Paul and Lidia Marino

Paul and Lydia were ambushed while paying respects to their son in a veterans cemetery, even places of respect and final rest aren't safe The killer was BLACK the elderly couple were WHITE. That's why it moved at the speed of light to the back of the news breadline,,, BLACK on WHITE crime just doesn't sell as well as a WHITE knee crushing a BLACK neck does), Ratings won't pop like it does for a poor BLACK man being tapped out by a rogue WHITE cop... and with that you get the added ratings boost once the rioting and looting starts after all isn't it a real hoot watching a city burn and gutted- Paul and Lidia couldn't breathe either where is the outrage where are the civil rights activist where are the two reverends protesting the disproportionate amount of black on white crime why do we not ever call BLACK on WHITE crime a hate crime Nobody is taking banners to the streets for Paul and Lidia nobody is breathing for them so somebody must breathe for them somebody has to throw kindling atop a bon fire city in honor of Paul and Lidia and since it won't be the media it may as well be me... a nobody Rest in peace Paul and Lidia Marino, killed by a racist in a veterans cemetery.
