    These 3 are not out on bail. They are still in jail. Someone was just trying to stir something up. I hope they stay there for a long time and have to pay restitution (no matter how long it takes even if making minimum wage) to cover everything they stole from everyone.

    I am really sick and tired of people saying everything is racist, I know we have racism in our society but for every bad action there is a consequence and I am sick and tired of seeing our young black men pictures on front page headlines, my God was fighting for our rights in vain!
