I have an idea, instead of arresting a guy who played a joke, why dont you go arrest: drug dealers, child molesters, pimps, gang members and illegal aliens. IDIOTS.

Seems like the guy was trying to say "Today we're having a special customer White sale"

My black pals and I laughed at this one ... we were gonna wait untill St Patrick's Day and announce that the corned beef was sold out and that "all Irish" should leave the store immediately ... or really have an impact by asking all fat people to leave the bread and candy departments and take advantage of the sale on treadmills .... this is just silly ...

I know from the guy that fills the coke machines that he wanted them to leave so they wouldn't be late for the anniversary of the Iraq War celebration in the parking lot.

I, as a white man, will be laughing at that -not protesting.

I wonder which candidate these jack***** voted for president during the last primary election.

John McCain??? Mike Huckabee??? HRC???

If so, then these clueless neocon idiots should have their voting privileges revoked and be rubbed out, because these candidates would've given amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens by now had either of them been elected.

Personally I really don't see anything funny about the entire situation. If a black person would have challenged him and said I'm not going anywhere whitey or some other offence, it probably would have sparked a brawl, and our responses would be very different right now. I'm glad they caught who did it, but I pray that this kid will turn a new leaf. As he goes out into the world, not everyone will get his racial jokes and he may get his butt handed to him.

RAI,
I read & re-read the article several times and failed to see any reference to the race of this despicable person.'Assuming' he a Anglo (Whitey) sounds racist,serious felony in America.

Much ado over little. A teenager doing a dumb prank, initiate an appropriate penalty and keep it from reoccurring. Unfortunately, all the usual numskulls will capitalize on this, and it'll be a huge story, even though its effect was next to nothing. I'm not excusing it, just giving it the appropriate weight and concern. A dimwit comandeering a department store PA microphone isn't a big deal. But it'll be turned into one.

This is a crime? In the United States? A teenage prank that was in poor taste (but is still pretty funny)? Whatever happened to free speech?

I bet he really said "all fat people."

Freedom is going the way of the dodo. Part of that is the freedom to be stupid, the freedom to annoy people and the freedom to offend people. This is not "crying fire in a crowded theater." Not even close. This is just silly. Mildly offensive, but not a crime.
