It seems that it just goes on....
Check out this from Mississippi, this isn't the past, it's now.http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/30/justice/mississippi--hate-crime/index.html?eref=mrss_igoogle_cnn
Yeah, I get the whole "first comment awkwardness", Zoe.
In cases like this where "the evidence is the answer", I don't understand how someone can even stop for nanosecond to wonder if the teens committed the crime. It was caught on tape, there is a recorded phone conversation, and the participants have made claims in agreement with all of this, yet only ONE of the assailants is actually counted guilty, and the rest are just "suspects". What more proof do you need?! I fail to understand how people that are clearly involved in a crime get no time, but those that are just “in the wrong place at the wrong time” get years for crimes that they did not commit.
I agree with both of you. It makes absolutely no sense to charge only one with these crimes. It also makes no sense WHY THEY WOULD DO THE CRIME IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? I'm even starting to get upset at myself over this type of stuff because it no longer suprises me. Sometimes, when I read things like this, I think, "How many times am I going to read the same story?" Things like this are happening nearly all the all over the world, and it's no longer very shocking. When people read things like this and are no longer phased, that's when we know that things are ****** up. I really don't understand where all of the hate comes from. It shouldn't be natural to hate a person that much that you would want to kill them, yet for some, it is. Things like this just make me wonder... If we were all the same color, same gender, same religion... If we were all the same, would we still be this mean? I know we have that quote, "Differences didn't cause hatred. Hatred caused differences." But in situations like these... Is that always true?
Good for you guys for being brave and paying attention to the site!
OMG! Thank you Mr. Bingham! That last quote you just used is so true, and I love the way you worded it. That is my new quote of the day... Or since today is almost over, I'll have it be my quote for tomorrow! :D! Thanks!
That's no quote, that's my own amazing prose!
I agree with Shylah. I would write more but she said what i was going to say. That people all around the world should get the message. If we aren't so surprised any more then they're happening way to often.
How could you murder someone and not feel any remorse, or at least express it. If I, which I never would, killed someone, even if I hated them, I would be overcome with guilt. Their are some disgusting people in this world.
Very well said Margaret. I agree.
A former student sent me this. We did the same study of the Rwandan genocide you will be doing with me this year. After that unit a lot of those student became very interested in the child soldier abductions in Uganda. That unit was five years ago, now America is doing something...or so it appears.
