If this was Scandinavia, this would be HUGE news.

"Someone has been shot! What is happening to Sweden/Norway/Finland/Denmark? It's the immigrants!"

They would bring it up in Parliament. It would be the subject of talk shows 24-7.
All over the newspapers.

"We don't want to become like America!!!"

In America, it's just another day. Ain't no thang. Yawn. Happens all the time. Urban areas are the worst.

Lots of people have guns. Heck, we have more guns than people. We're proud of that.

If you only kill one person, it means you weren't trying hard enough. Try to do better next time.

I'm hoping that maybe one of the "Natives" stray bullets end up lodged in the middle of your spine.

Public Enemy1:

More likely the stray bullet will wind up in your 12-year old sister > who's turning tricks down the street...

I wish pictures were on here because tmi1 is the biggest coward I've ever seen on any blog on the Post. I wish some of you ignorant people would move to rural areas, were you have the same things happen. I went to college in the rural south, and it was'nt blacks, it was ignorant trailer park, welfare receiving whites to this shooting. Ya'll make up 63% of the nation. Stop acting like your sh@t don't stink.

Young black men = homicide.

The shooter & the victim = black men.

In most cases. In the district. Lots of evidence for that. Just cold, hard, non-racist statistics/facts.

It ain't Navajo Indians or Koreans shooting & killing each other almost every day in American's urban areas/cities.

We discuss/debate what affects us here in the Washington area. We don't live in a little town in Wyoming or Idaho.

A lot of young black men carry guns & they think the only way to resolve their problems/disputes, no matter how petty or trivial, is to shoot someone. Intelligent people don't do that. Ignorant wannabe tough guys do.

man such racism going on in these comments, hope this doesn't play out on the streets of DC, can't stand bigots black or white.

Bullets shot by the guns of black men usually hit black men. It won't be the proverbial "white racist" who kills you if you're a young black man.

So if the Imperial Wizard ain't shooting you or your black friends/family members then the only thing he can do is say something that might offend you.

Of course, if you end up in prison then a member of the Aryan Brotherhood could knife you or strangle you.

But out on the mean streets, keep your eye on the young black men (18-29), brother.
