B.S. Don't blame the music. Blame the trash that started the fight.

TABC / Police / Health Dept./ Fire

should crack down on Grahams:

underage drinkers, smokers, unsanitary, filthy bathrooms that do not work -- no running water, P_iss & CA_CA all over floors; toilets don't work;

more people inside on Friday than fire code allows, thefts in parking lots, cholos urinating everywhere; unsanitary bar workers, glasses not washed properly;
bottles of liqour watered down; hot beer served, un-airconditioned sweltering HOT environment >>

ghetto club needs to be shut down, a disgrace, like the one in San Antonio, gangs , narcos; & cholos hang out there looking for trouble,

Its the trash that attends hip-hop events that should be blamed. The promoter of these events should take these events to Juarez, where these "color" wearing, gun carrying attendees could have a place to be themselves and have a chance to fire back.

Whether soldiers were involved in the incident or were merely innocent bystanders, the Fort Bliss commander needs to immediately put Graham Central Station offf-limits to soldiers.

The problem is a multifaceted one:

Idiots that believe they are gangsta because they use a gun. Good job shooting innocent bystanders.

El Paso's hip-hop patrons are usually the low expectation and low IQ types. It has always been this way in El Paso.

This nightclub tries to be an all-in-one type but succeeds only in bringing out the low hanging fruit of each genre to include: country, dance, latin and to combine the hip-hop crowd this night made it all the more volatile. Drunk rednecks, drunk cholos, drunk GIs, and black thugs get into fights in their own club by themselves. I got a great idea: let's mix them all together!

All the good girls and women who were in bed at 2am to get good rest for church in the morning are now praying for the tramp-stamped scantily-clad heartbreaking women who are now maimed and laying in a hospital bed.

"About 22 security guards were working at the club when the incident occurred, Elam said, adding that the weekly hip-hop shows at Tejano Rose will be discontinued.

"We just feel like (hip hop) might be part of what happened," Elam said."

So...what exactly are you trying to say here Mr. Elam? Don't be shy.

Graham's always stuck out in my mind as a ghetto place anyway. It was the only club I had ever been to in El Paso that had a dress code prohibiting things like hoodies, jackets with hoods on them, bandanas, etc.

22 security guards is alot of security, especially for a club of that size. I'm guessing they were well aware of what kind of element the "hip hop night" was attracting.

it's the soldiers coming in from other cities thinking they are part of a gang. I've seen it myself, the dirty south is run by the blacks okay but when you come to CHUCO you gotta play by our rules. Try to frick off and this is what happens.

What were the shooters? It's not the victims, it's the killers.
