He just wanted her cell phone. It was a race hate crime. Multiculturalism is a failure, and never meant to work.

And charged the family for the bullet.
Innocent until proved guilty. If a person is guilty, they are guilty. But I would rather be sure then to execute an innocent.

Thread revived! I haven't heard any updates for this story, been unable to find any from the talking heads in media. As the song goes, as soon as they come up with new "dirty laundry" even the important stories from yesterday's date from the spotlight, and thus from memory. I wonder what the truth is in the story, and if it will ever be actually discovered [let alone reported].

Typically from the time of the arrest to the time a case actually goes to trial is quite extensive. Sometimes a prosecuter or a defense attorney may find it to their advantage to get alot of attention from the press and will feed the journalists. if that isnt the case, then journalists aren't getting fed information and there is nothing to report until the case comes to trial.

I am sure when it comes to trial it will be in the news again. Maybe even on court TV.......

Well no we should not extradite, for one thing we don't get any oil from Italy! Unless you consider olive oil [which a Diesel engine will run on very nicely] but seriously, OMFG how I hope it never comes down to that decision. If I were her I'd buy a false identity or just disappear into the homeless population, before allowing myself to be sent back there. May be some wealthy benefactor somewhere could purchase the necessary judges in Italy to get it retried and overturned again and forever.

In light of so many violent acts being committed in schools, it is time for all kids to attend school online. Not sure how parents can deal with the supervision issue if both work, but it seems our civilization is not civilized enough to protect the health and safety of students or teachers.

It will probably be cheaper in the long run to provide each child a computer, internet access and online teachers than what we are spending in the current situation.
