Oh snap!! Well said Airbornemonty... well said.. God forbid the truth not be put out there without fear of being accused of racial profiling. Lets call a thing a thing.. .. if they were black, they were black, if they were white, they were white, if they were green they were green, but put it out there so we know and stop trying to avoid people flipping out b/c it was pointed out that they were black...

If WRAL wasn't so intent on avoiding imagined confrontation, they would print what the other web sites are printing and that is that the hoodlums that invaded the home and shot the child were African-American.

Don't they have any information on the suspects? A description of what they were wearing, what they looked like, their race? What time did these 4 break ins take place? What are the locations of the other crimes? How about the car? It would help if there was at least some information for people to go on.

So why so tight lipped on the description of the suspects? How they looked and what they were driving would help.

The immigration status doesn't matter at the moment.... a child is on life support and I pray the child will be ok, and the hideous person who did this is caught and dealt with properly. No parent should have to go through this nightmare, regardless of their race and status.

And in case you're not smart enough to know, I'll tell you, if all the migrant workers went home, you'd starve. Phillip PJM

These are migrant workers, they come here to work and then...they go home. Whomever is preying on them should be, well, put away. No better word for it...they do not deserve to live. It is my opinion only, but these creeps are really bad to shoot a kid, and legal or illegal, they need to go away forever. This is not the way any, and I mean ANY society should be. One does not prey on the less fortunate in society. I think they may be a psycho or sociopath, maybe just immature, it does not matter. Do away with them. They deserve it.

If they are here legally, then I feel bad for them and the child. If not, I feel bad for the child, but not for the parents. "-quote
Perfect example of why this world sucks....get some help and DO try to get out of the basement more

"If they are here illlegally...." Regardless of their immigration status, their 4 year old was shot and may die. Nationality or status does not enter into it unless there is something bad wrong with you. And in case you're not smart enough to know, I'll tell you, if all the migrant workers went home, you'd starve.
