    This is to "Daily Report." If you hate this "racist" country-hit the road. There are a number of ships/planes ect that leave the USA everyday. You could be on a beach in Europe, Africa, Iceland--wherever you want to be. Since you are reading this-you are likely an attorney and have some $--quit bellyaching and leave. If you do that you may find that of many places, the USA is the least racist of many countries. Frankly, the tragedy in Virginia is a very rare occurrence-where as in some countries it is an everyday experience. I suggest you try going to a middle eastern country first-I bet in no time you will be running back here with your tail between your legs.

    Kendrick was murdered. Just look at the pictures of his body in the casket. There‘s no possible way a person could do that to themselves, then roll themselves up into a gym mat! I hate this racist country!

    "Perhaps they went too far in actually accusing people of crimes when they had no evidence to support it. . " "Perhaps"? PERHAPS??!

    This is a terribly sad story. I don‘t know of any parent who wouldn‘t want to get to the bottom of the many questions that still exist in this matter. Perhaps they went too far in actually accusing people of crimes when they had no evidence to support it but how often do you hear of a child dying in such a way and how does one conclude that the child actually placed himself inside the rolled up mat while trying to retrieve a shoe? It just seems that no one knows what happened to this child and it happened while he was at the school and under their watch.
