    The innocent getting attacked how are we suppose to defend ourselves without the descriptions. Young punks getting crazy they need an ass whippin.

    Once these punks are apprehended, their sentence should include supervised work at a nursing home emptying bedpans.

      I'm not trying to be a smart ass but this punk just jumped a 93 year old women and you're suggesting a nursing home with more old folks. What he needs is a bullet in the head.

      • MTS

        A "bullet in the head" won't teach these punks and their friends anything…give them consequences that will help them become more human.

    They will not post which race did the crime. Obviously not white…….don't want the public knowing how much black on white crime there is. Would start more racial conflict. Go with statistics, facts are facts!!

      So race doesn't matter when a Caucasian goes on a shooting rampage — statistically that's who commits most of that type of crime — the only thing that concerns people is their 'mental state'. Closet bigots…

        Race matters when perpetrators are on the loose after a crime like this, and a detailed description can help in the prevention of further attacks.
