All of the chatter is such BS. His Facebook shows he's a liberal so it's this. Or it's over a parking space so it's that. No, it had to be hate. No, no it's mental illness. I'm just going to say there's a lot more mental illness around here than his, if this is all people are coming up with to try to rationalize this in their heads and not see the irony all over it. Of course it's mental illness, whoever does it. What the hell kind of any human does this to other human beings? And what the hell kind of humans are we that the first conclusions we leap to are...well...what we're seeing here. People who have gone over the edge. A lot of people, and not just the ones doing the killing either. Ugh.

Yep... Exactly the same.

Well if history has given us any indication, we'll probably see the atheists in here saying something like "Not all atheists", and the religious in here saying something like "Can't trust atheists". Then it'll all get dirty as the political/ideological mudslinging starts and people will lose sight of the threads original purpose.

Oh so true.

We'll hear all the reasons in the world... Bar one...

& let's be completely honest...

We all know what does cause this sort of thing...


Media fearmongering...

Let's see if that is one of the options any of the talking heads discuss.

Wasn't Obama talking about that yesterday as well...


This must be Obama's fault.

Is this story running front line in the MSM?

I can't help but think if it was a Muslim killing Christians, the story would be pushed really hard.


Or a Christian killing Muslims.

Killed in their home...


Over a parking space...


Certainly plausible.





Lord forgive me but I'm filling up with more and more hatred by the day.

Has anyone claimed "Video Games" yet as the reason??? If not, then I'd like to do that now.

Bob, can I have "Video Games" for $100 Please???

My second choice if someone else already picked "Video Games" is going to be either "Floride in the water" or "Manchurian Mind Control".

Just kidding. Don't let the hate consume you. I admit to feeling pangs of hatred over all the extremism happening in the world, and some of the hate threatened to spill out onto more moderate muslims such as yourself. After some self-reflection I slowly drew myself out of that spiral. If anything, look to your religious texts for guidance.

Yep. And the very first thing that popped into my head was the story about the call to prayer at Duke too, where that Graham lunatic and the press he got probably had the whole region riled up.


“As Christianity is being excluded from the public square and followers of Islam are raping, butchering, and beheading Christians, Jews, and anyone who doesn’t submit to their Sharia Islamic law, Duke is promoting this in the name of religious pluralism,” Graham wrote.

The post has been shared more than 65,000 times. This isn't the first time Graham has spoken out against Islam. According to The Charlotte Observer, the pastor has been been criticizing the religion since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.


Yeah...this kind of thing doesn't get into peoples' heads. Never happen.

It kind of reminds me of the Westboro folks that everyone makes a big stink about. Yes they are annoying and loud but many seem to think they somehow represent a majority of something. The truth about that group is they are made up of something like 85 people and the vast majority of them are related.
I suspect if this facebook page continues will will likely be the same sort of thing.

& it's definitely not over a parking space.


According to wife and neighbours, they "never seen him show animosity along religious lines".


The killings occurred in a condominium complex in a wooded area filled with two-story buildings. Neighbors said parking spaces were often a point of contention.

"I have seen and heard (Hicks) be very unfriendly to a lot of people in this community," said Samantha Maness, 25, a community college student. But she said she had never seen him show animosity along religious lines.

On Facebook, Hicks' profile picture reads "Atheists for Equality" and he frequently posted quotes critical of religion. On Jan. 20 he posted a photo of a .38-caliber revolver that he said was loaded and belonged to him.

Hicks's wife Karen Hicks told reporters at a news conference that her husband had been locked in a longstanding dispute over parking and the killings had nothing to do with religion. She said Hicks was not hateful and believed "everyone is equal."

Barakat's family urged the shooting be investigated as a hate crime and said the three were killed with shots to the head.

"Today, we are crying tears of unimaginable pain over the execution-style murders," Barakat's older sister Suzanne told reporters. She said her brother was light-hearted and loved basketball.

The incident appeared to be isolated and not part of a targeted campaign against North Carolina Muslims, Ripley Rand, U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of North Carolina, told a news conference with local police officials.

Imam Abdullah Antepli, Chief Representative of Muslim Affairs at Duke University, told the news conference it may or may not have been a hate crime and called for an easing of tensions.

Neighbors described Hicks as an angry, hulking figure who exploded in rage over parking spaces and noise.

”He was very disgruntled, very aggressive. He would scream at people,’’ said Samantha Maness, 25, a technical college student who lives across a parking lot from the apartments of Hicks and two of the three slain students in a housing complex of winding streets and towering loblolly pines a few miles from the University of North Carolina campus.

“He made everyone feel uncomfortable and unsafe,’’ Maness said Wednesday, speaking outside Hick’s upstairs apartment, which backs up to an adjoining apartment where two of the shooting victims lived. Flowers had been left on the lawn in front of the building.

Residents of Finley Forest apartments in Chapel Hill had been so alarmed by Hicks’ rants that they called a community meeting last year, Maness said. Residents shared stories about being confronted by Hicks, but no one mentioned the meeting to Hicks and nothing came of it, she said.

Maness said she never heard Hicks refer to anyone’s religion or race.

“He had equal opportunity anger toward all the residents," she said.

I feel you're fanning media flames for your own ideological purposes.

Lighthearted is not the first thought that comes to mind when someone starts killing folks. LOL

Wife says he was nice. Neighbors say he was mean. What's the wife going to say? He's turned himself in and there will be a trial, so she's certainly not going to bare his real soul to the world, if she even knows it.

Killing over a parking space might even be worse than killing over religion or similar differences. No, scratch that. Killing for any reason other than defense is, again, just plain crazy. And we might be even crazier for even attempting to figure out what triggers people because in the end, FBI profilers excepted, we probably won't ever know.

@NetworkDude...

Parking space lol.


Sure...


Sorry to offend you, but I was reporting what just aired on local TV here. I am not claiming anything or taking any position here other than this was senseless and terribly sad. There is a lot of pressure from the family of the two girls to investigate this as a hate crime. I am not sure what that will do other than fan the flames, but whatever happens will happen.
