MA... which has gun control. They’ll blame it on the easy availability of guns.

Thanks to liberals, the victim couldn’t even save her own life.

IOW, the criminal has easy access to firearms while the law abiders do not.
Brilliant.

Without even looking, it's gotta be those "Rogue Amish" again, but then, we can't let their Race be published in today's politically-correct society.

What is the racial composition of these types of crimes?

Absolutely correct!

In Texas, our right to carry concealed handguns is widely recognized as one of the most successful crime deterrent statutes ever enacted.

It's much more difficult and riskier to attempt to commit a felony if your intended victim can fight back.

Violent crime has plummeted as a result.

They appear to be black, but their names don’t sound African American.

Recent immigrants from Somalia, or Haiti, or some other hell hole? I don’t suppose the press is likely to tell us anything much about them.

Police say it started earlier in the evening when there was a fight and 20-year-old Jameson Phoun and 19-year-old Sothy Voeun were asked to leave.

Investigators say the men came back a short time later with guns and started shooting.

“It was just like Rambo,” a 17-year-old witness told WBZ Radio.
“(She) got shot in the neck and the chest and she couldn’t breathe. I saw a lot of people with blood on them getting shot.”

“Send pricks like that up here and we’ll send em back in body bags.”

I suggest that just voting Snow and Collins out of their sinecure your Maine voters might be more productive.

IIRC, those Liberals voted for the enviro acts which so harmed Maine’s forest industry. Not to mention so many aspects of Obamunism which they voted for.

Two injured in separate shooting, stabbing in Lynn
January 1, 2011 01:44 PM

The victims of a separate shooting and stabbing on New Year’s Day are recovering from injuries in area hospitals, Lynn police said.

A 55-year-old woman was shot in the chest by a stray bullet fired from a gun outside her home at 7:05 a .m., as she dressed for work this morning, police said.

The victim, who was not identified, was in stable condition this afternoon at Massachusetts General Hospital, said Lynn Police Lt. Peter Holey.

Sadly true. A Woburn cop was shot and killed at Christmas by a recent parolee. That parolee had been sentenced to three life terms and had broke out of prison twice. But because some excrement-for-brains law student advocate and coached him through a parole board hearing staffed by bleeding heart liberal schmucks, he was freed to go right back to stealing and killing. The parole board seems to be awol, not answering their phones.

Liberals are insane. They care more for the criminal than for his victims.

The parole board who set that one free should serve the ‘parolee's’ sentences after paying their individual net worths to its victim(s).

I’m sorry, I know people sue all the time...but, when
are the victims family going to sue the parole board.
Justice has to be turned around and maybe, just maybe
the people who are letting these murders go free will
think twice if they are deemed responsible as well.

In the movie, THE FIGHTER it looked like there was a Cambodian presence. They were depicting a lot of crack users. This was based on a true story.

These are Cambodian or Southeast Asian “yutes”. They have been shooting back and forth at each other for twenty years.

I believe they are responsible for whatever crime/harm a parolee they release does unless they are forced to release him/her (an order they should refuse or quit their job if necessary).

If someone giving or selling someone one drink is responsible for the damage that person does while intoxicated, then a parole board is certainly responsible for the crime/damage a convict they set free does while on parole.

Why is it that the police are always held accountable for any perceived wrong that they may do while on duty. They will usually be suspended from their jobs sometimes without pay until they are thoroughly examined. During this period the officer’s name and photo will be plastered all over the news. Why is it that the parole board is not subjected to the same kind of investigation and scrutiny? Another question that I have is why the Department of Social Services is not also held accountable when they give abused children back to their abusing parents, sometimes ending in the death of the child. Do we ever see the faces of the DSS personnel who made the decision? Are their jobs threatened if their decision ends with the death of a child?

The one pictured appears to be South East Asian perhaps. The names seem Asian too. But they don’t appear to be black at all. The one with his pants on the ground is a definite wanna be though.
