    The public may like to know things about the man, including the fact that he was a WWII vet who had been wounded while fighting for his country. That information should not cause any emotional problems.

    He selflessly fought to protect our freedom and to help people in other countries to be free...He fought for america so he could live in peace and not be a victim of lawless, feral, subhuman savages.

    He fought to preserve a country that he could live in and go about his business without fear..

    It's the contrast of what happened to a man who bravely defended our (former) way of life. Not JUST the fact that he was a veteran.
    He didn't just talk the talk. He walked the walk.

    Negroes commit OVER HALF of ALL violent crime in america despite only making up 13% of the population. That is a fact. I've proven it in page after page with FBI and Justice Dept. statistics...It doesn't matter whether you accept it or not. Everyone knows it is true.
    You keep trying to deflect and dodge the facts and randomly assign motives to me that are obviously fantasy so you can avoid admitting the truth. It isn't working.

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

    Delbert Belton in Washington, Christopher Lane in Oklahoma, and David Santucci in Memphis all have something in common. All three white men were killed by young black men. And all three IMO where revenge for Travon Martin also all three were hate crimes, just my opinion based on the conclusion I have reached after reading the facts in these cases. The story of David Santucci is disturbing because the police for some reason are attempting a cover up. Read about it at the link below.

    Don't hesitate to say what his political agenda might be. If you feel there is one, let's hear it.

    It applies to most and I've even venture to say majority or vast majority.

    The amount of poverty is greater in urban areas than rural. I'm pretty sure I already said that several times.

    Saying it and backing it up with facts are two different things. Chicago, Illinois is not poor compared to Radid City, South Dakota. I can show as much (if not more) of a correlation with minority residents as you can with poverty for their relationship to crime statistics.

    Chicago, Illinois (IL) profile: population, maps, real estate, averages, homes, statistics, relocation, travel, jobs, hospitals, schools, crime, moving, houses, news

    Rapid City, South Dakota (SD) profile: population, maps, real estate, averages, homes, statistics, relocation, travel, jobs, hospitals, schools, crime, moving, houses, news

    Oh so you think 43K in SD is the same as 43K in Illinois?

    I can tell you right now 43K in SD is about 90K in Illinois.

    It is sad that not every murder victim gets the attention he/she deserves, but with no human interest angle stories like this will never go big in the media.
    I think the Oprah story got the attention of the media because it fit into the agenda of black people are discriminated against. The funny thing about the story involving her is that when it was found out she lied about it when the store owner fought back with the truth, the media dropped the story...never condemning her for her lie....Im sorry, she is a Liberal...they never said anything about her "mis-remembering" the incident How many people are aware of that? The media certainly didnt inform the public of it.

    The problem with the media is if the story does not fit into their given agenda they try their best not to report on it.
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.
