring Keith Williams. The man who shot Williams was described by police as a black male wearing black pants and a white shirt with writing on the front.
It is believed the people involved in the fight then fled to the second floor of the motel, Captain Knipes stated. As officers were tending to Williams, another offender went to the second floor and fired multiple shots at the people involved in the fight, striking and killing three people. It is believed the offender fled out the rear of the hotel.
Deputy Coroner Darris Fowler has identified the victims as Devonte Dantzler, 21, of Summerville, SC; Jamie Williams, 28, of Ladson, SC; and Sandy Gaddis Barnwell, 22, of Summerville, SC. All three deaths were ruled as homicides. The victims died of trauma to vital organs due to gun shots.[Professional journalists know to provide key medical context others would miss]
Police also arrested two offenders who were involved in the fight before the shootings, according to the police report. They were arrested on other charges related to the investigation, and not related to the shooting of any of the victims.
Mayor Rhodes speaks out
“I don’t know if there’s anything I could say that could satisfy our residents and the business community in our city right now,” said Myrtle Beach Mayor John Rhodes.
WMBF News spoke with the Mayor on Monday to see if the city has plans to make changes to Memorial Day Weekend security in the future to prevent crime. The short answer is yes.
“I’m fed up with it; I’m mad as hell about it,” added Rhodes. “Something has to be done and whatever we have to do to correct this thing, that’s the direction we’re going in.”
This triple homicide is one of five shootings in Myrtle Beach in less than 48 hours. Rhodes said this crime trend does not reflect the true Myrtle Beach.
“This is not Myrtle Beach. This is Memorial Day weekend that has been the black biker rally that all this is taking place,” added Rhodes. “This is not what happens the rest of the year, so please don’t look at this as something as a habit that happens every week.”
The city government begs your pardon. Mayor Rhodes is not a seasoned politician and certainly did not intend to imply any correlation whatsoever between black biker week and the violence that accompanies it with the consistency of a Myrtle Beach tide. What he meant to say upon further reflection is that we must all come together to combat racism in all its repugnant and reprehensible forms.
Gluten-Free Misidentification: Our Best Ideas
Well boys, we couldn’t keep the wool-pulled forever. It’s been a good run. Though as foul as it may be, we all knew this day would arrive. Not only has a journalist finally noticed that we white men control Hollywood…the bastards have actually put it to print. I suppose we can throw out the Red Terror or Holodomor or Haiti 1804 in hopes those will shut them up as usual. But I’m not optimistic. They’ve gone there. And we better re-capture the narrative quickly. Anyway, here’s the hate article.
For generations, mass entertainment has been overwhelmingly controlled by white men, whose escapist fantasies so often revolve around vigilantism and sexual wish-fulfillment…
As Rodger himself made so grievously clear, we’re only as strong as the stories we tell ourselves.
Yes indeed, those stories we tell ourselves. Does anyone have Dershowitz’ number, by the way?
Should You Consider Quantitative Easing on the First Date? Girls Who Say Yes!
There are certain words one just doesn’t say anymore. Words that have been rightfully banished from society’s lexicon. Words of such pain and hatred that even the foulest lips fear them to pass. We all know the one that is most verboten: Girl.
the BBC is once again under fire. Only this time, the dispute involves a rather less offensive term … girl.
The corporation was accused of censorship after cutting the ‘G-word’ from a documentary on the Commonwealth Games.
It will all be very interesting when there are more than 26 proscribed terms–thus requiring parenthetical notations of the offending word. The teacher was fired for writing the F(7)-word in an online forum. Grunts, gesticulations, and perhaps pelvic thrusts could temporarily substitute, though obviously these too will come to cause aggrievement for those parties who profit from being aggrieved.
