Did you not read the article? The story is about the suspect being arrested. What the story doesn't report is that the killer had already been in prison for burglary and released back in July 2010 - way ahead of what his release date would have been if he had served his 7 year sentence. It is also interesting to note that the killer is black and the victim is Hispanic but we see no involvement of the Justice Dept. or the FBI. No outcry proclaiming a civil rights violation for the Hispanic victim. No outcry from the NAACP condemning senseless violence. Where is the national news coverage of this event? Funny how things work, isn't it?

I apologize for asking if you read the article, unknown. I see Topix had the links crossed now. There is an update to this story on another thread.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
