    I wasn’t raised to be prejudice; however, every single day I am reading stories of violence and the perps are always of the same race. Could someone please tell me how I’m not supposed to be prejudiced? How could one race breed such violence and total disregard for human life. And then when one of you gets killed by someone other than of your own color you are holding marches.

      I wasn’t raised to be prejudiced either and I’m still not. I do know that you can’t hold the whole race of people responsible for what some of them do. I hold responsibility on an ‘individual’ basis. That’s difficult for most people to do. That’s the way I was raised. Not ALL people of a race is responsible for what ‘some’ do.

        Also, I’m Praying that the Attendant makes a full recovery.

      I see you’re falling into the same crevice as the rest of them….blaming a the whole group when it’s just ‘some’ of them. Don’t put everybody under the same ‘violent’ umbrella because of a select few who are doing the crimes. Not ALL of them are that way. There are some very successful and respectful citizens in every group. Let’s not lose sight of fairness. And the fairness is to not blame ALL of them because they are not ALL like that. I’m just putting that out there.

    Hope the attendent is ok.

    If these quasihumans can’t be quickly executed under our “justice system,” then they should be deported to offshore prison camps to perform hard labor for life.

    There is no other answer because everything has been tried.

    Worthless people that don’t deserve the air they breathe. One can only hope they meet a terrible fate…but only after immense, drawn out suffering. :-)

    This is already a heavily patrolled corner for drug activity.
    It is amazing this can still happen under their noses.
    I was walking by just a few minutes after the incident
    Could have been me There is now a play area for kids there
    Something has to be done to protect personal safety

    I have no words to describe how disgusted I am with this story. It’s very sad how people are. I hope these people are caught and locked up for a very, very long time.
