Meanwhile, Here In Charlotte...

...where the CIAA Tournament, a basketball event that showcases the talents of players from historical African-American colleges, including Charlotte's own Johnson C. Smith University has been taking place this week, two people were shot in an Uptown Charlotte hotel full of CIAA fans.

Shot in the legs, a practice I have read is called leg warming by the Usual Suspects.®

I'll state up front for the record that in the dozen or so years that Charlotte has hosted this particular event, this is the first Usual Suspect®-style violence I can recall associated with it, probably because for the most part the CIAA alumni are mature individuals in their 30's, 40's and 50's, with some even older. My own hotel this year, however, hosted a busload of younger people - - a band - - in addition to the regular older guests. I can't help wondering...

They know they will get away with it, until they don't... THEN there will be mass uproar over how the choirboys got shot...
