    Yes, and that's a good thing...I also noticed that this wasn't specifically an attack on white people either. That this group of teens just swarmed and attacked anyone in their way if frightening in an anarchy kind of way....
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    It is only a matter of time now that another group of teens will duplicate this. It must have been orchestrated like the so call Flash Mobs have been done before.

    Don't know how shopping centers can deal with this. Shopping centers already facing financial woes would need to have a real security presence and not the guy with the beer belly strolling through the corridors.

    The idiot kicking the guy laying on the ground needs a barbed wire enema. I mean really, feeling like a tough guy kicking someone already down?

    I beg to differ. If i had done such a thing, my mother would have come, grabbed me by the ears and paddled me all the way to the big house herself.
    Perhaps not "demanding", but suggesting the parents at least speak out? They do speak out when they perceive their offspring is wronged, yes? They raised their kids, or at least they are supposed to instill into them a sense of right and wrong. Speaking out again such acts of violence is taking responsibility, acknowledging that what has happened must, and does, have consequences.
    Those who come out in droves to judge before knowing all the facts and supposedly know what is right and wrong, let them come out now and speak up. That would be the most loving thing to do, not just for these guys, but all those who ever think of doing such a thing.
    Lets hold these kids responsible for their actions, just as we hold the police responsible for their action.
    What must people do to bring attention to this senseless violence? Loot and protest?
    Bless those who were trying to do the right thing, to help, but let those who joined in, enjoyed and profited from such atrocity, be held accountable.

    That and his main attacker was bi-sexual himself. He was well known at Boulder's dive gay bar as being a "macho cowboy" type who, when he had access to a steady supply of drugs, would drive from Cheyenne to Boulder and exchange drugs for sex favors with gay patrons.

    Of course, to CNN type media, the gay hate crime story was alot sexier than the reality.

    Usage and intent matters. The term feral has been and is still used to describe the black race as a lower and lesser evolved life form. The term simply does not carry the same stigma and meaning when applied otherwise.

    and in fact, would probably call them even worse since they are white.
    And here you are complaining about other people's victim complexes..

    It sounds fine to me. Some people accuse people with low wages of being stupid, uneducated, good for nothing, underacheivers, a burden to society, lazy, a disappointment to their family or millions of other insults. There is no dignity in working for a low wage. People talk about bad about you whether you work for a low wage or whether you don't work at all. The smarter person doesn't work at all. The non-working individual can avoid the harassment of all the godlike people that made $50,000 a year at their first job.

    I don't have a problem with people working for low wages. Not everybody views low wages workers the same. If you are going to be treated like crap no matter what, it's better to have an extra 40 hours to yourself.
