    First that 15 year old kid in Ohio, now these two in Texas. Watch the videos.

    Just absolutely ridiculous. People just need to leave people alone. People do and can disagree but this violence is just out of control.

    The things that happened to Burke Burnett are terrifying. He's lucky to be alive.

    Couldn't agree more. I don't care if you like or dislike who or what somebody is leave them alone and worry about your own life. If everyone in this world lived by the personal code of "live and let live" we would be far better off.

    The aggressive ones have the drive of Alphas, a carry-over from the survival-of-the-fittest days of Man, which they cannot, or will not, shrug-off.

    God's image, perhaps, but no further.
