I'm honestly surprised this hasn't happened more. What do you expect when all illegals (mostly Mexicans) are painted as some sort of subhuman scum. Just look at all the garbage topics here at CD.

No doubt they did learn some of this from their parents, but I wouldn't be surprised if some of their feelings came from dumb, general stereotypes of all illegals being gang bangers, drug pushers, and child predators.

It is just sad to see people actually try to justify killing like this.

We need to stop all the hate-casting going on in the media, especially the "we are at war with illegals i.e. Hispanics" talk. More illegals/Hispanics will be targeted and more people with futures will be placed in jail over something which has been elevated by media, internet, parents, politicians and ignorance.

Do illegals bear responsibility for their own murders while in this country? No, that is not legal or civilized at all.

You think they should expect to be killed?

Aren't you Hispanic Guy? If someone kills you, do you think you should be held responsible because of being hispanic like illegals? Otherwise you would understand.

No, but they do bear the responsibility of being here in the first place.

I was talking to an illegal from Mexico City a couple of months ago, he realized that his presence here was lowering wages for American workers AND causing animosity from the natives. Certainly he's not the ONLY one that's smarter than a peyote button?

If a large corporation goes under, who holds most the blame? The CEO or the guy who cleans the toilets?

I don't blame poor Mexicans for wanting to come here and make a better life for their family. If I were in their shoes, I'd try to do the same thing.

Then you have no sense of 'right and wrong', either...

Otherwise, your family would understand.

It could happen, every Hispanic person could be a target.

Wow, one case - ONE. Compared to how many murdering illegal immigrants and children of illegal immigrants?

How many US citizens are killed/murdered DAILY due to the actions of illegal immigrants in this so called 'sovereign' nation, whether it be murder, vehicular manslaughter, etc.? 8? 12? Maybe even more?

I think you're missing my point. You're looking to ascertain responsibility for this ONE act. I'm trying to show that this ONE ACT is part of a much larger picture, one that has seemingly redefined Hispanics from Americans to illegal aliens. At this time about half of the Hispanics in this country are here illegally. When I was growing up that percentage was MUCH smaller, maybe 5%. The presence of millions of Hispanics (mostly from Mexico) who have NO RIGHT to be here has caused a backlash that affects ALL Hispanics.

I knew this was coming a long time ago, I knew that Hispanic-Americans would be put at risk, and that the rednecks and racists would be drawn to it like moths to the flame.

Anyone that DIDN'T realize it wasn't paying attention.
