Hoodies, someone named Muhammad, and someone who looks like Obama’s son.

One of those things is absolutely guaranteed to have been involved. I’m just saying...

Well Zimmerman is locked up, so it wasn’t him. . . . .

According to Rahm, it's Daley's fault.

I simply do not understand those who insist Mr. Martin had no choice but to respond violently to Mr. Zimmerman paying attention to him.

There is too much carnage in places like Detroit and Chicago due to ultimately trivial offensives being taken as mortal threats.

Those who justify the violence by Mr. Martin, condone all the senseless violence in our cities.

Here's a simple proposal that will have Obama seeing his brother or sister in every victim and of course Sharpton and Jackson will be there everywhere.

This disclosure affects matters of race relations so the problem is the MSM will use their patented NBC-style cherry-bomb journalism. To wit,

If at first you don't make it seethe try, try anything to make it seethe.

Oh hell, I'll just go ahead and do it.. flap my little butterfly's wing:

The killers have all been whites in blackface.

In New Orleans they solved this problem with a huge flood, much like a Bible story - how will Chicago solve their problem?

According to the useless, pandering Chicago police chief/political hack McCarthy, black on black shootings are Sara Palin’s fault. According to Rahm Emmanuel, the shootings are former Mayor Daley's fault. Nearly all these shootings are on the city's South Side, the Obamas’ stamping grounds. Several weeks back, Michelle said she was raising her daughters with “South Side values.”

Perhaps Mayor Rahm and Police chief McCarthy need to take Barry's “stimulus” and embark on wall-to-wall anger management classes for Barry's and Holder's people?

“Can't we all just be friends” should be the mantra. Once more, folks, sit around the campfire, hold hands, and sing “Kumbayah” together. No more shootings, muggings, armed robberies, rapes — just good, happy comradeship. Sing it, comrades! Happy, happy. Joy, joy.
