Twenty-five Republican governors vowed to block the entry of Syrian refugees into their states, arguing that the safety of Americans was at stake after the Paris attacks by terrorists. Among the governors were those from Illinois, Massachusetts, Texas and other states that have already resettled relatively large numbers of refugees from among the 1,900 Syrians accepted by the United States in the last four years. President Barack Obama, in remarks to reporters at the G-20 summit meeting in Turkey, said the United States had a moral obligation to accept refugees, as European nations have done, and he criticized Republican candidates like Senator Ted Cruz and former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida who have said the United States should focus on protecting Christians fleeing warfare and persecution, as opposed to Muslims. "We do not have religious tests for our compassion," Obama said. "That's not who we are."

In a random attack, a former Texas A&M college football player hacked to death a male jogger on Dallas' White Rock Creek Monday at 8 a.m., then called police and admitted the crime. Thomas Johnson, 21, was a highly regarded wide receiver from Dallas Skyline High School who disappeared from A&M's team in 2012 and triggered a search. He left the school then, was recently was kicked out of his home and police said he was angry about his situation. A witness to the attack said, "You could tell it was a machete, coming down on what I wasn't sure at first but when I got closer I could tell it was a body. And he was repeatedly hitting it in the back of the neck."

Investors are getting increasingly nervous that talks about a massive 'Bud-Miller' beer merger will end in failure. Shares in SABMiller fell by about 3% in London after reports that the brewer had turned down an initial takeover offer from its largest rival, Anheuser-Busch InBev. If the deal happens, it would be the biggest merger in brewing history, creating a "super brewery" with nine of the world's top 20 beers by volume and annual sales of $55 billion. read more


I'm curious how many other people have been convicted of hate crimes for the knockout game. Anyone?

Maybe do some research and start a thread? For now, this pos randomly hit an elderly man selected by hate. What's your point ???

:My point, dipstick, is in the question. I recall a story last year about a black guy who knocked out exclusively old Jewish women...but the DA threw out hate crime charges. I wasn't even aware a DA could do that because hate crimes are federal. The knockout game was getting a lot of press last year, but I haven't heard of any hate crime charges with the exception of this case. I'm curious whether I've missed it or if law enforcement is just afraid to call a black guy a racist.

No dipstick, the last sentence of #19 was your point. I just let you say it yourself.

maybe the DA in the case you're citing didn't have enough evidence.

Gotta love folks that immediately look for some way to to project that stuff. Honestly, it's truly sad to hear about this happening to anyone of any race. And no,, African-Americans aren't excluded from prejudice and yes, if they commit a hate crime they should be prosecuted in the same manner as everyone else.

With the number of unarmed black men police have killed or maimed lately, I hardly think they'd be afraid to call one of them out on a hate crime.
