    I think that’s the question we have all asked ourselves for a while now :)

    Its interesting that you think you can only incriminate yourself if you expound on your comments.

    Yeah, there's more to the story that is not shown in the vid. The lone guy approached the two as they were walking up to the revolving door. The pack soon followed. I think there was some unsettled business from earlier in the night.

    I simply asked you to explain why everyone should be "scared as hell." You seem to think its self-evident and obvious, I don't. This is your opportunity to challenge my assumptions of what you were implying. Do you live in constant fear of being randomly attacked by a group of 13-14 year old children?

    First, as I pointed out, it may well not have been random.
    Do they scare me, make me personally afraid? Not at all. But I'm certainly bothered by the fact that the teens would act with such violence, such disregard for people. But that can be said about countless acts of violence - assaults, murders, etc - than happen in this country daily.

    Are you terrified of every random event? People die from falling down stairs. Should I spend my life terrified of my stairs too?

    That was some of the most cowardly behavior I have witnessed in a long time. Kicking a guy who is out on the ground? What kind of scumbags behave that way?

    I'm loving the new direction of Too Hot. It's starting to remind me of the old "Black Crimes" section at Brietbart ... RIP.

    I was even thinking of something like, .0000001 percent of Americans are killed by a crazy guy with a gun, which means we should ban those guns.

    Amirite?

    Oh, nevermind, this was about the other side.

    :D

    I'm both scared and bothered. I'm in the fetal position clutching an AR15 and sucking my thumb. Someone let me know when it's safe to leave my bunker, again.

    That Hilton is just off Connecticut Ave in between DuPont Circle and Adams Morgan. It is considered a nice area of DC and one with lots of access to bars and nightlife. This is not something that DC wants to see on the news and will cause some issues.

    If you aren't aware, there is only one section of DC that cannot be directly accessed by the Metro and it is Georgetown. The residents there have been very successful in preventing the Metro to be able to expand service into the area. Any time something like this shows up on the news, the anti-Metro crowd of Georgetown point to it as a reason to keep the Metro out.

    I’ll have to agree I’m not scared as hell of random attacks. I suspect you aren’t either. That attack was deplorable. My bet is there was some perceived slight before this so it was less “random” and more criminally expressed anger. But maybe it was random. I’ve seen those sucker punch videos too.

    I have an example for the other side too...just not that one. But yes, there seems to be a strong human tendency to extrapolate large policy needs from single events.

    Were the culprits white or black?

    The media needs to indicate which when acts of violence are committed.

    The tourist didn’t show any common sense when he was out at 1:00 a.m.

    How dare you imply the media should be neutral and not have an agenda?! What kind of a person do you think you are?!

    I think he knows that EVERYTHING is racial to certain people on this board and no matter what he says it will be deemed that way. That's how I took it, and how any person being honest would.
