The shooting always happen in the same area. I hope it stays that way....The rest of us can just stay out of that area.... The shootings in Holland all happen on the same street too....weird how that works.....

My thoughts are the same......
There are MANY night clubs that are 18 and up.
the 18 year old to 20 must wear a wrist band, or a big X marked on each hand, so it is known they are a minor.
this dose not stop a minor from drinking.

they have to pay a higher cover because they do not buy drinks as the 21 and up patrons do.
this is not something new, it has been around for a very long time.
I don't think it is wrong, as I have said many times, a man/woman, can go to war for their country, yet cant sit down at a bar and have a drink.
if we don't feel that someone is mature enough to drink(and some are not) should we reevaluate the age that our young men and woman enlist into the armed forces?
that's just a thought,I had, adding to your question.
Have a good day!

no thats not correct! I do not go to the clubs for drug or gang violence it just seems when the slightest altercation happens they want to pull guns out... i agree witht the girl that says she dosent go out because of this violence I dont either and thats the reason why Im not risking my life and catching a bullet that was meant for someone else. these clubs need metal detectors... all of them!

<quoted text> I am not quite sure where you are talking about but the nightclubs on this side of g.r have been a violent and death induced place for years. Why people keep going to these clubs is for only a few reasons. Drugs, gang activity, and prostitution are abound in all these clubs along division. The cops know it, the people know it, and the city govt knows it but yet they continue to peddle death and bloodshed just about every couple of monthes every since I have been alive. The guns and the street mentality have not changed, nor has the locations of where it is happening in either.

I thought the same thing. But now, they'll be in our prison population soon. More tax dollars spent on "urban youth." (Is that politically correct enough for the forum?)

Actually no.
You used "they'll", why would the victim go to jail.
Other then that you and your ilk are still quite,,, forget it you wouldn't understand.

I am very disturbed by violent crimes that happen on a daily basis in Grand Rapids. However, what disturbs me more is the media and the press who release the boys name and his location at Saint Mary's Hospital. Thank you Grand Rapids Press and local news media for not only putting his life in danger yet again but also putting our lives (RN's) in danger also. I could care less if the suspect was captured, that doesn't mean it wasn't gang related or that others were involved.
