The sheer cowardice of it is appalling
by Josh K / August 22, 2013 10:16 PM PDT

"Ooooooh, you're such a tough guy, you could take down an 88-year-old man!"

I really don't understand what's wrong with people. A few days ago, those kids in Oklahoma who were "bored" and now this.

How Pathetic!

This Man went through hell in WW2 protecting us and defending our freedom and now, holding true to form in the twilight of his life while waiting on an elderly woman to see safely home, he had to go through hell Again and this time not wounded , he was murdered for no good reason. This is apalling and should be dealt with Post Haste! I'm sure there are going to be the bleeding hearts out there saying "oh the poor black guys were brought up in a bad neighborhood and we have to understand ", but I don't ! They should be hung! I would understand that ....Digger

Hang'em from a specially built platform in front of the white house and televise it for All to see. We need to take back our neighborhoods and towns back from these thugs. I don't care what race, religion, education,nationality they are nor do I care if they're deemed insane. This has to stop. No excuses, if someone is caught red handed and without a doubt guilty...Hang'em. I know what I said isn't politically correct but I've just had enough....Digger

This is getting so weird
by Diana Forum moderator / August 23, 2013 1:34 AM PDT

There are too many kids out there that are "bored" and decide to kill someone just for fun. A couple of kids decided to beat someone to death while he was just going to his car from a convenience store here in town. It's even got a name - knockout - for what they did. Since they were only 13 and 15 when they did it, they were tried as juveniles.

I tried to teach my kids the empathize with others. When something bad happened or when they did something bad, I tried to show them to put themselves in others shoes and in the relatives of the ones that were hurt or killed. I even did it with suicides. I guess that doesn't happen anymore.

Actually, this is typical of gang initiations
by Steven Haninger / August 23, 2013 1:53 AM PDT

and sometimes called "wilding". New members are often required to commit acts of violence. Those not able to defend themselves are common targets as are those kids who've turned down recruitment efforts. Who knows if this incident is one such. Maybe the Gitmo treatment could get it out of them...waterboarding until they squealed. If it was such an act, I'd be wanting to hold the entire gang accountable and as accomplices to murder.

conspiracy to murder

accomplices both before and after the fact.

It doesn't matter why...
by Willy / August 23, 2013 3:23 AM PDT

It has become practically a repeat too often for whatever reason. The recent killing in OK. because the teens were bored, is too much. Homeless people beaten or burned because they are seen as easy targets. Locally, one person killed another(in shelter) because he wouldn't give(or loan) $.75, that's 75 cents. At the same time, you see older folks fight back with all they got and come out winners. Or have a story where the attackers are beaten back as the victim was more than they could handle. I can only for the grace of God, thank it's not I.

FYI- Someone came home and found someone had stolen the side walk way from a home. If you can't keep slabs on the ground, what is safe? -----Willy Happy

but picking on the wrong vet "could" result in the appearance of a "new body orifice" for the perp Grin


I lost my original one when I had my accident 48yrs ago and have since replaced it with a new one from the Ka-Bar company.That carved leather handle is as much a work of art as the original one and at $102 with a leather sheath,it's a bargain.

Feel lucky, punk?
by Willy / August 23, 2013 9:21 PM PDT

At times, it makes me think of the movie with C. Bronson in the "death wish type series" were in one, the old vet puts out a mess of WWII hardware to fight the neighborhood gangs. A/C'ing every punk and using old tricks like nail boards at windows, etc. to defeat them.

Being in the USMC, they issue us stuff and then take it all back. My issued knife wasn't allowed in barracks for reasons that young lads can only fathom. However, having a "Buck knife" came handy in the electrical side of electronics fixing plus maneuvers in the bush plus my John Wayne/P-38, what a little rascal. Wink


What, they took our cigarettes out of the c-rats. man that's low. -----Willy Happy non-MRE eater and tend to the garden now

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
