any sane, logical person...
Okay, explain this one to me. When you have cross words with a couple in a Wal-Mart checkout line, then attack them in the parking lot, it's THEIR FAULT. You just thugged-up, went savage and did what any sane, logical person would do in the same situation.
Shortly after Lennell Greer was charged Friday with beating two people at a Wal-Mart store in Forest Park on Christmas Eve, Greer's wife lashed out at the victims, saying her husband simply was protecting their daughter.
"A father's love is his crime,'' said the wife, who identified herself as "Mrs. Lennell Greer.'' "What would any man do when a grown man starts something with his 11-year-old, 70-pound daughter?''
I'll tell you what a man does when that happens. He leaves the store, gets in his car and drives away with his daughter, while explaining the fact that a lot of assholes exist in this world. He DOES NOT attack those people in the parking lot with a baseball bat. When he does that kind a maniac shit, HE is the asshole. Mrs. Lennel Greer needs to be dragged off and shot, along with her thug of a husband.
Mrs. Greer noted her husband was picked up by police on Christmas, and her daughter wasn't able to give him his gift.
"From her first Christmas she has never been separated from her father. Never,'' she said. "Now he's incarcerated. Is that what Santa has to bring?''
Have you ever heard a more senseless, self-pitying whine in your life? Santa didn't bring that baseball bat and Santa isn't the one who assaulted two people with it, either. Mrs. Greer, your FUCKED-UP HUSBAND did that, and he deserves to have his ass in jail, the stupid, violent cretin.
Just be glad that the dumbfuck didn't pull that stunt in the parking lot of the Super Wal-Mart in Rincon, Georgia. He wouldn't be in jail. He would be in the fucking morgue, with numerous perferations in his body from gunshot wounds. That aluminum baseball bat ain't no match for a .38 pistol. He would have died in the parking lot, in a puddle of blood, and that bat would have gone rolling across the asphalt, making a nice, tinny sound when it fell from his dead hands. The bastard would have deserved it, too.
No jury in Georgia would convict anybody who shot such a thug under those circumstances.
I'm going to take a wild guess about the racial implications of this crime. I don't know many white men named "Lennell." I don't know many black people with the surname of "Baures." I personally believe that this has all the earmarks of a "hate crime," that was racially motivated.
But that can't be true. Only whites are violent racists.
I could not have said it better !
Living in the area, and seeing the pictures, this is definitely a black on white crime.
You did a much better job explaining this then the article itself did. Thank-you.
Sounds like the kid involved will be a chip off the old block, blaming and making excuses for bad behavior..shame.
"But that can't be true. Only whites are violent racists. "
Uh, duh. *looking around clueless*
I don't know, darling. Just yesterday, a young white male got smart with me for saying, "excuse me, may I just slip by you." He was blocking the aisle in the grocery store. I didn't wait outside for him, but I thought about it, simply because it was obvious that he was military and I was going to get his sticker number and report him to his CO. He needed to be taught not to be rude to someone he doesn't know for no reason. But I let it go.
Over the years, I have had many a**hats be incredibly rude to me (unwarranted) and one non-sexual assault and guess what? Most of them were white males (Californians). Do I hate you guys? Obviously not, but sometimes I wonder what's up. Hey, it wasn't me that took these guys' jobs due to AA, nor is it me that's supporting my offspring with their tax dollars.
I'm getting real tired, however, of these types taking their (possibly warranted) frustrations on me because I may have the same skin color as some other a**hat. Conversely, I will not lump all white males into one category either.
However, they need to chill out too. One day I may be the one that you're reading about and not bradishing a baseball either.
Baseball Bat=Deadly weapon=Fear for my Life.Here in East Texas would have been a good shoot.In Forest Park Il.you don't have the right to self defense.All you can do is hope the attacker gets tired before they kill you.I am very glad i live I live in Texas.
Juliette, I understand your complaint, but I don't believe that it's universal. I am a man and you are a woman. Big deal. If I have more items in the checkout line than you do, I would invite you go ahead of me. I wouldn't think about your skin color or your sex. I just want to be polite. We both just to buy our shit and get out of the store to go back home.
I cannot stand unneccessary rudeness, and the world is filled with it today.
What is so difficult about showing some goddam manners?
"Paging Rev. Sharpton, Rev. Jackson"
Course it being in Illinois there was no legal option for the victims except to either endure the beating while waiting to be rescued by the cops (hey - it would've happened eventually with accent on eventually) ir try to go hand to hand with the fella with the baseball bat.
Illinois is screwed up in general & Chicago is screwed up speciically when it comes to that whole Right to Arms thing. U.S. Constituion's Second Amendment? they never heard of it. Illinois Constitution? It says your Right to Arms is subject to the police power & they use their power to arrest people for carrying guns for self defense.
Course I doubt they notice it but when I have to pass through Illinois & spend any cash I need to on one side of the border & don't stop till I'm on the other. Vacation in Chicago? Hell, I'd rather give my money to the Chinese government. At least they're honest about treating its citizens as property.
I feel sorry for those people in Illinois who can't afford to move & who don't have the gumption to revolt.
The Tao's principle is spontaneity.
A room without books is like a body without a soul.
It is wise to apply the oil of refined politeness to the mechanisms of friendship.
