    But you don't seem to have a problem with insinuating that mother had something to do with her baby's murder? Weird.

    The public defender has said what I've said all along - there has to be evidence that they aren't telling us about, because they are moving extremely fast in this case.

    No word yet on whether or not the gun was used in the shooting, but the cops guaranteed that it was the same weapon. Also, the older boy, Elkins, used the same weapon on 3/11 in an armed robbery. And Elkins' mother was released from jail the day he allegedly shot the baby.

    Dysfunction with a capital D.
    It's "moving very fast" because they have the evidence needed to justify first, a indictment and second a guilty verdict.

    It may well be that these kids were the prerpetrators.

    An indictment means a Grand Jury heard the evidence and agreed with the prosecution.

    I'm telling you guys, Brunswick is a plantation community.
    Perhaps the plantation attitude is justified if you've got thugs like these roaming the streets shooting anything in sight.

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

    From what I have seen in this thread so far it seems almost everybody has an opinion and has watched one too many episodes of CSI. There are only three things we know for sure.

    1) A baby was shot to death with a pistol, NOT an assault rifle

    2) of all the people involved, the baby was shot by a black person

    3) nobody in Congress or the White House has mentioned disarming black people

    Why do you suppose that is? Shouldn't our leaders be jumping at this opportunity to save the children?




    I'm waiting to see how many of you armchair psychologists will apologize for your speculation once the truth comes out.

    Maybe, but we are just trying to talk it through...It is a subject of interest.

    1) A baby was shot to death with a pistol, NOT an assault rifle
    Yep, and the gun involved has little bearing on the case.

    2) of all the people involved, the baby was shot by a black person
    I see very few people bringing race into this thread, other than one or two posters that have been roundly slapped down by everyone on both sides of the debate.

    3) nobody in Congress or the White House has mentioned disarming black people
    Why would they do that? Are there not white criminals that commit these types of crime?

    Why do you suppose that is? Shouldn't our leaders be jumping at this opportunity to save the children?
    I don't think that the race of those involved has much to do with the facts of the case. Maybe we should stick to that.

    City Commissioner and Mayor Pro Tem James Brooks was arrested last night influencing a witness and obstructing an investigation. Apprently he blocked the County Sheriff from talking to Elkins' mother when she was leaving jail the other day.

    guns don't kill people....black people kill people (relax folks it's a joke) race shouldn't be an issue here. anyone who shoots a baby is a scumbag, be they red, yellow, black or white (or any shade in between)

    Good points. My angle here (besides all the armchairing going on IE the mother must have done it because she acted in contradiction of the psych paper I read last week) is that we are currently in the midst of trying to make wide sweeping laws to limit weapons for people who do not commit the majority of crimes with them. In this case we have several components of where the majority actually do occur, young black men with pistols. As much as people on a debate forum love to argue I get very little response on this. From my side I am being somewhat hyperbolic. We can see statistically where and by who gun murders occur, and yet the new batch of laws do not address them. I expected people to jump on the violation of people's rights involved with going door to door in poor neighborhoods to collect illegal guns, but they have not which is troubling in itself. Doing so, while it may be effective in curbing gun crime, would still be violating people's rights by illegal search and other issues. My point is that the proposed new laws would violate these same rights, and since the administration is willing to violate personal rights they should do it in an effective manner. Nobody has bit.

    So don't get me wrong, I'm not jumping to the conclusion that the alleged shooter did it because he is black. I do however think that the same boy (or man, depending on your perspective) showed a serious lack of human compassion with the ability to point blank shoot an infant in the face. Holy ****. I would bet there are trained soldiers who couldn't do that. That alone says we have serious societal problems, be they limited to poor black neighborhoods or not. This case needs to carefully studied for ways to fix this problem. It is not going to be quick or easy, but THIS is where we need to start, not with bans. It is clear he has a loving mother, she lied and went to jail trying to protect him. Has there been any mention of his father?

    What precisely is the plantation attitude and where on earth is it that there are no thugs?
