    Good for Scottie! Proud of him and the police who supported them.

    The sign: My soul has no color is spot on.

    The story of the Good Samaritan, if dug deep, says so much.

    Also, Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength and love your neighbor as yourself. Who are we to love? God , yourself and your neighbor.

    Who is your neighbor? Those wherever whenever

    Awesome. He's going to be a US Senator one day...

    And he's absolutely right about building up the community you live in, not destroying it.

    Come on, give the kid his shine without throwing in the police. Yes there are some great policemen and women out there, but this is about what Scottie did.

    So you think it diminishes his shine because the police joined him? I think it enhances it...

    No, that is not even remotely what I was saying. I was saying give Scottie his kudos. I don’t see why you are proud of the plolice who joined him, or mention it in the same vein. I’m a Soldier. If I support a kid who is doing something positive, I’d be confused why someone would be proud of me for doing something as simple as being supportive.

    Scottie makes me proud to be a Gator once removed. I never was a student here, but taught here full-time for 35 years and then part time for a few more.

    Wow.

    I'm not the one who politicized this. I said just give Scottie his shine. The other guy inserted the police into it as an obvious politicization.

    It was in the headline and part of the story that this thread is about.

    Fair enough. I retract my earlier criticism.
