    formerlorainresident I am really never interested in that debate to be honest. Go back and read your comments from different stories. My only point to you is the language and the hate in your comments for certain stories over others. I have actually asked questions about what can be done to make Lorain County more economically viable in a fair amount of my comments, but those have all been ignored to this point. I’m a community person. I love where i was raised. I am not happy with the direction the whole area has taken and if there is anything I can do to bring a place i’m proud to say i’m from back up i’m all in. are you?

      That is ridiculous. I dislike all criminals, not because of their color, but because of their actions.

      If I have been more vocal about certain stories, it is probably because I felt more strongly about the crime, not the person committing it.

      You seem to want to make me into a racist, by constantly bringing it up. Sorry, won’t work, I don’t have a racist bone in my body.

      Not sure what your issue is, I am on your side! I can’t help but to think you also want to put these people behind bars.

      If you feel blacks are not treated fairly, versus whites, that is not because of me. I did not create this inequality. I do not condone it, or propagate it. Maybe you should take your case to the politicians, judges and others who you feel are responsible for this. I have nothing to do with it.

      You are targeting the wrong person here. For example, that white guy who killed the 5yo in Cleveland, give him death. He deserves it. If he were black, give him death, if he were hispanic…you get the point.

      I also grew up in Lorain, and while I no longer live there, have been a Big Brother to two kids from Lorain over the past several years. Oh, and by the way, they were both black.

      You really need to direct your comments, and anger, at those responsible for what you feel are societal prejudices. I am not that person.

      When it comes to criminals, I am an equal opportunity hater!!!

    at formerlorainresident. He should have stayed in his vehicle and called the authorities if he felt that strongly about it. That is the proper thing to do. That is what law enforcement advises you to do. I’m not blaming him for anything. In life though man sometimes you have to help from afar for your own safety. Why do you think the cops wait for backup before the go into a situation?

      What does this have to do with the above story. I never even posted a comment here.

      Not sure what you are even talking about????
