I’m sure they’ll get around to publishing a picture of De’Marquis, who is being tried as an adult. Probably not of the 14-year-old.

Our society is sick.

I'm with you. Could care less about the color of one's skin. However, the black culture infects more blacks as a percentage of distinct population than that of the white population. Don't know the reason why.

What I do know is the gun violence within the black culture has to end. And I am to the point as are others I'm sure, that street justice is not sounding so terrible.

And the bottom-feeding Communist DemocRATS STILL think that guns are the problem. A 17 and 14 year old shoots a 17 month old in the face and it’s the NRA’s fault? America! IT’S TIME TO WAKE THE **** UP!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Street justice IS terrible. I’m sure you know that. But unless and until American does a 180 and turns away from Obamanism - its almost inevitable.

Yeah.

The only thing I’m almost as sick of as reading stories like this one is hearing the perpetrator’s family afterwards moan about what a “good kid” the perpetrator was.

Which reminds me. When are we going to award some sort of posthumous medal to sweet little Trayvon?

You had better start caring, because THEY do care about yours. And if you are white, you are the target.

"Polar Bear Hunting" is NOT a joke, myth or rumor. Flash mobs are NOT a figment of one's imagination, "White Girl Bleed A Lot" is NOT a fabrication.

Wake Up!

West said detectives showed her photographs of about 24 young men. She pointed to one, saying he looked like the gunman.

“After I picked him, they said they had him in custody,” West said. “It looked just like him. So I think we got our man.”

Sabrina Elkins, the sister of the older suspect in the baby’s slaying, said Friday evening that she believed her brother was innocent of the charges. She didn’t know whether he had a lawyer.

“He couldn’t have done that to a little baby,” she told AP. “My brother has a good heart.”

She said that her brother had been living in Atlanta, and only returned to Brunswick a few months ago. Typically, he would come by her house in the morning and they’d go to breakfast.

But yesterday morning, police came to her door. Her brother was walking down the sidewalk and saw the officers at her door but came over anyway, Sabrina Elkins said.

“The police came pointing a Taser at him, telling him to get on the ground,” she recalled by phone. “He said, ‘What are you getting me for? Can you tell me what I did?’”

It’s also important to note that it is more difficult for people of one race to accurately tell the difference between 2 people of another race.

Not saying that is the case here, just important to remember.

If she identified a suspect, then that lowers the chances she paid someone to do it.

I’m just speculating out loud here....

Why is it that too many people who should know better are so prone to believe that this woman would kill her own blue-eyed baby in broad daylight in a residential area in the most gruesome of ways than to believe that she told the truth about the whole incident that two black teenage thugs did it???

Why???

The word ”Hispanic” has no meaning because it could mean a person who is 100% Aztec, or Mayan (from Central America) or West African (from the Caribbean) or Italian or German (from Argentina, Uruguay,.Paraguay). Or mixtures of any of the above with Spaniards.
As an informed observer of Spanish-Caribbean culture -which has about ten distinct classifications of race, covering the spectrum from black to.white, to me the baby in the photo looks like what they call ”jabado”, a category on non-white who are often born with light skin and fair hair which darkens over time. I have relatives by marriage like this. The nose is the give away, which remains negroid. There is a refrain from a song that refers to this: ”y tu abuela, donde esta?” (where’s your grandma?) said to a person trying to pass for white, reminding him that he has a black grandmother.

No idea. Especially since, as I just explained, the word Hispanic has no meaning whatsoever in terms of race. It’s laughable. You should hear black ”Hispanics” commenting about black Americans as ”los negros” and ”monkeys” as if they themselves are not black.

Based upon the following definition of Hispanic from Wikipedia would it be fair to say that Luis Santiago, the boys father, is Hispanic:

Hispanic (Spanish: hispano, hispánico; Portuguese: hispânico, hispano, Catalan: hispà, hispànic)[1][2] is an ethnonym that denotes a relationship to Spain or, in some definitions, to ancient Hispania, which comprised the Iberian Peninsula including the modern states of Andorra, Portugal, and Spain and the British Crown Dependency of Gibraltar.

Today, organizations in the United States use the term to refer to persons with a historical and cultural relationship either with Spain and Portugal or only with Spain, regardless of race.[3][4] However, in the eyes of the US Census Bureau, Hispanics or Latinos can be of any race, any ancestry, or any country of origin.[5][6]

The term is more broadly used to refer to the culture, peoples, or nations with a historical link to Spain, especially those countries which were once colonized by Spain, particularly the countries of Latin America which were colonized by Spain.

The Hispanic culture is a set of customs, traditions, beliefs and art forms (music, literature, dress, architecture, cuisine or others) which are generally shared by peoples in Hispanic regions, but which can vary considerably from one country or territory to another. The Spanish and Portuguese cultures are the main cultural element shared by Hispanic peoples.[3][4]

Ego is a stubborn force. Rather than concede to a more informed source, you resort to a ridiculous wiki article - but even that makes my point for me. There is no racial or even ethnic identity conveyed by the word Hispanic - it refers broadly to people of Iberian descent throughout the former Spanish empire, and also includes the full-blooded indiginous Indian tribes of South America, some of whom speak Spanish now, as well as full blooded Africans descended from the slaves brought to the former Spanish empire.
For the third time: therefore, calling someone Hispanic is utterly meaningless as a racial or ethnic designation, because it could mean any of the above, and/or any of the above in combination with Iberians.
From looking at the photo of the child, I draw the conclusion that the father has mixed blood, with at least one mulato grandparent.

And the name “Santiago” — what does that sound like??

And your point is?

My family’s surname is Hispanic. We are considered “Caucasion” when we check the race form. Hispanic is not a race by government standards.

What difference does it make? If we were purple, it doesn’t mean we deserve to have out babies shot in the face in the street. NOBODY, and this includes all races, cultures, and creeds should have to live in fear of being gunned down in the streets by feral thugs.

What is the matter with you - do you lack reading comprehension?
I have not seen photographs of the father. His last name suggests nothing other than that an ancestor was Iberian. He could be any of the.varieties of AfroCaribbean - negro, mulato, mulato claro, mulato-chino, blanco capiro, jabado, etc. from Puerto Rico, Cuba, the D.R. or Venezuela; he could be a Spanish immigrant, he could have been born in Argentina as the great-grandson of a Spaniard and have had a mother of German descent, he could be half-Indian from Ecuador or Guatamala, Honduras,.Mexico,.El Salvador or Peru....he could be a Chicano. The last name in of itself does not inform his racial make up. I know several people with the same Spanish last name who are of different races and from different countries.

Now we are getting somewhere. You may of course use whatever word you like whenever you like. But, as I have thoroughly demonstrated, it is a bogus word created by the left to market the idea of an underprivileged constituency. It has no application to race, ethnicity, culture, food or music. Mostly it is used by bureaucrats committing fraud and by Latin Americans in the US who are of mixed blood - i.e., brown-skinned as a way to avoid being classified as Negro. This is especially true of AfroCaribbeans who are Negro.

Oh wow, I replied to this 2 days ago and it apparently didn’t post.

Don’t misunderstand me, I still don’t think she’s telling the truth. Something is amiss here...

Freepers can flame me for saying it all day long, I don’t give a rip.... Something ain’t right...

I haven’t even watched any of her interviews, but I will, and then I’ll feel more confident one way or the other. I am a pretty good judge of people and a decent body language reader. I wonder of there are any expert freepers who could read her body language and tell us. That’d be interesting...
