    Taking names and kicking arses...

    ...which is fine and great and wonderful, as long as they're not kids -- assuming this is accurate (and lets hope it's just the MT covering things with their typical the-sky-is-falling mentality). Tossing then because they have the dubious distinction of having "Georgian-sounding" names? Truly, WTF?

    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    "Campaign against Georgians is spinning out of control"???

    Really, I don't understand what's wrong in deporting illegal migrants. USA and other countries do it every day.

    Looking for these illegals by checking scoolchildren lists is a bit fishy but not fishy enough to push all that panic all over the world.

    Это еще один пример глупости чрезмерной политической корректности. Это аналогично тому, что мусульмане жалуются на то, что полицейские "дискриминируют" их, то есть что они обыскают мусульман чаще, чем других людей. Дело в том, что большинство террористов-смертников - это мусульмане! Также, много нелегальных иммигрантов в России из Грузии.... Это просто логическая попытка предотвратить проблему.

    логический - when you describe actions or speculation in the process
    логичный - when you say about actions or thoughts that have been already completed.
    Единственное, что люди любят давать бесплатно - это советы.

    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    You don't? Two words - "standards" and "double" - put them in the right order and you've got your answer .
    Show yourself - destroy our fears - release your mask
