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.

Yep, and the gun involved has little bearing on the case.1) A baby was shot to death with a pistol, NOT an assault rifle
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.2) of all the people involved, the baby was shot by a black person
Why would they do that? Are there not white criminals that commit these types of crime?3) nobody in Congress or the White House has mentioned disarming black people
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.Why do you suppose that is? Shouldn't our leaders be jumping at this opportunity to save the children?
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

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.

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?
