Sinceless crimes in my hood
tears that fall from things not good,

Love was lost and lives was too what would you do if your foot was in that
shoe.

I would cry too and want revenge
I would spill blood of his and his friends.

There will come A time when they all will die And I would not feel justice for the tears that I cry.

"I thought it was good that a lot of people came out, but it's sad that it took this to get them out here," said Mike Adams, 38, a cousin of Gina Hunt. Adams wore a shirt with the Hunts' pictures as he stood outside the sanctuary.

Where were they when the girls were doing drugs and hanging out with dealers?

The Star is doing no one any favors by suggesting that Hunt was "respectable." This was an immoral, irresponsible ghetto slut who had mutliple children with different, absent fathers, none of whom supported her or her spawn. She is qbsolutely typical of the immoral women and terrible black "mothers" who breed and constantly abuse their own children. Hunt chose to put herself and her children int eh company of knwon criminals, drug dealers, and other ghetto low-life slime. She was breeding up exactly the kind of bastar*, vicious, fatherless children of the type who murdered her. "Respectalbe"--my as*! The Star would do better to publicize constantly the vile depths of depravity in which people like Hunt and most of her relations have chosen to live--destroying the black "community" from within and threatening more responsible, more moral, and more law-abiding citizens of Indianapolis.
Why dont you tell us how you really feel! GEEZ...

I know what this family is going through. My son was murder in 1998 while he stood in the streets talking with his friends and another so called friend came high off of drugs and shot him dead and try to kill others.

I am proud of the Mayor for going out into the Africa American Neighborhood's. But tell me why? do it take killing babies for the police to get involve and hunt down the one's who did the killing and found them within days. Where there is mother's still waiting to find out who? killed their son's and daughters. I think the detective's should give 100% to all the killings. This will send out a message that Indianapolis is not going to take the killing's anymore!.

You people should consider the families of these ladies before you say everything you think. Since everyone has all the "right" answers then why is crime so high? Instead of spending useless hours writing negative comments on the forum....try volunteering your time to help these "irresponsible ghetto sluts"! I think Jesus would do that?

With all do respect:
Gregg Ballard is going into the African-American Community because that is what he is supposed to do as the Mayor of Indianapolis. Besides he is the one who wants control of the Police Department. I wish him all the luck but while crime is at an all time hi and employment at an all time low.....he's going to need some luck. Secondly, that is not just the African-American Community it belongs to everyone in this city. Doesn't matter where crime hits it effects the entire community regardless of where you live!

When you die I hope the Starnews says something nice about you too! Secondly, why spend time showing your ignorance by making a blanket statements like you've made. Please don't think that African Americans are the only people that make mistakes...because if I'm not mistaking just a couple of months ago a young white college student from an affluent home killed her newborn baby and put it in the garbage. Just the other day a hispanic man accidently shot is infant son.
If you wanted to make yourself look somewhat intelligent you would say....human beings have the tendency to make costly mistakes! Regardless of your race you are subject to make mistakes!

You know what's really pathetic about these threads? It's not the ignorant racism that gets predictably spewed when ANY story involving an African-American is run in the Star. It's not the fact that the Star doesn't ever moderate these boards, resulting in vicious racial slurs remaining up for days at a time. It's not the poor spelling and grammar on constant display, ironically from the very same people decrying the flaws of other people. What's really pathetic is that the Star bases their ad rates on the number of hits these forums receive. So, for every bigoted comment that would make George Wallace recoil in horror, the Star pockets a little more change. Think about that. Great city you have there Indy.

I think Indianapolis should stay focused on Indianapolis crime....the "white" college student who gave birth and dumped the infant in a dumpster was from Plainfield,IN. and it was her "white" college roommate who saw something suspicious and called the police. And the "hispanic" man who "accidently" shot his own infant was visiting Indy from Texas and someone involved in that case called 911 immediately.
You are correct that "human beings" have a tendency to make costly mistakes no matter their race. The problem here is that I consider myself a "human being" and to put anyone involved in this case on the same level as a "human being" is a little hard to do.

<quoted text> Before you post, please use spell check. Secondly you have no idea what you are talking about, you only know what paper wrote, and at this point it doesn't really matter what she was doing or what she did. She and her child are gone, may they RIP. God is the one that decides when you leave this earth. Gina's other children are and always have been well taken care of by their fathers, one of which I am related too. Spend your time learning to spell, and by the way immoral people also make insensitive comments about the dead.
This is very interesting......how many children and father(s) are we talking about?

You do realize that one of the favorite tactics of racists, totalitarians, and fascists is to systemically dehumanize people? In the pre-Civil War days, it was easy for the South to squelch debate over the slave system, because, after all, the slaves weren't actually human beings. In Hitler's days, it was easy for his party to justify their policies towards the Jews, because they constantly proclaimed that Jews weren't human beings. I might go as far as to say that some people's opinions of Islam are checkered by the philosophy that Muslims aren't human beings.

The Hovey Street murders were horrific. ANY murder is horrific. However, at the end of the day, both the murderers and the victims were human beings. Deeply flawed human beings, but human beings nonetheless. Frankly, I'm more bothered by people like YOU.

Amen to that. If you read any thread on the Star about this incident, you're not seeing outrage over a terrible killing. You're seeing a lot of bigots seizing on this tragedy as a means of publicly venting and/or justifying their endemic hatred of all African-Americans.
