The great thing about American is that we all have the right to associate or disassociate with anyone we like. That is why I don't understand why people get so upset and mad when persons say they won't associate themselves with a certain set of people. There are to many major problems in life to be solved, than for people to sweat the small stuff, such as worrying about who will or will not associate with them. These people are just little fish in the big pond of life. I have never seen superior black or superior white blood. Just red blood! 

The thing about life is that all of us can be on our high horse now, but there may come a day that none of us will know what color person will have to be there for us if we have an emergency situation to arise.  Regardless of the fact that you would never associate with me because I am black, I would not bother you, but if I saw that you were in need, in any way; and your life depended on me assisting you, please know that I would be right there to aid you because of the love I have in my heart for all people, regardless of color, even those persons that feel that I am nothing or no one. Sorry, I could not throw back out insults like I see in your email, but I truly believe in the end,  that LOVE conquers all. 

I am happy to know that you are "finally free"!  I wish you the very best with that freedom. Take care.

I agree with your post excellent job!!!

      I had prepared a lengthy comment to post, but I fear it would have gone mostly unread.

      I'm a white man. And I refuse to have black friends or acquaintances, because of this story, which is nothing new to me.

      It wasn't always like that, but now, since my last black acquaintance died due to asthma complications a few years ago,  I'm finally "freed".  No more black association. NONE.

      And the lottery winner in this story looks to be of the same ilk as the thugs.  He just wound up on the wrong end of the situation, carried out, in a careless manner, by these hoodlums.

      So do you refuse to have white "friends or acquaintances" because of Dennis Rader, Jeffrey Gorton, and the Tool Box Killers???

      To judge an entire race by some evil individuals is pure idiocy.

        Serial Killer Ted Bundy trapped some of his victims that way. He sometimes wore a cast on his arm, pretending that it was broken, then asked some unsuspecting girl if she would help him put some books in his car. When the young woman knelt down to put his books in the car, he would hit her over the head with a crowbar, knocking the woman out. (see the movie entitled, "Ted Bundy" for more information)

        As a man who once lived not far from one of the Hillside Stranglers and met one of them (Angelo Buono gave me his business card in case I needed some auto repairs), I know that those types of guys are out there.

        They are real people and not some fictional characters in books and on the movie screen.

        Everytime I watch the TV show, "Criminal Minds" and see that picture of Hillside Strangler, Angelo Buono in the intro, I am reminded of how I met him on that fateful day.

        I remember how he grinned as he sat in his car and talked with me...like the cat that swallowed the canary.

         

        He probably had a woman's body in his trunk.

         

        I thought he was a con man or something, trying to run a scam on me (there's a lot of con men in Hollywood), but years later when I read about the Hillside Strangler, I learned what was up.

         

        My point is that like the wise man of God, Sirach said, "When you help someone, try to know who you are helping. Give to the godly man but not the sinner."

         

        Be careful, because there are some two legged monsters out there.

          It's possible that I've missed it, but I'm pretty sure that Groppo has never posted anything intelligent.

                    Three of the these people are from Fitzgerald, GA. Rosalyn 22 , Wayan 17 &
                    Earnest 27. Since this crime was plan out. I believe either the murdered man & the 
                    girlfriend may have counted a couple as friends. They had to have visited their home
                    before. His girlfriend had only had seconds to get out of the home to go for help. Either
                    he or his girlfriend talk about their good fortune in front of one of these people. I'm 
                    glad they get arrested. His girlfriend had to be the closest to a window to get out of or
                    near a back door. It only took a few seconds to blow the front door & be in his face in
                    less then 30 seconds.

                      I remember when this guy won and i was very happy for him...Now I feel nothing but pure sadness...I hope these killers get life is jail...I don't want this type of garbage roaming the streets in society...straight up predators..they are ruthless killers...I fell sorry for the girlfriend and the kids who will be traumatized by this for the rest of their lives..the killers really need to pay.But this isn't the 1st lottery killing story I have read.The state should give people the option to remain anonymous to protect the winners not make them come forward to collect their prize...good to know tho.I would never purchase any tixs from this state.

                          All these lottery wins is like a bounty. They need to make names and pictures private. The game is nice but without everybody knowing you won. State + City is sufficient. More protection needed for lottery winners.
