If Obama had a son would he look like young Antonio Santiago?

quote:

BRUNSWICK, Ga. — It was a tiny bullet that took the short life of Antonio Santiago.

He had learned to walk, but not yet talk, when he was killed March 21, six weeks after his first birthday. He was strapped in his stroller, out for a walk with his mother a few blocks from their apartment near the Georgia coast, when someone shot the boy between the eyes with a .22-caliber bullet the size of a garden pea.

The teenager charged as the shooter is scheduled to stand trial next week in a courthouse far from the scene of the crime. Because of public outrage and news coverage, a judge has moved 18-year-old De'Marquise Elkins' trial 325 miles away, to the suburbs outside Atlanta. Jury selection starts Monday at the Cobb County courthouse in Marietta. Superior Court Judge Stephen Kelley has set aside two weeks for the trial.

Elkins faces life in prison if convicted of murder. His youth spared him a possible death sentence. At the time of the shooting he was 17, too young to face capital charges in Georgia.

Police say the motive was as banal as the slaying of a toddler was shocking. Investigators concluded that Antonio was killed during an attempted street robbery as his mother, Sherry West, was strolling home with the child from the post office. West said a gunman demanding cash shot her baby in the face after she told him she had no money.

"He kept asking, and I just said 'I don't have it,'" West told The Associated Press the day after the slaying. "And he said, 'Do you want me to kill your baby?' And I said, 'No, don't kill my baby!'"

West was shot in the leg, and another bullet grazed her ear. Witnesses called 911 and rushed to her aid. None saw the shooting, but they watched as West tried to revive her son using CPR. "No, the baby's not breathing," one caller told a 911 operator.

Police say Elkins had an accomplice, 15-year-old Dominique Lang, who has told investigators Elkins fired the gun. Lang also is charged with murder but will be tried later. He's expected to be a key witness against Elkins.

The evidence in this case is very weak and there is evidence that instead implicates both parents. Surprised that they are still prosecuting.

This case smelled from the very beginning IMO. I don't have any reason to believe so but I think something is just wrong with this case

Tired-ass shite. When will this meme die? No more "If Obama had a son" threads. Please. You're propagating the ridiculous shite.

I did not know that. This will be interesting.


ETA: Still doesn't change my opinion that the POTUS should not be commenting on open criminal cases.

You want to know what's ridiculous? The POTUS commenting on an open criminal case. He took gasoline and threw it on an open flame. Far from needing to die, this meme needs to be repeated until Obama leaves office. He deserves all the contempt that he gets for his deplorable conduct in this matter.

You must be a retard to think that it should just go away. I hope people with sense make fun of his racist arse 200 years from now for saying that stupid shite.

Yep.

This was unethical, irresponsible, and immoral for Obama to do. The POTUS is not your average Joe. He's the leader of the free (lol at free) world and he holds a lot of sway over public opinion and he chose to abuse that sway for politics and and further the racial divide. I don't give a shite if that was his intention or not but the damage is done. When it comes to things like this, there is only one rule for people like him in positions of power and that is to shut the frick up and he broke that rule.

frick him.

Whatever you say, boss-man. I'm of the opinion that the country should move on from the cancerous Zimmerman BS. IOHAS is played out. It's like fighting the lowest common denominator with a lower one.

So let's keep on bringing it up, no matter how unrelated and nonsensical the story. As long as it involves race, let's keep on saying IOHAS. Sounds like a great solution. It's just as irresponsible as what the guy said in the first place. Not to mention unoriginal. I'm sure the admin could give you a count of IOHAS threads.

Seeing how we still got "bush's fault" 5 years into Obama's administration (starting to die down a little now), I think you are just going to have to suck up some repetitious criticism of a sitting president. Or maybe you have somehow confused the posters on TD with members of the media and we should just give him a pass?

the mother is clearly a right wing tea party racist as she did not give that poor youth all of her money, credit cards and valuables.

It wasn't overlooked in the article that you linked.


But hey, you got to say IOHAS. You're funny and original.

Your comments are basically straight from the defense attorney's mouth. Any independent sources for that ballistics info. ... you know, 'cause we're all after the facts right?

At least you're honest enough to still call the perp the perp.

Great

Now people are saying it, when it doesn't even fit.

If you're going to use this tired meme, then, at least.... wait..... Never mind, just don't use it.

Who are you to determine if a meme is "tired" or not. Who died and made you chief of all meme's?
Thanks for the advice oh wise one. Now get back to fixing Daniel's bike.
