Negligent Parents - Criminal Kids


Meh...too little too late if you ask me.

Most of the urban community is lost to violence at this point.

The idea of a hate crime making murder any more murderous of bad is completely bunk in my mind as well. Most people that murder don't hate the person any less if they are the same race.

That is the first I have seen of that white teenager running that black man down. Sad.

No matter what, the issue is highly polarizing and the coverage is such BS.

The first page of a Google search shows that there are just as more stories by "news" organizations referring to the apparently racially motivated murder or Christopher Lane as "foder" to stir up conservative than there are articles talking about the case and the actions and statements of the suspects leading up to the case.

By contrast, the entire first page of a search on James Craig Anderson mentions race and hate crime in each page?

Why the disparity?
