    Who knows why, divorce, adultry, job, not making excuses, but this is a cruel world we live in. People are losing jobs, kids being taken from a loving parent and homes due to banks like Bank of America, I refer to as “the devils advocate”. Its just a sad, sad world we live in and people lose it!

      None of what you mentioned is a reason to stab someone, and what the heck does BofA have to do with this article?

      Lori, I don’t think “ordinary” citizens go around stabbing people because they are having a hard time in life. If that’s not what you meant by your reply then I apologize. :)

      Hypocritical much? Or are you of the opinion that black people hating on white people cannot possibly be racist? Let me guess you also agree that any criticism about Obama’s politics or policies is also racist? Wake up Latosha – it’s ideas like that which keep racism alive. And it’s not just you but the “white power” idiots that post here too although I suspect they are here just to stir the pot.

      Not that any of it really matters – a life was taken and it does not matter if the victim was black, white, or whatever it’s still a horrible thing. Nor does it matter if the killer is black, white or whatever as they committed a horrible act and they need to be caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

      Does that make me racist?

        No, Latosha is simply a victim – an uber victim if you will. She has no alternative but to point fingers and blame others. She doesn’t even understand the issues around black-on-black violence, where she would do more good than stirring up people’s emotions.

        I feel sorry for her – but she is ultimately – on her own.

    this is so sad it never fails… everytime , everytime … who cares who do the most crime..??? white or black..etc.. this women life is gone.. and shes never coming back.. yall sitting on here talking about who do the most.. just sad.. i hope yall not serious..

    “LATOSHA WILSON” is a person who has posted rasism (lol) comments on several stories here, including one about meteor showers. It seems to me “LATOSHA” is probably not even a woman or black—just someone posting ridiculous comments that make no sense in order to stir the pot and get people talking about RACISM and the whole black and white problem that Americans as a whole seem to have. Let’s all have intelligent conversation and wish sweet little “LATOSHA” a great day. —-ifitquackslikeaduck….
