Let me start off by saying that I condemn what these five teenagers did to the Sinha Family and in no way am I supporting these killers.

I do agree with STOP ALREADY. Regardless of your ethnic background we are all Americans. There are Caucasian, African American, Asian etc. people that also support the Sinha Family.

I am a Caucasian that lives in the same neighborhood that this took place and I, like many other people from all different backgrounds, have been harassed by the teenagers. My car was vandelized, ice balls were thrown at my windows, remarks called out when jogging etc.

It's not only the Indian community that gets harassed or even killed. Pick up any newspaper and see that young, old, black or white there are killings everywhere, everyday. Unfortunately, this is the world we live in.

I applaud the effort made by the Indian community as well as the supporters from other ethnic backgrounds to bring justice for this family.

Think about this. Is the same effort made for other ethnic backgrounds. Every life is precious, regardless of your background.

Psychology 101: If you segregate yourself you will be treated differently. Everyone needs to make an effort as "AMERICANS".

Hopefully justice will prevail and this will be a victory for all ethnic backgrounds.

I agree with "Let it go". Not everything is based on race, yet whenever a crime is committed involving different races, the media carefully tries to point that out without actually saying it. My opinion is that these thugs would have harmed anyone who appeared to be an easy target. In this case, it so happened to be an Indian family. BUT!: I wonder if the family happened to be a black family, or perhaps a white family whose dad looked real tough, I wonder if these thugs would have attacked. I'm not trying to start trouble here, I'm just trying to figure out whether it was nor was not biased. But, with all do respect to the Indian community, I can't blame them one bit for banding together on this.
