It should have been 2 counts. One for knocking him to the ground and one for kicking the child while he was down.

I'm glad they ruled that way. If you commit a crime with a gun in your hand, you take your chances, and he lost.

Amen Teddy. The NAACP is concerned about one thing.....race baiting. Race baiting helps them recruit more members, get more political influence and collect more fees. Blacks need to understand there are consequences to your actions. I especially loved the bogus claims about how blacks are expelled more, go to prison more, etc....there is a very simple reason for that. If there are say 20 robberies in a month, and 19 are done by blacks, then who shows up in jail? Don't fight, rob, do drugs, rape and steal at a rate that is way out of proportion for your share of the population. Blacks make up just 13 percent of the population but are responsible for over 50 percent of violent crime.

These girls have consequences to their actions. It's ridicuouls to read that eight of them were involved. They are in high school, not elementary. The NAACP wants to give them a slap on the wrist! These girls should be grateful they have free schooling, however they go to school and disrespect each other, ruining it for kids who actually go to learn and not get involved wth the latest drama! They are very luck to be able to attend alternative schools and not made to be home schooled since they want to act like Neanderthals out in public! So yes NAACP let's continue to let them get away with crime so they can continue the foot steps of others. That's why we have so much violence as it is because these kids have NO role models! But we don't want to punish them when deserved! We have had 2 jewelry store robberies, two restaurant robberies, and now a robbery today and a auto store. What does the NAACP have to say about that!? Not to mention the two women who just recently got RAPED!!! Do the crime you pay the time regardless of COLOR !

How about you post the numbers pertaining to the line workers at each plant? When you factor in the huge salarys of the upper echelon, there is no way to tell who makes what.These numbers mean nothing to the average working person.
