The level of brutality among young criminals reached a new low in Georgia during a robbery in the community of Meriwether County. According to law enforcement, five assailants identified as Justin Grady, Cortavious Heard, and Shanquavious Cameron, Mina Ellery and Angel Harmo are accused of breaking into the home of Dorothy Dow, an 83-year-old great-great-grandmother. At least one of the men had been hired to work in a blueberry field on the property and knew Dow, who had hired him and paid in cash. Sheriff’s deputies say that the men broke into her home through a screen door and assaulted the grandmother while she was sleeping in her bedroom. The men demanded money and the victim stated that she had none in the home. It was then that she was viciously beaten and pistol whipped by her attackers.

Dow sustained extensive injuries, including two broken arms,bruising and cuts to her face. The attackers then left and Dow thought she had survived the worst ordeal of her life, but she was mistaken. The men returned and sprayed lighter fluid all over her body and set the senior citizen on fire. The callous attackers then left the home leaving Dow to die, but the tough 83-year-old showed tremendous mettle. She suffered from a chronic respiratory illness and she had a gallon jug of water in another room for her equipment. With a determination and willpower that would rival someone decades younger, she crawled to the jug of water and doused the flames.

Incredibly, Dow was able to call 911 and police and emergency officials arrived on the scene to render aid. Police were soon able to track down her attackers and have charged them with the assault.

Dow has undergone several surgeries and is expected to be in the hospital for the next several weeks. But the criminal scum who attacked her are now behind bars awaiting trial. They have been charged with attempted murder, armed robbery, attempted arson and burglary.

            Sol Rothstein, an attempt of a jewish holy name is it? an exploiter of the poor and rejected all across the world, now giving your psychoanalysis on a crime in another place in the world that people with ideologies and names close to yours have control over the economics and unfair justice that can drive an otherwise sane person to insanity. If our woman is living a life contrary to good, You and Your kind created the circumstances! Classical potter blaming the clay for the wickedness of his own hands. Mind your own affairs, bloodsucker of the poor! Entertaining yourself off of the misery and suffering of other people. Is this how you justify yourself with what Moses or most likely the Talmut teaches? But you want the whole world to be empathetic to your peoples’ suffering and you have venom in your tongue when it’s needed for others. Remember how your people were turned out of their homes, raped, burned in ovens and slaughtered wholesale for JUST 10 YEARS…A whole people for OVER 450 YEARS are still being fooled and ridiculed with no government paying to restore them psychologically in a country OUTSIDE of the territory where all of this is happening. Unlike YOUR people have been and still ARE even now. Help, don’t add insult to injury. Remember the story of the Good Samaritan, even if you dislike Jesus, don’t be the Rabbi who passed by the assaulted and instead of helping as a righteous priest should, he went over to the OTHER SIDE….

Having children is a NATURAL AND NORMAL ACT.. Further, marriage does not = upstanding citizens dumbass stop using the argument of the conservative YT. You hate yourself.

          • Sol Rothstein on October 8, 2016 at 3:26 am

            I would BLACK the Black men, but I am SURE THEY SAID get an Abortion. BUT YOU BLACK WHORES…too stupid to get married and then have SEX.

            So YOU BLACK WHORES are responsible for bring these BLACK BASTARDS into the world…NOT BLACK MEN.

            Abortions are legal, Birth Control is legal.

            – Black women control who the PROCREATE WITH, not Black men.

            – Black men control who the MARRY !!! Lately that seems to be NON-Black WOMEN.

          • Public_Programming on October 8, 2016 at 11:33 am

            STFU- you sound stupid right there. Any Black man who tells a black woman to get an abortion because he isn’t man enough to take care of his seed is a bum in the first place. Second, not all black men marry non black women. And the ones that do most likely couldn’t find a black woman dumb enough to let him run her credit into the ground and a put up with a bunch of other nonsense. Notice the non black wives they get are usually bottom of the barrel (fat, ugly, etc.), but they trapped ’cause she helped him just about everything he owns.. Go kill yourself with your dumb ass argument.

          • Sol Rothstein on October 8, 2016 at 6:58 pm

            I would PREFER, that an ABORTION occurs, than to have that BLACK CHILD grow up under a single parent BLACK WHORE, and then end up KILLING, STEALING, or being a burden to BLACK AMERICA.

