Not to hijack the thread, but as some of you remember a few weeks back, we had that yahoo who fired shots into a crowd at a park in McKinney... Police found and arrested a 17yo male....

Our Pastor was there with his family during their sons baseball game, he was filming when it happened... Here is a short clip.

OMG! That is a very scary thing. I am not surprised the kids did not hit the ground immediately. Living in this area we all might have the tendency to lower our guard a bit. Times are changing. Ghetto kids would have all started running. They react second nature to rounds going off.

Wow, seems like a long delay before anyone realized it was gunfire!

In the game, you pay very little attention to what is going on outside the game and it might take several seconds even for something like gun shots to register.

Now, the parents and others in the stands ... They should have reacted sooner.
