    Where is the Nanny Cam video that shows a black intruder savagely attacking a white New Jersey mother in front of her 3 year old daughter?? If you would consider it too graphic – what about the Rodney King video that was shown thousands of times?
    Why is there always a double standard when it comes to reporting news? The never ending leftist bias in this country will only lead us to an over crowded, third world society, with a Communist style government.
