I am getting sick of reading about different shootings every morning I get on here. It is the same old headlines.

Every discussion starts making it about race. It doesn't matter what color your skin is we have really sick individuals in this world. If it is not gun killing it is child molestation, swimming accidents, people being stuffed into sewers, etc. This world is getting crazier each and every day.

Then I get on these topix and read comments and it just proves what I just said above ... there are some sick individuals in this world. No we all don't agree on the same things but does that give us the right to say mean and hurtful things on here?

The rednecks may be out but you and your loved ones do not have to worry about getting shot by a redneck and you know I am right. The left bashes the right and claims many on the right to be bigots but when the lefties lock their doors at night, they are not locking it to keep tea partiers out. They are locking their doors to keep the monster they have made out, the monster welfare created by condoning unchecked breeding by single moms waiting on that gubment check. Go ahead and bash the rednecks Hank, they don't care, they are not burying their young like a certain other group that turns a blind eye to the real problem while blaming whitey for their problems.
Sorry Bob but young rednecks are shooting each other over here like it's turkey season.( and by golly you just let one of them thar tea partiers try to come in MY door, they will get what fer)

Maybe people use satire to illuminate the idiosyncrasies of today's society. Perhaps if the hood rats were aware of how people laugh at and mock them they would see how foolish they are acting and make corrections.

Just a thought.

It's probably not a public assistance check that is buying the guns, if they are in fact purchased. Lotta people--you know the kind that don't qualify for any particular assistance, have a record and no high school credential--supporting themselves by selling drugs, bootlegging DVDs and CDs, ripping off copper piping, and on and on.

I am in no way defending any illegal activity, just want to point out that the folks who are always screaming that public assistance is the problem need to revise their thinking.

Solutions need to go deep and involve schools, law enforcement, churches, parents and yes, even the folks who like to sit on the sidelines out in the suburbs and laugh at the fools they have left behind. PLENTY of little boys out there who feel a need for big guns.

Does it make you feel safer to discount someone else's dead son as a "hood rat"?

Most social problems (like crime) have a funny way of ignoring geopolitical boundaries, and even demographics. You may think this is someone else's problem.

I disagree.

No--they probably weren't just getting their lives together, although who can fail to forgive a family for wanting to believe that about any of their young men.

Reality is, their lives were probably sacrificed for them long ago, by every teacher, principal, counselor, administrator and board member who believed that as young as kindergarten that they would never amount to much and that everyone was already doing everything that could be expected of them. But, don't think this is only about the schools. Add to that list every idiot who thinks it's funny when a young black man is gunned down by another young black man. Add also everyone who talks about black people as if they are creatures from another planet, totally lacking in human feeling, "just squirting out babies to get a check." Add on every business who left the city for the easier pickings out in the 'burbs, taking with them a handful of jobs. Add on every industry that decided that third world workers are easier to exploit than our own home-grown workers. Add to that everyone who thinks that the problems left behind in the city are caused by and must be solved by "the black community." And that includes police who believe that people who live in certain parts of the city deserve to be crime victims--just for living there. And the people who drive into the city to pick up a hooker or score some recreational pharmaceuticals.

Yeah, maybe they wanted a more together life. But, by the time they got a gun in their hand the odds were very small. But make no mistake, the odds were never that good to begin with. And that rests on all of us.
