He must have been lying because things like this never happen (sarcasm)!

Hopefully it did not happen and there was just a misunderstanding. Otherwise, play nice or pay up lady!

I really doubt this happened, but those brothers stand to make them some money.

Hell, there was 11 of them. I wonder if they reserved more than one room. Also, they should've
hidden the booze, the drugs, and acted like well behaved human beings. Shame on you people. Next time be more descrete, like just one of you should show up at the front counter and the rest come in through the back window. That's the way us Mexicans do it!:)

Sounds like all the man did was voice the truth, that is the way the majority of these people act.

if they were illegals, the govt would take the motel away from the lawful property owner and give it to the illegals as compensation for the offense.

since they were black, shouldnt they have been arrested and dragged down the street behind a pickup truck?

Well, once you see what the so-call legal system does to minorities, it makes perfect sense that racism is alive and well in dubya's state.

AUSTIN, Texas - A man who died in prison while serving time for a rape he didn't commit was cleared Friday by a judge who called the state's first posthumous DNA exoneration "the saddest case" he'd ever seen.

State District Judge Charles Baird ordered Timothy Cole's record expunged.

Cole was convicted of raping a Texas Tech University student in Lubbock in 1985 and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. He died in 1999 at age 39 from asthma complications.

Here's probably what happened. 10 people wanted to stay in 1 room. Most motels/hotels have policies on number of people to room. Since she didn't wana fork over money for additional rooms, she probably threw a temper tandrem, turned it into a racial thing, and now its in the media.

Racism and alleged segregation occur in this country because people wont let it be a think of the past.

Get back on the short yellow bus for reading comprehension lessons. You showed your ignorance and racism as you obviously ignored the story's report that the family had reserved ROOMS in advance.

When's your next cross burning at dubya's house? You are a knuckle-dragging kluless klucking klann neanderthal!

Exactly my point. Another mad black person throwing the race card. Excuse me for missing the "s" in rooms. How does that make me racist? I was making an observation. I have respect for all races, but no respect for you as a person because you are out of control.

These lowlife scumballs don't represent the majority of people in El Paso. Once you drive around 75 miles west from El Paso, racist fools like these start crawling out from under the rocks.

So let me get this straight. When a black person accuses a white person of being a member of the kkk, thats okay. But when the white person calls the black person angry and out of control, he's racist. Exactly my point. There's no control. All white people are racist, and black people are right. Point taken.

I dont see color, I see character.

Obama needs to kick that hotel owners arse and throw him in a terrorist prison camp. The black family should be given millions in damages and treated as royalty anytime they come back to Seminole,TX.
