It might be a significant number. Urban unrest is hard to predict. Any time you get a large group of wild animals together, there is the potential for chaos.

Do you think if they got hosed down with cold water or with misting stations it would cool their jungle fever and therefore we would have less murders?

Another Black Expo, another round of shootings, more kids with guns. Unfortunately, these shootings are almost becoming an expectation.

Much is being said about how to stop the shootings, from curfews to shutting down the event on the second Saturday night.

But those would be Band-Aids. What about the larger questions of why children even show up at an event like Black Expo with guns, and why they join gangs? For those with long memories, it hasn’t always been this way. And, as hopeless as it sometimes seems, it doesn’t have to stay this way.

Where did the social fabric tear? And how should it be fixed?

The Black Expo is bad for Indy tourism and downtown business. Do people want to go to the mall downtown, go eat and shop when there are shootings? Once someone is shot, the average consumer believes downtown is dangerous ALL THE TIME. I think the Indy city planners are afraid to take control of the cities destiny, they are held hostage to political correctness. A health fair/screening is great, but this bling thing at Conseco is a joke! The city needs to get with it and start controlling the product - Indy is a good place to visit, but news like this is bad for business!! I should know, i live downtown and see it everyday!

Last year, This was just one kid on a shooting rampage. The media seems to want to paint this as some crazy shootout in the streets, but it was just one person that went off the deep end. How do you stop one person who decides to do something like this anywhere, whether in a school, in a train station, on a military base, or in the street? I think it is important to understand the situation before blaming the event or black people, the organizers, the attendees, etc. Even with all the proper planning you could possibly do, as we have seen over and over again, it is very hard to predict and stop such extreme actions taken by one person who decides to go on a rampage.

Black Expo is good for the city. Violence happens. It is not a Black Expo thing. It would have whether there was a Black Expo or not.

Black Expo is about build Black People up. It is about Black entertainment. It is about Black fellowship. It is about Blacks moving up the social scale.

Sure there may be violence a dozen or less young people murdered, but this event is important as it build Black esteem and tells all of Indy what the Black community is about.

The goodness outweighs the badness.

Your either a troll or your living under a rock. There is NOTHING good about expo. The retailers and restuants hate it, the cops hate it.Any decent black family would not be caught attending any of tyne night events.Itis a dangerous place. The verbal abuse that these animals spew on the white folks downtown is incredible. Even now you cannot eat outside at any restaurant because of the abuse they get from these animals. Just given them all guns and get it over with.

All of the normal people could walk around with a super soaker and they saw a angry black person they could squirt them in the face with cool refreshing water. It would cool them off and make them rational. The squirted may even get interested in picking up a super soaker to chill out other negroes.

What are you talking about? You are just racist! Black people are human beings.

On any given weekend you hear about a dozen or so crackers killing each other or their kids or their wives. Murder is not a race thing.

If we let crime determine our special events, we would have no commerce at all because we would play it safe.

People die everyday. It is the cost of doing business. It is the cost of freedom.

Looking over one of the worst crimes scenes in the history of downtown Indianapolis, state trooper Rod Russell was sad.

“It’s just a few people who make it bad for everyone,” Russell said.

But the “few” were thousands of blacks who roamed the streets of downtown in the aftermath of an Indianapolis Black Expo marred by fighting, vandalizing, assaulting and even shooting. Lots of shooting. Ten people were taken to local hospitals with bullet wounds.

“Why did we find an AK-47 in the back of someone’s car,” asked Frank Straub, director of public safety, about the 2010 rampage. No one knew, other than the fact the violence is a tradition at the annual event – despite 300 police officers on the street to stop it.

YouTube is now part of the tradition as well: Much of the illegal behavior is captured on video.

Organizers for the Black Expo said their group was “isolated” from anything that had gone wrong.

But in comparison, there was another event recently that attracted hundreds of thousands of people to Indianapolis: the annual Indianapolis 500 at the city’s Speedway.

On race day, state police issued 35 tickets — 27 for underage drinking, two for fake identification and one each for littering, intoxication, false informing and possession of marijuana.

The criminal behavior in Indianapolis during Black Expo is part of a nationwide trend of hundreds of episodes of racial group violence in more than 50 cities over the last three years.

