Social media -- embrace it for better or for worse. In good times and very bad times. I really feel for the families who should be commencing a summer of fun instead of a summer of grief. For all the most stupid, stupid reasons. From today's AJC:
Eight other youngsters were wounded in the 'total chaos" that broke out at the party. "People were just peeling out of here. They were running, screaming, carrying on," said Pete Cox, 38, who saw teens scrambling after the melee at the St. Ives Crossing apartment complex in Stockbridge. Cox lives near the apartments' clubhouse, where the graduation party was held. Police said attendance may have swelled to 300 teens before a fight broke out and shots were fired. Police said the two slain teenagers were shot.
Another angle for local media and bloggers to work that could incorporate citizen journalism is how will, if at all, Grady Hospital factors into this chaotic crime scene? This is a great opportunity to put the face of immediate reality, particularly in the 'burbs, onto the ongoing story about Grady.
