2 moms, 2 babies: 'My heart is gone'

Full story: The Indianapolis Star

An armed break-in in September at the Near-Northside house where two women and two young children were gunned down Monday held eerie similarities to the slayings.

ever think the prisons are overpopulated with minorities, because sentencing laws are tougher on them? research proves that! a black man will get 3 xs more time than a white person selling the same about of rock. look it up if you can read.

<quoted text>Where are your facts? You say white people commit just as much crime. Then why is it that black's over populate our prisons? Why is it when you see a accussed criminal on TV being led to court. That everyone one in the chain gang is black( sprinkle in a white guy and a mexican) Never said whites didnt commit crime, but are they on TV every night for crime? Are there 9 dead white people in the city this year? Were the nine murders committed by white people? So far I think all the suspects are ???? You guessed it Black. Nobody deserved to die, but when you choose this life style. Thats the harsh reality of it.

As a rule, the vast majority of homicide victims are VICTIMS OF THEIR LIFESTYLE!
A true "victim" does not have a pound of marijuana and a set of digital scales in their house at the time of their murder.
THE ONLY "TRUE" VICTIMS ARE THOSE CHILDREN.

First of all, don't make me have to smack you with my juris doctorate, if you even know what that means. Just because yo b*y*tch Mitch was able to plead down, does not mean he didn't sell drugs, and he definitely was in popssession of drugs- just like Bush had a dui, but was still able to become a professional crook/president. But the horrible and prejudicial comments that most of the rednecks make on here are a reflection of Indiana's backwoods culture.
The police don't know why these women were killed, yet people are making assumptions of these victims. How many scales and how much weed do you think Mitch Daniels, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Bill Bradley, Gore's son, and all the other elitists had when they smoked it? Republicans believe to their deaths in the right to bear arms, but if dead black women are found near guns, then they're thugs and unfit mothers.

Lets just pretend that you really have a juris doctorate...do you not have anything better to do than sit on an Indiana forum when you are in PA??? Please keep your ignorant and judgemental comments there and stop bashing us here. Don't you guys have enough problems of your own???

Here is proof of you live and die by the choices you make. These babies did not deserve to die, but the choices of their mothers (btw where are the fathers?) took their lives before they pretty much started. The thing that I feel sad about is that this will keep happening when drugs are involved. I too believe that whoever did this took what they were looking for, and it wasn't the pot.
Also, I have a college education and a good job, but could not possibly afford $5000 in sweat suits and a $4500 TV. When the police report was made at that location this should have been a tip to the police that unsavory activity was going on at this location.

This was not God's plan. This happened because God gave man free will and some a-holes decided that a life of crime was better than an honest living. This is because those men have black hearts and no morals. This is because of society's self-centered, me-first attitude. This is because material possessions are more important than loving others.
SO, SO RIGHT!!

I don't understand why everyone wants to blame the victims here, this is one of the worst things to happen here and I don't care what the parents did or didn't do, they didn't ask for someone to come in a kill them and their babies in cold blood, this is so very sad, and my heart goes out to the families and community over this. my prayers are with the family over the loss.

I dont cheat the system( foodstamps), by buying 70 pounds of ribs to have a BBQ. If this had been a random act, sure I would be outraged. But it wasnt, they brought this on themselves.There seems to be more people like me then you. Open up your eyes, before you are a next.
So it is your argument that ONLY Black people do these things? White people don't abuse the system????
I am RELATED to white people that have previously ABUSED the system.
So do everyone a favor and just STFU!

Do you know? You've made several references to this statement and the happenings of the residence.

<quoted text>Do any Whites marry before they breed? Here in Indy, there are just as many unwed white mothers, as there are black ones. You feel they brought their fates, on themselves,huh? What if I felt you should be killed, because you're a racist? I would be as ignorant as you are, right? From the sound of your name, The Grandfather, you're too damn old to say such ignorant things. I thought the older one gets, the wiser they get. Well you just proved that theory wrong!
Miss Ignorant, opps I mean Jones. Please back you comments up with facts. Since I remember, not to long ago a report showing that its a 3 or 4 to one ratio of black single women with kids to whites. You want him killed because he is a racist. The door swings both ways. Most blacks are as racist as white people.

