Sorry rastus. Who do you think built Capetown etc ... the gibbering savages who were living in grass huts (at least they have now moved up to tin huts ... developing...)

You may be right about no whites in Zimbabwe. After they were kicked off the farms they had succesfully run for generations, they went elsewhere. You probably don't even KNOW what has happened to Zimbabwe since then. And you won't hear it on the BBC either.

if this was a white man who shot a black teen you all would be crying racism and demanding the father be charged with murder and nothing less then executed. we have a double standard in this society. anytime something happens to a black person, no matter what, it's racist and an outrage. But when the same thing happens to a white person it's expected and acceptable.
I'm sure the same people that think this guy is innocent want to persecute joe horn down in texas.

<quoted text> Yes, the adult should have phoned in a concern of danger or threats to atleast have law officals give the white kids a warning of their breaking the laws if anything violent were to occur. But these type incidents only delay in some reprehensible retaliation type incident after the cops give the warning, and then the father would be put in the same position anyhow to likely give the same action.
Teens gotta learn, you harass or threaten some other teen and you might just get the response you didn't expect, and maybe that is the end of your own life. So, stop playing games, figuring a cop is only going to reprimand you and you can then continue the stupid little incident all over again. Yeah, the loss of a teens life is sad, but his actions were very dumb and threatening.
So, to blame the father for overreacting or stepping beyond the bounds, who can say that, till you are in his exact same shoes. I am white too, not by name but by color.
Great post.

White is a murderer. He should have locked himself in the house, armed himself if he felt it necessary, and called police. Had the boys made an attempt to break into the house before the police arrived, then he would have been justified in shooting at them.
Going outside, escalating the violence, and shooting a kid makes this adult man a murderer.
He belongs in jail.

Who can say? I can say, the law can say.
He's a grown man, not a hot head kid.
He escalated the violence and killed a kid instead of calling the police and allowing them to disperse these kids.
He's a murderer and belongs in jail.
Seems very simple to me.

SO then WHY wasn't he charged with murder?

Because IT's NOT simple at all.

IF A BUNCH OF BLACK MEN WALK ONTO A WHITE MAN PROPERTY THREATNING HIM

AND THEY GET SHOT, THE POLICE CALL IT SELF DEFENSE

BUT WHEN SOME WHITE THUGS WALK ONTO A BLACK MANS HOUSE THREATNING HIM AND HE GETS SHOT IT CALLED MAN SLUGHTER

WHITE PEOPLE WILL PAY SOON
