Trailltrader: To quote from Ben Franklin:I wish that the bald eagle had not been chosen as the representative of our country, he is a bird of bad moral character, he does not get his living honestly, you may have seen him perched on some dead tree, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the labor of the fishing-hawk, and when that diligent bird has at length taken a fish, and is bearing it to its nest for the support of his mate and young ones, the bald eagle pursues him and takes it from him....Besides he is a rank coward; the little kingbird, not bigger than a sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the district. He is therefore by no means a proper emblem for the brave and honest. . . of America.. . . For a truth, the turkey is in comparison a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America . . . a bird of courage, and would not hesitate to attack a grenadier of the British guards, who should presume to invade his farmyard with a red coat on.So I'm with the kids on this one
Nabb1: Why do morons film these things on their cell phones?

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Who said mugging was a myth?
Semper IvXx: That should get some bites. Another successful Fark headline.
fatcurlytoes: I like how the stock photo they used is of a white person's wrists in handcuffs. Uh, no.
Caelistis: CygnusDarius:So, in retrospect, as the line between the wealthy and the poor turns more and more into a canyon, expect more of these attacks, and more Zimmermans, and more Rush Limbaughs, and more hate spewed until we're all up against each other's throats.The answer is self-evident; empower more people like Zimmerman and begin culling. You'll have less first generation problems and with their, the poor blacks, declining breeding numbers from systematic removal, you'll have exponentially less problems as the generations progress from enacting the cull. As a result, you'll also have less expenditures for social programs and jails as well, so we'll all see quite a savings.

rebelyell2006: The knock-out game is totally last year. If they want real street cred, they have to play the natural gas game: holding down old white people and farting on them. That is all this year.
Pumpernickel bread: Given the color of the assailants and the victim, I am surprised this is national news. Now, if it had been the other way around....
doglover: Nabb1: Why do morons film these things on their cell phones?You want to sleep well at night? You want to have a moment's peace again? Stop thinking about it.Because if you think about it, you realize that police are actually not very good at finding criminals. It's always the criminal's own stupidity that gets them caught. Like the guys who climb up, with no mask, and disable security cams. Or the ones who rob their neighbor's house in the snow. And of course people who forget that the only way two people can keep a secret is if one of them is dead.But the smart criminals, they can get away with it for a long time. Often forever. That guy who had all those girls in his basement dungeon in Ohio? The cops talked to him when it originally happened. Never suspected. Serial killers, or at least a lot of killers, haunt certain highways in places like Alaska. We don't even know who or what's going on, just that there's a lot of dead bodies there over the years. In Fayette County PA, the Police call it Fayette Nam because the forest to building ratio is such that the majority of the state is unpatrolable. There was a man spotted by three different train conductors carrying a woman's body in the woods. Nothing ever came of it. And the mob? There's Mexican hit men with 800+ kills. I don't even know 800 people on facebook.It's only the stupid criminals who get caught. The really dangerous smart criminals, the Al Capones, usually manage to remain free. Capone himself went down because of his arrogance more than anything. If he had been less flamboyant Eliot Ness never would have locked horns with him.Now that's the human race is miserably illogical, cruel, self-destructive and stupid.
Death Whisper: A horde of future democrats beating and robbing a disabled veteran? No way!!
Panty Sniffer: fatcurlytoes: I like how the stock photo they used is of a white person's wrists in handcuffs. Uh, no.Maybe the teenagers were white. The article does not specify the race of the teenagers.
neongoats: So getting mugged in a fairly normal, predictable nature by shiatty teenagers is a myth?Hop on off your cross there, right wingidiots.
Ready-set: neongoats: So getting mugged in a fairly normal, predictable nature by shiatty teenagers is a myth?Hop on off your cross there, right wingidiots.The 'kids' chose him because of his race. It's hypocrisy.
ciberido: Ready-set: neongoats: So getting mugged in a fairly normal, predictable nature by shiatty teenagers is a myth?Hop on off your cross there, right wingidiots.The 'kids' chose him because of his race. It's hypocrisy.If indeed there is evidence that the victim was chosen because of his race, then prosecute it as a hate crime. If it can be proven in court to be a hate crime, then sentence them accordingly. What exactly is the problem? Where is the hypocrisy?
Starshines: Pumpernickel bread: Given the color of the assailants and the victim, I am surprised this is national news. Now, if it had been the other way around....Interesting how you observed something that disproves your biases, yet used it to convince yourself that they're right.
Not a hate crime!
