Do you really think only blacks commit such crimes? There are plenty of good people of all ethnic backgrounds as well as sc*mbags.

56% of all murders and robberies are committed by blacks which make up 17% of the population...

I believe they said it was The Summits or something like that. The room vandalized was on the first floor and the douchebag robbers came in through an unlocked bedroom window.

yes, that's the 5th violent home invasion + rape in orlando all within the last 60 days. Suspects seem to have similar characteristics.

And that's the reported ones only. A lot of other home invasions go unreported, at least on the news.

Does not make your avg, law-abiding, tax paying citizen feel safe.

This was my thought as well.

There are some very nice apartment complexes, in addition to condo/townhome developments in MetroWest. It would be nice to know where this took place.

I don't think so, the math says credit cards and cash, instant gratification. Drugs are everywhere in small amounts and electronic devices while valuable must be pawned or sold on on the street which requires time and effort. What is unusual is the raping, I wish that the Sentinel would do a detailed feature on these crimes, shed a little light.

Metrowest seems like a bad place to live. Sandwiched between all the bad parts of town. Car break ins and this kind of stuff.

I lived in a very nice apartment complex in Metrowest off of Raleigh Street when I arrived in Orlando in 2002. Unfortunately, although the complex was very nice and new, it was crawling with roaches. We had to spray the apartment every week so that they would go to the apartment next door for a few days. I then purchased a nice house in Metrowest. I was lucky enough to sell it before the crime wave hit. In Baltimore, there is a very nice community called Guilford, which is next to a ghetto community, similar to the situation in Metrowest. In order to decrease the crime in Guilford, all of the roadways from the ghetto into the neighborhood were blockaded with concrete barriers. This arrangement only allowed one or two entrances through the community. If the entrances to Metrowest were barricaded, for example Raleigh, Metrowest Blvd, and a couple of others, leaving only Hiawassee via Conroy-Windermere or Colonial as the only entrances, I'm sure this would decrease the crime in Metrowest. If they could do it in Baltimore, then I'm sure they could do it in Orlando.

Thank you Sentinel for reporting the facts on the perps and not trying to be excessively Politically Correct. Is this a turning point?
However,
This incident is tragic and has been happening TOO much lately.
WHo can we vote for, or what can we do,... to get such thugs permanently off the street, or better yet inside the gas chamber or in the electric chair.(without 20 years of appeals for the lawyers to get rich on)

I could care less about the color of the suspect, I'd just like to know specifically where the attacks took place.

<quoted text>Why? The drawing of the suspect is a black man; the witnesses describe the suspects as 'black men' so what's your issue? It's not racist when it's an identifying fact. If anyone reading Post#14 wants to take the facts of this story and turn it into an opinion about ALL blacks then that's up to the individual. You are the type of GWL that has invited in the political correctness that is destroying the truths that exist in society.
Stop pushing your race War agenda here, Skinheads. How do you know if the victims are black, Hispanic, oriental, ect? Yeah, you don't, you just post this crap all over these boards to bring people to your rally's.

Summit Apartments, off Metrowest Blvd. If you live in the area, you can see the news vans around the complex all weekend. It's across the road from Valencia. I do not believe this is Random, these are targeted attacks.

Thanks for the information.

I live off Arnold Palmer Drive in a townhouse right around the corner from there.
