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.
I spent most of the weekend at the Winter Park Arts Festival, so I didn't see all the commotion. But it's not uncommon for me and my spouse to go for a jog right past The Summit 3-4 nights a week.

With all the cameras and gates located at just about all of the apartment/condo/townhome/SFH developments in that area, I'd be shocked if this crime was random. There are far too many neighborhoods they could target that don't have near the level of security.

It's not Random, just like the UCF robbery/rape, it sound like these kid's we're scouted and hit, or at least one person there knows a bit more than they are telling. Both attacks had people who we're in a locked bedroom, sleeping. Coincidence?

The topic headline says rape, and the article says sexual battery, can anyone clarify?

I live in the summit apartments. Pretty quiet as far as I'm concerned. Had a weird incident happen a few weeks ago where a cop was kneeling near my door, I yelled, and he took off. I was coming from the bar and didn't want a confrontation but as he hopped in his cruiser and sped off I ran after him. Anyways, I stood in the roadway in front of my apartment for a few minutes afterwards where then a maxima pulled and I got a gun pulled on me. The simple question of "you good, right?". I figure the two incidents are related somehow. I'm used to living in pretty bad areas so I wasn't shocked or surprised at the actual incidents, only the area they were happening in cause this place seems pretty ritzy compared to my previous residence.
Sick of it

Whites and blacks are very different, and apparently always will be, largely along the lines of social, and/or personal, mores. Martin Luther King said it best, "Do not judge us by the color of our skin, but the conduct/content of our character.” That is exactly how most blacks are judged. We do not judge wild animals or snakes by the color of their skin, but the proven conduct of their character.I am tired of so many comparisons between circumstances of whites and blacks suggesting some measure of unfairness. The most important or greatest civil right is to be free from violent crime! We have an epidemic of black crime in our country!!!
Blacks in U. S. clearly have it much better than in Africa, or anywhere else in the world. How about what the Jews suffered during WW 2 ? There is no place in the entire world where blacks, or anyone else, have so many opportunities. Slavery over 200 years ago was the best thing to ever happen to present day blacks!! It got them to the best country in the entire world!! Blacks the world over would love to live here!! No present day black has "suffered" from slavery over 200 years ago, and it is doubtful that the slaves suffered. Now that they are free we never hear of any of them returning to Africa, or anywhere else their ancestors were from. Further their black ancestors had a lot to do with the slave trading as they rounded up slaves to sell abroad as slaves. Who knows, many may have volunteered.
The blacks have had hundreds of years to get civilized and conform to law abiding conduct, and many have! it is doubtful that any present day black can trace his roots to slaves forced over here. anyway. A large number of blacks don't' even know their fathers! So, slavery over 150 years ago cannot possibly affect them. Plus how many blacks came in on their own anyway, possibly sneaking in such as we experience from Haiti.
I admire responsible and successful blacks, many of whom are known by their first name, such as Oprah, Tiger, Charles, Michael, Mohamed (Ali), etc. I admire all of the black sports announcers. Political correctness prevents us from calling a spade a spade.
There is an epidemic of black crime in the world. Everyone has a civil right to be free and safe from crime by blacks, especially violent crime. The civil rights movement had the wrong focus, as it should have condemned the blacks who are responsible for an epidemic of crime. The do gooder black “leaders” are not demonstrating against such conduct, as they should be!! They harm race relations considerably.(Specifically referring to “brothers” Al and Jessie)
Slavery was the best thing that ever happened to present day blacks. You don’t see them trying to go back to Africa.
Yet those from Viet Nam have been a tremendous credit to our great country, and show their appreciation by working hard, and acting civilized. I have a friend who is from Viet Nam who came over to our great country and couldn't speak a word of English. He started out working in kitchens of Chinese and Viet Nam restaurants, and ended up owning three. There is no place in the world with more opportunities and where life is better.
Not many ppl will say this aloud, but they all sure as hell think it. I respect ANY person of ANY color or background that does good by their country and their neighbor, and it upsets me that we live in a country where we can no longer state truths for fear of being labled racist. I see it with my own 2 eyes, there is way too much crime in the black community and there are way more excellent black people out there than criminals but they are grossly misrepresented by the thugs in their communites...there needs to be a change in throught from black and white to good and bad, and like you said "call a spade a spade", Jessie and Al, tell it like it is and not like it ain't.

let's spell this out for those of you (if this isn't the same small group posting under different screen names) who fail to grasp certain subtle hints, since there seems to be an influx of people hanging on skin color. What the hell does this have to do with crime? Hey, you think black and minorities are all crooks, rapists, and pretty much prone to crime. Guess what, that's whats called racist thinking in the 21st century. There is nothing PC about it, it's just that your backwards thinking doesn't apply anymore. You stop being hung up on skin color or ethnic background, none of you will be called racists. Don't make yourself out as some victim, you know perfectly well what you are implying.

There's always a percentage of bad things happening every where. In many cases however, that percentage tends to get a little higher around people who waste their time pointing fingers. It's not who did it but who's gonna stop it.
