4 Arrested in Strangulation Murders; Crime Scene ‘Heinous,’ Chief Says :

karnythia:

I find it interesting how hard it was for me to find an article with pictures of the suspects. And not a one has mentioned the race of the victims (courtesy of Google I was able to establish that both victims were black men), or any discussion of whether or not race was a factor in the decision to rob & kill them. Now, there’s no question that several people involved had criminal records, but I can just about guarantee you that there’ll be people insisting that A) the white kids couldn’t be responsible despite all evidence to the contrary, B) the white kids are good kids who made a mistake, C) Their families didn’t raise them to be this way, and they are hurt, shocked, and appalled & D) the victims are no great loss because they had criminal ties/records. There will be little or no discussion of who the murdered men could have been or the pain their families are feeling.
