During the weekend’s release of the Air Jordan 7 “Olympic”, another big brawl broke-out in Pennsylvania. Carlos Mejia, 19, was charged for sending three kids to the hospital; one a 17-year-old boy who was treated for a head wound, Joel Fernandez, 21, was stabbed to his abdomen, and Christopher Vega, 19, was treated for stab wounds to his ribs and arm. The knife used by Carlos, was later found in a nearby garbage can.
It’s sad to hear these types of violence take course while people camp-out for their awaited releases. There has been no confirmed news on whether this altercation was about the Olympic 7 release, or if it was an erupted argument led into this brutal fight while camping out. Despite what it was about, these types of violence during releases need to stop. It’s pointless, senseless, and just not necessary. Stay tuned to Sneaker Bar for more updates as it develops.