“Before the [2010] Expo, a lot of people in Indianapolis were complaining about the police presence, saying it was too much and it was racist,” said Jake Finnegan, an Indianapolis resident.“But then we saw what happened and they shut up.”

That was 2010. In the run-up to the 2011 Expo, city officials announced a massive increase in police presence. Even so, two weeks before it opened, several people were shot and police broke up several “disturbances” with pepper spray in downtown Indianapolis – all involving groups of blacks near the Canal, witnesses say.

“The violence comes at a sensitive time for city officials,” reported the Indianapolis Star newspaper, because they worry about the image of the downtown and its links to violence.

The 2011 Black Expo passed without large-scale shootings or riots. Event organizer and talk show host Amos Brown III proclaimed the Expo was “violence free!”

“The media hype of last year’s tragedy obscured the fact that the 39 previous Expos were relatively violence free, too,” he told the Star.

But records reveal arrests in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. And the Web holds dozens of video clips showing shootings, police drawing guns and people getting tasered along with lots of other lawless behavior during this time.

Even the Star said,“Although none of the shootings or fights was directly connected to Summer Celebration events or venues, the annual celebration of black culture that attracts more than 200,000 people downtown during its 11-day run has been inescapably tied to the violence.”

Despite the record of violence and lawlessness at their events, officials of the Black Expo sponsored a public forum in Indianapolis to protest the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

“During the course of the forum, an audience member boldly asked if African-Americans should launch an armed struggle,” wrote panelist Brandon Perry in the Indianapolis Recorder.“I hope I’m wrong about this, but the ‘gasps’ came from a few who seemed to advocate armed conflict against racists or the government.”

Just a few weeks ago, two young whites out for an evening stroll near the downtown canal were assaulted by a mob of seven black men. And on YouTube, a resident of Indianapolis posted in May a video of the aftermath of a large group of black people fighting that ended with three people shot and one dead.

“It’s like the L.A. riots out there,” said a video poster known as Justin Beagle who captured the essence of the violence at the 2010 events.

Sad. Black Expo starts on July 12, 2012.

’ve done a little research and spoke with some local law enforcement officials in an effort to understand enforcement costs and strategies for various events. The largest annual event Indianapolis hosts is the Indianapolis 500 race. This event brings 300-500,000 spectators and tens of thousands more to the Indianapolis area during the month of May. The night before the race is an event in and of itself; where thousands of people crowd the streets and parking lots around the Indy 500 track engaging in a Mardi Gras like party. The amount of police manpower required to staff the “Night before the Race” and “The Indy 500” is far less than the manpower required to staff the IBE Summer Celebration. Case in point, Indianapolis Metro Police cancelled days off for every officer for Friday and Saturday of IBE Summer Celebration; and the weekend of the Indy 500 officers’ days off are NOT cancelled.

IBE organizers estimate that about 40-60,000 people flood the downtown area for Expo weekend. That’s a Colts game! Yet, and entire police agency must cancel their officers’ days off and have multiple officers on every street corner within a mile square of downtown, and untold more patrolling on bikes, horse, motorcycles, and on foot. The mayor’s office should release the financial data associated with the staffing needs of the various events hosted by our city. Did our city really expend 1-2 million dollars on just officer man-hours for Saturday night Expo, or was it more? How much in tax revenue did our city earn from this last weekend? I guarantee it wasn’t enough to cover the cost of our public safety officials. If the officers didn’t receive overtime for working on their days off, when will they get their time back? I’ve learned the officers forced to work on their days off will get those days back in the near future. How does this affect the rest of the residents within Marion County? Will other police service districts suffer manpower shortages now that officers will have to “make up” days they were made to work?

Don’t be so delusional in thinking the IBE was a great success because nobody was wounded by gunfire. Everybody who pays taxes in Indianapolis has to pay the cost of this event. Public safety isn’t free.

I wonder what would happen if IMPD staffed IBE Summer Celebration in the same way they staffed a Colts game.

I found an excellent web site. It is call "Stuff that Black People Don't Want to Hear"

http://stuffblackpeopledontlike.blogspot.com

Interestingly, this mall was home to Atlanta's Christmas Nike Air Jordan Riot. As we all know, Black people rioted nationwide over these shoes.

However, the media of Atlanta didn't see fit to report on the Spring Fair at the Mall at Stonecrest riot that happened on May 5, 2012. Information is sketchy at best, but a call to Donald Bieler, the Director of Marketing and Specialty Leasing at Stonecrest Mall, provided the proof that a big coverup of a riot is underway.

