When fun pastimes like "The Knockout Game" and "The Fire Challenge" have replaced backlot baseball and b-ball pickup games - and they're getting all kinds of media attention - it should come as no surprise that mortal violence is creeping younger and younger.

Tragic.

This story breaks my heart. What have we become when 12 year olds walk up and randomly stab 9 year olds they don't know??? I don't understand......

Hmmmmmm
The 12 year old is black, the 9 year old victim was white.
Only the 12 year old's mother was in court today, baby's daddy nowhere to be found.

Kentwood..........A great place to raise a family! NOT!!!

It would be interesting to know what kind of drugs were in his system........ Wonder how the victim's family is holding up and if they are getting help from the community.......

Baby's daddy is probably dead or in prison. Kentwood is a perfect example of neighborhood transformation for the worse. Normally, the aggregate number of individuals in a common neighborhood makeup serve to retain a constant or even enhance the neighborhood in general. However, when you have ghetto-creep (and yes, that means black people) from other parts of the city area, you will find a progressively degrading, crime-ridden hole where there once stood a safe place to grow a family. Now, I know know I'll be labeled racist for saying what I'm about to say, but I don't care because it's the truth. Truth is, African Americans just can't live together in large numbers. I don't know whether it's some sort of jungle gene or some sort of inner fear or hatred they have for anybody....including themselves. In a lot of ways they're like Muslims, which would explain a great deal as to why so many drift towards that toxic religion..but I digress, the issue of following goat-loving pedophiles around has nothing to do with African American neighborhood transformation. Or does it? I don't know.

Unless and until people in this country begin to see people as human beings and not people of color, we will continue to have these issues. These were CHILDREN for heavens sake! And posts like this just perpetuate the issues. These type of posts do nothing but continue Obama's great desire to divide this country by race, income, and class. SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!

I feel bad for the career minded people that worked hard at school got a good job and advanced in their life only to buy a home in Kentwood or what we call "Rentwood". I left Kentwood in '88 after living there since '69. Moved out East for a few years and came back only to find that my old city was gone forever..... I was surprised by the number of people I graduated stayed to raise their families...... Between elderly people getting killed in their home and now this, I wonder if KPD has a reporting system so the residents can review what is happening in their neighborhood......

Agreed that labeling an ENTIRE race is racist but it's not racist to speak with data. Black people like to call people racists when they don't like hearing their own statistics. As for Kentwood, which I'm very familiar with, that area was doomed as soon as subsidized housing was put in place. True, there are some decent, hard working people who need subsidies to help support their families but the majority of those tenants don't have the self-respect and social values that the rest of us are raised on. And yes, the majority of those are indeed black. That's not being racist, that's being factual. If the general population doesn't like that, they need to look at the parents of these young people who are running wild. What if the table was turned and a white kid stabbed a little black boy?? Not only would the kids parents be exiled from the community, we'd have Jesse Jackson and that fat tub of shit Sharpton pounding their fists calling for more attention on racism...but not here. The black boy did it in this case...and Al will tell you he did it because whitey has disenfranchised him in some way.
We need to stop defaulting to calling people racists simply to avoid the hard facts that this race does have characteristics they've created thru their own actions. And until the honest, caring people of that race acknowledges that fact, they will continue to use racism as the excuse rather than themselves.
Let me clear up your misconception or misunderstanding of my response to Dr. X. I was NOT calling him a racist. That term has been so overused these past 6 years that no one pays any attention anymore. I was merely letting him know that concentrating entirely on the race of the CHILDREN in this case was out of bounds, at least for me. this is my take on it.....I don't personally give a hoot if 2 adults want to kill each other off as they obviously have no clue what having a life actually is. However, when children start doing this, to me it is an indicator of a really serious problem and that problem has less to do with race than it has with the moral compass of this country which is rapidly sinking into the sinkhole of progressive thought (I am not sure they think, by the way). Children are not taught respect for themselves and others, they are not taught manners, and they are not taught the English language instead of profanity which seems to substitute for English these days. Please note: I did not say any one race, I said ALL children. Once again, unless and until this country stops seeing people by skin color, religion, or sexual preferences, we will continue down this path of self destruction.

The good news is,..is that he 12 year old murderer will get out of jail when he is 21 years old!
The 9 year old child that he stabbed to death will not get that chance!
I think it is time to deal with these kid's that do these things appropriately.
You liberals on here just want sympathy for the 12 year old that stabbed a nine year old to death, but the you have NO sympathy for the victim.
In eight years from now, he can vote for Obama again!

But yet what I said is proven day after day, week after week, year after year. As uncomfortable for you as it is to hear, it is the truth. They have the democrats to thank for years of political slavery. All of what I said will continue until they break free from the chains that the commiecrats have shackled them in. The conservative movement must address the ghetto.

And continuing to blame only one side for the issues in this country will NOT improve things in this country. Unless and until we are ALL willing to come together and work as citizens of this country, nothing will change. Pointing fingers plays right into the hands of people like Obama, Reid, and Pelosi. Let's stop pointing fingers and start telling those who wish this country would fail that they will NOT win and start showing them why. And I believe we can enlist the talents of all citizens not just those some think are "smarter" than others.

How is this NOT a race crime?

If it was the other way around it would have been...

Aren't you people sick of filthy, brown parasites yet?
