CIAA Tournament Wraps Up With A Bang! Make That Several BANGS!

By now you've heard about the "drive by" shooting in Uptown Charlotte around 4 AM Sunday morning.

The usual MO; a trio of "brothers" got disrespected and decided to shoot up an SUV and a $70,000 Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van, and the entrance to the Hyatt Hotel.


With an AK-47 and an Uzi sub machine gun no less.


It didn't take long before the 3 stooges were arrested, one after a short foot chase that ended just the other side of Tryon Street.

But don't worry says CMPD, this was not a "random act of violence" despite the fact that the perps randomly banged off 40 to 50 rounds in the random direction of the Skye Condos from.... wait for it..... the Government Center Parking Deck.

CMPD is as usual downplaying the seriousness of the shooting, reminding everyone that this is after all CIAA weekend and the shooters as we as the reported victims where in Charlotte for the event.

Cedar's Take: The CIAA brings Black America's culture of violence to Charlotte every year and every year there are shootings and arrests. I don't maybe they have drive by shootings every year at the NCAA Final Four?

Frankly "the CIAA is so black" and since most everyone is from somewhere else and either doped up or liquored up or both this is bound to happen.

But isn't time we send this mess packing?

Statement from CIAA Commissioner Jacqie McWilliams:



institutions and tournament attendees- whether they are visitors or residents of Charlotte, which the CIAA calls home. We're discouraged to hear of the shooting that took place on Sunday morning, especially following six days of tournament events filled with community engagement, great basketball, and family reunion styled activities attended by tens of thousands of people without incident.


We're still awaiting all of the facts and will be working with the City, the CRVA, CMPD and our partners to fully investigate the incident. Together, we are committed to taking action to identify ways to prevent violent behavior. While there were hundreds of events that went incident-free over the course of the week, any act of violence is completely unacceptable to us.


We are exploring ways to create meaningful change in tightening up the parameters of unsanctioned events to ensure the safety of all participants and attendees. We also intend to keep working with CMPD through its "Extraordinary Event" authority to determine new ways we can enhance security.


There's a definite sense of urgency here. We're already developing a committee with CMPD, the City, CIAA and the CRVA to begin brainstorming next steps for significant change and to heighten the safety of CIAA attendees and the community in which we live with our families as well. We are eager to participate in these conversations and making the necessary changes happen. Together we are committed to making the entire event experience as safe as possible year-after-year."


We share an 11-year legacy with the city of Charlotte, and see ourselves together in this.

We also want to commend CMPD for its work throughout the tournament and for apprehending the alleged criminals within minutes of the incident.

Niggers will never change. Trouble follows them no matter where they go. And of course the bs is going to come out of the pio of cmpd.

Maybe I am naive but I don't think this is a race issue. It is primarily a black event, but a white event with the same poor demographics would yield much of the same problems. These are mostly lower income singles and couples who have a large amount of cash from tax refunds who come to Charlotte to party. If they were white we would still have the fights, the shootings, and the other problems. I just don't understand why the city is bearing the lions share of the cost of the extra police, transit, and other affected services.

You're right. Look what happens every time they host the Speed Street event (redneck heaven), any St. Patrick's day event (hello drunken Irishman excuse me, Irish people), hockey games, Easy Riders event, NRA convention.....wait a second...I don't recall a single shooting event at any of those! Much less every stinking year! And none of that counts all of the offenses that occurred in front of officers that they have been told not to enforce so that people can just come here and have a good time. Because we all know everyone walks Speed Street smoking weed in front of the cops since they know they won't arrest them....yeah right.

There was that 1 murder a few years ago during speed street..... But to be fair to the white folk that shooting was at the transit center and pretty sure it involved some dudes from the valley or griertown

Yeah that killing was hood rat related where they was all waitin on the bus at the transit center. It weren't no rednecks waiting on the bus to go back to Cabarrus county!

Thugs + Guns = Shootings.
Multiply by additional hood rats + obnoxious ghetto rap music = More shootings.

Got it.....

Yes, you don't need to be a genius in math to figure this out that it was hood rats. Probably from Hidden Valley area. Red necks do need to use guns to settle disputes now a days, as it is handled the old fashion way. Hood rats aren't smart enough to figure this out, as they point the weapons sideways as this seems to improve their aim. While also sending multiple bullets down range, as this is the only way they are able to shoot the person they are aiming at or innocent bystanders. Those of us who have been properly trained know how to align our sights and aim at center mass of what we intend to shoot. Always aware of our back drop and sight alignment sight picture. Also to shoot until the aggression has stopped, should it take every round in my weapon then this is what they will get.

Don't hate on Kip. He's a good cop that had the worst part of his career in court which believe me he didn't want. Like most of the veteran cops he looking forward to retirement and leaving the mess of CMPD behind to the new genius rookies

I wasn't taking a shot at Kip... I personally like the guy. If anything I was making fun of 11:56

Anon: March 2nd @ 730. If you work for CMPD, your not a real policeman. You an idiot that are one of them in Putney back pocket. I call it as I see it in real life. You are scares to go on certain calls and cover your ass whenever possible. Your chicken shot for an officer.

Somebody not good speller or grammaratizer they are! I realize you're doing this on your phone in your marked police car while you're sitting there not patrolling, but at least double check your spelling....ass... Oh, and it still pings off of that tower there on South Blvd. so we can pretty much figure out who you are even if you're using your phone...ass...but don't be SCARES! LOL!!
