    Impossible. The man can’t possibly be dead. The article clearly states he was beaten. That means there wasn’t a gun involved, and we all know that only guns can be used to murder people.

    Unless maybe he was beaten to death with a gun. I guess that might explain it.

    Catch the way the TV report was choreographed? The reporter begins describing the incident as a parade of video and sound clips tease the viewer into thinking “who the hell could have done something like this?”

    Then a black face comes around the corner mumbling what sounds like a prepared script in as disinterested a tone of voice as possible.

    Bitch might as well have said, “Serves you right fo’ bein’ white!”

    The gun-grabbers are already running out of steam but you know what’s really going to kill their buzz? The Zimmerman riots this summer. Once these libs see a gang of Gee Gobos running at their car and working their door handles the thought of having a gun will suddenly seem less repulsive.

    Thank goodness he didn’t have a gun … he might have harmed one of ‘my people.’

    Fort Wayne is in Indiana, where you can carry a weapon at your home or business without even having to get a carry permit.

    This is a rare incident in the Hoosier state, because most business owners here are ARMED.
    That’s why incidents like this are so rare.

    I’m sorry he’s dead, but if he’d had a gun, he’d probably be alive right now.
