I have no quarrel with you Wrabbit, other than your choice to mention a black man being lynched "back then". There was no need to dig that skeleton out of the closet, it had nothing to do with the story we're commenting on.
Let's drop this hate crime BS. You think a beating/murder victim feels better if they were attacked over the 20 bucks in their pocket instead of their skin colour? You think think their family feels better, oh well at least he/she was attacked for money, it's not as bad? A violent crime is a violent crime, and the reason shouldn't really matter.

Hate Crimes.. yeah right not with black attackers and white victims. Show ONE link of a case
Wow, you seriously had to bring up that whole "let's lynch/rape/dehumanize the black folks" era, huh? As a black woman, I'm offended...but I'll get over it, I hope you get over it as well.
The updated story is that the five suspects are also soldiers and that the stabbing was NOT racially motivated, but that after all the men had discovered they were active duty began to walk away. One of the soldiers then went over and gave what looked like a bear hug to the victim, and when he returned to the car he had blood all over him. Three of the five were just caught when the perpetrator asked for first aid help from another soldier. Insane...soldiers killing soldiers. What a tragedy.edit on 7-10-2013 by Piper96 because: (no reason given)
