The last resort for the perps is to confess. It will be over soon.

all crime against people of any race is a hate crime.if the person is a home-owner and pays a mortgage and not bought for by the government, they have a right to live in peace and safety.

No one deserves to be treated that way, Homeowner or not. This is what i mean by what happens when the far right gets going. This is the kind of thing that happens.

In all fairness, extreme liberalism has its faults too. I have heard of incidents when the the far leftists have also resorted to violence and destruction. It is never an acceptable method to employ. This is very sad. Very sad indeed.

50 year resident, you sir brought politics into it by assuming that people who aren't homeowners aren't guaranteed equal protection. Your post has the word 'government' in it, and government is made up of politics. What sir, is wrong with you?

50 year, i thought we moved on past life liberty and property, i thought that we moved past property requirnments to vote...
im with Joe, the fact that they are a homeowner is irrelevant, it is disrespectful to cause damage to someone's personal property, especially when it is done based on a racial issue

It is wrong to damage anyone's property. The people responsible apparently had no kind of parental oversite while growing up.

It's no wonder nothing can ever be accomplished in these posts. They seem to really being the hate mongers out of the wood work. Everything with you people goes back to race issues. It's like you're obsessed with it. What year is it? Ask yourselves, do you want to better the community or not? You're not going to do it by hating people.
