A discussion clip about this case lasting 5-10 minutes of every hour.

    Which is why I now know that one of the attackers is in custody, charged with robbery and murder, and they have the name and a headshot of the second attacker, which has been released to the press.

    In fact, every major news network has been covering this story, and covering it widely.

    So please, don't use that old "US media ignores black on white crime" kinnard. It's totally bogus here.
    That wasnt what I was eluding to. My post has nothing to do with race or anything of the sort so please do NOT assume I insinuated anything regarding racial make-up of the crime.

    Up until yesterday (mid day noonish Friday) this wasnt a blurb on the news media's radar...it happened Wednesday night. All day Thursday it was headlines all over the internet bloggers sites. It wasnt until the story picked up traction by the internet that the story was picked up by the main stream media...Friday afternoon.

    International news groups were running the story Thursday but our media didnt pick up on it until Friday...a day after international media was already running with the story. It was all over Facebook Thursday.

    It just wasnt important to the US media at the time.

    Apparently they were too busy telling everyone Ben Aflac (sp?) was going to be the new Batman.

    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    Violence is such an common problem in the US that something has to be extra special about a case to stand out. Sad but true. Just a beating with no fatality would not have made it big in the media except if race or extreme violence/disfigurement is not a factor in the case.

    "piling on?" Really?

    If any of those people had been relatives of yours I don't think you would be so dismissive.

    Pointing out facts and truth isn't "piling on". If anything it's a warning.

    I reckon there will be enough 'decriers' who look like David Duke piling in on this so it is covered...

    Your 'news' source, the New Nation is a white supremacist website.... you won't find anything about white on white or white on black crime in it.

    Those people pictured are dead. That's a fact.

    Those negroes pictured killed them. That's a fact.

    Blacks commit over HALF of ALL violent crime in the U.S. That's a fact.

    Proven criminal statistics have nothing to do with "white supremacy". You're looking for a way to dodge the truth.

    Why don't you post white on black crime rates with pictures of the criminals and victims? Go ahead. I'll wait.

    So, anyone looking at this story as progressives like you looked at stories like the TM case, are just being racists eh...What a steaming pile of outrageous dung you post here. Progressives are little more than snotty, little children that whine, and get nasty when their narrative is in question....Peace my ass.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    IF it has nothing to do with white supremacy then why the use of a white supremacist website?

    (FYI it shows quite a few whites as criminals as well as white gays and a few Asians, justa GP hate website)

    IF you went to a more honest place to look at the REAL facts-

    84% of the white folks murdered in this country are done in by members of their own race- (DoJ pdf) that means 16% were killed by another race.

    According to 1992 numbers 1 million whites were raped, robbed, killed, or assaulted by a black and 132,000 blacks had a white attacker. since blacks are roughly 13% of the population that seems to say it is a matter of availability not targeting.

    2010 census shows north Carolina is 22% black and they commit 21.6% of the state's crimes. White alone is 71.9% and they commit 66.8% of the crimes.

    According to the DoJ, 2002, interracial crime was 18% white on black.

    While it can be a difficult concept to grasp but rather than say crime by race it is to see crime as a economic trend. Areas of high unemployment and low incomes trend toward crime.

    It is interesting to me that so many tried to put three black men in the truck that murdered the white jogger in Duncan, Ok. when the REAL pictures of the three came out some in here tried REAL hard to claim the white kid either 'looked black' or 'looked like he has some black in him'.

    I know some see the world as a simple black or white place, but it is a bit more complex than that.

    I hope the wait wasn't too long....
