As soon as the Legislature permits concealed carry in bars people will be able to shoot each other in the pleasant atmosphere of the bar, rather than in the parking lot.

Idiot. This killer wasn't someone who has a CCWP..it was a criminal. If the victim had a CCWP and a weapon maybe she could have saved her own life.

Regardless of race or socio-economic level, why are people out running the streets and hanging in bars in the night? Why aren't they home in bed where they belong? Who takes care of their children while they are "clubbing"? How do they get up and go to work the next morning when they've been out carrying on all night? Why do people think this is a good way to live their lives?

I agree with you but I don't like the idea of 'belonging' unless you refer exclusively to married women with children.

At the end of the day we have had another sinceless crime. Regardless how this young lady lived her life, she is now dead and her children have no mother.May God be with this family in their time of sorrow.

For heaven's sake, get real. We don't know anything about this young woman. It's a shame she was killed. People work different shifts, with different days off, not just weekends, and maybe go out for a while later than you do or to places you wouldn't go. So what? Why bash the victim here? You don't know how often she went out or why. If this isn't your idea of relaxation, don't bash others for choosing it, just don't do it yourself.

Sheesh. Ease up already. It's the violence that is reprehensible.

Hahaha @ Lolita and Well for NOT recognizing the buffoonery!!! The reason this cat is spelling like that is to disrespect African American males/AND Women on a young Black Mothers comment page concerning her death. Not only is he making a mockery of us, but also of you!

We have come so far in this country regarding race, but RESPECT has always existed. Show some.

You will NEVER change this, ever. This is the way they live, gangbanging,knocking up their baby mamas, selling drugs and killing each other. These are criminals with illegal guns. You can't feel sorry for them as some of the politicians want you to do.

Who is THEY? Why does these discussions always turn into racial sterotypes? I won't justify your comments by defending Alicia, because those who knew her personally also knew her character. However, even if you didn't know her personally, how can you not recognize the tragedy of a young women being shot down and little girls losing their mother?

Oh well! Perhaps if your mother had loved you, and taught you to love others you'd understand how sad this truly is!

Can't you disagree with someone without calling them an idiot? Well, probably not.

There should be laws against this indiscriminate killing of people. If there were more laws in place people wouldn't do this sort of thing.

I agree with you half way. 1/2 the problem is that she shouldn't (or anyone else) have been at that dive of a bar anyways. Sometimes you get what you ask for by the places you go.
