This is really messed up. if three white kids stabbed a black lady I'm pretty sure everyone would be screaming "it's a hate crime". I haven't heard anything about them going around robbing any black people. and at what point are we going to start holding the parents of minors responsible for their heinous actions. I'm not sure how it works there but I do know that when a juvenile gets in trouble in most states they go after the parents in some way shape or form. This is exactly what Trump is trying to stop. we need to create better environments for people to learn the correct way to live in what not to do to others. A woman lost her life over the property in her purse and her phone. In for what because some greedy children wanted to take her stuff. This is absolutely sickening and this just shows how deep some of these issues go

You have to remember, this supporter of degeneracy was there to buy dope from those she wished to suppress. Who's the victim? Certainly not the priviliged SJW, who by nature, approached the youths in question because she assumed stereotypes.

@Chief Tahchawwickah You're still making generalizations. Why does skin color matter to you? If whites held all the power, then there would be no elected officials from other ethnicities. Congressmen, mayors, police chiefs, et al. Stop looking at people by skin color only and start looking at them as people.

When I was 13 or 14 years old in the 1960s robbing someone, let alone stabbing someone, was so far away from any thoughts I ever had. I pray that the family of the girl finds peace one day. Also, I pray for the family of the boy that they will find answers as to why this boy did what he did. So sad.

That is standard practice for Canadian media. Only white people, and white names are ever mentioned in Canadian media. If the criminal is black or middle eastern, our media will not mention it at all, dont believe me? Just look at CBC's, or Globals news sites and read the articles regarding violence, theft, murder etc, they won't mention names or ethnicity in any article, unless that person is white of coarse, and if they're white there'll even be a picture of the person, if they're black there will only be a description of their clothes and maybe their age

jettrod69 Month ago
Try following Candian media. The only time a persons name or skin colour is ever mentioned is if the person is white, tho occasionally they will mention the name if it sounds like it could be spanish. Just check CBC or Global's news, they'll give a complete description of a suspects clothes, age, size etc, and even say police are looking for witnesses, but they won't dare mention skin colour or name if it sounds like the person os from the middle east or Africa. They also don't allow comments on news stories unless the perp is white. Don't believe me? Just go to their news sites and read it for yourself. We always know if the criminal is middle eastern or black, cuz they won't give their name, even tho they'll describe perfectly every other detail. Its quite racist, but in Canada since only white people are racist, and because every white person is racist according to our media, this is considered perfectly acceptable

@Hugh Jass According to science, the human brain goes through its final phase of pruning at age 25. At this juncture, your habits, personality, dispositions, and eccentricities become somewhat permanent. I say somewhat permanent because the brain cells and human attitudes are what you'll say plastic: they are malleable. Are age fourteen, the human specie lacks the concept of what Self is, and whether the Self is moral or immoral.

Tragic story and horrible crime, but trying 13 & 14 year old kids as adults, is disgusting.
Is that a thing?
@Eric Devito Put your money where your mouth is.. why don't you (sponsor) these kids if they get tried as juveniles? when they get out at 18.. move in with you and your family? you can be responsible for them? for probably ten year probation? How's that work out? I think it's a pretty good idea? you sponsor them and you be responsible for them. And I think the taxpayer should kick in some money to help you out taking care of these murderous kids. I'm totally in 100%
Is that a thing?
@Eric Devito I'm pretty sure My police department does? now they're wearing body cam so they can film it and then my wife can hire a lawyer so she can be a millionaire.. while I'm making delicious tomatoes.. so what's your Stupid point?
