    It isn’t about the victim being black just like it isn’t about calling a black person by the N-word. It about ambulance chasing, so called “Civil Rights Activist” getting rich and famous. Ben Bubba Crump could be working around the clock standing in front of the television camera just speaking to the shootings in the 32304. But there isn’t any money in that plus no one really cares. Black people commonly refer to themselves as N- word. The N-word is liberally used in movies and music. It just normal. Where the line is drawn is when a white person says it. It just makes no sense when a career criminal meets his/her demise and everyone is shocked he was shot by a police officer. Follow the money and you will learn what crimes are profitable events.

  2. With all these Shootings, where are the “Community Leaders”? They can’t get in front of the Cameras fast enough if they think a cop showed to much force against a Black Suspect but, where are they when it comes to these daily Shootings? They need to be working with the Cops. They need to be Protesting for and Demanding for more ARRESTS and LONGER PRISON TIMES for the Shooters.

  3. Keep including your high school volleyball report, and I’ll keep my fifty bucks…how bout that?

    If you are telling us that this is the only news worth reporting in Florida’s Capital City on Tuesday, Sept. 12th, we are in deep kimchi.
