    Heinous acts of violence like this are why I'm all for keeping capital punishment on the table. It makes me sick.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    No innocent person deserves what happened to him, and from all accounts I've seen he was a very decent human being and well liked by those who knew him. Nothing pisses me off more than cowards who beat on women, the elderly, children, or those who can't defend themselves and this made me want to vomit.

    The sick thing about it, and I love that you mentioned choices, is that no matter what punishments are implemented on those thugs, their choice bore the most consequence to the victim and those who knew and cared about him. Truly a shame.

    This is how I always try to handle the facts of the case. There is a crime, a victim, and a perpetrator, everything else such as motive, opportunity, and method is relevant, but other factors such as race, sex, etc. are not unless those factors were a part of the motive. Justice is supposed to be blind, and equitable, so anything not relevant means nothing to me.

    Re: WWII Vet, 88, brutally beaten in Spokane, Wash.

    This all happened here in my hometown. I have been to the place the vet was beaten and I would consider that a safe place. Am just surprized nobody happened to come up on them during the beating.
    Both teens were 16 and one turned himself in.
    The Spokane police don't put up with crap from anyone as the very next morning after this beating there was a car rage incident. Some knucklehead got in a collision with another vehicle and then he drove around and rammed into the vehicle again. The perp took off with a nearby parked squad car taking chase calling in backups. They cornered him in a parking lot where he started to ram the police cars . Four policemen answered that with gunshots killing the perp.
    I am hoping the second teen in the beating has one of those encounters with the police here.
