    Teen leaving school jumped for Jordan shoes

    Chaos at Houston-area malls ahead of new Air Jordan release

    Just last weekend, police were called to several locations across the Houston area as people waited early in long lines to receive vouchers for this week's release of the latest Air Jordans. There were reports of shots fired, several fights and shattered glass at one mall.

    A source has also confirmed to Local 2 that the Champs Sporting Goods store in West Oaks Mall was supposed to start selling the new Air Jordnas today but cancelled at the request of HPD.

    For the family in Alief, the frenzy over the shoes came home in a very personal way. They say they're sharing their story to prevent others from becoming victims.

    "Houston and people here in Alief are tired of these things. You know, these thieving, robbing, all this," he says. "We're just tired, you know, and it's time for people to stand up."

    The boy's father says he's spoken to the school's principal in an effort to arrange transportation so he doesn't have to walk from school anymore

    The government should have provided all of these deserving, underprivileged "youths" with new Jordans.....Preferably on my tax dime to help my "white guilt" subside

    The new Air Jordans will make the brothers run faster. Easier to get away from the police.

    I'd jump his ass for a pair of those sweet shoes.

    Risking incarceration is a small price to pay vs. paying for them with my own money.

    And they would match prison stripes for extra 'cred'.

    When it comes to automobiles, it seems as if there are several terms for each part of a car, and rims and wheels are good examples of that. For many people, wheels can be called rims and rims can be called wheels, but the truth is, they are different. While they have the same basic function, work in the same location, and are usually made of similar materials, rims and wheels are in fact two different parts. Simply put, a rim is the outside edge of a wheel, and the two are usually connected by spokes.
