“I hope whoever did that gets charched the increased heating bills from those who now don't have shade. And, that bike was not worth stealing! not a road bike or a fixie = practically no value.
While yes, they were all black, crime is a POOR thing, not a black thing. Crime rates closely mirror poverty rates for a given demographic.”

“Actually, crime rates among blacks are much higher per capita. Further, it has been proven that those with a lower IQ have a higher propensity for crime.
The reason these people are "poor" is due to a longstanding relationship with poor decision making. Generations and generations of bad examples, if you will. It's a lifestyle.
People like you make excuses which only fans the flame of crime and dependency.”

“They were extremism muslims, not muslim extremists. These people are like all other extremists in their actions, not like all other muslims. Don't deny the mosque.”

“extremists using religion to justify their actions. i personally don't think they were real muslims, anymore than eric rudolph and the guys who shoot doctors too, and that "cell" who were planning on attacking law enforcement people are real christians we have our own share of such people here too.”

“Don't dare deny the mosque/ Muslim community center under the guise that it is something evil or that the people behind it are an any way untrue to peace. Peace”

“I saw many posts just before Sept. 11 stating Never forget 9/11. I wholeheartedly agree. Never have we all been touched like that. But for all the yeahoos to be categorically blame Muslims is too lame for a person with a brain and a heart to bear. Are these people the Christians they claim to be? Or is it beyond that. It's akin to trying to blame Timothy McVeigh and his sickness on all the 'Good' Christians”

“I don't see a semantic difference either way. They were extremists, and they were muslim. No matter which you put first, they are two independent facts that to not imply the other. There are non-muslim extremists and there are muslims who are not extremists. It doesn't matter what order you put the words in, because in either case it is dishonest and ignorant to generalize an entire category based on half of the phrase.”
“At least people are doing something . When were people mobilized in the real fight for our morality and freedom. and not corporate funded morality.
