    I knew it would be a white-on-white crime. What??? No I didn’t. What starts with an M, ends with an H, and has ET in the middle?

      Oh they were a few racist spews in the Whiner’s Den assuming that the two involved were of brown skin races. Don’t kid yourself, when pictures are involved the racists shut up but when pictures or names aren’t involved they’re all over it like flies on shit.

        A murder involving a knife,inside a slaughterhouse near Eagle Grove…. if you’re going to try to tell us you didn’t expect it was going to involve Hispanics, and then call us racist, you’re not only a liar, you’re a race-baiting liar.

          LOL! You’re funny! Where did you pull that shit out of?

          I expect people of all races to be violent because it comes from within each individual. I’m not like you who wants to blame people of other ethnic backgrounds for all violence.
