I'm very aware of what the statistics that still doesn't give anyone the right to treat someone differently because of race. Yes, there are morons in each and every race I don't care who you are but do not by any means put anyone in with the idiots

Pathetic? What is pathetic is that two races of people can be so utterly disproportionately violent in comparison to the rest of society. Your darn right we need to point the finger at them... at least it's not a gun.

Wow racist people still exist aren't we in the 20th century get over yourselves. Unless you know every person of the race you are hating to make an accurate decision to hate the entire race then keep it focus on the people who screwed you over not the people attached to the race. It's not fair.
It's the 21st century, brainiac!

LOL THIS IS A WHITE COUNTRY GET OUT ALL THE INDIANS, SPANISH, AFRICANS ETC
THEY ARE RUINING OUR COUNTRY.
Considering the white country threw out all the indians. Maybe you would like to repost and say it is an Indian country and you stole their land. Oh I am sorry you obviously don't remember ANY history. Get a clue the day this is a white country I will leave. It is a country where all are men are fighting for no matter who is in it. I think those countries where my brother is fight do not care what race we are. Are you an American? Yes. Bang they hate us all. Get a clue.

It is fair, it's human nature to attach anger to an entire race when that specific race(s) commits violent (PEOPLE DYING!!) crimes over and over again at such a grossly disproportionate level. We are scared, my son walked in from school last year about 10 minutes before two latino boys were shot at and one hit half a block from my front door. This is in broad daylight with children everywhere. Then my two sons got mugged a few weeks later (6 black boys) coming home from school. I don't feel safe walking in my neighborhood. We yanked our boys out of school last year and home school, the schools are just as violent. They are armed to the hilt going into the schools and don't think they are not. My spouse has been a teacher at the high school for 10 years. Last week he walked out to tell three guys standing in the hallway being way too loud to be quiet and one of them walked up to him and flashed his gang sign and told my husband "get the f***k out of here you little b*tch." This is what your typical teacher deals with every day. God help them.

Really now? Were you there analyzing the bullets and determining which gun they were fired from? Were you standing there? Do you have any idea how this actually went down? Or do you just spend your time on here makig things up? And rent money come on now. Again since when did not paying your rent constitute being shot for any reason?

you all contribute to the problems facing all of us. sit there behind your computer and throw slurs, but guarantee if there was a Spanish or black person in front of you, you wouldn't say a thing! cowards. just as the people who run around with guns. cowards. I ask what makes you better than the shooter? better than the rent evading victim? nothing. your just as cowardly as them. its no wonder the youth of our country act as they do, look at how the "adults" act. you should be proud of yourselves... for being part of the problem and contributing to an already disappointing society. as long as these stereotypes exist, they will continue to be acted out.

The one that was shot was hispanic the one doing the shooting was black. Not everything you here on the scanner is correct. NO children were involved at all.

As a matter a fact I was there. I do know every detail of the situation. There was only one gun fired in that spot. The other gun was fired outside up the street. And I am not saying that he should have gotten shot for it. But when you hang out with shady people and you have a bad temper and you carry a gun yourself things are gonna get out of control. The belief is you make your own destiny. And he made his last night.
