Taser death ignites racial tensions

There are 623 comments on the www.chicagotribune.com story from Jul 20, 2008, titled Taser death ignites racial tensions. In it, www.chicagotribune.com reports that:

And in a bizarre coincidence, Pikes turns out to have been a first cousin of Mychal Bell, the lead defendant in the Jena 6 case.
