Beating an elderly woman

Beating an elderly woman as she exits the hospital. Perfectly Normal, Perfectly Healthy activity for a 15 year old.

My grandma you r talking about!

Let me tell you something that is my grandma you r talking about and God is NOT PLEASE at your comment. Judgement day is coming your way. How would you feel if 3 men jumped your sorry butt and no one cared?! But I here to let you know that she is a FIGHTER! FIGHTER! and God will have the last word. There will be justice!!!!! KEEP YOUR SORRY INSULTING WORDS TO YOURSELF!!!!!

OH YEH perfectly normal and

OH YEH perfectly normal and perfectly healthy activity for a 15 year old to beat a 73 year old woman like that.you are just as sick as they are.to bad it was not your mama or grandma.when you stand before GOD on judgement day.i hope he tells you that same statement.when you're burning in hell and futher more it wasn't just a little 15 year old.this perfect and healthy 15 year old weighed 168 pounds and had 2 more 17 year old guys with him.1 which weighed 200 pounds and about 6'1.sounds like you have something against elderly people.or maybe just another demon from hell that will raise your child to be just like them.so our tax dollars will have to support them laid up in a jail or prison cell.

Buy a book...

... called Webster’s Dictionary and look up the word "Sarcasm."

Read your BIBLE if you have one

You need to read your BIBLE (if you even have one)and learn how to respect other people.

If you say so

Sure thing. Let me have yours once you are done reading it. Oh, you haven't started reading it yet.... I'll wait.

Sure thing. I'm finished.

Sure thing. I'm finished. More power to you.

Great, send it over

I'll give you a test to see if you comprehend what you claim to have read.

My grandmother

Why are they saying two men? There was three!!! Three!!!!

If these

weasels are guilty, let's hope the court sends them far away to a facility of strict security where their fellow classmates might give them some lessons in life.

Perhaps their families will want to include vaseline in any care packages they send them.

Let's see how tought these guys are, if guilty, after a stay in a state facility of the state's choosing. That poor lady could easily have expired from a heart attack as a result of their actions.

Beating of an elderly lady

Remember,if you can,that God want's us to #1.Do NOT!Judge anyone and do NOT bear false witness against anyone.#.2 and this is a really hard one,DO Forgive.I know some of ya'll out there are sayin"I'll be damned,he should be shot,or hung,or I'd beat his a@!" but,you must put those feelings in a safe place because,when one of you voices Rage,Anger and Negativity,it spreads.Like a wildfire out of control the people who read or hear such vile and contemptuous displays of Negative emotion are consumed by that Negativity and the Light within us all starts to fade to Black.This Country and,I guess 70% of whom are "Christians",have a bad habit of showing some pretty un-christian like behavior.I am by no means a Saint and I was full of anger when I saw the headline about this Lady.I was starting to write something along the lines of doing something to him when I stopped myself and remembered what God would approve of and what you're reading is the result.It only takes a second to openly view something no matter how horrific it is.We are being fed lust,greed,slothfulness,and the rest of the 7 deadly sins and by whom you may ask..? The Corporation and it's Government,formerly known as The United States of America.You see,there are 2 United States.The Country(you and me) and the Corporation known as THE UNITED STATES. I bet you don't realize the District of Columbia is a foreign Nation.The government which was created for the District of Columbia via the Act of 1871 operates under Private International Law, and not Common Law, which was the law of the Constitutional Republic.This Corporation,which has spawned the rest of the"regular"Corporations wants you beat down with fear and anger.It wants you sick and dying.Your money and labor is what they want and they care nothing about you or me.The Devil owns this world.Point blank.And Religion is one of his greatest tools.It Divides Everyone of Us ,makes us Fight and Kill one another.You can change this cycle of behavior just by changing your way of thinking but you have to want to.A great deal of people WANT to stay stuck in the past with redneck beliefs so we just have to work harder to make the Rational voices and beliefs the ones who prevail.

righteous anger

But there is such a thing as righteous anger which is acceptable in God's eyes. Remember when Jesus overturned the money changer's tables in anger outside the temple?

Agree

I agree. Although some christians think that they are perfect like they never in their life ever gotten angry. Let me tell you something its so easy for you to write a book in your speech when it didn't happen to you or your family memebr. So talk comes cheap. Their is NO ONE JUDGING! It's about getting justice to protect others!
