I'd like to know. I'm not so sure I have a clue, but I'd like to know what you are thinking.

Bottom line:

Close/lock at least our southern border (which, BTW, is occurring as we speak), cancel birthright citizenship (for those US born children with both parents here illegally), enforce employer sanctions laws nationwide which would include punishing the enablers of said illegals--------including churches, etc.

I will add cut off all freebies and welfare type benefits as well. Once they have no jobs abd no freebies most will head home.

Comprehension? Try reading the article, genius.

Despite witness reports that the attackers yelled ethnic slurs, authorities say the beating wasn't racially motivated

Quote:
From what we understand right now, it wasn't racially motivated," Nestor said. "This looks like a street fight that went wrong."
Quote:
Despite the witness statements, Borough Manager Joseph Palubinsky said he doesn't believe Ramirez's ethnicity was what prompted the fight: "I have reason to know the kids who were involved, the families who were involved, and I've never known them to harbor this type of feeling."
Aw man, such bull. "Ive never known them to harbor this type of feeling. Sure, they might have been capable of brutally beating a man to death, stomping his head til he foams at the mouth..but killing him because he was Mexican? No way!"


This town is clearly becoming a hotbed for anti-Mexican sentiment..there wasn't any before, and now that they are there, things are getting hot. This is that tension exploding in the murder of a man who was outnumbered. Theyre trying to cover it up..trying to say it was a fight. I have a gut feeling these teens were provoking him, and he defended himself, then they attacked him like a pack of inbred dogs.

And for all the people getting all hot and bothered at the suggestion that it was whites who commited this crime(even suggesting it couldve been Blacks??), lets look at this towns demographics.

Quote:
As of the census[2] of 2000, there were 5,624 people, 2,649 households, and 1,380 families residing in the borough. The population density was 3,710.7 people per square mile (1,428.6/km˛). There were 3,339 housing units at an average density of 2,203.1/sq mi (848.2/km˛). The racial makeup of the borough was 97.40% White, 0.34% African American, 0.25% Native American, 0.36% Asian, 0.04% Pacific Islander, 1.01% from other races, and 0.60% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 2.76% of the population.

Ain't kidding you....

Besides, this doesn't reflect American society at all. Like other killings discussed on this forum recently, this was "gang-related". I seem to recall a lot of mention that "you can't blame a whole group for the actions of a gang"...(I THINK that's how it was explained)....
I blame the "group" that committed this crime. I should make a post on how White people are ethnic cleansing Mexican workers, and use this post as evidence. Of course thats ridiculous, but imagine the reaction vs. the reaction if the same thing was said about Mexicans on Americans or Mexicans on Blacks.

Doing great! It's easier to digest sarcasm when you don't have to skim through and decipher a massive paragraph to get the punchline.

Sometimes, you have to reply to a ridiculous comment with another one.
