    NO, fifi...SYMPATHY IS ABSOLUTELY NOT REQUIRED...it would be like casting pearls before swine.

    I only hope the 10 a$$wholes and the unfortunate 2 children who witnessed this ridiculous spectacle take a lesson.
    Stupid is as stupid does...and you can't get much stupider than the members of the KKK, obviously.

    A little bit of history might be in order: If you look at photograph archives you will see that women and children attended lynchings and were often proud to be photographed doing so. So what sort of child abuse is it to have a child present at an initiation ceremony?

    Perhaps this thread should be merged with the thread concerning the UK pedophile who was beaten to death. It would make a very interesting juxtaposition: you people seem to greatly favor mob violence in that situation and yet oppose it vehemently when it comes to a fine, patriotic organization such as the KKK. Have any of you actually read the charter and membership oath? Are you really opposed to 'Lynch Law'? Well, the city of Lynchburg is named after Lynch's brother, not Lynch, but I think this nation has never really opposed the imposition of Frontier Justice, Mining Law, The Regulators or the Ku Klux Klan.

    'you people', as in whom?

    I certainly do not favour mob violence.

    But I do feel a certain sense of justice when a group of bigots end up hurting one of their own rather than someone else.

    I'd be laughing at anyone who was stupid enough to fire a bullet straight up in the air and not duck under three inches of steel. Also at anyone stupid enough to allow themselves to be blindfolded, tied to a tree, and shot with paintballs. I just like to laugh at what I consider appropriate natural law for stupid people.
    Just the facts, Ma'am.

    Perhaps you can indeed nominate this guy for a Darwin Award (runner-up). Alot of people fire guns into the air at New Years or Halloween, often with similar results.

    I think the man who discharged the pistol carelessly was a fool, but I see nothing wrong with the event or its participants.

    As much as I hate to admit it, I support their right to free speech and assembly as well. I don't agree with some of their opinions, but they have a right to them.

    BTW Toth, my apology to you for calling you an ahole. I guess I was having a bad day.:dontknow:

    Well, you could say that about the Girl Scouts too. What are your views on the role the KKK played in American politics and justice? Do you think there was anything wrong with women and children being proud to have attended a lynching?

    Yeah, something tells me that you have.
    I have no views on the role the KKK played in American politics. Too dark a subject for me to dwell on. I have no experiences whatever with the KKK. And yes, I do think there's something wrong with anyone being "proud" to watch a lynching.

    Or even worse being proud to let your children watch such a thing.
    Fine they can have there opinions but to propogate murder is wrong whatever the sex or age of the people involved.

    BTW the girlscouts don't encourage members to kill others.

    I agree with you 100% Rozzy. My first thought when reading the opening thread comment was not "Oh my goodness, how terrible for that guy," but "WHAT THE HECK ARE CHILDREN DOING AT SOMETHING LIKE THIS."

    So often times it happens that we live our life in chains, and we never even know we have the key. ...Eagles, "Already Gone"

    When archives show photos of over fifty or sixty women at the scene of a lynching and dozens of children, it is hard to think that anyone thought it improper for women and their kids to attend one.

    Now we have some questions about whether children should be at such things as boxing matches or pit-bull fights. Times change...not necessarily for the better.

    Toth- I know you are trolling for a reaction, no-one could surely admit to being such an imbecile for no reason. So I shall humour you.

    Children should not be present at boxing matches, or pit-bull fights (are those legal in your state/country?)

    Your stupidity shows in the first sentence. "When archives show photos of over fifty or sixty women at the scene of a lynching and dozens of children, it is hard to think that anyone thought it improper for women and their kids to attend one." Do you really think that the pictures were taken by some random journalist? The pictures were taken BY bigots (by invitation only) FOR bigots...you think a snapshot taken of 60 or so people at one moment in time is representative of the whole population? You really need to work on those thought processes.

    Not at all.

    >fights (are those legal in your state/country?)
    I would think it rather obvious that I was not referring to legal events.

    I was referring to newspaper and historical society archives.
    Sixty people was highly representative of the small towns where Klansmen and Klanwomen were most powerful.
