Obama and the media built a civil race war.
It has "consequences".
I have no problem with them wanting answers. I'd like to get the facts myself if for no other reason then to learn from the mistakes. But this is nothing more then an excuse. They had protest when the moron was shot in the gas station last year even though video clearly showed he had a gun. they protested when the kid trying to rob the sneakers, with a gun was shot. They are not to be held irrepressible for anything.

WOW! That was crazy talk. How could I have not seen that before. there should be a investigation into this matter.
In Mother Russia the cops would be using real ammo and the crowds would be flippin dead..
It depends on who you ask. Al will tell you that you are racist for asking that and, if you are white, will tell you YOU are the problem....
why is it a problem when the administration is on their side? Because Dems like to see social deconstruction and destruction as long as they don't have to clean it up.
Shhhh! liberals will call that "hate facts" you can't bring that up.
This female reporter is lucky. A few years ago I read about a protest like this and some gang bangers surrounded a lady reporter and took turns raping her while cameras rolled. This reporter has learned that the protestors are there to benefit themselves and in this case it meant she was robbed. These protestors know that all police across the country have been castrated. Give it 5 years, if not sooner, there will be a shortage of police officers.
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Lawlessness.
Amazing what a race chooses to do with Freedom.......
Any excuse to be a terrorist and yet be defended by the attorney general as victims. What a great world for those who are forever victims: they can commit crimes and call it protest and get the sympathy of progressives in an out of the media and government.
Reporter was not smart. When you do this kind of work you are going into combat. You don't keep your purse or anything else hanging off your body that someone can swipe off your body. The little punks that do this, need to be brought to JUSTICE.
Another successful obama - DNC rally.
Man ! Obama sure has a lot of kids!
She was just showing the world what gentle giants look like. Likely casting the rest of America as racists for mistreating these poor boys.
Then she got her wakeup call.
She was a privileged working camerawoman, she could afford it. Isn't that what they always say. Welcome to Da Hood.
Actually, white people commit the most heinous crimes in the United States.
Apparently some blacks cannot make a living without assaulting women in some way. And they call themselves manly.
If you want to see white people rioting here ya go. http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2014/11/white-people-rioting-for-no-reason.html
Sadly they are rioting because of sports.
And why are more black people in prison?
Well that's merely a matter of profiling.
White people use drugs at a slightly higher rate than blacks. Yet blacks are 5 times more likely to be charged with possession.
Not only that but black people are 28 times... again... 28 TIMES, more likely to be stopped and questioned by police.
Black minors are 9 times more likely to be charged and sentenced as adults than white minors for the same drug offence.
Finally, on average blacks serve a 60% longer sentence than whites, once again... for the same crime
It's not racist to wonder why. It's racist to believe they do it BECAUSE they are black.
Race is a cultural construct. The behavior is cultural, not racial. People behave in a way that typifies the culture they were raised in.
So, they are doing it because of their culture. Their culture ignores personal responsibility and blames everyone else for their problems. They just happen to be black.
I don't think it's racist. I think it's a miseducated assumption.
“Obscene hand signals?” These are gang signs and a reflection of nothing but generational waywardness. Freddy Gray is just today’s excuse for these punks to publicly do what they want to do every day!

looks like a airplane at a distance. I live in a flight path and I see the same thing when a plane is coming at me from a distance. they can be many miles away and still have bright lights.

Here is an idea.. Use a piece of paper and a pen to add the price and tax or do they not teach that in school.

Running of the cows.. I get the same feeling after a long winter.
Glad to see someone else wiling to comment on a black girl's inability to frame a cogent thought and commit it to paper.
I noticed that as well; still, her response was snappy.
So, are young people now offended for getting rejection letters from colleges?
My apologies in advance, for soon the term "rejection letter" will be changed to be less offensive.
On second thought, I take back the apology.
IT...WAS...A...JOKE! Lighten up and stop being so quick to be offended, shocked, upset or just condescending to anybody who doesn't agree with you 100%! Sheesh!
(I ate it because I wanted to.) The second, “She” (sic) should not be capitalized. Also, compared to the future tense of the rest of the sentence, “wanted” should be, “wants." I giggle at people as you that want to be grammar police. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BG9WfCpCQAAwEaD.jpg
USC... also known as.... the University of Small Children...
"O’Dell apparently used the same format and wording as Duke’s rejection letter"
If you wanted to comment on the story You may need to read it next time.
She will learn spelling in College. Most Public schools don't teach spelling.
Really?,you should take advantage of the same grammar check.
“I’m Siobhan Reece, 17, and there’s not a boy on this earth worthy of me.” Ms. Reece I regret to inform you that none of the boys or me on earth find you worthy and thus reject you. Perhaps if you spent half as much time on your studies as you do trying to get attention through social media, you might have gotten accepted. Not sure which part of this was a joke, but you are in fact a huge joke and don't deserve 15 secs. of attention let along 15 mins.
I thought they only teach identity politics, global warming and equal outcome in college?
After the Duke lacrosse case and the foolishness of professors, and administration, I don't know why any self-respecting student would even apply to that activist, non-educational, cesspool.
would need to compare with the original rejection letter maybe dukes grammar is just as bad.
I think they stopped teaching grammar and began teaching self esteem!
Her “I’m Siobhan Reece, 17, and there’s not a boy on this earth worthy of me.” Is a clear sign of “Princess Syndrome”. No wonder she doesn’t take rejection well, mommy and daddy have probably told her she is “perfect”…regardless of lacking the qualifications to be accepted at many top end universities.
She is either conceited and any guy that gets up with her will pay dearly for every ounce of affection from her…or she is gay, and that’s what she meant to say. There are some really stupid men out there though, so if she’s not gay and she’s really hot, there will be plenty of dumbarses willing to take her abuse for a slice of that sweet “poundcake”.
U-SoCal sounds perfect for her.
You're spot on. If her application letter was on par with this one, it's no wonder Duke passed on her highness. I wonder what her grade in English was this year. If it was an A, her English teacher should be ashamed. I recommend Miss O'Dell spend less time texting and more time practicing formal letter writing.
ANd she needs to get ready to pay for Duke for the next 20 years.
You missed the point! She wrote the letter in the same format and wording as the Duke rejection letter.
I would say to her, “YOU GO GIIRRRRLLL!!”
The awkward wording of her letter was obviously due to her using parallel construction with the rejection letter. I'm a professional writer and editor, and I thought it was brilliant.
The last sentence of the second paragraph is awkward. And I don't think the letter is particularly funny...just seems tantrum-esque.
Her parents failed to write that fat check that universities like Duke require for people like her to attend. Its not what you know its how big that check is that accompanies the application. I know a family who got their imbecile son into Yale on a legacy admission. The entrance application came with a nice six figure check. We used the kid as a summer intern and he broke nearly everything we gave him to use. We wanted to bill the dad at the end of the summer but were told we couldn't. But I wanted the wealthiest banker from Houston to pay for the things his son fubared.
