17 yr old Muslim girl beaten to death with bats...

I hope you're all okay.

I hope you're not shaken to the point where you can no longer stand to be strong.

I hope you remember your greatest strength.

Love.

I hope you love today. I hope you share love today. I hope you are loved today.

Lend a hand. Lend a hug. Share a kiss. Tell a joke. Be human.

Go and love.

If there are any words from religion that are most important, it's just these three.

Love One Another.

For her sake. For the millions of others that will or have ever died because of a world of confused hate.

Go love one another. Don't let love die under the foot of this evil.

I love you.

4. we have to catch all these people driving around looking for 'marks'. They're all over my Tx. area.

they used to call the cars/trucks of (usually) youths, teens out 'wilding'.

People in my area are afraid to walk alone to the store, to work, to my local school. Not many own cars here.

Within the past year, I've heard people shout nigger more then once!, seen people throw stuff at walkers and had one 8 year old girl walking to school- come up to me while I was in front yard, crying asking for help a driver tried to grab her.

14. The Virginia police don't know if it's a hate crime

as if beating a human being to death with baseball bats is something done randomly for fun or to rob someone.

11. The Youngbloods - Get Together



Love is but a song to sing
Fear's the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Some may come and some may go
We shall surely pass
When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)

12. Get accustomed to it, folks . . .

 

. . . this is Trump's America.

He has unleashed to dark, evil forces that have always lain just below the surface. He has now made it okay to attack people with whom we disagree . . . remember his rallies where he urged his supporters to "rough 'em up," "get him out of here," "I'll pay your legal fees" . . . remember that?

We decent people ignore those comments but there are evil sonsofbitches out there who take Trump at his word.

In the mid-60's, when I was in college in Alabama, I was the night announcer at a local radio station. The old guy who was the night watchman at the complex where the station was located would stop in to talk as he made his rounds. He was proud of his membership in the Klan; carried a pistol on his hip and an ax handle in his truck (hickory ax handle makes a great club). He was one of the Klansmen who burned a bus carrying "Freedom Riders" near Anniston, AL.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_Riders

I don't recall the details, but, after one of the famous murders in Alabama where civil rights workers were shot to death, he explained things to me.

He told me that George Wallace, because he was governor, had to be nice to these "n###er lovers" because of his position. But, really, George wanted them dead. So, we Klansmen are doing George's dirty work for him.

Nothing has changed. The knuckle-draggers and mouth-breathers are doing Trump's dirty work for him.

Which is why I now have a loaded .45 under the front seat of my truck, my Mini Cooper, and my wife's Ford Explorer.

20. Schoolmate

She was a schoolmate of 2 of my children. We got an email last night from the principal letting us know that we would be hearing some bad news in the media. This part of Fairfax is very multicultural. It was either a hate crime or possibly a gang initiation killing because MS -13 is very active in this area. Either way it is a horrific crime.

25. Not a hate crime? NOT A HATE CRIME?

What the bloody fucking hell ELSE would it be?

I totally hold Trump responsible for making it OK for people to act like this.

28. Trump is indeed responsible for anti-Muslim sentiment...

...but this sort of knee-jerk reaction "it must be a hate crime" is a little presumptuous, don't you think? From the article, it seems equally plausible right now that this was just a murderous thug who was set off by a road rage incident.

31. Well, then, how about a broader definition of a hate crime?

An act committed by someone with a hate/rage filled heart who behaves inexcusably and unjustifiably. Rational people with decent hearts do not behave this way, no matter what. This had to be a hate-filled person.

I would feel the same way no matter who his victim was.

29. Hmmm

 

I'm not sure how much of the young Hispanic vote Trump got out of VA. I'm not even sure that a guy named Darwin Torres would hold a favorable opinion of Trump.

Maybe we were wrong to jump to conclusions on this one in particular.

There are people in this country who are Muslims. There are people in this country who are victims of senseless violence. Sometimes there is overlap between these two groups based on circumstances other than the victim's religion.
