    This poor man is a victim of White Privilege, if not for that he would be a fine upstanding black man with normal White person morals.

    Are all Disciples of Christ as racist as you?
    It is amazing how joyfully you seem to publish bad things about black folk.
    From these responses, I can see how racist folk love to read your column and take joy n your apparent racism.
    I’ll bet Jesus is proud of you

    1. Wow. What a dumbass post. He posted about a murderer in the community and you jump to race? His last 4 articles were about “whites” maybe take your racist hood off and see the facts How lonely are you to see everything racist? Someone is murdered and you cry racism. What a joke you are. Prolly a berg and lands supporter too

    2. NO. He publishes verifiable facts. Facts that others hide behind and refuse to publish. Then KN must be racist. They publish this stuff also. Get off that race card bs. a criminal is a criminal doesn’t matter what color you are. Do your research before you post such ignorance please

    3. Why don’t you get out there in your community and try to instill some “love thy neighbor” among the people in your sphere, rather than spouting platitudes about “racism”. Really? Racism is what compelled this thug to murder another human being? And it was also racism that compelled this fool to throw his candy wrappers on the ground? Get real. Change starts with you – not blaming everyone else for the horrific outcome of stupid decisions.

    4. I see a lot of stories here about dumbass white folk too. Kevin is only reporting news. The Andy Berg, Pedo Rosenbaum, Ted Kmiec, corrupt Kenosha .gov employees,Steinbrink et al get equal attention. Seems to me you are looking for something to whine about. Stop trying to inject race into everything. When white people commit murder, it gets reported in here too.

    5. Hey Anon,
      It’s hard to argue with statistics and facts, kind of like following the science.

      People who ignore facts and make excuses for “folks” that do bad things are a huge part of the problem. Hold everyone accountable for their actions, no excuses, no 5th and 6th chances to turn things around.

      Thugs come in all races and all thugs should be punished.

  5. Funny how so many of you people are upset when KCE only reports facts, but
    have no problem when the MSM does not.
    Stay out of trouble and you will have nothing to worry about.

  6. BLM
    blacks love murder.
    Why aren’t they charged with a hate crime? If a White were to kill a black that’s what they would be charged with. The more they kill each other the less shit we have to put up with.

  7. It’s not the news and details that are published by KCE, but the completely racist comments that are troubling. Lots of hate and vile spread on here, no doubt.

  8. There are some people who make comments about specific races, but it’s free speech.

    Kevin, and at least the majority who come on here, believe all have the right to free speech. Kevin doesn’t promote hate, division, or racism. He clearly reports the facts of the case that are available to him. He is an actual REAL reporter and investigator. I’m grateful for finally seeing someone who is true to what journalism is supposed to be in reporting facts. He doesn’t care what color, nationality, gov’t position, or gender you are….if there is something that should be reported, he does it.

    As a Christian myself, I personally may not enjoy reading some other people comments, but it’s their right to make them…it has nothing to do with Kevin and him accepting Christ as his savior. His reports are based on facts, not Christianity.

    FREE SPEECH is a Constitutional right which everyone in America has right now and I am thankful Kevin allows people to make their voices heard, whether we agree with it or not.
