GALVESTON, TX – Call it Mardi Gross! Galveston looked more like a war-zone than a party late Saturday. After the festivities ended, people refused to leave. They crowded the street along the Strand, and started throwing barrels and barricades.
Seven people were arrested, no one was hurt and the businesses are okay. A Galveston P.D. statement said in-part: ‘This disturbance was not indicative of the overall law enforcement experience…”
Things were also messy in New Orleans Saturday night. A shooting on Bourbon Street wounded four people. One guy is still in critical condition, and police are looking for the suspect.
It’s sad stuff. If this is supposed to be a ‘good” time, we would hate to see a bad one.
