didn't paris not too long ago enter the news media with some racial fights and so forth? something about a black man murdered, supposedly drug by a vehicle?
in the wfaa reports they interviewed several residents that discussed the racial tensions in the town. even anderson cooper reported about it. several news media outlets reported the tensions. nationally and internationally.

You should watch some of them banging their knuckles on the key boards when they type. I know its hard typing without thumbs but all that grunting is too much. Its like living with cavemen. Motto for Paris "Come to Paris, and you to can become a racist loud mouthed over weight redneck cousin *%$$#@ that has no clue how retarded he/she is". "Be a good citizen and volunteer and we will bad mouth and try with all of our black hearts to ruin your name and bring all of your family down for making us ignorant rednecks look lazy. Thank yall and stay classy Paris, TX" That motto barely fit the front of our city sign. On the other sign it reads "Huh, dumbass". Gotta love Paris.

the problem is not the gay anything, it's the booze. Get rid of the booze and you get rid of a lot of the hate against anyone, everyone and thing. A society that supports such a poisonous mind bending, liver eatting drug should be responsible. The fact that the other two boys left means they were the wiser. And this boy being with a girl who the boys thought they were impressing with their action probably added to the meledrama. Seen a lot of hetrosexual stabbings and such at the old Robert Allens club and testostrone and booze with females present often lead to dog fights. You don't hear about lesbians doing such ridiculous things.

SO I GUESS YOUR PART OF THE 20% If you don't like it here, then leave. I don't like how this town is ran or how you have to have the right name to get anything, but that's how it is. There are a lot of good and nice people in this town. 80% Is very high. Think you need to look things over. I don't disagree with you, there is a lot of idiots here. Just don't let the small minded and close minded people cloud the good.

You are exactly right. I am leaving. That has been in the plans for almost a year now, but when you have things like a business and a house etc. you cant just leave them. I have been in the process of leaving for a while. Believe me as soon as ties are cut I wont look back. Anyone with a brain or loves their family are leaving that town in the next few years. Get out now while you can. Couldnt imagine having kids in this town learning from the other meth headed racists and I have forgot about the black crackheads that blame non-racist people over their problems. That whole town should flushed. Paris really makes Texas look bad.

Here's the latest:

No Hate Crime Charges For 2 Arrested In Texas Anti-Gay Beating And Burning?

http://networkedblogs.com/pmgWp

Is there no legal recourse for gay victims in Texas?! What about the federal hate crime law? I thought the feds could step in when the local and state police refuse to enforce the hate crime law when an obvious hate crime occurred.

How can you say it didn't happen this way, that he wasn't set on fire nor was he stabbed when it says in the story that he received 30 stitches and treatment for third-degree burns and severe bruises. Plus you can see the burn mark on his forearm in the photo
He was rolling around on the ground and rolled on a broken bottle. You are so gullible! The burns were from him landing on a stove. He was not SET on fire. YOU need to learn to see past what is immediately in front of you. Sometimes, just sometimes there is more to the story. Don't ya think?

Sorry but it's the gay thing, not just the booze. They already had hate in their hearts for gays and the alcohol just gave them the courage and impairment of judgement to do those horrible things. They already had fantasies of doing those things when sober I'm sure. People are who they really are when they are drunk. Please let's not make excuses for them because they were drunk or make it seem any less horrible because of it. Drunk is never a defense when it comes to drinking and driving and it's not an excuse for this.

So if you touched a woman on her breasts or just made a pass at her and she didn't like it do you think she has the right to shoot, stab, burn, beat, and kill you?
