Probably the most unsettling, racist thing I have seen in a long time.

    I have a feeling that some people mistook "jogger" (perhaps intentionally) for another six-letter word that kind of rhymes.

    Checking time/date on my phone to see if I was teleported back to 1964 ...

    Who the f**k is she?? Thank goodness I don’t know her. What substance does she cart that anyone should follow what she says?

    If you don’t think it was race related “Game over Man! You haven’t been keep track of current events!!”

    The famous quote is “don’t insult my intelligence “, this qualifies.

    There’s reportedly a video of him walking around a construction site. Given the color of his skin, that’s enough for some.

    I’m just glad I didn’t get shot last week after pulling up to an addition to a nearby high school and walking over to look at the steel framing up close.

    Just think of facts:

    unarmed man in street running other way;

    Somehow this ends in armed confrontation and is killed by someone else’s gun.

    That should never happen.

    I thought @Smallpotatoes had created a great nickname for her

    This is probably WAY too simplistic, but why didn't the two white guys just call the cops? Let them question the jogger.

    OK. Thank you for the supposition.

    The older of the two had a history with the jogger going back to when the jogger was in high school. It’s not hard to imagine him saying something like “I knew he was a little no-good shit and this time I’m gonna get his ****** ass good!”

    I would agree it's not hard to imagine. Look, I don't know the facts. Do any of us? I will simply say it is awful, my heart aches.

    The video pretty much speaks for itself.