This will be my last time commenting to your dumb prejudice ass! Check your grammer usuage in your comment. You cannot say, "This was the same women" and even my 2nd grader knows that "coming" is not spelled with to "m's". You must have left grade school early like you left Marion County! I hope your spouse is helping your kids with their homework and NOT you! Have a good life. Opps, I meant to say get a life!!
Wow, great comeback. Should have quit while you were ahead.

"What affects mankind, affects me, so do not ask for whom eth bell tolls; the bell tolls for thee"
my two year old so can figure this out... Add all of this up...
1. the boyfried was shot and is in a center.
2. do you own a plasma tv worth $4,500? do you own sweatsuits for the amount they did?
3. the father did not like her company.
4. she worked for the state.
5. the police were called there many times for what - not that the cat was stuck in the tree....
6. the father put her in a safe house after the boyfriend was shot
7. she was at her friends house and the father got his younger daughter out of there -why - trouble...
8. there were scales there - not the bathroom scale
9. there was pot - not in the kitchen to cook with
10. there were also firearms- long guns....
11. and no doubt money.
sound like a drug hit to me.
if people are going to d their dirt, please do it by yourself and do not involve the children. both the victims(the adult women) and and suspects will have their just reward. the children are in the hands of the precious lord. do not blame the city, the police officers, not the commissioner or the governor. people are responsible for their own actions. the blame goes to the adult women - thinking that they could get away with things. now who is left - the grievng family members and friends.

Please refrain from posting negative comments as this situation is as bad as it comes. Yes, we all understand there are many "should have, could have, and would have" answers to the whole scenario. However, it will not undo what has already happened. Pray for the two mothers and their children, pray for the families, pray for atonement for all the sins connected to this tragedy.
God Bless and place a shield of protection, love, and peace around the Yarrell and Hunt families today and always. I ask these things in the name of Jesus. Amen

<quoted text>Crime does have a color and its black. Sorry, but the facts dont lie. More blacks die commiting a crime( which the last time I checked selling drugs was a crime) then any other race. So yes, its a race thing.What good does praying do? This whole family knew there daughter was a female gangster wanna be. Dont think they didnt enjoy the fruits of her criminal ways. They like most blacks in the community. Turn their heads, until something like this comes up. But when the TV and media are there . They put on a show for the camera. Then they all want answers. The answer is right in front of them. They choose this lifestyle. Last time I checked they are all offered the same basic education as everyone else. But they choose to not use it. They can go to college alot easier then everyone else. But since they are having babies at a rate of a rabbit. They fall into the cracks. But its everyones fault but their own. There are lots of white, chinese, mexican people etc. Who make bad choices. But it just seems that everyday we hear about blacks. Its usually balck on black crime. Not white on black or even black on white. So your chances of survival are pretty good if you stay out the hood.
Oh boy, where do I start with this one? Your "superior" education must not be worth too much because you obviously never heard of an apostrophe, nor its uses. I'm sorry, but I hear about white child molestors, white school admistrators doing something stupid, white kids drinking & killing innocent people while driving, white parents allowing their underage children to have keg parties, white kids shooting up high schools, asian kids shooting up colleges.

I am 75% black, 25% white. My grandmother's father was the Grand Dragon of the KKK in Chester County PA who disowned her for marrying a black man. Whites don't commit crimes? I could tell you some things my grandmother told me her own fahter did that would blow you tiny little mind. Get real moron.

And another thing how come nobody is looking for the guy who owned the house. FYI maybe thats who the killers were looking for. There is certain stuff the media is not telling public. But I will let you know the owner of the house should have been the number 1 suspect. I will bet you money he knows who did it. There were crap tables and pool tables all in that house. I mean honestly do thing a girl who did not finish high school, middle school furthermore would actually know how to run a crap/dope house? Please somebody go to the owner of the house! He holds the answers!!!!!!!!!!

Well if we are going by your logic then I won't be next either. The problem however is that crime and the world do not go by your logic. Crime happens every day whether you are perfect or not. My Mom was held at gun point and robbed abd she has never been involved in anything illegal. So can you explain why that happened? People break into homes and steal all the time from non drug users. Your ignorance is scary! Like I said before I hope people understand that we don't all think like you.
