  • George

    I’ll bet the idiot shooter is black.

  • swizzle

    I’ll bet George is a Republican, everyone knows Republicans cannot comment upon a story without inserting thier racist viewpoints.
    Not all Republicans are racist, but all racists are Republcians

    • Jim

      You’re full of sh!t swizzle. This has nothing to do with politics.

  • Sally

    I’m with George, most of the killing in this city is the work of blacks. Too bad, they give the race a bad name, but it is what it is.

  • swizzle

    Hardly Jim. I’m only pointing out the truth and you know it. George is a Republican, and like all Republicans he’s a racist.
    He has no evidence that the person who did this is black, and we both know it. He’s just a narrow minded racist Republican and if you can prove me wrong take your best shot.
    Sally is another fine example of your average Teabagging filth.

    • nathan

      Like all republicans he is a racist!!!!!!!!! What a stereotype and congrads on profiling people. So are black and hispanic republicans racist too?? And if so against whom.

  • Tyton

    Cops should do this lot more often… That is the only way to clean up south side…

  • Mary mitchell

    What is wrong with these parents ! Teaching their kids to kill and rob !
    And our politicians : spending time on the death penalty , then marijhiana reform,
    then gay rights !! ( gays should not receive any government assistance ! )
    We need the FBI and national guard to sweep the city !
    Jesse Jackson has never done anything positive for the black community !
    ( what the hay was he doing in wisconsin ? we need him to fight the gangs ! )
    And Mary Mitchell ! , etc !!! They prey upon the weak !!!!
    Is the black community so stupid not to realize this ? I hope not !!!

    Heres a Mary Mitchell response :
    Hi , Im Mary Mitchell !
    This Police crackdown on men of color will have an
    adverse effect on our culture !
    Our culture is based upon receiving free stuff from the
    Government ! Police enforcement of drug crimes,
    robbery , burgleries and murders will cause our
    young men of color to have to study hard in school
    and get good grades and work at McDonalds and
    learn to make a living the honest way !
    ( the way white youths do ! )
    This must stop ! Jesse and I will help get our
    Color society back to a freeloading
    Taxpayer based economy
    of which we are accustomed to !
    Im a crazy crack ho bee atch !
    Why don’t they crack down on the St.Pattys gang !
    Irish gang , they all wear green , have a shamrock tattoo on check !
    The ring leader goes by “ Lord of the dance “

    Why censor my opinion ?
    Just go to another site ! Dum people !
    Am I saying anything that isn’t true ? Tell me !!

  • swizzle

    @nathan, even during the civil war blacks fought for the south, it shouldn’t be a shock to see blacks still supporting racist estabilishments like the GOP and the Tea Party Movement also.
    You’ll even see Gays supporting the GOP, but you must remember these poor deluded individuals fail to realize the party of ‘no’ will take their votes and do everything they can to punish them for being either black or gay.
    Both the KKK and the Aryan Nations run Tea Party Groups, the leader of ‘Stromfront’ runs a Tea Party Group, to claim that the GOP doesn’t profit off hate groups would be a lie.
