      wow these are some tough remarks yes they are stupid, and if you look up the definition of the N word is says as dumb person go figure I must admit that I have met some fairly decent black people in my lifetime then on the other hand you have stories like this that just makes me wonder… they are a race living in confusion taken from slavery and made to become a functioning part of society yet, most do not have the intelligence it takes to lead a productive life it is eithe the way they were raised and I am not talking about the manors part most of their parents if there were 2 in the home were off working or drug dealing. it is sad our society has to endure their weakness with being afraid of all of them, because of a bad few

        What about the white kids who go and shoot up high schools, or commit bombings because they’re so twisted. Could it have something to do wirh the Catholic Priest who they confide in are the same ones raping their but holes. So before you go pointing fibgers, make sure your hands are clean!

    Yeah they weren’t very bright here and do belong to be behind bars but your racial comments are NOT necessary. White folks can be just as stupid. Maybe you all should think before ya speak!

    well for the most part all races have the same problem they either shooting up schools or running meth labs blowing up their kids homes so to say that the black race should be in cages where should the other races be we all need to do a check the facts before we speak because every race has bad in it not just blacks ok read the paper look at the news ok fyi

    All I see is racist remarks. A couple of teens rob a bank and you think they deserve to be locked up for the rest of there lifes. What if these were your children you all wouldn’t be saying that, you will saying they need a second chance. What about when they blow up buildings and shoot up 10-15 people, do they deserve to be locked u forever then?
