    I think it is sad how people can show ignorance. Doesn't matter if your Black or White. If you commit the Crime, do the time.You say white people are Racist? Well, Doesn't matter what color you are, they're racisim in Black and Hispanic as well. It is how you are raised. I am white and I am not Racist. There is good in all. If you choose to live in a rough area, that is your fault, not mine. You do have a choice.

    An individual allegedly robs the 8th street Wal Mart. With all of the digital cameras, the person didn't think. I'm glad no one in the store was injured. The individual will eventually be caught.

    Wow, this is cheap entertainment coming on here to read the news and watching the comments. People never cease to amaze me, always pawning things off on one group or the other.

    First off, SHAME on KKTV for letting these types of uber rascist comments be posted! I am truly appalled at all of you who constantly post horrible, ignorant rascist vomit on this website & the internet in general... I wish I had nothing better to do than slander everyone, all of the time- and still feel good about myself... Seriously, I understand the concept of the First Amendment, but my goodness this is taking it WAY TOO FAR!!! In agreement with "Disgusted"- please save it for your Klu Klux Klan meetings...

      This is because kktv is a ghetto, tabloid, entertainment 'news'site. Many a people have tried to put up a critical and analytical comment to articles and the ratio rate on that comment actually being seen is less than 35 percent. But you can rest assured that every POS comment that people can think of will get plastered on this joke of a newssite. Catering to the lowest denominator apparently sells big in this town and judging by the amount of them lower denominators posting, I'm sure kktv is making a bundle.

    I love how I see no racist comments when white men are molesting Elementary kids. Majority of racist are white, and the internet is their only safe place left, because other white people will kick their butts for being a bigot

      It doesn't take too long to figure out where the leanings of this town go. It's quite disgraceful especially when you notice all the churches on every other street corner. Clonerado Springs at its finest.

      Nobody likes stupid racial comments. But you try to win your argument by using "Stupid Racial Comments". Your post shows that you are just as much a vile racist as the people you are trying to condemn. We don't need people like you, or them - racists to the core!

        @Disgusted - The Tea Party and people on the right have nothing racist to say, especially something stupid like @IBlameMexicans! You need to go back to the Democrats and their KKK! True racist are in the Democrat party, and continue to keep minorities living in a "victim" status and dependents of the government. You should stop injecting your MSNBC liberal drivel!
