    Ashleigh,

    What I find very offensive is what I just watched you do to the Texas Congresswoman. You were rude, nasty and very unprofessional. Do you think that your law degree gives you some special privilege to act this way? However, what it shows is that the Congresswoman with her law degree was able to show you how civilized people behave when they have disagreements.

    Do you have the facts what happened with the shooting? If not, you should not report it.

    Also, if you were looking to bring peace, why were you trying to pit two Afro-Americans women against each other. I associate your actions to the same type of racism that we are trying to overcome in America!

    Brad has it right. What happened is very tragic, but there should be no rush to judgment. The facts will hopefully determine the legal outcome, rather than hype and prejudice.
