Well, I think it’s fairly plain, but sure.

Our “aunty lib”, clever that. Seems to imply that poc should not be awake and out past his designated curfew. Pair that with the many remarks we’ve had the pleasure of reading concerning the importance of violence being more distasteful if the subject is of a certain race or skin tone.

I pray for this young child. And I pray for the family and their friends. If there is a Hell, and I fear there is, the list of future residents from Athens, GA is too damn long. Where is the humanity?

I hope the killer is caught and fully punished.

I hope the witnesses- this happened in Daylight- saw something.
