    This is closer. If everybody in the whole neighborhood is black -- because apartheid, tacit or explicit -- then everybody hit by gunfire will of course be black. And if chilluns is playin in da street -- because nice safe places to play are not available in that 'hood -- because apartheid -- dem chilluns is gonna get shot up.

    I think (or believe) that we are all racists to some extent. But we are also able to rise above that primitive train of thought once we confront that deficiency in ourselves.

    Maybe. The evidence is weak. The aspiration is great.

    Incomprehensible that the shooter will not face charges. Does everyone in Florida answer their door carrying a loaded firearm? Is it OK to shoot someone for jumping out of the bushes in Florida? Is "oh, he startled me" a defense against a charge of manslaughter or negligent homicide anywhere in the world except Florida? Is there no requirement to be sure of your target when firing a weapon in Florida?
    This is a tragedy and a travesty.

    I wonder what Halloween will be like in Florida.

    In the first place, it's not an accident. The homeowner clearly intended to shoot whoever was in front of him. It might be a case of mistaken identity contributing to manslaughter.

    IMHO.

    Parks reportedly told police the gun is not normally loaded when he carries it.


    Shee-it! If I've told it once I've told it a thousand times. If you want a lift, don't turn up loaded.

    I'd be happy for all the dogs to "accidentally" shoot all the gun owners.

    The laughable and telling quote was "the family vows to steer clear of trains in the future". Loaded firearms in the passenger compartment, no problem.

    That's old news; there are more mass shootings per year in the USA than there are days in the year. Gotta keep up, don'tcha know.

    It all makes it a bit difficult to see when exactly the next Civil war kicks off.
