    And we know very little about crime in the USSR, but what we do know is that there was a lot of police/secret police on the streets. Since the USSR has gone the way of the dinosaur, crime in Russia is even worse than in the USA.

    I think it is more a societal issue, the whole violence/drugs/gangs/poverty/hopelessness problem. Also the lack of social and police control will have aggravated this problem.
    But in the end, this man's killers made personal choices for which they alone are responsible, as each one of us is. Regardless of how challenged their personal circumstances are, there was no reason to beat this 89-year old man to death.

    I was not justifying the crime, I was saying that locking up people in soviet style jails does not solve anything. The reasons for crimes like this have to be addressed because by just jailing people inhumanely will not prevent crimes like this.

    Are you saying It's inhumane to lock up people who commit murder? What do you suggest we do throw them a freakin party?

    Did I write/say that? I was talking about Soviet style prisons and that just locking up is not the answer to prevent new tragedies from happening.

This guy survived World War II, only to be beaten to death in the parking lot, while waiting to escort a friend so she wouldn't have to walk alone.
    So where are Jackson, Sharpton and Obama on this? Why aren't they decrying the racism? Couldn't this guy have looked like Obama's son? After all he's half white?
