An unregulated militia consisting of one disaffected youth or an unregulated militia otherwise known as a gang do most of the shootings, but OK.
I'm glad the unregulated left their firearms at their girlfriends house.
The well regulated militia would never discharge a firearm with a crowd in the background. Even if there was an active shooter or an active deadly stabbing underway. Then the well regulated militia (see definition of regulated back in 1783) would have a duty to respond to save life and not endanger other lives. Which means getting close enough to the dangerous person to only hit the person attempting or accomplishing murder.

Felonies are no longer considered crimes here in SB? If that's the case, SB has sure gone radical left wing liberal. Will there be layoffs at the SBPD? That would not surprise me.

Courageously hiding 8370 : Read the post of Lucky 777 and try to think whether that is "serious" or not , and is that what you want S.B. to turn into and just joke it away ?

FOND and GIMLI, so caught up in semantics, why is that? Okay, so you don't agree with the definition of "serious". Fine. Imagine it says "violent" and move on. That's what they mean anyhow.

Rodger Dodger did report on his private alert system that there were several times when large groups of gang members were fighting. We are just fortunate that none of those scuffles turned deadly. The frustration and violence are here, as the nation and world get more tense and people act out.

Technically a citation is an arrest with release on signed promise to appear. But folks need to calm down and stop imagining an impossible society in which no one breaks the rules. Some of these people will be not guilty but most will be souls who just went a bit too far. We are not looking at serial killers in these numbers. Nice that so many people interacted with so little trouble. Perspective is important.

Don't be annoying. They clearly mean there were no violent felonies. No shootings, stabbings, armed robberies, attempted murders, large brawls, etc. related to Fiesta. Which is a minor miracle given the increased number of people, an observable decline in the mental health of many people, and the recent trend of well-regulated militia members turning large groups of people into shooting galleries.
