Found this in an article in the NY Post. So if it's accurate that fans are banned from doing that, why didn't his parents know that? Native American heritage or not, if It's not allowed in the stadium it's not allowed.


Three years ago, the Chiefs banned fans from wearing headdresses in Arrowhead Stadium, as well as face painting that ‘appropriates American Indian cultures and traditions.’

Re: Shooting At Super Bowl Parade

This is from the Chiefs web site, on one of the pages that explains what is prohibited in the stadium. Don't know why no stadium personnel said anything to them, they could have been ejected from the stadium.

"Offensive or obscene clothing, banners or signs including the use of language or gestures: (1) concerning a person's race, ethnicity, color, gender, religion, creed, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression or national origin, or (2) to instigate, incite or encourage a confrontation or physical assault. This includes headdresses and face paint styled in a way that references or appropriates American Indian cultures or traditions."

When they showed the little boy they also showed Raiders fans wearing black and silver face paint.  I do not think the NFL enfoces their own rules.

I just read that 2 adults have been arrested.


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

Two adults have been arrested in connection with the mass shooting at the Super Bowl parade last week, prosecutors announced Tuesday.

 

Dominic Miller and Lyndell Mays each face charges of second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said, noting that paradegoer Lisa Lopez-Galvan was fatally shot by a bullet from Miller's gun.

 

It appears Mays was in a "verbal argument" at the parade with someone he had no prior history with, Baker said at a news conference.

 

"That argument very quickly escalated to Mays" pulling out his handgun, and "almost immediately, others pulled their firearms," including Miller, Baker said.

 

Both men are in the hospital for injuries sustained in the shooting, Baker said.

 

Both are being held on a $1 million bond, Baker said.

So two adults and no prior history in a verbal argument does not sound gang related. Just whipping out their firearms and getting trigger happy, it's as American as the Super Bowl.

So then how did the teens become shooters?  And why were so many teens shot?  These two adults just whipped out their guns and inspired mass shooting??

Reuters excerpt..
 
Probable-cause statements filed by prosecutors in conjunction with the criminal complaints lodged against Lyndell Mays,23 and Dominic Miller,18, said that both men were themselves hospitalized by gunshot wounds they sustained during the violence.
 
According to those documents, their actions in the crowd were captured on surveillance video. Miller was tackled by a bystander as he ran through the crowd with a gun shouting, "I'm shot, I'm shot."
 
Prosecutors said both men confessed to their roles in the shooting during hospital interviews with police detectives.
 
One witness told police she saw Mays approached by four males, one of whom asked Mays "what he was looking at, because they didn't know him," and that a firearm was visible hanging from the backpack worn by one of the four, the affidavit stated.
 
According to the charging documents filed against Mays two days ago, he acknowledged he was the first to draw a weapon and the first to open fire, and that he singled out one individual to shoot at random as the person was running away.
 
The probable cause statement said Mays told investigators he realized there were youngsters in the crowd but believed any one of them could be armed.
 
It quoted him as recounting to detectives that he "just pulled a gun out and started shooting. I shouldn't have done that. Just being stupid."
 
Court documents released on Tuesday reveal that at least one of the guns used in last week's shooting was stolen. A computer check revealed the gun to be stolen out of Kansas City, Missouri.

It wasn't just two adults. There were multiple shooters including two juveniles. They're still looking for more who were involved in the shooting. There were two "groups" involved in the altercation, not just two individuals. I'm betting those "groups" were gang members. And yes, gangs have adults in their groups. They aren't all kids. 

 

When two rival gangs come together bad things tend to happen. And KC has lots of rival gangs. There's a reason it's nicknamed "Killa City". Do some research on gang violence in KC and it may open your eyes a bit more to the issues they have there. And elsewhere. Gangs aren't limited to the big cities these days. They're pretty much everywhere.

 

This was a good opportunity for the police and law enforcement to come together to address the issues of gang violence, but instead, it's being largely swept under the rug and ignored.
