There’s a lot of good people in the community commonly called East Williston and Saturday those people became victims when violence took over an event that has long roots in the community–Crabfest.
The black community is filled with folks proud of their culture and who enjoy a chance to celebrate it. We applaud that.
But we also think that those who organize this annual event should take steps to have it sanctioned by obtaining the proper permits. When that many people come together at one time, without security, the odds are something bad will happen.
