I find it interesting that the left seems to only be interested in gun crime when it furthers their political agenda. For a story to get their attention it can’t be racial and can’t involve leftists usually. They pick and choose where to vent their outrage.
And so it goes for Birmingham, Alabama where Sunday night seven people were shot outside a party venue. Another person suffered a knee injury during the chaos of the incident according to AL.com. One of the injured that was shot was suffering a life-threatening injury according to Sgt. Johnny Williams, but their condition has now been upgraded and they are expected to survive.
Police roped off several blocks after the shooting. It was not labeled a “mass shooting” and covered by CNN. There was no march scheduled for that afternoon and not a single politician showed up at the hospitals.
Seven of the injured are in their teens and one is 20-years-old. “We don’t believe most of the persons injured were actually involved,” said Birmingham Police Department spokesman Johnny Williams. “One of the injured persons was taken into custody after he was treated. He will be held as a suspect in this shooting.”
Williams said they are questioning a couple of teens to determine their involvement in all of this. “Right now we’re continuing to investigate to try to determine who is responsible for those injured and we want to get them in custody.”
The shooting took place at approximately 10 pm at WorkPlay, which is a music venue in the downtown area. It is unclear how many suspects were involved in the shooting. The party was just ending as shots rang out.

The shooting took place outside of the club after two men started arguing. Sgt. Timothy Gardiner said that an altercation developed outside the party site before shots were fired.
Walteria Davis, 16, was not at WorkPlay but said her 15-year-old cousin was shot in the behind. She hadn’t had a chance to see him yet but had talked with him on Facetime while he was being treated for his wound. “It’s not right,” Walteria said of the shooting. “Where is it coming from? It didn’t use to be this way.”
Police called parents and told them where to pick up their teens. There were security guards present and the event was hosted by a high school sorority. I didn’t even know there were high school sororities. The victims were treated at Children’s of Alabama where the wounded were being treated.
Family members gathered anxiously to see if their children would be alright… that they would survive this horrific shooting. Thankfully, everyone did.
It didn’t happen at a school or a church. It didn’t fit the mold for the left so you probably never even heard about the shooting. Which is just shameful.
It seems as though black lives matter to the left only when it is politically convenient. I personally think that is racist. And once again, this has nothing to do with the NRA, race or even guns… it has to do with criminals and thugs.

Thief Steals Combat Vet’s Military Mementos – ‘I’d Give My Soul To Get Those Things Back’
Stealing from others is a despicable act in & of itself, but stealing from a veteran who fought for our freedom & security is a whole other ball game. What kind of scumbag would do this kind of thing? We’re hoping this vet gets his belongings back.
Fox 4 Kansas City reported:
“A Mobile veteran served our country overseas more than a decade ago, but the mementos he brought home were stolen.
Carl Sanders Jr. served for four years and had one tour in Iraq.
Most of his memories were packed up in a duffel bag, but it ended up being stolen.
“I don’t regret one second of anything I’ve done serving my country and the people I served with,” he said.
To remember that time in his life he packed up a bag filled with most of his memories. Things like an Iraqi flag and helmet he found on a mission, but most importantly his uniform.
“It’s the boots I lived in, I fought in,” Sanders said. “A soldiers boots and soldiers uniform that’s more important than anything.”
Losing those keepsakes is difficult for Sanders to swallow as he tries to never forget his military service.
“Those things actually reminded me of who I served with, where I’ve been, some of the things we’ve had to do and I don’t ever want to forget that,” Sanders said. “I don’t ever want to let that go.”
While he still has some things, a few pictures and some patches, what was stolen from him goes beyond a uniform.
“I still got a lot of memories in my head, some are hard to remember, some are hard to forget, but as time goes it kind of fades away,” Sanders said. “That’s why I’m glad I do have some of these things, I can always pick up these pictures and look back and always remember.”
While he holds onto what he does have, he hopes the thief realizes what was taken.
“Outside of monetary value things go a lot further than that,” Sanders said. “You never know what something might mean to someone, maybe the smallest little object.”
A soldier’s treasured memories from a half a world away, stolen from a man who served this country.
“God forgive me, but I would give my soul to get those things back,” Sanders said.
From what little he does have left, he is currently putting together a scrapbook for his family so his service is always remembered.”
Somali Whose Deportation was Thwarted by Passengers Is Gang Rapist With Links To ISIS
I have no understanding of people who would allow foreigners needs to take precedence over their own citizens.
These deranged SJW lunatics should have been arrested. When does the left not ever defend a terrorist?
A Somali man whose deportation was thwarted when passengers on the aeroplane taking him out of the country began complaining is a convicted gang rapist linked to an Islamic State fighter.
29-year-old Yaqub Ahmed was about to be returned to Somalia via a commercial flight to Istanbul, Turkey, but around a dozen ‘social justice warrior’ passengers on the aeroplane became aware of his situation when he began groaning and wailing.
They started complaining “They’re separating him from his family” and chanting “take him off the plane” in rowdy scenes recorded by several people on their mobile phones.
Rather than throw off the disruptive passengers or have them arrested for obstructing the course of justice, however, officials buckled to the mutinous flyers and took Ahmed off the flight, while his supporters applauded and shouted: “You’re free, man!”
However, the Mail on Sunday has now revealed that the busybodies were championing a convicted gang rapist, and that one of his accomplices travelled to the Islamic State to fight as a jihadist after their crime.

In August 2007, Ahmed was part of a four-strong rape gang which lured a 16-year-old girl who had become separated from her friends on a night out to a flat in Crouch End, North London, pretending they were waiting for her there.
Ahmed and his accomplices then took turn raping the teenager, who was only saved when neighbours overheard her cries for help and rang the police. All denied the crime, but were convicted with the help of extensive DNA evidence.
The judge sentenced them to a relatively short nine years each — although police detective Emma Bird seemed happy with the terms, saying they “reflect[ed] the seriousness of this offence” — but criminals almost never serve their full term in the United Kingdom, and Ahmed was out after a paltry four years.
It is understood that fellow rapist Ondogo Ahmed travelled to Syria to fight for the Islamic State just months after his release, while accomplice Adnan Mohamud — like Ahmed, a Somali granted refugee status — is still in Britain.
“We need to deport these people and members of the public should not be allowed to obstruct the proper course of justice,” commented Tory backbencher Philip Hollobone.
“Officials accompanying the deportee need to react appropriately to passengers who do not know what is going on. To simply walk off in the face of passenger confusion is not good enough.”
Britain’s record both tracking and deporting illegal migrants in general is very poor.
