    Well I am going to take a different view. I have no problem with the media or anyone describing a suspect on the loose including the color of their skin. After all the public needs to know as much about the person as possible. Once the they are no longer on the loose then I think the media should not discuss the person in custody skin color. Once the person is in custody it shouldn't (I said shouldn't) matter what color their skin is. What matters then is that they get processed through the justice system just like everyone else.
    What if all we have today is what we gave thanks for yesterday?

    The initial AP article that I saw did not include pictures.

    In Sandy Hook they didn't have to mention it because they pretty much knew right away who the guy was... His face was all over the news.

    In CO, they may or may not have mentioned the shooters race, but the media was very quick to try to portray the nut as some kind of right wing fanatic... When that was quickly proven to be false as well. Standard operating procedure

    They had pictures of the WRONG Sandy Hook shooter up all over the news within a few hours of the act. They had his brothers pic plastered everywhere!

    My, my...don't we tho. How condescending. You truly are a one-of-a-kind, better-than-all, reminiscient of your messiah. Trust me when I say, how you constantly "reveal yourself" is NEVER inadvertant...It must be hard to be humble when one is as great as you see yourself.

    Wonder if the 'story' will even make the news on Al Sharpton's MSNBC afternoon pile of crap? Since the shooter was a big fan of some rapper that sang about the fun of killing people, Al should be proud of him coming from the 'hood'.

    These hoodlums should be tried as adults, but the gun control advocates are too busy slamming the NRA for what happened, showing how totally idiotic they are, and how the liberal nation has regressed into becoming a crowd of mental midgets.

    On one of these killers face book page he said he dropped 2 last night wonder who the second one is he's referring to? The picture now going around on cnn shows two black kids and a white kid this is not the same picture posted above which is correct? It doesn't matter what color they were it matters that they were bored and killed someone not in self defense just for something to do.

    Correct, we as a nation have lost sight of the fact it is the behavior that is unacceptible!
