Wow! I think the comment about "boy" being a racist comment was supposted to be satire.
I think most of these "comments" are suppose to be satire, doesn't make the comments any less racist, xenophobic or ignorant.

Another person is dead because of violence. My heart isn't hardened enough to not be sad about it regards of circumstance.

Clearly this reporter is RACIST! We are called African Americans - not "BOY". Boy this, boy that, I've had with ya'all.

IMHO.......
Sounds pretty straight forward to me!

As someone who lives in this neighborhood, I don't appreciate "Murderapolis" comments from those of you who don't even know what you're talking about. All major cities have some crime. It's part of living in a city. Just like being a pompous jerk and criticizing those who live in the city is part of living in certain suburbs.

I see "bad Diane" is back. The sad thing, is, your previous posts have made it pretty clear you're a fairly hateful person, one who I'm sad I share a name with.

Excellent! Make sure his allotment is deducted from his mothers welfare check right away. Just one of the many ways we can cut spending.
This is such a pathetic commentary on our community today. A boy died, and he was someone's son, probably someone's brother & friend. Yes, there's way too much violence in our society. Yes, people need to learn to be waaaaaay better parents. But a child died, a child who'll now have no chance to grow up and have a future, and that's still a really sad thing. Don't turn it into something even uglier with your comments about welfare.

I see St. Paul Diane is back. Yes, the one who ignores the evils of welfare.

Diane doesn't mind paying scum their free money for no work, but I do.

This is an article about a person being killed. It's not about welfare - doesn't say anything about the name of the victim, the family's status,the circumstances, or anything else. All we know is that a young person died. And that's sad.

Think whatever you want about the person/people who did it, and I will too once we know. But this isn't about them, it's about the victim. If feeling saddened because a young person is killed is a purely liberal thing, then I guess I wonder what has happened to all of the Christians on the right.

they are sitting at their computers in their anal leakage stained sweat pants, smacking on a greasy sammy and waiting for an opportunity to say something hateful. And then snicker. Right Sue?

Whole bunch of shootings over the weekend!! Must be in the stars. Anybody check to zodiac to see if Mars dominated? One of the shooters got off the bus, then came back on to shoot someone in the leg.

ROFL! It is mere coincidence that the shooters and victims live in North Minneapolis then. Upwards of 85 percent of all crime resides in the North side.

Time for some vigilante justice.

Thank God they only kill each other.

What happened to the good old days of gang warfare when they just used knives and chains??

I miss my childhood in New York.

Just because he used the word "BOY" you assume he is black? I'd question who the real racist is here. A "boy" is dead...don't matter the color!!!!!
If he was white they would have used the word "Child" or "Youth"

His future was probably a lot more grim than his death. think about it, if he was in that area and got shot to death, chances are his family wasnt too far from there and most ppl in the inner city live for crime... he probably woulda just grown up to be some gangster or thug and killed someone elses baby.
Sh*t happens.

No guns means no gun crimes. Just look at the examples - Washington DC, New York City, San Francisco. 0 guns= 0 gun crimes!

You are a complete and total idiot. Have you ever been to Lake and Portland? I doubt it! There are cops EVERYWHERE! Unfortunately, gangbangers don't care. Oh, and about the donut comment.....that is very old. Take a look at the average American and then take a look at the average cop. I think you would find that cops are in much better shape than the average American. So...statistically speaking, you are probably a bigger fat ass than most of the cops you like to rip on from behing your computer screen.
ATTENTION ATTENTION:YOUR A TOTAL MORON JOE..It's called speaking MY opinion...Quit slamming people(ME 420 DuDe) & stick to the article YOU FOOL!!!!!!!!!! Also I am an AVERAGE DuDe--NOT FAT -- YOU MIGHT BE....YES I'M RIGHT..LOL
