The kids name is Mercedes Ayers & Her sister Emily Ayers. They're DUMB ASS WANNABES influenced by the streets of Cape Girardeau especially in front of B&H.

Blacks sure dislike when the hate crime works against them vs. for them.

This jig

The 17-year-old suspect in the July 24 beating of a Cape Girardeau woman will be prosecuted as an adult, a judge ruled Tuesday, and officials wasted no time filing charges that included "hate crime" language because the victim is gay.

In a hearing that lasted less than 10 minutes, Judge Scott Lipke transferred the suspect, Mercedes M. Ayers, from the juvenile system to the adult courts. Ayers, already in ankle shackles, was then taken into custody and transferred to the Cape Girardeau County Jail.

I THINK IT IS SO SAD THAT PARENTS DON'T TAKE CARE OF THEIR KIDS ANYMORE. THEY LET THEM RUN THE STREETS AND DO WHAT THEY WANT AS LONG AS THE STAY OUT OF THE PARENTS WAY, THAT WAY THE PARENTS CAN DO THEIR DRUGS AND WHATEVER. I FEEL SORRY FOR THE LADY THAT GOT HURT, BUT I ALSO FEEL FOR THE 17 YEAR OLD WHO HASN'T BEEN RAISED ANY BETER.

At 17 years old, she should know from right and wrong. She's old enough to make her own decision.

At 17 years old, her parents should have beat the sh1t out of her for even thinking about something like this. But, you're right: she should know better. I hope she enjoys jail.

I agree. Also, if history was different & whites were sold as slaves, whites would riot in the streets over this. However, white people don't care for each other like that.

You seem to ignore the fact that many white people were brought to the Americas as indentured servents. They were in effect slaves for a set period of time.
