    Might want to rethink that. The normally dressed kid won't cry racism or discrimination.

    That's another reason. The list will go on and on.

    Maybe they're trying too hard to lean right on the NRA issues and not pursuing this because it's clearly another reason for talking about gun control and gun owner responsibility.

    Because it wouldn't be racism. It would be the fact that I want to hire somebody that's going to do a good job.

    If a white kid walked in with his pants halfway down his ass and his ballcap turned sideways, I wouldn't hire him, either. I'd laugh at him, but I wouldn't hire him.

    People need to step up and take responsibility for the fact that they aren't getting hired because of their own actions - not because of who they are. I had a girl come in my store once, wearing dirty, bleach-spotted sweat pants and a tee shirt covered in food stains. She was carrying a dirty, unkempt baby who had crust around his nose and who's hair hadn't been brushed in probably a week. I didn't hire her either. She was white. It's not about color. It's about appearance.

    If the black community won't listen to Bill Cosby or Colin Powell, fat chance of them listening to you.

    Gosh. Got just 3 posts into the thread and found this massive stench of a post that only comes from the bowels of liberal ignorance. I am sure others have taken your post to task, but I am still dumbfounded at its stupidity.

    So tell us all what "racial slurs" provoke the cold-blooded murder of a 13 month old ?

    Do you have any concept of how completely ignorant your thoughts are in that post ? I'll wager that you do not.

    OMG. Just watched the news, and they had Sherry West's adult daughter doing a phone interview. West lost custody of her when she was very young. West kept changing her stories with her daughter, first telling her the baby was shot first, then that she was shot first. She then asked her daughter how soon she thought the life insurance would issue her a check.

    Re: Police arrest 2 teens in georgia baby's killing

    De'Marquise Elkins, Charged With Murder Of 13-Month-Old Antonio Santiago, Is Not Guilty, Lawyer Says

    The 17 yo boy is now charged with murder. That's incredibly fast given that we don't know what kind of investigation and incriminating evidence the police has to support the charge other than "West has said she picked the gunman out of a photo lineup of 24 mugshots and insists he killed her baby."

    If that's all the police has, than it's a travesty of justice to put this boy and his poor family through this crisis.

    They have more than that. The 14 year old gave him up. They didn't have this guy's name until the 14 year old told him who he was.

    Also, this wouldn't be the first defense attorney to say his client was innocent.

    I don't know what's going on - who did what to whom. I just know the whole thing is off.
