Girl shot in aftermath of MLK "Marade"

Posted: January 16, 2012 - 6:01pm

KATV — Little Rock Police say an 18-year-old female was shot shortly after the "Marade" in downtown Little Rock had ended.

Witnesses told police that a group of girls were fighting in an alley near 18th and Battery Streets when two vehicles pulled up. Two groups of guys started shooting at each other at opposite ends of the alley and the teenager was shot by mistake, according to police.

The girl was shot in the elbow and the stomach and taken to the hospital.

The marade is an annual parade honoring the late Dr. Martin Luther King Junior.

Cpnspiracy

The girl was 18 and the victim of aggravated battery. This took place at 18th and Battery...

I think Freemasons must have been involved. This is just too creepy.

Also "marade" is a really, really stupid word. I hear it's supposed to be a contraction of "march" and "parade", but that just seems redundant. I realize the argument could be made that there is some slight difference in the meaning of the two words, but the difference would be small enough that the conjoining of the words into a new word would yield so little to the idea one is trying to present as to make it not worth the endeavor.

Seriously though, 18th and Battery. It's either Freemasons or Reptilians.

the real conspiracy
Unpublished

is that this happened in a crowd of people, and no one will have seen a thing.

Somehow fitting....

...but in a sad sort of way.

We had to talk about this

We had to talk about this 'marade' thing in the newsroom today. We question this term.
Also, shot in the elbow - shudder.
