Thomas Campion displays an alleged Aryan Circle hand sign above a diamond tattoo “patch.” A researcher with the Anti-Defamation League said Campion, slain in June in Nappanee, was the leader of a national white supremacist prison gang.

Ok Rasmus, sorry to upset you, I will try to do better. I have a question though. Recently you edited out a comparison I made of Joe being like Horshack from Welcome Back Kotter. Are you too young to remember the show? It was not a mean comment or threat and Horshack was a really funny guy who got most things wrong, like Joe.

Again, I will try harder to follow your rules but will confront joe every time he distorts the truth about Mr Trump, even though that is your job.

Thank you.

I am too young to have watched that show when it originally aired, yes. I didn't edit out that part of your comment because of the reference, which was not problematic at all, but because a part of the same sentence did break our rules.

I will add this: I do not claim to moderate these discussions perfectly, but I give it a lot of thought before I delete a comment or edit out a part that goes against our rules. I strongly believe that people should get to say what they think, so I don't like disallowing anything, and I try not to do it. Even talking about "disallowing" comments makes me cringe a bit. But we have these rules for a reason, so I am going to keep enforcing them.

Best comment ever by Rasmus!

I agree, "Navy" They go at each other on a daily basis. I believe Rasmus held back until he was fed up also. I don't blame him. I believe those two are in need of a "Time out"

Joe you are a typical lib. Because I think Mr Floyd is a thug, which his record shoes that he was, I am a white supremacist? You are a person who talks really tough behind the keyboard. Are you a tough guy Joe or just rude?

I don't know anything about Hillary's e-mails because she illicitly destroyed all government e-mails. And hopefully somewhere down the road Hill will have to pay the price! Now! Golly darn Joe! I was just trying to show how the Bobby Byrd style racist changed his spots and became a lefty legend. Maybe this fellow in the story might become one of your highly touted leftist heroes. But more on the class of a Teddy Kennedy type killer?

Joe King

still worrying about Hilary's emails huh? What about George Bush's lost 22 million emails? nothing? nothing there? hypocrite...

So who is off topic now JoeY. Fits ya well doesn't is? Catch that JoeY thing? Hiding in momma's pouch is like being in your dank basement. Anyway! That aside. I never heard about that controversy of Bush emails. Probably because Barry O put a stop to any more investigations. I'll give you the info I found. 12/14/09....CNN reported that 22 million missing emails had been found on backup tapes ,and the Obama admin. reached a settlement with 2 watch dog groups who had sued to obtain the emails. These emails were on a Republican National Committee website gwb43.com. The RNC was instructed to not use a dot gov domain for fear of being accused of violating the Hatch Act. So the server wasn't in the closet of a private residence (eg. Killary). Nor was it a dot net, dot org domain! But the mundane dot com! So virtually maybe 1000s of people may have used the email system. I wipe my emails 4-5 times daily. But you know JoeY, they are out there somewhere! I don't have bleach bit like Killary! But I do have the hammer! Back in the pouch JoeY! You can take the mask off !

Shame on you Elkhart Truth for trying to slander a victim of murder who can not even respectively defend himself. Why was it necessary to exploit and assume his beliefs had possibly lead him to be mudered? Why would you mention his personal affiliations as a possible cause of his death, but fail to mention that his friend Greg, who he was with, and was as well shot, is African American? You also failed to mention that this was a "White on White killing" with no racial motives involved in the occurance of his death. Your idea for publicity and public attention is a sad read. You exploited a deceased individual with "headlines" to catch attention. I hope you never have to read about your loved one in a newspaper with headlines that had absolutely nothing to do with their death.

Again, SHAME ON YOU ELKHART TRUTH!

Joe King

Tough feeling sorry for a leader...I mean former leader? of a white supremacist gang..... Aryan Brotherhood? Are you serious....you really want sympathy? jeesh...get a clue..

sidearm

About as tough as feeling sorry for a convicted felon, fentanyl filled man killed by his own drug in Minnesota. Your unspoken support for BLM and Antifa is also noted.

fire111

Gotta agree with you again Joe! Sympathy for a racist? Dang!! But then again... maybe he changed his way! You know! Like that guy Bobby Byrd! Senator Robert Byrd! You know ? That KKK Kleagle and Exalted Cyclops. And hero of the left! Barry Obama said. "I remember him, his white hair blowing like a mane". "His gait steady with a cane, determined to make the most of every last breath". Called the distinguished gentleman from West Virginia! Remember Hillary's friend and mentor? And I thought Plugs McBlindman was going get on his knee and kiss the ring at a Senate session 11/18/93! Every time a tough problem needed solved he came to Bobby the Byrd Kleagle/Exalted Cyclops of the KKK. I know I am sliding more of subject. But shouldn't we be more concerned about KKKers having many dozens of buildings and honors bestowed on them? Tear em all down!!! Right Joe?

Joe King

Sidearm is going on a tangent....but at least we know he cares about a white supremacist and Aryan brotherhood ... You have now lowered your standards even more...shows your real character.

Joe King

Hey Fire....what about Hilary's emails? Or Benghazi? Am I missing anything? Jeesh...try to stay on topic.....

Joe King and Sidearm, I appreciate that you participate in the discussions on our site. I'm sure you are capable of doing so without slinging pointless insults. Still, you two give me the biggest headaches, sometimes forcing me to either not allow or to edit your comments. Perhaps one or both of you feel like I am more after one than the other, but I would ask you to consider that you don't know what I don't allow from others. I think I sometimes let both of you go too far when each of you steps it up slightly in each comment, and then it seems unfair to not allow one of you to essentially respond in kind.

My comment here is not specifically about the discussion under this story, but about your discussions in general. I am asking you to be civilized and to follow the rules.

Joe King

Rasmus, I am sorry I put you in this position. I let my emotions and hatred of hypocrites get the best of me. I will be the better person and will comply and stick to to the facts: no matter what fire and sidearm say.
