    I asked very nicely to refrain from racial comments. After seeing some comments left on other websites I don’t want the same thing to happen here. That goes for both sides with your permission I would like to take that part of your comment out. Thank you in advance for you understanding.


  2. Finally charged! It took long enough….will be interesting to hear both sides of the story but the bottom line is you don’t just shoot! Call the police and stay behind your locked door….this young lady’s life did not have to be lost…I do understand the fear and adrenaline at that time of the morning but you can’t just shoot…alot of bad decisions were made on both sides this tragic morning but we do not have the death penalty here and that’s what poor renisha had to pay for asking for help?


  3. When will we get it. The killing of all our children and young people is a travesty to the whole human race. This travesty should be the common ground on which all stand on to stop it. My prayers go out to Mr. and Mrs. McBride as I cannot imagine the pain they are experiencing after the loss of their child in such a tragic manner.
