Things are going terribly wrong in America, especially in certain cultures, when teens attack and murder the most vulnerable. What in the hell motivates teens to attack and beat to death an 89 year-old man?
As The Right Scoop aptly notes, we can't yet say that the attack was race-based because we don't know, but clearly we've seen a lot of crimes like this lately.
No word yet on this from the likes of Sharpton, Jackson, Obama, et.al.
And let's not forget, the teens could have been Obama's sons.
