Toddler shot and killed by (BLACK) teens during Georgia robbery, authorities say
...The Georgia mother was grieving from Thursday's shooting death of her 13-month-old son in his stroller during an attempted robbery while they took a morning stroll.
A pair of (BLACK) teenagers was arrested Friday. West had just been to the post office a few blocks from her apartment Thursday morning and was pushing her son, Antonio, in his stroller while they walked past gnarled oak trees and blooming azaleas in the coastal city of Brunswick.
West said a tall, skinny (BLACK) teenager, accompanied by a smaller (BLACK) boy, asked her for money.
"He asked me for money and I said I didn't have it," she told The Associated Press Friday from her apartment, which was scattered with her son's toys and movies.
"When you have a baby, you spend all your money on babies. They're expensive. And he kept asking and I just said 'I don't have it.' And he said,'Do you want me to kill your baby?' And I said,'No, don't kill my baby!'"
One of the teens fired four shots, grazing West's ear and striking her in the leg, BEFORE HE WALKED AROUND TO THE STROLLER AND SHOT THE BABY IN THE FACE.
Seventeen-year-old De'Marquis Elkins is charged as an adult with first-degree murder, along with a 14-year-old who was not identified because he is a juvenile, Police Chief Tobe Green said. It wasn't immediately clear whether the boys had attorneys.
Police announced the arrest Friday afternoon after combing school records and canvassing neighborhoods searching for the pair. The chief said the motive of the "horrendous act" was still under investigation and the weapon had not been found.
"I feel glad that justice will be served," West said. "It's not something I'm going to live with very well. I'm just glad they caught him."
West said detectives showed her mugshots of about 24 young men. She pointed to one, saying he looked like the gunman.
"After I picked him, they said they had him in custody," West said. "It looked just like him. So I think we got our man."
West said she thought the other suspect looked much younger: "That little boy did not look 14."
The slaying happened around the corner from West's apartment in the city's Old Town historic district. It's a street lined with grand Victorian homes from the late 1800s. Most have been neatly restored by their owners. Others, with faded and flaking paint, have been divided into rental units like the apartment West shared with her son. The slain boy's father, Luis Santiago, lives in a house across the street.
Santiago came and went. At one point he scooped up an armload of his son's stuffed animals, saying he wanted to take them home with him. He talked about Antonio's first birthday on Feb. 5 and how they had tried different party hats on the boy.
"He's all right," Santiago told the boy's mother, trying to smile. "He's potty training upstairs in heaven."
West said her son was walking well on his own and eight of his teeth had come in. But she also mourned the milestones that will never come, like Antonio's first day at school.
"I'm always going to wonder what his first word would be," West said.
You've finally found something that you thinks is really touching? What's this got to do with the price of tomatoes, VHB? Think Trayvon will be getting to vote in heaven? One black kid is not responsible for all the senseless violence perpetrated by all the other members of his race. You want to be considered guilty and targeted for all the crimes of Dumbya? I don't.

ObamaKKKare reduces the medical profession to a welfare system where the best and brightest of American youth will find other professions more attractive than medicine. The void will be filled by poorly educated Third-World losers like Shiping Bao.

Doctors are actually outsourcing much of the work overseas. Yep, because the doctors overseas are cheaper, and it's more expedient too!

Well, let me present you with the same scenario which was presented to Homer and Lily.
What if a black man had noticed a white teenager acting suspicious in his neighborhood, called the police and then tried to keep an eye on his whereabouts before they arrived...and what if an eye witness saw the white teenager straddling the black man and beating him giving the black man a broken nose, lacerations on the back of his head and two black eyes...and what if the black man had screamed for help and, when help didn't arrive, took out his pocketknife and stabbed the white teenager in self defense.
Would you claim the black man acted in self defense or would you call him a racist whose only intent was to kill a white troubled teenager who was given the status of sainthood after such an attack?
Be honest.
You keep bringing up hypothetical situations son.

It's no different than your assertions in the Zimmerman case.

Another Guilty Plea in Mississippi Hate Crime Death (ZNN)
Watch:


Quote:
Mississippi -- A fourth man has pleaded guilty to a federal hate crime in the death of a black man who was beaten by a gang of young whites, then run over by a pickup truck driven by one of them in Mississippi in 2011. In a separate but related case, another Mississippi man admitted he was part of a group of whites who carried out other racial attacks against African-Americans around the same time.

Here is the simple fact that most all of you are missing. Zimmerman turned around to return to his car and wait for the police. All Martin had to do was go home. But he didn't. So he caused his own death.
And all Zimmerman had to do was stay in the God Damn Truck & Not disobey the police and not violate the guidelines of Neighborhood Watch And when asked by Martin identify himself as Neighborhood Watch.

But he didn't. And therefore he caused Martin's death.

Term limits once was one of the battle cries when demanding change and accountability.
Maybe it's time for another movement and risk being called racists again.
Term limits should be at the top of the republican platform in 2016. If they have any kahunas, it will be.
I'm holding out Rand Paul will be at least one future GOP candidate who puts country before party.
It's my guess moderates and independents would also get behind that candidate.
When has anybody accused you of racism for wanting term limits?

Didn't you read Patrick's definition of Straw Man?

Here:

Description of Straw Man

The Straw Man fallacy is committed when a person simply ignores a person's actual position and substitutes a distorted, exaggerated or misrepresented version of that position. This sort of "reasoning" has the following pattern:

Person A has position X.
Person B presents position Y (which is a distorted version of X).
Person B attacks position Y.
Therefore X is false/incorrect/flawed.
This sort of "reasoning" is fallacious because attacking a distorted version of a position simply does not constitute an attack on the position itself. One might as well expect an attack on a poor drawing of a person to hurt the person.
