Yes, Cairo kid, ENOUGH! Unless you make over-generalizations about white American citizens who attack their wives, you are just being a bigot. In case you don't know, bigotry is generalizing the negative actions of one member of a group to the entire group - as you are doing with undocumented aliens. Do you want to even up the score by generalizing about American citizens because Police Chief LaCroix allegedly beat up his wife? Does that make all American citizens wife-beaters? Or is it o.k. when a white American citizen does it? The point is that a man nearly killed his wife and was arrested for it. Let's hope he gets punished accordingly and his wife gets the help she needs to start a new life free of abuse. As for your nonsense about the 'nanny state', please realize that helping people when they run into trouble is the best way to keep a country's economy strong. People who are starving and homeless don't contribute to a healthy economy. When given aid, 100% of that money goes back into the economy - and most of it gets spent at local businesses. Please find another information source than the one you currently use and look at the whole picture before you type another comment... we'll all thank you for it!

Hi everybody, I love the energetic discussion, but since it has veered so far off topic, I am calling a halt to this discussion. Comments will no longer be accepted on this threat.
