I suspect the story is not entirely accurate. Most likely the couple was arrested for stealing, not insulting two fat girls, which would not be considered a crime. The accusation that they were arrested for insulting remarks is likely a fabrication by reporters in order to catch the attention of more readers...a tactic which is being used more and more often.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet...or in the paper...or on the tv news....or anywhere else.

This is why the two got their happy asses arrested:

The confrontation began when the couple, Midalia Silverio Dunn, 43, and George Joseph Burns, 44, walked up to a group of people eating pizza at the Big Chill Bar Thursday night, according to a Monroe County Sheriff's Office news release.
They tried to take some of the pizza from the group -- a couple, their 21-year-old daughter and the daughter's friend - and began to call the girls fat, officials said.
A fight began and Burns struck both girls, knocking one to the ground, the release said.

Burns and Dunn left the bar, but the father followed them out and a fight broke out between he and Burns, officials said.
A woman told Dunn, who was standing by the fighting men, to move out of the way so she wouldn't get hurt, but Dunn punched her, the release said.
Burns and Dunn were treated for injuries at Mariner's Hospital and then arrested on battery charges.
They were both released Friday -- Burns on $6000 bond and Dunn on $2000 bond.

Which translates down to this. The idiots walked on bond ..Burns:$600. And Dunn:$200.

Is a joke to them. Easy trouble at little cost.

This time.

Thank you for the clarification. I knew there was more to this story than the headline was telling us. The press once again proves they are a bunch of asses.

Race is always involved when the unprovoked attack is on someone of a different race. People commit crimes on people outside their race as a display of racism and dominance.
It can be, but that doesn't mean it always is. If you steal expensive cars and the owner of one of the cars is of another race and tries to stop you by throwing a punch and a fight ensues, is that about racism or about stealing a car? I don't think it is racism, but maybe you know something I haven't thought about.

I agree. But it gets folk to read the story. I just paused my Adblock to see if there were ads on the page. Yes. So the headline got me to open the story ...in hopes I would open an ad.

Also thought opening the site would tell me what in the hell happened.

Even though I read it, am still not real sure what happened. Adults hitting young people?

Well, guess getting decked by some old person is better than having some old person chase a young'in down whilst naked and chew their captured up!

Takes it up a notch or two...just insulting and pounding on the young.

As for not believing every thing you read. That will be a hard sell her, because most believe what they read or interpret in their own way. Also they think only the truth is in what you read, and that book smarts is the only kind of smarts..lol! Christ for some on here, google is all they do for information, they use it, then try to come off as a source of endless information they gleaned all on their little own, wikipedia being their favorite source of information.
I myself believe there is more to learning that what one gets from a book, or a classroom, there is actual life, and experience, both being the better teacher.

Well Spotted Girl I don't see it that way, I see it as headline grabbing.
Also I am a white woman, to a degree, I am also part Cree Indian.
No my first loyalties are not to any women, only those that are my friends, or family. I strongly believe that we stand on our own in most things in life, at least I do, no one fights for me, or takes a stand for me, but me. I do not stand by a woman just because she is a woman, because most women today live by a double standard, and believe that they are better than a man, and to me that is bullshit, they want equality, but not for everyone, but for themselves,(women). No I am not a libber for women, but a libber for equal rights, for both sexes, not one more than the other.
If it was a green man attacking a purple girl, I would still say they are sensationalizing by remarking on color. I would still say, why can't the headline say man attacks woman.
In the other headline where the guy hits the fat broad, no one seems to be too concerned, is it because he is white? Why did they not say, white man attacks to fat white women???
Which part of you is Cree :)

I think you should be charged with a hate crime just the same. Ignorance is no excuse.

Isn't it only a hate crime if you go after someone because of the group to which they are a member? Unless you are considering owners of expensive cars as a protected group.

Ignorance would be when the perpetrator of a crime claims that they didn't know what they were doing was a crime. In the scenario I described, that was not an issue.

Yes, but if you steal the car of someone outside your race and were too stupid to do the research to make sure you were targeting your own, then you might as well be a racist, and you are only perpetuating racism.

Are you sure about that? They didn't say what happened to the pizza in the article. Is eating pizza harming it?
