    The violence and lack of respect for natural law continues to escalate throughout the country. As a country we need to give to the poor only enough so they can help themselves. A person needs to take responsibility for one’s self. Our Founders felt that public welfare would corrupt the government and the poor. One look at current affairs seems to confirm this thought.

    Your right it isnt a hate crime, because it wasnt racially motivated but I disagree with the comment ” blacks are allowed to run free….” I am also black and although I feel your frustration its not that we get away with it because they WILL find who did this? Its the fact that many younger blacks dont value life anymore, as well as some other races, and some of us choose to live up to the mal stereotypes, because they make the choice to take from ppl instead of work. This is the life that they think is sweet. Blacks dont make guns. PERIOD
