Where is the march for this man's father who was murdered responding to his daugher's plea that there was a black man breaking in?

His father was white and a black man broke into the home and murdered his father to help his daughter and he went free? This guy couldn't handle his father being murdered and his girlfriend committing suicide in front of him and their daughter.What some people have to face in this life. Satan gone into high gear.

Al Sharpton isn't going to march for any white man whose father was murdered by a black man and no arrest.

It's fascinating to follow some of these links. In this case, one of the most common claims of the commenters on The Blaze is that President Obama is trying to "ignite a race war".

Anyone who would make such a claim is at best an idiot.

If Fox News stopped censoring such offensive words we'd hear the usual cries of bigotry and racism from certain Leftist quarters, but because it's CNN they are merely preserving "journalistic integrity"

If a fox news commentator said that, the right would say its ok but since CNN said it,it's bad!!!

Since she warned viewers what was gonna be said and the fact that all she did was quote the source, then its all right, maybe CNN should have edit the report.

They have been sued for lying. They have said they have no responsibility to tell the truth.

Jane Akre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Media Can Legally Lie
***During their appeal, FOX asserted that there are no written rules against distorting news in the media. They argued that, under the First Amendment, broadcasters have the right to lie or deliberately distort news reports on public airwaves. Fox attorneys did not dispute Akre’s claim that they pressured her to broadcast a false story, they simply maintained that it was their right to do so.

I don't doubt that the 19-year-old shooter, if he is guilty, feels bad about the death of his father. If you read the news reports, though, it sounds as though the father was the aggressor in the confrontation that resulted in his death.

Either way, if he was killing random black people as a way to get revenge because a black person killed his father that would justify the conclusion that the killings were racially motivated?

Does anyone disagree?

Now that statement is making something up. Any time the left can misquote or misrepresent a statement made on Fox, they jump with glee and attack. No matter if it is a direct, provable quote from the left or not.
