Even when the evidence points to the probable cause, the Gun Control Narrative must be shoved down the throats of anybody listening no matter what.
The shooting early Sunday morning that killed two people and left 21 others wounded was likely a dispute between two rival groups that came to a head over things said in rap songs or social media posts, Alfredo Ramirez III, director of the Miami-Dade County Police Department told reporters during a press conference Monday morning.
Ramirez, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and other community leaders gathered outside of county police headquarters in Doral to update the case — one of the worst mass shootings in recent South Florida memory — and to plead with the public to help identify the shooters.
“These gun-violence-driven murderers, as it has been said eloquently before me, who are targeting individuals and at the same time hitting innocent people who have nothing to do with their beef, ruining families,” Ramirez said.
Did you like that title? Because whenever possible, exaggerate concepts and inflame passions if it helps reach your goal.
Miami-Dade County Commissioner Keon Hardemon called the recent shootings “acts of domestic terrorism.”
“It’s meant to keep us from having a regular life in Miami-Dade County,” he said.
I have the feeling once it got out of the bag that this was just another nightclub shooting between rappers and minions, the interest among the public began to rapidly dissolve. It is impossible to understand a musical “culture” that may end with generalized shooting, specially when you live in a county where you have mass gathering of people enjoying tropical music concerts and you do not have mass shootings of any kind. Colombian and Dominican Independence parties are well know in South Florida for being rather populated affairs with music, dancing food and booze, and yet you are safe from hooded and masked individuals using you as target practice. Yet you can’t have a rap concert in a pool hall without ending in a hail of bullets because somebody probably disses somebody in their Instagram account. It does not get any more stupid than that.
But it is easier and safer to blame the Gun Culture (Perceived as All-White, a dumb thing to believe in South Florida) than actually stand up and condemn Rap/Gansta “culture” for fear of being tagged racist/Uncle Tom/Traitor.
And thus, the cycle continues and people will get shot again for a Your Mama So Fat joke or equivalent.
