North Vallejo Little League suspends games after shooting
League official wants community to address safety issues
http://www.timesheraldonline.com/news/ci_2305...

A non-injury parking-lot shooting outside a North Vallejo Little League game Wednesday night resulted in a near-immediate league-wide game suspension.

North Vallejo Little League President Greg Reason said by phone Thursday that he is not happy to have to call for the freeze. Until the community can come together to discuss safety issues at the teams' Thurmon Field, however, he stands behind his plan to address safety issues as a top priority.

"We know it's the right thing to do, we just hope some good can come out of it," Reasons said.

No one was injured in the shooting, which reportedly stemmed from an argument around 7:30 p.m. between two men at the game that continued into the parking lot, Vallejo police said. The apparent intended victim was able to get in his car and drive away from the 460 Corcoran Ave. lot before the car was hit by gunfire, Vallejo police Lt. Kenny Park told the Times-Herald Wednesday.

The North Vallejo Little League will hold an emergency meeting at 11 a.m. Saturday, at a location yet to be determined but likely at the field or inside the nearby Continentals of Omega Boys and Girls Club, Reason posted on the League's Facebook page.

"I don't know how this is going to go," Reason said of the meeting. "All I know is we need to discuss what it's going to take for us to get back on the field. We've got to take back our community; We've got to able to feel safe when we're out there enjoying a family game."

Reason said he could think of at least one way the community could help ensure better safety at League games - better community involvement.

"What we're going to need is more volunteers. We need more people to step up, instead of just waiting for things to happen, waiting for things to be delivered to them," Reason said. "A lot of people just sign up and drop their kids off and feel that everything is just going to be delivered to them. Some even feel that board members get paid - that's not true, we're all volunteers."

It was unclear Thursday whether police, who did not return several calls for comment, had made any headway in investigating the case. They initially described the suspect as a 6-foot-tall mixed-race male in his mid-20s, weighing about 250 pounds. He was armed with a semi-automatic handgun, police added.

Just deny all blacks access to the park and the team; we ALL know what the problem is but where is the courage and the will to finally stop hiding behind politically correct gestures? Welfare equals crime.

'wang' if 'you people' deny access to all Blacks, who will help the whites win the game!

Two (2) teams of all white kids will result in a 6 inning 0-0 tie.

You have that george bush thinking process: kill the kids and the parents.

The punks who did the shooting were not on the field stupid donkey.

As long as 'you people' keep making guns and make the purchase of guns as easy as buying gum this will keep going on.

Look in the mirror 'wang'and see the problem.

Well said Mr. Reason.
Maybe the community will come together and is willing to protect their asset,(their child) by following and supporting your lead to suspend!
Who brings a weapon of any kind to a friendly recreational game?
Why is a (healthy) community tolerating some sick animals living amongst them who continue to pollute and destroy the limited spirit that remains?
Be an example to your children and your neighbors by participating and no longer tolerating what has become a way of life here in Vallejo!

How up setting the shooting is.

I used to play at the 'old' ball field before the solano college moved in.

Guns. Nothing you can do about. Just hope a stray bullet does not hit you or a loved one.

I wrote out of anger and frustration and I don't really mean deny access to all black people, just those who have bee raised on welfare; they are the number one source of Vallejo's violent crimes and it's crappy reputation. One "strike" is all anyone should get, instead of continually giving trash ANOTHER chance. The stupid, hip-hop "culture" of the President and his replusive, glutinuous family, the BET racist mentality of his embarrassing wife are a major source of America's decline and acceptance of the behavior of these
"humans". Over 95% of black voters voted for this socialist rat; what does that tell us?

Russian muslims. Funny how that's left out of your BS moronic nonsense. And denying that the black "culture" is killing black people, at this point is a joke. It's like arguing that the sky is purple. Parts of Vallejo look like East Oakland. Black people have to fix this themselves instead of posting gibberish on a website, blaming gun makers. Who made the punks steal the gun and then shoot it? Did whitey do that too?!?

Big Daddy, we need to come together and put a strict security in place for these games. How about this. If you want to attend the games, you need to park in a designated lot and walk to the field. Older and disabled can be dropped off. Strip these young fools of their stuff and everyone will be safer.

reading the headline I first though of North Vallejo LL, and my guess was right. What is wrong with black people ? I guess one day this issue will solve itself by all the black people shooting or aborting themselves. If you don't like this current situation thank the democrats and remember to vote for law and order, lower taxes, common sense not rainbows and unicorns.
