    I don't give a flying **** what race these savages were. There is a definite problem in this country and failure to acknowledge it and address it will only cause it to continue. If this was a pack of rich white kids I would hold them in the same contempt I hold this pack of savage monsters. If my kids every got involved in **** like this, they would be grounded until they were of legal age to leave.
    I'll just say that if my son was involved in something like this, ummm ... let's just say he would be lucky if he wasn't "manhandled".

    Every form of crime decreasing. You want to prove that mob violence is bucking the trend? Provide evidence.

    Memphis is bad. If you had ever spent any time there you would know it would be hard to inflate the crime rate there. While most cities have gotten a lot safer over the years, Memphis hasn't. I would just assume you dropped me off in the middle of Syria than to have to walk down Danny Thomas through Hurt Village on a weekend night.

    It's (insert alphabet news network here) ... ratings equal viewers, viewers equal $.

    Why else would FNC be interviewing Ward Churchill right now? He's irrelevant. But, he makes people mad, and mad equals viewers.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Just to be clear. An animal isn't referred to as feral, unless it (or its origins) were once domesticated.
    Thinking you might wish to broaden your definition awareness, I posted as a favor.

    I frequent areas where I am not the top of the food chain... the animal population in it's entirety is referred to as 'feral' (especially bear and lion).

    Personally, I don't give a tinkersdamn... you are correct... I and the dictionary are wrong...

    Celebrate perfection... it's a worthy (albeit impossible) goal

    False. Feral only refers to individuals of previously domesticated species.

    Try reading the whole definition, all of them, and understanding the concept. Instead of reading 2 but not 2a. Typical racist idiocy, "but part of the dictionary definition!"

    Learn or not, your problem.