            Sorry but BLACK WOMEN are the problem with BLACK AMERICA. They are ruining BLACK AMERICA, via BASTARD BABIES.

            Black women control their PROCREATION not BLACK MEN. Child support has failed BLACK AMERICA. You cannot demand Child Support from a man that cannot support himself !!! Judges now have realized this and are not putting any real teeth into prosecuting these men.

          • Public_Programming on October 8, 2016 at 10:48 pm

            WGAF about your preference?? Just because a BLACK WOMAN has a child out of wedlock it does not make her a whore.. PROCREATION IS A NATURAL ACT and the ONLY reason humans exist-NOT MARRIAGE. Marriage is a man made institution. There would be no child support court had the sorry ass MALES (Black and other) took care of their women and children in the first place.

          • Sol Rothstein on October 10, 2016 at 3:38 pm

            DAMN ASSHOLE…

            The very nature that she had sex before marriage MAKES HER A WHORE…

            To procreate after sex and not being married makes you a WHORE and your child a BASTARD…

            DAMN YOU BLACK FOLKS are stupid. Learn or google the definition of (WHORE and BASTARD) !!!

            Black BASTARD WHORES move on…NOBODY Checkin’ for BLACK WHORES…unless you doing GHETTO GAGGERS…with homeless WHITE MEN.

It is more abt culture in who and how these young thugs r being raised or not raised. Be curious to see how many of the 5 were being raised by single moms.

        Sir, I raised two children in a single parent home because my husband died serving this sick ass country that I’m not proud of in the least. BOTH those children grew up and followed in their father’s footsteps protecting your right to call black women whores. They both went on to graduate from college, marry start families and both are proud entrepreneurs. Contributing greatly to this sick society. The theory that ALL black children raised in single homes turn out as hideous as these five is simply BS.

      • sdialect on August 13, 2016 at 6:27 pm

        PATTERNS are a good place to start and add POLICY too. In the early to late 80s policy changes in welfare changed so that if a woman wanted to get government help the man HAD to not be in the household. Thus motivating the women to truly put him out or lie about him being there. In most cases the male figure got replaced by uncle Sam’s check. A check that still left the mother short and needing additional funds. In poor communities this opened a number of not so good supplemental choices. D-boys, low wage jobs that took you away from kids that already don’t have daddy in the picture, the pole, hustling, using whoever would chip in. Then next so many laws got between parents and disciplining their children, no authority was well established in the home, only jail had any effect. More policy took reform out of jail, so jail only made you a better criminal and nothing else. Then more policy made it easier to go to jail on support charges, which many of these unguided youth fell right into. Mommy and daddy weren’t on the scene to stop youngsters from become parents too soon, policy at work. And this PATTERN repeats and mutates without end.

        • Sol Rothstein on August 13, 2016 at 9:06 pm

          If that were correct, why hasn’t it crippled WHITES, Asians, and Hispanics? They received FEDERAL AID too.

          The problem is not what the GOVERNMENT DID, but what BLACK WOMEN did and did NOT DO.

          Put the blame where it belongs….on BLACK WOMEN ruining BLACK AMERICA…not the GOVERNMENT.

So to make racial statements like this shows how ignorant you are. Let me guess you were raised by both parents and think like this, ummm shameful. You are not worth the energy or intellect.

He claimed to be a “black Jew”, but then admitted that he is not actually black. He’s not a Hotep, either as he calls for the mass killings of young black men.

            Perhaps. But don’t underestimate how obsessed white people can be with us. This one has claimed to be one of us until he posts something about “you blacks” and states that he is a Jew (he has said that his father is white). I am on another message board where they troll incessantly and black issue-centered social media pages? Forget it. You can’t have a thread discussion on any topic before they are interjecting their “opinions” as facts. They are invaders by nature and invasiveness is in their DNA.

    Like I always say – Black society needs a punishment mechanism to deal with the over abundance of coons and other that harm Black people. The death penalty should be used sparingly, and is ideal for this type of case. When you harm the very young or very old = straight to DEATH (do not pass Go).

    Forget prison! Taxpayers feeding these worthless subhumans forever? They need to be hung, shot, or electrocuted! Nothing less! Screw their civil rights they left those on the Grandmothers burning body!

    Could you imagine if this was 3 white males that broke into the home of an 83-year-old black grandmother, beating her viciously, robbery, and SETTING HER ON FIRE!!! The fucking news media would have this world wide.
