Tommy: Impassioned calls about the Mother's Day Shooting

The horror of 19 people being shot at a New Orleans 'Second Line' parade was something everyone wanted to talk about this morning. Trying to make sense of the senseless violence we deal with on a near-daily basis is one thing, but trying to understand why one or more young gunmen would open fire into a crowd of men, women, and children defies comprehension.
I'd like to share a couple of calls we had this morning. Kiron called in during the 8 o' clock hour...he was at the parade and described in harrowing detail what happened.
Tyrone called and spoke passionately about being a black man angry about the violence in his city.
