'They begged for their lives with their trousers down': Two lost drunk British holidaymakers....
Mail Online ^ | 3/22/2012 | Daily Mail Reporter

Posted on 03/23/2012 6:41:24 AM PDT by mmanager

Two British tourists holidaying in Florida begged for their lives with their trousers pulled down before they were mercilessly shot dead, a court has heard. Shawn Tyson, who turned 17 on Monday, is said to have murdered James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24, after they drunkenly stumbled into the rundown Newtown neighbourhood of Sarasota. He allegedly forced the terrified pair to pull down their trousers before firing a volley of shots. Accused: Shawn Tyson is on trial for the murders of British tourists James Cooper and James Kouzaris Tyson is accused of going to rob the best friends in April 2011, and then killing them when they said they did not have any money.

Tyson faces a life sentence if convicted, but will not face the death penalty because of his age. The court in Sarasota heard how the two British holidaymakers were dining and drinking in the city's downtown with Cooper's parents on the night of April 15.

Why not the outrage with this murder? Where is Sharpton and Jackson?

There is a demonstration here in St. Louis today with the protester's wearing "hoodies" marching to city hall. This has the making of a violent summer coupled with Obama playing the race card.

Basically the Democratic party consists of 2/3 racists, we disguise it by calling them “civil rights” activists and voters concerned with civil rights and equality, but they are in fact racists. That is why the protection racket known as the Democratic party and their operatives in the media are hyping any and all incidents with racial hysteria.

I do believe in my fellow man to some extent and do think there are civil rights activists today although they have nothing on those from the past. The rest are opportunists and racists however. Just slightly disagreeing with you.

Violence is up. Those who say otherwise are not exactly telling the truth (imho).

If the skin colors here were reversed this would be splashed all over the MSM. Ditto for the Christian/Newsome murders and the elderly OK couple along with countless others.

Based upon this story alone, it appears that inner-city, gang-banging black trumps drunk, Anglo gay on the MSM oppressed minority meter.

Lately, the only semi-objective reporting on many of these 'types' of stories is coming from the UK/Pravda/etc.

Blacks feel inferior because the highest cause of death of young blacks is murder BY OTHER BLACKS.

They fear if the white community knew how violent and horrible blacks were with each other we would stop feeling white guilt. Lots of benefits come from liberal elites feeling ‘guilty’. Then again, liberal elites stay in power when black anger is directed at middle class whites.

Looking closely at this - the ONLY people benefiting from this system are liberal elites ... and they know what they’re doing. Here’s a link to elites talking to each other when they don’t know a conservative is in the room:

No doubt .. dead eyes/dead conscience.

However, a big mistake a lotta these braindead thugs do/will make is that for all their smirks/slouches etc,
there are plenty of smiling 'nice' guys who'll put a hole where their face used to be at the precise instant the zombie thought he'd found another 'victim'.

Look for that scenario to play out with increasing frequency as this year progresses . . .

_______________________________________________________

I just finished reading a post where it said because of the improving economy that gold prices were down.

First, there is no improving economy. Our economy has been purposely ruined by Obama so that when it crashes the democrats can further ignore the constitution because of the emergency.

While I do believe that Obama and the Democrat party will be successful in destroying the economy they will kill themselves in the process. The people in the cities that live off the government largess will not go without food for more than a couple of days until they venture out to people that have food and money to buy food with. They will kill a few people and take their money and food but then the word will get around about what is happening.

Blacks will be accused of causing all the murders and all the stealing, it will not be true of all blacks but all blacks will be accused. Soon there will be a race war. The people that do not receive the government largess are the people that provide for them that do receive something for nothing other than their being citizens. There will be open season on anyone who is black and out of their “black” neighborhood. It will not be safe to be black anywhere. When people get hungry they get angry. When they get angry to do bad things.

What Obama and democrat revolutionists want to happen, what they think will happen will not happen.

Anglo’s still make up about half of the country. Anglo’s believe in the rule of law and have for hundreds of years. We will not easily give up. Blood will run in the streets. There will be mass graves. People will be buried with bulldozers. It will not be pretty. When it is over there will be a new government but it will not be Socialist or Communist.

When a new government is created I have doubts that people who don’t contribute to the welfare of the society will be provided for. If you don’t work you won’t eat. There will be a lot of hungry people but not for long. It only takes a few weeks to starve to death. It takes a lot less than that to learn to work.

I’m old. I don’t look forward to the collapse of society but I look forward to the repair of society. I hope it turns out well. neighborhood. It will not be safe to be black anywhere. When people get hungry they get angry. When they get angry to do bad things.

What Obama and democrat revolutionists want to happen, what they think will happen will not happen.

Angloblack

It was Black on White which makes it ok.

The Zimmerman case is White on Black which makes it a horse of a different color. Zimmerman is in trouble not for what he did, but who he did it to.

Interracial violence such as murder, rape and assault. Just take rape as a good example. White men are not out raping black women. But black men raping white women, assaulting them and something killing them...this is a common crime. I call these hate crimes against white women. If black guys must rape they should do it withing their “community”

Yup. I am so disgusted at young and not so young white people, who adopt hip-hop clothing, music, slang, etc.

They think they are tough, and part of the thug culture.

They aren’t. They are fools, who are petting the dog that will tear out their throat.

I’m gonna guess he’s yet another shining example of the welfare state and what is produces. No doubt the 5th or 6th child of a single mother with 4 different baby daddies, on food stamps and no father figure anywhere to be found.

It’s sad really that minority groups actually believe that it’s the left that wants to help them when nothing could be farther from the truth.

That reminds me....about a year ago I was called for jury duty for this black kid who was involved in a police chase and of course he was fighting it saying the cop had no reason for stopping him....(yeah, right). What struck me was the fact that it was hot as blazes outside and this kid had on a long sleeve shirt with heavy jacket in court. I’ve always wondered if his lawyer told him to cover up various and probably numerous TATS on his arms. (?) Maybe it was just me, I dunno.

That's it.

In the Article it shows in a diagram that as soon as they got in the government public housing projects that's when they got killed.

Government/socialism creates this hell on Earth wherever it grows be it in public housing projects, Cambodia killing fields , USSR, everywhere. Democrats = big government = socialism = slavery.

It's true that a good deal of gold is being sold off, lowering the price, of course.

But not because of the *improving economy.* Folks are moving out of gold, and into steel and lead.
