    “Those people”???? Really Craig? What would you have said if a white guy had shot him? Ignorant racist people making me sick

      • Manalishi.

        Craig,, Sarah could have asked you to clarify. But there was a knee jerk. Remember, only dogs hear dog whistles.

      • Neko

        You said, “you know who I’m talking about”. So actually youre saying we should know by the words, “those people”. Idiot

      • Neko

        @athynz…he was already asked to clarify by Manalishi, and his response was just, “you know who I’m talking about”. Don’t expect much intelligence there

      • Manalishi.

        Easy there Neko. I did not ask Craig to clarify. Pay attn please. some teach. some learn, some will never learn. most actually just watch and refuse to speak. Welcome aboard.

        I prefer to leave an open end to those that should clarify. Save the special TKO to those that deserve it and the obvious. Manlaw applies.

    • Neko

      @Manalishi…It doesn’t matter whether you asked or not for him to clarify, because that’s exactly what he was trying to do with his vague answer. Don’t play stupid.

    “Those people” would refer to those peopke who are breaking into peopkes homes and shooting them in the middle of the night…in this instance and in all the others i read and have experienced personally it would be a black person…does that clarify it enough for you? And it’s not racist race baters…it’s the truth

    • Tim

      If you read, “officers do not believe this was a random act”. No motive as of yet Maria, so watch what you say. “Democrats”, as an idiot likes to use loosely, may be offended. They may even bring up “those people” that you read about breaking in your house at night taking your kids that aren’t “black”!

    How do you know it was a black man if he was wearing all black? I mean, did someone cut the lights on at 3am? Regardless, I feel sorry for the victim and his family.

      “The shooting suspect was a black man wearing all black, according to police.” Great question. Police statement is all that’s available. If it’s wrong, blame them.
