Looks like we have a mexican here that has assaulted with attempt to kill one of our finest so to speak. 16 years old, driving drunk, wheres the green card? Is he legal or an illegal? Who provided the booze? They are supposed to be prosecuted to according to North Carolina state laws. Lets bring them in too. Sounds like the perfect time to do some deporting to me.

Let's not forget the sixteen year olds parents-where were they??? What about the owner of the car? If he has a green card, this sounds like a good reason to revoke it to me. I mean if they can't abide by the laws they need to go back home, plain and simple!!

My thoughts and prayers are with R G and Val and their two children!!

My prayers are with the Butler family. I sincerely hope justice is served and the adults responsible are included in the process.
However, I cannot find any thing in the paper that said this 16-year-old is Mexican and has a green card. I hope I just missed that fact and am not reading the opinions of who people who jumped to conclusions by just a name.

Hispanic? Quite possibly. Mexican? You have no proof. You know absolutely nothing about his citizenship and I am appalled at the judgment without facts. It's almost like you work for the media.

Moron? Stupid? Because I am aware there are other people in the world that are Hispanic with the name Jose that do not come from Mexico.
You want me to shut up? What kind of Communist are you? I love my free speech and my freedom of religion. I am used to persecution though - being a Christian has its trails. My the Lord bless you all and have forgiveness on your souls full of hate.

MTNLIFER ITS LIKE THIS MY DADDY WAS KILLED WHEN I WAS 15 DOING UNDERCOVER WORK AS A NARCOTICS OFFICER GETTING READY TO MAKE A MULTIMILLON DOLLAR DRUG BUST HERE IN WNC. I DID NOT FIND OUT ABOUT THIS UNTIL 20 YEARS LATER BECAUSE IT WAS WRITTEN UP IN THE PAPERS AS A CAR WRECK. WE KNEW WHO DID IT BUT BECAUSE OF ONE LITTLE LAW WHERE THE WIFE CANNOT BE FORCED TO TESTIFY AGAINST HER HUSBAND SAVED THE MAN. ALMOST 25 YEARS LATER I GOT TO PHONE THIS WIFE AND ASK HER HOW IT FELT TO LOSE HER HUSBAND TO A BULLET.
The ultimate vengeance will be God's to bestow, for it is written in the book of Romans, chapter twelve, verse nineteen, "...Vengeance is mine," sayeth the Lord.
AS HANNIBAL SAYS...I LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER.........THIS LITTLE MEXICAN WILL GET AS GOOD AS HE GAVE.

I in no way advocate this punk getting away with this. I don't want you to think this. Whoever supplied him with alcohol should be punished as well as the parents who should have been in control. As far as I am concerned, his actions were attempted murder.

My beef is assuming he is Mexican and here illegally without knowing the facts. I have friends and neighbors who are here legally and are working hard to see the American dream and I support that. Not everyone with tan skin is illegal or Mexican. Please keep this in mind.

The fact is he broke the law and he caused great injury to a fine man, and he and others need to pay the price.

etsidoyehi - my heart is sick for you and I truly hope all works out the way it should.

Mexicans are an uncivilized tribe of people. America should nuke Mexico.

I will agree with that but around here many of the young "tan skinned" men are Mexican and illegal.

I can not believe you people. MTNLIFER has a very valid point. You just can't assume. I can see where you all are coming from on his appearance. Yes, he does look Hispanic, but not necessarily Mexican. Also, where do you see in the photograph AT ALL where it is SO obvious that he is an illegal immigrant? If you find it, I would love to see it. Because if you can tell someone is a scoundrel by just a picture, not even the full representation of the character of a person, just imagine what people think of you all.

Seriously people, I'm not completely "Let's-let-people-off-bec ause-they-diversify-our-nation ". I believe in equality and respect. Everyone should get the same degree of punishment that fits the crime. In this case, it was manslaughter and underage drinking. He should get a penalty as if he were human, not a race.
But respect just the same. I mean, yes, we don't agree with his actions. I don't think anyone does. But that doesn't mean we can make cruel assumptions based on his heritage.

It is obviously important that we have a little background on this kid. The media has a history of not filling in the blanks and that leaves a huge cloud of suspicion.

ACT, inquiring minds want to know. Who is this kid?
Your failing to fill in the blanks only encourages people to think the worst. Is he an illegal? Is he the offspring off an illegal. Oh hell is he an immigrant of any source?

I can't believe people are so ignorant. Yes, a different race is intimidating; sure they may do things wrong. I mean, everyone does. Look at you jerks saying we should nuke Mexico. But just because you think they are inferior doesn't mean you need to pass judgment. If people passed judgment just because of an interpretation others (i.e. the media in this case) gave, you would be screwed. Because frankly, your words and attitudes say nothing about you.

Wow. Look who's talking. You people who make assumptions without any facts and go around calling other people stupid make me sick. You don't say things like that on a public website. Even if you did, you'd think that if you wanted your opinion to count you would write something more eloquent than "shut the frig up."

Who cares if he's brown, black, white, purple, or green. What he did was terrible and he deserves to pay the highest price no matter who he is, or where he's from. He's fixin to get some American justice on that ass.

I'm pretty sure we all know it's a public website. It's appalling and unfortunately true that people like you can smear names on the wall.
And your explanation for the name origin of Jose, it is a SPANISH variant of Joseph. Not just Mexican. They speak the SPANISH language, where words and names are all derived. And now we are just arguing ridiculous things.

[QUOTE who=<Bekah said>"] It's appalling and unfortunately true that people like you can smear names on the wall.[/QUOTE]

As I recall the last time they caught the people that were vandalizing the stores out on Hendersonville Hwy and out towards Hendersonville, they were a group of Mexicans.I daresay you yourself are mexican to be so defensive of them.I used to not feel the way I do then I came to realize that they are why MY medical bills are so high.MY personal physician has to take so many medicaid patients a year but thank GOD there is NOTHING written in the contract that says they have to speak any other language than ENGLISH.When I was going thru another Drs care was when I had the problems as they took any kind of patient.Numerous times I ended up misdiagnosed.Partly because the Drs didnt speak full English. Of course I immediately switched physicians.
