It has been a violent week in Myrtle Beach with several shootings over the weekend including a very disturbing incident where a teenager pulled out a gun and fired into a crowd of people on Ocean Boulevard.
We’ve all seen it, so have thousands of others across the country since it was all unfolding live on Facebook.
It’s similar to what happened 3 years ago, during an incredibly violent Bike Fest. The violence rose to the point where it cannot be tolerated anymore. Immediate action needs to be taken.
Consider This: It could be deja vu all over again, but thankfully it isn’t…yet.
City leaders responded quicker this time with a meeting asking for public comment and input. And then, kept the discussion open instead of going into executive session.
