Live Ammo Music Video At 320 30th Ave. N.
This information comes from the Commander of the Fourth Precinct, Michael Martin, by email...
Martin says "We...executed a search warrant at 320 30th Avenue North today as a result of shots fired and 2 weapons arrests last night that led to the recovery of shell casings, ammo packaging and gang evidence.
"More than 20 [Name That Shall Not Be Glorified] gang members were filming a rap video there last night and fired shots in the air. Unfortunately the SWAT team had to shoot a large dog that charged them upon entry."
Martin didn't specifically say whether the music-video-in-progress was recovered as evidence.
UPDATE: August 12, 2008. Word on the street is the house in question is owned by Cynthia L. Fernandez, who does not approve of the methods I use to fight crime in my part of the neighborhood. (Well, not just me, but I'm the most public about it)
Fernandez apparently prefers the make-'em-smores and sing Kumbuya method of dealing with gang members, which I prefer to call "enabling." The arrest makes my point. Word on the street is Fernandez was hinting cops planted a weapon. Yeah, well, I'm still waiting to see the music video and I'm hoping to make that judgment for myself, but I already have a knee jerk reaction. It starts with "bull" and ends with an expletive.