And, of course, it was a Black riot.

Mr. Bieler confirmed that there were "incidents" with "teens" (codeword for Black people). He told me that if I wanted to bring my family to the Fair at the Mall of Stonecrest, it should be only during the day on Saturday. And that after "four or five hours" of fun, we should leave.

He said they were instituting a gated fee for entry during Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights ($20.00), hoping that this would be the additional measure needed to ensure safety of the fair attendees.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution, any of the local affiliates (ABC, CBS, FOX, or NBC), nor the DeKalb County paper The Champion have spoken about this incident. The media has one job: to report the news, in an unbiased manner, so as to inform the public.

In Black-Run America (BRA), any news that could put Black people in a bad light is not fit to print. Indeed, it can't be printed. As we learned with The Buffalo News, Black people will threaten a riot if it is printed.

The Black Mecca of America is going down. No one is willing to admit that the spread of the Black Undertow throughout Metro Atlanta has doomed the once thriving suburbs of The City too Busy to Hate.

Soon, Stonecrest Mall will go the way of Union Station (formerly Shannon Mall) in Union City. Once a thriving mall, it now sits entirely - and eerily - vacant, a reminder that when white people stop spending money, the stores profitability dries up. This is called Mall Envy. It is a vivid reminder that there is no Black purchasing power in America, and that in the absence of white people, Black people are grossly incapable of maintaining any infrastructure (be it economic, buildings, quality schools, safe neighborhoods, etc.) that is left for them to keep flourishing. As custodians of a civilization that whites bequeathed to them by simply packing up and leaving town (Detroit, Baltimore, Birmingham, Memphis), Black people have yet - in any city in America - to stop the regression of said city to the mean.

In January of 2012, one of the oldest Chick-fil-A's in all of America had to close at The Gallery at South DeKalb Mall because of falling sales:

Now comes news that the First Friday event in Augusta, Ga.(on July 6) was host to the all-too-common, ubiquitous Black violence we have come to know and love as being labeled “isolated incidents.” In a city renowned the world over for hosting professional golf’s most storied tournament, The Masters at the exclusive Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta is home to a population that is 54 percent Black and 39 percent white when the cameras leave the area once the green jacket is presented.
Before we continue, did you know that First Friday is an event created for Black networking:
In many cities, First Fridays events place an emphasis on African American networking and business opportunities for African American professionals. First Friday is the top networking event for African American professionals and consistently attracts over 16,000 people each month across North America according to First Fridays United. The First Fridays monthly events originated in 1987 as an outlet for African American professionals to mix, mingle and network. During the 1980s it was common for an individual to be the only black professional working in their company. First Fridays happy hours become a way for these professionals to meet in a social atmosphere while exchanging useful information.
Well, the First Friday event in July of 2012 was reminder of why we can’t have nice things in Black-Run America (BRA), with the CBS affiliate in Augusta reporting:
Augusta's First Friday shooting is now considered gang related. Augusta mayor Deke Copenhaver and Sheriff Ronnie Strength are speaking out about where to go from here.
"Personally," declared Sheriff Ronnie Strength about First Friday. "I do not like it."
Have we seen the last First Friday event in downtown Augusta? Deputies are investigating a shooting involving 6 people.
"Every vendor will shut down, put there stuff in their vehicles, and they will leave," said Strength. "Therefore there is none of this going on after 10 o'clock at night."
The mass shooting is now considered gang related.
"We can't say these are young folks looking for something to do," said Strength. "They are also thugs that come down here that are looking for something to do, and they should not be around or associated with law abiding citizens."
Sheriff Strength is issuing an ultimatum to downtown merchants.
"If they want it," said Strength. "They should be paying for this. This is not a city sponsored event."
What else happened at the First Friday event in Augusta, where the shooting of six people has left the downtown business community unaware if the event should continue or be cancelled?

The message is clear. Stay away from anywhere downtown during the Black Expo. If you are white you are taking your life into your own hands. If you are black and law abiding, you may leave in a body bag or under arrest.

Stay away. Be sane. Close the city down and let the marauders have it for the Black Expo. Your life is worth more.

I agree 100%. These merchants and elite blacks are just trying to make money off of the poor blacks.
