    The gap is widening between rich and poor. This makes more & more poor people...people who are more desperate to provide for their own families.

    This sounds like another push for socialism . . . . . . . again!!! Do you know this "victims" criminal background? Would you even accept the theory his "background" played right into the event, NOT his social standing?!!!

    Crime follows poverty. Educated people, who have more of what they need to get through life, commit less crime...especially violent crime. Or, you could just keep complaining about how many jails we need to build...how there's a revolving door for criminals...how prisoners get probation so quickly...etc.

    The gap is widening between rich and poor. This makes more & more poor people...people who are more desperate to provide for their own families. If you don’t care, you may want to start hiring your own personal 24*7 security team...

    I'll assume the other story has been updated and reworded since it does not say "teen".

    However, you seem to be the one stirring things. you jump right past the fact that one is an AP article and the other is from a local news source, and right into whatever agenda you have on your mind.

    Its odd how in this story he is a man. But the 18 year old who was shot and killed bya cop in MO is called a "teen" in that story. The media knows how to stir that pot of you know what dont they
