I wondered what DU would so with this.

Personally I think the black guy killed the white supremacist because the liberals have been inciting violence by saying that "teabaggers" are all about racism and are white supremacists. No wonder a crazy black person killed a white supremacist. If they'd only quit inciting violence. Really, they belong in jail.

White supremacist 'stabbed and beaten to death by his black neighbour' in Mississippi town

A white supremacist lawyer was stabbed and beaten to death by a black neighbour who had done yard work for him at his home in Pearl, Mississippi.

A preliminary post mortem showed Richard Barrett, 67, was stabbed multiple times in the neck and bashed in the head, Sheriff Ronnie Pennington said.

He had burns over 35 per cent of his body, though investigators believe he was killed on Wednesday night and his house set on fire Thursday to cover up his death.

Pennington did not disclose a motive but said neighbour Vincent McGee, 22, was charged with murder on Thursday and deputies charged three other people in the case on Friday.

It's a little bit of everything, except for saying that it's because liberals are inciting violence. No surprise there.

1. Those that preach hate and violence

shouldn't be too surprised when it finds them.
So, when the left acts and says hateful things they shouldn't be surprised when a conservative kills them? OK And now it's open season on Olberman and a host of other leftists who preach hatred toward conservatives.

22. if you spend your life inciting others to violence then

you yourself should expect to be a victim of the same violence. Do you really think that the object of your hatred and violence is just going to stand there and take it with a smile on their face? Really? Or, do you think your victim could be incited to respond in kind.....violently. I'm sorry, but I dint' see a HUGE difference between a lifetime of inciting hate and violence and being a victim of your own rhetoric. live by the sword, die by the sword.

8. Yeah, this is one of those stories..................

in the news that I want to know about in more detail. It was probably something as simple as being owed for work done, then an argument that got out of hand.

Although that would not necessarily be simple. I remember in Mississippi in the 50s, hearing about white racists who employed blacks and stiffed them for wages earned or at least delayed payment until it was convenient for THEM (the employer). And that stemmed from the ATTITUDE of the racists that it was OK to do this to black folk because they weren't white. IOW, they weren't quite human, so they didn't deserve the moral rules that applied to other humans.
More of the...."it was justified, I'm sure" attitude.

14. I'm Inclined to Think This Is a Case of Accuse First, Create Evidence Later

I have no reason to believe that the Missisippi police department is not playing their own white supremacist game here.

In any event, "Presumed Innocent" might still be in effect in this country, unless "terrorism" is evoked.

23. What "White Supremacist game" are you accusing Mississippi cops of playing?

Just because this was in Mississippi, the police are going to be white supremacists? I'm from Mississippi, as are a lot of other DUers. We are white supremacists, or is it just cops in Mississippi? And do you know the race of the police chief, sheriff, or investigator here? (The sheriff is white, but did you know that, or just assume?)

By the way, the cops are claiming this was not racially motivated. The killer is claiming he killed the victim because the victim made a sexual advance on him. The killer had known Barret for many years and worked for him as a teenager, and they were neighbors.

Oh, Oh, now you have 2 of the lefts favorite protected classes against each other.......which way will they go. Now who will they blame?

33. The title of the story is loaded for controversy!

It could have just as well read, "Man killed by neighbor"
Can't have that line about a black person killing someone he supposedly hates, can we?
