Mary, The prison population has nothing to do with which race usually commits which crime. Riley clearly stated the point I was trying to help you understand. Sorry, but the usual suspect in this type of crime is not your favorite target, which appears to be black males. I'm not making excuses for anyone. If this guy did it, I hope he pays for it through life in prison. I'll sleep fine knowing you think of me as the fool.

Alan and Riley: You seem to actually believe that I care what you think about me. I certainly don't. I don't care if you think I'm a "racist" (i am, by the way) or a "dodo bird". incidentally dodo birds went extinct because of their lack of racism toward humans. How ironic that you call me one. Your facts on white male sex offenders is incorrect. A quick look at the county sex offender registry will show you that. Enough of this. You white fools just keep on singing Kumbaya with the local 'boons. I'm sure they will spare you while they are chopping your "racist" white neighbors to pieces with machetes. My family and I will be a LONG way away. Cheers!

“Racism does not have a good track record. It's been tried out for a long time and you'd think by now we'd want to put an end to it instead of putting it under new management. ” ― Thomas Sowell
