2 people got killed because of how they looked.What is this world coming to if people can not express themselves without the fear of reprisals on the street in broad daylight by the younger and sometimes older generation??It disgusts me that the younger generation seem to be less tolerant of others than the older generations Why?May be because we fear the reprisals of challenging??Words for thought ay???

How long will it be before we can breed out the pitchfork mentality of these thick useless chavboys - we used to need stupid donkeys to fill up the factories but now they have closed we have these floating pieces of shit all around us with nothing to do except bang their own heads off walls and hit things. These tossers should just be castrated - we just don't need more goldfish gapers in the gene pool any more. Once the 'dumb violent prick' is bred out of society we can all get on with things.
