    Come on Rick, race has nothing to do with it. If the shooter chased the robber down the street and shot him, that would be a different scenario, of which you are referring to correct? The same scenario of which you always assume every criminal is black, and every black person is a criminal.

    Well, maybe not to that extent. Race has nothing to do with my thought process of guilty, or innocent. It is the actions, or thought process of the individuals that I question whether or not race played a factor. That is what seems to be predominant in most comments on this site, of which are mostly race related. Whether it be directly, or indirectly.

    Where did I ever state that, Rick? Why would you even assume that? I don't categorize any race, only individuals of which have made statements based on it.

    Great that this guy just remained in line. Hope he got a pair of shoes.

    The article should have pointed out how fortunate it was that this guy has a gun on him.

    I know I just can't wait for the new LeBron James sneakers to become available here. I am so going to leave two black tire marks out of the driveway and every intersection to the store, then camp out overnight so I can be the first in line to get them. And then after plugging some moron trying to pull an armed robbery, I'm going to <i>get back into line</i> for my sneakers, like this guy did.

    More detail in this article, link above. Sounds like two of the sneaker buyers pulled guns on the robber, who also had a gun. The robber wasn't after sneakers, of course; he wanted the cash of the people waiting in line. I can't understand this sneaker craze myself, but I suppose it's no different from many other consumer crazes...
