Shocka! Gunfire Erupts at Narcocorrides Nightclub

There was a shooting at Club Caliente on Ceder Lane Road that must have simply shock everyone – except me and people who have been to Club Caliente. It is apparently a club known to be frequented by aficionados of Narcocorrides which is a polka like form of music based on glorifying drug runners, coyotes and murderers. Basically it’s like Mexican Ganster Polka.

Anyway, before it was Club Caliente the place was known as Club Latin and had a history of police calls and drug activity. I’ve never been but I was just told that the Mexican Narco sub-culture (the Spanish guys who dress like cowboys) is the main audience for most of their events though there is sometimes a good mix of people. But it’s apparently well known in certain quarters that traffickers like to unwind there, so this sort of thing is no surprise:

GREENVILLE, S.C. — Greenville County deputies said they are investigating a shootout in the parking lot of a nightclub Friday morning.

The shooting happened about 4 a.m. at Club Caliente on Cedar Lane Road.

Investigators said that people in two cars started firing at each other. They said a deputy was inside the club at the time of the shooting, responding to an unrelated call.

Both groups fled. No one was hurt that we know of but since some gang bangers are wanted and/or here illegally they may not have gone to a hospital if they were so who knows. Add this to the list of dives I’m going to tell you to stay out of.

    You just blew my mind. So drunks shouldn’t carry guns? What could go wrong?

    Sarcasm my friend. or as Jon Luvits would say…” Acting!” in fact it’s tough to go out to diner with the fam and pick a place where alcohol isn’t served, or leave the gun in the car. No concealed weapons in establishments that serve spirits. so, no, alcohol and guns do not mix.

    Yeah, when I was a wild eyed Libertarian I used to say you should be bale to be armed everywhere. But bars should be able to ban weapons if they want – it just makes sense.

    Google this “spotting a hidden gun”, then click on images.

    The first image which should come up is a chart of some sort, which a New York detective came up with in regards to spotting a hidden hand gun on a person.
