2 topics are on my mind right now. Let's start with #1.
#1 Alex Hribal, 16, now faces 21 counts of attempted homicide for the April 9th rampage at Franklin Regional Senior High School that left 21 people with knife wounds. After allegedly stabbing people in the halls, police said Hribal refused to drop the knives when he was confronted by Assistant Principal Sam King. According to the affidavit, Hribal said "No, I am not dropping them. My work is not done. I have more people to kill."
Also, a note reportedly was found in Hribal's locker that read: "I can't wait to see the priceless and helpless looks on the faces of the students. Realize their precious lives are going to be taken by the only one among them that isn't a plebeian."
This new information shows this 16 year old is the epitomy of evil. He calculated and planned his carnage and reveled in the fact he was going to hurt and possibly kill innocent kids, kids he viewed as not as worthy as him. The fact Alex Hribal is a kid will no doubt garner him sympathy as far as what should be done to him. Not here. I believe people like Hribal...young or old....who commit heinous acts against innocent people should be disposed of in any manner possible. You can't fix people like this. You can't fix evil, so you get rid of it.
#2 Clippers Owner Donald Sterling. A listener who emailed me said Sterling has every right to say what he said, which 99 % of the world has deemed racist. I agree. But, and this is a big BUT, he also has to deal with the repercussions that come with his words. Go yell "fire" in an crowded restaurant and see if you don't get arrested if there is no fire. Again, you have the right to say it. You also have the right to be in trouble for it.
As for those who say his comments didn't hurt anyone, I say you are wrong. His comments reduced his black players to second class citizens, indentured servants. His words demeaned them, dehumanized them. This is a big deal because it's blatant racism by a man who makes decisions that affect black men and their families.
Ask yourself....would you want to work for someone who didn't want his girlfriend taking pictures of people like you in public? Would you want to make a man more money who thinks of you as beneath him? I think not.
