    Ridestsu, poor guy, I hope you are ok.

    If they were born in America they are AMERICANS not African Americans. Simple as that. My ancestors are from Germany, I don't call myself German American.

    People live in TODAY'S world not in the distant past.

    No offence meant of coarse.

    Great idea! Of coarse that is AFTER they are beaten into a coma first.

    As a bleeding heart, I cannot condone beating them into a coma. It's dehumanizing for the person doing and the person receiving the beating. As a practical person, I don't think any of us want to pay any extra medical costs for them and, furthermore, they'll be far more productive workers if not comatose.

    The penal system in the U.S. IMHO is a complete joke. We wrist slap criminals. Unless we start dealing out VERY SERIOUS penalties crime will continue to get worse.

    There is no real insentive for criminals to stop, the penalties are FAR too lame. Plus they have too much freedom in jail.

    If there is a mesage i would spread, it would be this.

    "Don't answer violence with violence."
    or rather: "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind"

    The message I would spread is, "Do unto others as they would do unto you...only do it to them first."

    Doing it to "them" first has a pretty poor track record. Not only would someone land in jail for punching a potential mugger before the mugging, it fails at the international level too. Our pre-emptive war in Iraq is only the most recent example, but Japan's attack at Pearl Harbor and Germany's invasion of (insert country name here) didn't help them. Unless you go back to the point of view some had a decade or two ago that Japan had actually won WWII because they pretty much owned us.
