    I’m expecting these street rats are going to start swarming the streets. The number one reason: Obama, the liberal media, the race baiters, the cop haters, Sharktongue, and the rest of the HATERS are impressing on the street thugs that they can claim foul if they are shot by a cop. My aren’t all you people with rotten kids proud now? I don’t care anymore..

    Where are the marches for these dead young men, where are the protests and the riots and the burning buildings. Where are Al, Eric, Jessie and Barrack at? This is in the hometown of Barrack, why is he not talking about how these young men would look like his son if he had one. I know why because the deaths do not match their agenda.

    This is why Obama and the Democrats have abandoned the Blacks and moved on to the Latinos for their voter base. The Latino race is projected to continue growing into 2040 while the Blacks continue to thin their herd by killing each other.

    THIS IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE BUT THE CASES IN FERGUSON,NEW YORK AND CLEVELAND ARE THE AGGRESSION FROM WHITE COPS AND STILL ON AS ANOTHER BLACK YOUTH KILLED BY WHITE COP IN FERGUSON !

      One of the most ignorant statements I’ve read. The ALL black men killed recently by white cops were criminals commiting crimes. The cops simply did their job protecting their own life and the lives of others.

    if they(the black community) think 5 is alot(and it is) just wait till obama declares martial law and they(blacks) protest. if there is a press corp to cover this and the government controlled media “publishes” it the numbers will be in the 100’s. this will be on the heads of those who allowed the racists to incite the riots to begin with and not put a stop this moronic action. i think you(blacks) are being played by the current administration.

    According to their parents, they were all “good boys, getting their lives back on track.”

    I’m still trying to figure out why race is even mentioned. Who cares. If they were involved in gang activity then maybe they should have re thought their career paths and race is no need for metioning in media. The news purposely does this to gain reactions in which it has clearly turned for the worse for this country and let’s not forget the ratings. Common sense come on here people. Get the hell over this black/white/Asain/Hispanic bullshit cause the article should read 5 people shot in this location by however many men which was gang related. No need for the race. It is not the days of segregation media.

      I totally agree with you, Kells!!
      I read the heading and my jaw dropped… What the?!?! Really?? If the “reporters” are so headstrong on reporting race in the heading why not report race of all the wounded?!? Race of the suspects in the shootings? What was the point of that?!?
      Instigating race debating isn’t journalism, it’s just stirring the pot on an already sensitive topic.

    I am surprised they haven’t stated blaming the hospitals for letting these THUGS die there. Everyone of them died in the hospital.
