And then to read that he's robbed banks & raped ... get him out of society! The 2nd Amendment (foolishly!) gives you the right to own a gun, some will acquire permits to carry in public. But if YOUR life is not in imminent danger & you pull that trigger, you WILL be found guilty of murder. Seattle is one of the safest large cities in this country, so next time you pack that loaded gun when you leave the house, just remember your jury will not be made up of Floridians & 20 to 30 years in prison is a long time to ponder your decision to carry that day.

Thank You. There should be NO reason for ANYONE to use that word, regardless of HOW they pronounce it. Are people that brainwashed by the Hollywood record packaging/selling machinery to think it's OK? Just think, if these guys refrained from using that word*, the outcome of that night there at the Feedback could have (probably would have) ended much happier for all concerned. . We are supposed to be beyond this by now... . * Along with someone refraining bringing their gun to a bar, along with someone refraining from drinking/smoking too much, etc. @Seattle Metro Resident,

Nothing compares to that word in our hearts, minds or souls. Its a word that incites rage and fear at the same time. Imagine always being around groups of people and only ever seeing maybe 1 or 2 people who look like you. Wouldn't it make you feel uncomfortable or on the defense? Do you think Mr. Hood and Mr. Voss would have talked like that in a predominately black bar? Of course not, because at that point they are the minority and would be the uncomfortable ones.

Did Jesus come down to your home and tell you..."Cid is going to hell when he dies!" You believers are comical! Maybe your going to hell for passing judgement!

After following this case I too hope the jury makes the intelligent and well informed decision and declares him guilty. .

Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. . Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. . Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. . Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. . Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” - MLK Andrea,
