Teens charged with killing a homeless man
over $7 and a case of beer

Two teenagers have been arrested in the slaying of a homeless man found dead at his camp in Anchorage, Alaska.

The two robbed James Gordon Lockery of $7 and a case of beer, charging documents say. They kicked and punched the him several times then left, drank the beer and later came back to Lockery's campsite and beat him to death.

Lawrence Lobdell and Marc Ewing, both 18, have been charged with murder.

These types of news report are so heart rending.

Lately, I seem to be reading more and more articles about violence being perpetrated against the homeless.

What I find particularly sad is that so many folks continue to view the homeless as being the ones who are the danger to society.

Killing a homeless man for 7 bucks and a case of beer.
geez, those teens.
People have no compassion or decency toward a fellow human being.

It would be nice if they get beaten to death for a change.

I blamed the murder of homeless people on the plush activists.

Homeless people in fact are victims of circumstances. Most of them are without hope.
