How dare the intended target deprive the poor youth of his redistributed ‘share of the pie’.

LOL, I initially read the headline as: "Juvenile killed in botched robbery attempt at Detroit's Gangland Shopping Center"

My mistake, I guess I am biased after all.

I don’t think this is what Obama had in mind when he said that he “believed in Redistribution......so everyone has a shot”

This kid had his shot, but didn’t expect return fire

“No doubt the poor, misunderstood yut wanted to be a rap star and was beginning to turn his life around”

I’ll just dive through the cynicism here and say that, his eyes and dreams lifted by the One, this yute was thinking of a career in government - the money is steadier and the victims don’t shoot back!

Rap star? Huh - you must be a racist!

If his single momma hadn’t spread her legs, he wouldn’t be dead.

It’s all her fault.

“If his single momma hadn’t spread her legs, he wouldn’t be dead. It’s all her fault.”

Now Now, she didn’t build that on her own. Maybe he had a bunch of crappy unionized teachers that could only read at a 6th grade level couldn’t be fired for incompetence. Or a welfare system that substituted for a father. Or an entertainment industry that celebrated thuggery and destructive behavior. Or politicians who told taugh him from birth that he was a victim and was due reparations by any means necessary.

Oh, THE HORRORS OF IT!! Another innocent Trayvon snuffed out at the beginning of what would have been such a productive life of dope dealing, robbery, and multiple murders.

At Grandland?

They were members of the “urban” demographic as was likely their target, too.

This was our local shopping area when I was growing up. A&P and another grocery store, clothing stores, a shoe store, Kresege’s and more were located there. It was thriving and nice. It also sits on the edge of one of the nicest neighborhoods in Detroit. We lived about a mile west of there.

You made me spill my coffee. I laughed, as it is the truth, we live in Las Vegas, and our natives are no better. Must be the water.

I grew up west of Detroit in its heyday! Everyone I knew was attached to the auto industry.

I have spent the last 12 years in suburban Chicago, working on the Southside (Ford Assembly on 130th). Now I’m in Tejas and can’t be happier. IMPO, my urban bona fides are quite strong.

That said, we are in different times today and the urban residents have an entitlement attitude that has become more pronounced since 01/20/2009.

I still plan on retiring in rural Jackson/Calhoun county!

Both are good relatively rural counties that aren't so far from everything as to be inconvenient. Both are fairly inexpensive to live in as well.
