Afronerd Featuring Capt. Kirk Airs 2nite @7pm! Topics-Missing Bklyn Hasidic Child Found Dead; Floyd Mayweather Burns $; Lorena Bobbit Pt2 & More!

As always folks, we who practice "afronerd-ism" will always give you a full dish of thought provoking nourishment for your entertainment and intellectual palate. And tonight's Afronerd Radio (d/b/a Afronerd featuring Capt. Kirk) will maintain that time honored tradition! Join Dburt and Captain Kirk tonight at 7pm as they utilize their conservative (and sometimes independent) microscopes to bring analysis to the following topics: more horror-a young Brooklyn Hasidic boy who had been missing since Monday was found dead with a suspect in custody. Dburt recounts another story of a young woman of color who disappeared under similar circumstances minus the extensive manhunt or media attention; boxer extraordinaire, Floyd "Money" Mayweather burns money (literally) in a club in a down economy (with a government debt ceiling that has yet to be negotiated); the questionable actions of a recalcitrant father with a criminal past (video, above) might have led to the death of his 17 year old son; our thoughts on the Atlanta school system cheating scandal; the ghost of Lorena Bobbit looms large with another spousal maiming story accept there's no chance for a microsurgery miracle in this case and lastly as an African-American man heads up a "Whites-Only" scholarship fund.....only in America. Call in live at 646-915-9620 or contribute to the discourse via chat or IM @afronerdradio@yahoo.com. And in the immortal words of Prince Namor of Atlantis-Imperius rex! See you at 7pm!

I listened to the entire show and although any story involving the death of a young child deserves the lionshare of attention, it was the last story that made me SO FUCKING ANGRY, excuse my french.

I am not a callous person, but to the death of the young man, I say, oh well. To the father in jail, I say, oh well. To the idiotic family who feels the young man was MURDERED, I say, you're grieving? Oh well. And with your idiotic rationale that the dad was PROTECTING his son??? With that rationale, which indicates to me that this behavior is tolerated in this family, I suspect you might be grieving over and over again becuz you must feel like the dad handled it properly. I have very little sympathy for the family, the young man, ZERO sympathy for the dad. You know who I feel sorry for? Three people. The two parking attendants, who have to live with the fact that they were forced to kill a young man over some stupid shit. The third person I feel sorry for is the unborn child in the mother's stomach, having this cretin as a father. EVEN IF THEY HAD STOLEN IT, what does this manner of reaction achieve??? THis dad LITERALLY placed a price tag of $200 on HIS life and his son's life and the dad ended up paying way beyond that with his own son's life. I don't understand why they can't charge the dad with reckless endangerment of a minor or something to make him pay cuz HE IS RESPONSIBLE! In regards to the family, I was thinking that maybe they haven't seen the footage, which would explain their misguided conclusions. But I'm willing to bet it wouldn't matter, their attitude would then be, 'Well the attendants had it coming for stealing the perfume.' PERFUME, PEOPLE!!! THE SON DIED OVER A $200 (yeah, right) BOTTLE OF PERFUME!!!!!!

Keep up the good fight, Afronerd, but after seeing this and particularly the reactions of the family, I'm beginning to think all is lost.

BTW, what part of NY was this in?
