Last night in Winnsboro Louisiana a black lady was attacked and burned at the local park walking trail. This was around 8PM. She is in critical condition. She had burns on over 90% of her body.
This happened within 500 yards of my kids school. It is a nice area.
This makes me sick.
Amazing what one person is capable of doing to another.

I don't understand people. Wasn't it just last year that two children set fire to another child. Notice I did not say what races the kids were. Doesn't really make any difference. Heck it wasn't reported much at all.
I don't understand the depth of hate a person can have to do this to another person.

This is terrible... but on the subject of hate crimes... IMHO we will never achieve true equality until start realizing that all crimes are hate crimes...
We're all human beings. When people get time or severity added to their sentence for race against race violence.. its just instilling that we are different..IMHO you should be punished for the crime, race shouldn't matter... but there are obviously arguments against that....
But I feel for this poor lady... her life will never be the same...its a real shame...
When a person is burned over such a large percentage of the body that is an ordeal that requires a human to become super human. I can't imagine any recovery scenario more grueling or painful than having every nerve ending screaming excruciating pain to the brain.
Thank heaven for morphine because that is about the only way anybody could stand it.
Then the skin grafts and the endless reconstructive surgeries.
Who could intentionally inflict that on another human?
There truly are soulless sub humans walking among us.

I don't care if it's black on white/white on black/Asian against hispanic/Black on black/white on white or any other combination,You set somebody on fire and that takes the meaning Sick SOB to a new level.There are certain crimes that deserve the Death Penalty and Death by Fire would be one,If they survive, Mandatory life in Prison.
This lady may still die,there is a high risk for infection,and if she lives after going thru the painful Medical Process not to mention the Exhorbitant cost of her Care she will never be the same.

Calling everything a hate crime is just an easy way out for those demanding an immediate answer when in fact there might not be one.
Winnsboro isn't far from our deer camp. I always saw it as a quiet, fairly peaceful area. It has it's crime and local 'drama' like everywhere else, but this is on a new level.... and a very low one at that. That woman will never be the same, if she lives through this at all. Prayer for her and her family is all I can offer her. I do hope she recovers as best she can.
I have extreemly strong feelings towards this kind of violence, and these rabid, hateful animals amongst us need to be put down....

The concept of "hate crimes" tends to escape me. As if it's okay to torch someone you like? Violence is violence--the reason behind it is irrelevant.
I hope she pulls through. No one deserves something like that.

It's not as much about "HATE" as it is "DEPRAVE INDIFFERENCE" to the amount of pain and suffering they are inflicting. Anyone capable of this has no soul or conscience. They know exactly what they are doing and just don't care.I don't understand the depth of hate a person can have to do this to another person.

The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
I don't know how anyone can set another person on fire. I don't care what color a person is. This is a sick crime. I don't look at it as a hate crime. I look at it as a crime against humanity. The ones that did this needs to be put down.
