I think that this was a racial issue and the policeman that was injured in the fire also is known for harrasing blacks in the community and I also beleive that most officals take their job to serious.

B.S. this was a Crime issue, a Drug issue, a concealed weapon, gun carrying attempted murder issue
Policeman was not injured" he did'nt fall down and skin his knee.
He was shot and has sustained life threatening wounds by a fleeing career criminal resisting arrest who was already on probation for felony charges.
I hope they give the criminal a swift and fair trial and a one way ticket to death row.
However there are a few thousand people up in Jena right now playinga race card I'm sure you can interest them in this one to.

if it was a black man it was racial. you know they can do no wrong. just look at the city of new orleans where the people of color roam in peaceful co-existance with one another. No crime to speak of except all those white officers trying to railroad and make up charges. Ask any mother in new orleans whose son is a murder suspect and she'll tell you "he dint do nothin,he a good boy."

If you think I am being racial, so be it. But what that boy needs and should have had, was his @#$ beat until he begged for mercy when he was younger. I know a good child can get in lots of trouble when they get older. My point is.. He has been in so much trouble before, why is he still out causing more trouble. Keep his !@$ behind bars and things like this wouldn't be going on. I say lock him up or tie the no count to a tree and let the buzzards eat him!!!

This is pretty amazing when someone gets shot protecting the community that he SWORE to protect and all you can find to b!tch about is race. That was so 400 hundred years ago... when are you going to grow up?
That projectile (a.k.a. bullet) which came out of that weapon in which was in the black man's hand wasn't fired by "WHITEY"! So where is the race issue there? I'll tell you point blank... aim a weapon at me ya better leave me dead... no 911 tape, witness or anything else in this world would've kept me from smoking his a$$! BLACK OR WHITE! Shoot at me, prepare to catch lead!
Officer James... you did your thing man and I appreciate it! I wish I was there for you in your time of need. Stay strong and keep your head on a swivel... don't get discouraged by the un-intelligent ones who would like to believe that this issue is due to "race". Little do they know us Law Enforcemt are the minority but we aren't going away!

probley the reason that you think the police profile the blacks is because white people don't stand on the corners selling drugs in the middle of the day or night. if you don' believe me go look for yourself and tell me how many white's you see standing on the corner's...... blacks present themselves as easy target's......in white neighbor hoods you dont here them yelling popo and see all kinds of signs to let others know your in the area ...its the way blacks act that brings all the heat down on them dont get me wrong theres white ppl that are trash too but you just dont see them on the street as much as you do blacks .

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT "NIGALOOS" TO DO? THEY CANT DRIVE TO A JOB. THEY CANNOT WORK ANY JOB THAT REQUIRES THOUGHT. IF THEY DEAL DRUGS THEIR SUPPLIER TELLS THEM HOW MUCH THEY OWE, NO MATH THERE.

NIGALOOS HAVE NO LANGUAGE SKILL,NO MATH SKILLS AND NO SCIENCE SKILLS. WAKE UP WHITE PEOLPLE.

Wow... such ignorance. I'm ashamed to say that I have Southern blood running through my veins. At least I'm smart enough to stay away from the bigots.

Well, you should have know that it was going to become a racial issue..Isn't that the way the blacks always put it out to be...But they are never racist towards whites now are they? To bad Harry Lee isn't around for this one huh? I think Craig James did an excellent job and i think the guy should get his a$$ handed to him and go straight to death row...But have a slow painful death..That's the way it should go..And for all the family of the shooter...well all i can say is "HE WOULD NOT BE IN THE CELL HE IS IN NOW IF HE WOULDN'T HAVE SHOT A DEPUTY BLACK OR WHITE ONE..." So if you ask me he deserves what he gets..He is lucky that's just the beginning of what is left to come...Good Job Craig..Hope You Are Doing Better...

This is to Hodge, why would you say such a stupid thing like you did (blacks are not human) well exaclty how would you rate whites. The whole jail system is very much corrupt, anytime you can count on one hand how many blacks are actually working on the force, you guess it right, the whites win. It such a sad situation when you have to raise kids in this type of country where there is still racism. This bad thing that has happen to this guy that shot the deputy, I'm quite sure Washington Parish is headed in the direction of Jena 6.

No matter what a person has done he's still someone child. His parents still love him and for all the unkind words that are being said. We too have children and none are exempt from trouble. That still gives no one the right to abuse anyone no matter what the race. I tell you what though as long as there is a God eveyone will have there day. Just wait a little while it's coming. God has the last say in this world.

I am so tired of all u blacks playing the race card, ya'll are the first to say that whites are raciest and are all against u, but ya'll have NO room to talk. Every chance u get you use it to ur advantage and get away with it, and i'm tired of it. I think it's time for all the whites to rally together and stop all these stupid Nigs form getting what they want by scaring people. I wish someone would call the KKK in to handel all this, not hurt them just show that he deserves what he gets and their is nothing they can do to get him out. I hope the courts stand firm and let his a$$ rot in jail!

You can't get rid of racism once and for all when u have stupid people that only want to bring the topic up every time u turn around. You people are the reason the racism will NEVER go away. So do us all a favor and go back were u came from!
