Our image abroad
Seriously, the authorities need to get a grip on this sort of thing in the US.....
From Telegraph -- James Cooper, 25, and James Kouzaris, 24, were in Florida when they were killed at 3am in a gangland area rarely visited by tourists.
They apparently accepted a lift from someone they met in a bar, thinking they were being driven home
To people in other countries who're thinking of visiting the US as tourists, we look like a third-world waste-land of lawlessness and violence. It's probably safer to visit Beirut than south Florida. Good grief!
If this was as suspected, a gang initiation, was it simple murder, or was it to murder white people? If so, will Eric Holder get involved because this crime fits the definition of a hate-crime? Don't hold your breath on that one.
