Not from where I am sitting.


Maybe it's time for a new hemmoroid donut?

Seriously, though, I haven't read all his posts in the thread, just his first and his mention about the family getting coverage for being not a standard, colored minority family. To each their own, I suppose.

I took it as they got coverage for being jews.
And if you are alluding that a minority that is alledged to have control over the media got extra media attention, I have to suspect you buy itno the jewish media BS.

I don't. Not sure where you got that from. Certainly wasn't one of my posts.

Sorry dude, That should have been "his".  I was talking about why I thought Latinwolf was a douche...

mooseyfate: Latinwolf: BarkingUnicorn: Latinwolf: And this whole situation receives more attention (from the media) than it should because of the background of the victims.
I don't think so.  More people are pissed off by reckless drivers than by Hassidic Jews.
"Investigators said Mr. Acevedo was going just over 69 miles per hour down Kent Avenue - over twice the legal limit - when the borrowed BMW that he was driving slammed into the side of a livery cab carrying the couple. Witnesses told prosecutors that the BMW sped past cars recklessly and, as it passed a fire truck, could be heard accelerating."
Never said people were pissed off at them being Hassidic, only that the media seemed to be more concerned because the family was Hassidic instead of something else like Latino, Black, Italian, Chinese, etc.
Your perception seems skewed, but I can't exactly accuse you of being one of "those guys" since you haven't made a peep about the killer being named Acevedo, which doesn't exactly sound Swedish. I guess... maybe just be thankful they aren't focusing on the heritage of the accused? Or just keep doing what you do. Either way, you're not being a total douche, so more power to you.


Nope, the accused was a scumbag who had no business being out on the roads in the first place.  I don't see anything that would suggest that he would have been treated by the media differently had he been from a different background.

Begoggle: False information in MY Fark headline?
What a shock.


Iknowrite?

For those who don't know how a Grand Jury works, and I can see there are some in this thread who don't know how shoe laces work, The porsecutor goes to them with his evidence and says "I want to go to trial and charge this guy with X". Well the Grand Jury can hand down an indictment , or tell the prosecutor to go get stuffed. In rare cases, like this, The Grand Jury can also decide that the defendant should not only stand trial for X, but also Y,Z and H-J.
