It is a crying shame that some individuals feel the need to jump an elderly person, its obvious they don't have the balls to jump someone their on age. I hope the elderly victim will recover mentally and physically, and I hope they get whats coming to them in jail.

But the reality of the matter is that these criminals will just be put back on the streets to attack some other poor victim... They will get a slap on the wrist and be let loose into society to find another defenseless victim... what is this world coming to?

We hear stories like this too often. A whole generation has been lost to drugs and violence. A 13 year strong armed robber, 17 year old murderer from Conway, 16 year old crack dealers, and on and on. All over America this is happening and it is scary. Good thing the Supreme Court let us keep our guns it looks like we need them to protect ourselves.

You are probably right! It's sad to know that a 13 yr old had a part in the robbery of an elderly person. Where was this kids parents?

What do you expect from a group whose culture glorifies violence, murder, drug usage/dealing, assaults, rape, stealing, no self respect or respect for the others including the community etc? Maybe instead of crying about how bad they have it, while sponging off the government and taxpayer dollars, they could get jobs. That way they don’t need to assault 75 year old women. COWARDS! The NAACP should focus on the incarceration rates of blacks, the unemployment rates among blacks, the dropout rate among blacks, the dozens of kids blacks have with no fathers. Stop blaming the white man for everything, after all, we pay taxes and support you. How do you think you get housing assistance, food stamps, unemployment checks and everything else?

Where do it says they were black?. You have blacks paying taxes and supporting them also. Remember, your tax and my tax take care of as many whites as black and the elder people. The NAACP, is not the blame for everything.

I do hope that the lady that was attached is doing well. What do we expect from the children and teens today. At a teen I was in the fields working not in the streets makeing trouble. Then look at what children have to watch on TV today.

These criminals are black, but that does not mean that only black people commit crimes. Dont post racial comments when it had nothing to do with race. All races commit crimes at the same level.

How do we know they are Black? Are you for real? All you have to do is watch the news! We stated keeping a counting of the crimes commented and who they were commented by. Most of the serious crimes have been commented by black males between the ages of 17 to 26. They are high school drop outs and unemployed. They sleep during the day, and wander around at night.

We made it to easy for them to be on welfare, food stamps, and medicaid. I think if we had the laws and stiffer punishments enforced, it would make these young people take notice.

If the law would start capital punishment back full force for anyone who comments serious crimes and make the inmates work instead of playing ball all day it might make it not be so fun for them in jail.

Actually I find the wording of your article insulting. You said “Two men and a 13 year old boy”. What you should have said was “Two lowlifes and a 13 year old boy” or at the very least “Two thugs and a 13 year old boy. “Two men” is a bad choice of words. Men serve their country or take care of their family or go to work. Real men do not attack 75 year old woman.

I agree with what you said, but most criminals are stupid and don't think they'll be caught, so they don't think about punishment. South Carolina fried one in the electric chair June 20, but these thugs probably don't read newspapers or watch the news on television so they probably don't even know about it. One thing is sure, he won't kill anyone else, and sooner or later, one of them might learn first-hand that the death penalty is alive and well in South Carolina.

More whites than blacks are on public assistance; please educate yourself before making remarks that make you look dumb.

If anybody has any dount at all about who is commiting the crimes, here is a statistic for you; At midyear 2007 there were 4,618 black male sentenced prisoners per 100,000 black males in the United States, compared to 1,747 Hispanic male sentenced prisoners per 100,000 Hispanic males and 773 white male sentenced prisoners per 100,000 white males.
All this is fact as reported by the dept. Of Justice. Check for yourself, and then tell me whos to blame!
