Not exactly true. 90% of the crime in black communities is "black on black", in a similar fashion, although I don't know the exact numbers, the majority of crime against whites is committed by whites, likewise for Hispanics. You are correct though that both black perpetrators and victims are overrepresented in crime statistics.

"While the details of the shooting aren’t clear, what is clear is that a black youth is dead, another casualty to America’s insistence by people of all colors to use, exploit, and otherwise misunderstand race relations in this country." THIS is erroneous, so erroneous that one has to wonder if Ransom has joined the Collective. We do not know whether the young man is a victim of screwy race relations, or of his own youthful stupidity, or of a trigger happy (but not racist) cop, or really anything else. That Ransom has jumped straight to blaming it on race shows just how deep the rot has reached.
"chaos is the law of nature, and order is the dream of man." Unfortunately, it looks entirely too much like chaos may be the dream of B Hussein Obama.
ARGGGGGHHHH!!!! The SU-25 IS NOT A FIGHTER!!! It is no more a fighter than is the United States Air Force's A-10. It is a warplane, yes, but it's a GROUND ATTACK aircraft. A fighter's job is to engage OTHER AIRCRAFT. The SU-25's job is to attack GROUND TARGETS, i.e. close air support. It's not designed to bomb targets from 30,000 feet. It not built to mix it up with enemy fighters. It's job is to get close and put the hurt on the enemy's ground forces, the same job as the Apache and Cobra helicopters and the A-10.
A Fair Settlement: Let's see, the city government, effectively in collusion with the pensioners, borrowed money from banks (that they were colluding with) in order to finance pensions and operations? Right. So, calculate how much borrowed money has gone to pensions. All that is flushed, gone. Neither pensioners nor bondholder gets squat of that unsecured debt. What's left of unsecured debt? Well, don't treat everybody the same. Neither the bondholders nor pensions have been honest players, so they ALL go to the back of the line. (Well, they still get ahead of the Federal government, in case anything is owed to it...) If, after all other unsecured debtors have been paid, there's anything left, then go ahead, divvy it up equally between bondholders and pensioners.
