CommentsIt is sad how the media make things look so bad. African Americans can never have a fair chance in this distraught world. Society has made it so hard for the average person to make a good living and when they make a bad decision it is turn into some horrible.

CommentsI assume by your post the person arrested is an African American. If so you are the one that made that public not the media.

CommentsThat African American did it to himself. I doubt anyone forced him to do what he did. He deserves what is coming to him. Life is hard for all of us. I am white and I don't find anything easy. Work two jobs, barely get by. And what Noblin did is worse.

CommentsWow Tammy J, we the public didnt know he was African American. He chose this lifestyle which is criminal therefore he subjected himself to the consequences. His race has nothing to do with it.
