The first option is always "get your gun". It's sad that these kids are brought up in violence from birth and really don't kbnow any other way. It's just a shame that we have to send out kids to schools with these thugs. Next time it might be our kids shot.

Actually- the white kid wasn't the shooter- he was the driver. Read the story.

99%? Please point us to the page in the U.S. Statistical Abstract or the recent crime study report this "99%" statistic originates from.

You can't, can you? Of course not!

The next time you want to bend over and pull a b.s. statistic out of your @ss wait until you arrive at your weekly Ku Klux Klowns or Airhead Brotherhood meeting or are in the company of some of your cross-burning pals. They're the only ones who are going to blindly accept whatever blabbering, slobbering nonsense comes tumbling out of your gaping mouth.

You can return to an upright position and pull your pants back up now.

99% indeed! What a ludicrously clownish and ignorant post!!

Riverview, I have lived there my WHOLE life & I am Just DISGUSTED at what has happened to our town. What do you expect when our friggen county approves several thousand homes to be built in a town that is not equipped for so many people. We did not need or want our town to be filled with yuppies & ghetto people. And if I offended you by saying Ghetto how about this I have seen 3 different "low-income" apartments built & ALL of them were nice apartments not they are completely trashed & I am not saying it is a race thing...It is a CLASS thing. This is just a preview of what is to come for Riverview!

Here's what I have to say now...

99%? Where the data that says 99%?

I'm not disputing that there is a high crime rate and incidence of crime among black youth. You haven't presented anything in your post I didn't already know.

I take exception to post like the "99%" one, or those that say "these black people are all criminals, thugs, etc."

Listen pal (yeah, I know, you're not my pal!), there are more than 24 million blacks over the age of 15 in the United States - not counting those over age 60. If even so much as 1/4 of that group were living a criminal lifestyle there wouldn't be enough law enforcement officers or jails/prisons to keep up.

A small segement of the black community have adopted a criminal, socially deviant lifestyle. Unfortunately, that segment garners enough publicity to taint the much larger, law abiding segement with a negative image, at least in the eyes of deranged, hard-core bigots and unthinking, unread, misinformed simpletons.

Even using you own numbers:

- In twelve states, between 85 and 90 percent of adult black men are NOT incarcerated.

- In ten states, between 90 and 95 percent of black adults are NOT incarcerated.

The last time I checked there were 50 states in the union. So every time you point to 6, 10, 12 or 15 states that leaves out 44, 40, 38 or 35 states, meaning we are again talking about a minority of states.

Nice try, but no cigar this time! You can stop LYAO now, unless, of course, you enjoy laughing at yourself.

Have a nice day.

Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson, Son of Sam...

Who killed his wife, her lover and his own two children this weekend here in the Tampa Bay area?

Pointing to specific incidences of crime or violence proves nothing.

The people I listed above committed heinous crimes. That makes THEM, and ONLY them, heinous people - not their entire race.

The sooner you get that through your empty head the less often you'll make a fool of yourself when talking to or interacting with intelligent, educated, rational people.

Not sure who the troll is that it using Dapper Dave lmao... but you are obviously chicken to post under a single name..... and keep that name.... Dapper Dave is a stand up guy who has some great opinions on this site... If you can't stand up and discuss things under your own signon... then troll on over to another site. It doesn't matter what color these kids' skin is.. This is a terrible crime. Youth and guns... doesn't mix. I think we should be more addressing the 16 and 17 year old shooters that are still on the loose. The only arrest at this time is the driver of the car. Meanwhile, we have 2 more young kids in the hospitals with bullet wounds... and a busload of kids that are scared to death because someone was shooting at or around their bus stop. Kids don't know this was meant for specific kids... they don't know if it was a random act... they don't know if they were shooting at someone else and hit the wrong kids. They are starting to talk about this stemming from an argument that was had last week. Dear God, why do these kids think the thing to do is to go get a gun and shoot whomever gives them a little grief in life. If this is their mentality... white or black.... we need them off the streets as soon as possible. And at this age, they surely will be tried as adults to keep them in the system. I'm just dreading the arm long arrest record that will more than likely be uncovered when they do post their arrest to the news sites. I can't understand where these kids get the mentality to kill... it just blows my mind. As a teenager, the biggest thing we worried about was a bloody nose or a black eye.... now days... they just pull a gun and shoot ya. sad.
But troll... go away... or come back under a real name that we can identify just how far out in left field you are.

Sometimes silence is the best way to express disapproval. Or waiting 24 hours to hit "send". I can't imagine how tough it is for you. Sorry, again, you have to hear this.

Not sure why race is being brought into this. Just for everyone's information It's not always about how the kids were raised. The driver Jeff Argo was an Eagle Scout. So don't judge a book by its cover until you know the entire set of circumstances surrounding the crime. In no way do I condone violence and Jeff will be punished for his role. He is a good kid and unfortunately got involved in something he shouldn't have.

Feel better now tom?

Some people post just to see their fake name in print. Now they will sit back and wait for others to think they are serious and attack him/her. Then he/she will attack back.**rolling eyes**

Sorry darlin, I'm not taking the bait.

Have a great day!

Look, I'm by no means a racist, but ignoring the problem of black men in this country is downright negligent. While it's certainly not 99% of the crimes committed, it is disproportionately high. Just ask a normal, moderately educated black woman how hard it is to find a husband of her own ethnicity that hasn't served time. I would never judge a person by the color of their skin alone, but clothing, appearance, language, and color all work to make a pretty good case.

I think you are a nasty nasty excuse for a human being. It don't matter what color you are it's just horrible. Why do people like you even make comment so nasty. Most of all the other school shooting was committed by white individuals. You don't have to be Black and wear dread locks to do horrible things. I think it people like you who committ crimes and get away with it, You are the Judas the one who betrayed Jesus. You need to look in the mirrow and pray that your son or daughter don't do such a thing and make you day then what would you say that he or she was a beer drinking redneck
