Secondly..notice yet again the media trying to demonize tea party Americans?

  • I didn't get that from the article. Many people do not understand the need for the census and how the data is used. This year the Census bureau is GPS mapping ALL addresses which is very disturbing to many Americans. I worked this year for the Census Bureau address canvanssing. ALthough I didn't have anything bad happen to me, I did run into a few jerks. A few of my team mates had dogs sicked on them. One was bitten. A gun pulled on them. Chased off of property by drunk rednecks. This is in a county in Mid-Michigan where nothing ever happens. Very little crime.

  • Why do we have to label criminals?? I am so tired of hearing the "excuse" for a murder being that they were racist, they were a homophobe, and now this! Murderers are angry, hateful people. They would probably kill someone even if they weren't "gov't haters." Who ever did this is evil. It's not because they are suspicious of the government.

  • There are idiot extremists everywhere. Look at the guy who shot at the anti-abortion activist in front of a high school. Should we associate him with ALL pro-choicers because he shot and killed a Pro-Lifer? No.

  • In every report I saw about this, there was no mention of tea partiers. What channel do you watch? Abject paranoia and hatred 24/7?

    What happened to this man is criminal--just as any violent crime against any individual is criminal. The fact that FED was scrawled on his person made it appear to be a politically motivated action (these are the exact words from last night's newscast here on the local channel).

  • It's so very sad.


    It could happen anywhere though. In the city where I used to live, census workers had to be careful in high-crime areas, but also in areas with illegals. Many were very suspicious of government workers asking questions. Also look at all the conspiracy theorists on here. People of all types are worried about a remarkable variety of things.

  • This is the same site that was spewing so much HATE towards census workers, where do you think that gets us?

    Hate and violent rhetoric was used , on tv and in print, against Dr. Tiller and look what happened.....

    When you speak of hate and violence and bloody revolutions, this is the outcome. Why is anyone surprised?

    If it turns out this wasn't politically related, do you still NOT see WHY it would be questioned?
