What worried me is, this will not only add to the gun control debate, but also
to the debate on race. People on both the right and left will exploit this for
political points, all but forgetting there is a family in Australia grieivng the
loss of their son and brother. To them, he's now just a statistic.
what is telling is the parents think they are "good kid"(s). The
parents evidently had no understanding of their children and little control.
Now four families will suffer.
My mom would say; what is the world coming to.
Truth is this story is already being buried. Where is Obama with his race
baiting words"if I had a son he would look like Treyvon. Oh wait Treyvon was
black. But Brack you are half white so why could not Chris look like your son.
Reason your sitting on your duff is white doesn't sell.Have we heard
Jesse(shakedown)Jackson demand justice for Chris. How about Al(Dixie Peach
Pomade)Sharpton and his 100 city rallies. Where is the media with WHITE hiapanic
shooters? All of the above had not trouble whipping the Zimmerman case into a
race frenzy but they are silent now. Not much of a shock to me.
I trust these black murderers will be charged with hate crimes in addition to
the murder itself?Right Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and barack?
Isn't that what should happen?
It is such a cowardly act by these three thugs. I can't see how the parents
are claiming they are "good kids". Clearly you have something really
wrong with you to do something like this just for fun. Imagine the outcry by the
african americans if it were a black kid murdered by 3 white boys just for fun.
They would pull the race card, as always. It sickens me that there are kids like
these out there in America, and it is only a matter of time until they do
something destructive. I hope the get the maximum sentence and I never have to
look at their picture again.
Yeah, I kinda figured that all those people crying out for justice in the
Zimmerman/Martin case would be silent on this one... No tweets from Jay-Z, Al
Sharpton or even the POTUS... No surprise there...
Let's kill someone just for fun? You've got to be kidding me! These 3,
if convicted should get the maximum sentence possible under the law and the
world will be a better place.
Evil people exist in this world, and we must never pity nor tolerate them. We
must identify them and protect society from their predatory actions forever.Race is not a factor, although some may see a pattern, but rather the
depravity and soulessness that festers when innocent children are born to
mothers unable and unprepared to raise children. They are then raised in a
culture that too often praise dependency, condemns achievement, deny personal
responsibility, reject the concept of right and wrong, or respect for others.
These are common among the dependency class which has arisen from
liberal welfare programs, although started with the best of intentions and
compassion, they are irrefutably failures by any objective measure. Worse, they
have destroyed the nuclear family, especially in the African American community,
and mocked and degraded religious values as well as any message that high moral
standards, education, hard work and personal responsibility will result in a
better life.So,instead we have "bored" teenagers, already
engaged in criminal activity, who murder an innocent man in cold blood "for
fun." That is pure evil. These actions must result in the most severe
penalties if we are to be safe.
@DN SubscriberExactly how is it not racist? Do you know the criteria
they used to select their victim?
@shawnm750"Yeah, I kinda figured that all those people crying out for
justice in the Zimmerman/Martin case would be silent on this one.."Because the suspects were arrested and charged... the system is kinda going as
it's supposed to go. The outrage over Zimmermann that built up was because
the guy killed Martin and wasn't arrested or charged. I guess you all are
too busy race-baiting rendering you unable to identify that distinction between
the two cases...
So now a recent article came out that these three thugs were tweeting racial
slurs against white people just a few days before they killed the victim. so we
can safely state that it was a hate crime. Where are all of the outcries and
statements of the same leaders pulling the race card? Similar topic:
why is it that many african americans feel that they can use racial slurs
amongst themselves, but as soon as a person of different skin color says it it
is so taboo? Just curious.

crazy cat ladies may call themselves "crazy cat ladies" but take offense
when others do. Any group may claim labels within their own group that are not
acceptable when applied from one group to another.
Contra- you missed on both. One guy is mixed, you know the same way Obama is,
Tiger is? But they still go by "black", so they were 3 black
individuals. They had tweeted out racial slang before the killing. I think it
was a hate crime. Also, some black young people think it's cool to call
them selves the n word as a way of feeling "Gangsta" it's a moniker
of honor in a way amongst themselves. It's not the same as me calling
myself fat and letting all my fat friends do the same. I may call myself fat out
of disgust or pity, they don't, it's completely opposite. It's a
hypocritical way of dealing with race tension. Act tough and "gangsta"
by calling yourself and others the n word, but if a different race says it,
pretend you are offended and call Al Sharpton! Bill Cosby said if young black
people couldn't start respecting themselves and not using that word, how
can they possibly expect others to do the same?
These guys were also high school athletes. We're told that sports
participation promotes good character but over and over again we hear of high
school athletes being involved in horrible crimes. I certainly wouldn't
advise anyone to get involved in high school athletics. Too many of them get
mixed up in violent crimes, drugs, promiscuous sex, etc. Why in the world to our
schools sponsor these character eroding activities?
These people need to be given what they took. They are telling people they did
it for fun, unbelievable! Let them go and guess what, next week they are going
to do it again because they got away with it the first time. I am glad they are
trying them as an adults.
