Four people were shot outside a corner store at the intersection of Genesee Street and Kirkland Avenue, in Rochester, NY last night, just a couple of blocks away from the August 2015 drive-by massacre outside a Boys & Girls Club, on Genesee Street, where a total of six people were shot after a basketball game.
Three people died in that shooting.
In total, 7 people were shot in Rochester, NY Wednesday, making it one of the most violent, and bloodiest days in recent history in my hometown.
And yet not a peep from Rochester's Black Mayor, Lovely Warren.
Which is interesting, especially since Mayor Warren recently declared Rochester, NY a sanctuary city, saying immigrants are safe from deportation.
Which as a Cuban-American whose parents immigrated to the United States in the late 1960's, I think that's great.
But what about the citizens of Rochester, NY?
Just how safe are Rochester residents when drive-bys and mass shootings have become a regular occurrence?
And not a peep from Rochester's Black City Council Member Adam McFadden, who heads the City's Public Safety Comitee.
And of course, not a peep from #BlackLivesMatter.
