Mike, I agree, that's TERRRIBLE I agree with all that has said that we need to extinguish more of these a$$holes so we can tow our boats through places and not have to worry. BTW, I did tow through Gary this past summer at night, didn't know i wasn't suppose to. I hope the lad makes a FULL recovery.

Default Be careful!!

Im sorry to hear about your friends problem here in my back yard. I own a trucking company and my units operate thru Gary everyday. I have both white and black drivers, They keep on the truck routes, when in town, and as you can expect always keep an eye out for problems..
I pull my boat thru town at different times, but once again there are areas that you have to be very careful, its a shame that for such a big city, you have to stay on the lit streets and keep your window up and dont talk to anyone.. But Detroit,chicago,Indlps and other major cities have the same problems and same areas..
Once again Im sorry that it happen and our best hopes on recovery go with him..

I wish your friend the best of luck and the piece or crap that shot him the worst. Its too bad that life has such little meaning to so many.

That's terrible, I wish the best in his recovery.

Sad that things like this must happen....It's absolutely senseless.

Hmm.., I wonder why the Miss USA Pagent decided to pull out of Gary? I frequent Gary on sales calls and E219 is correct. You really need to watch what you do in that town. It was dubbed the murder capitol in the nation!!! I think it is still in the top 5, if not #1. I wish the best for your friend and a speedy recovery!!

A bit of an update......turns out the x-rays shed some positive light on his injuries. The bullit hit his femur and was deflected upwards till it hit the pelvic bone. Did not damage the pelvic bone to badly. Broke the femur though....will require surgery and much physical therapy.

It turns out he panicked and ran away. Was shot while running away. Shot in the back if you will. And as far as I know, the perp has not been caught. This guy is a day driver. Never an overnight trip. And according to his mother, a careful person.
