There's something shady going in the Woodlawn/Mt. Vernon area in the past week. A body found floating in a pond last Wednesday, the baseball bat homicide last Friday, now this.

Well, with Obama looking to set the 9/11 perpetrators free, any bad guy out there has to figure, with Eric Holder running things, it's open season. What's the big deal, right? They aren't criminals, they're black dread locked males that had a bad childhood.

WoW!!! Obama must be doing a good job, I've never seen so many constipated conservatives blame someone for all the ills of this world, he must be the Anti-Christ...oh I forget, he's the Black Anti-Christ.

Ugh. Racism? Really? Grow up.

It is troubling that the racists have "Conservative" and "Christian" in their screen names. WWJD???

I know: how about not be a racist!
