This happened in Oct 2013.

Was this terrible event broadcast on the national news and I just happened to miss it?

How could this NOT be a national news story?

Did you even read the article? Its about the family speaking out now, 2 years later. It's taken that long to put the criminal thugs in jail.

The article states "...All six were soon arrested and held in custody....".

When a crime of that magnitude occurs, the press jumps on it long before the conviction.

Do you know that they didn't and why does that even matter?

How do you possibly come up with that interpretation?

If you have been on this forum long enough (3 days or more), you'd notice that about 80% of the opinions posted concerning this type of crime devolve into "blacks are the problem". The point I was making is that this kind of horrible crime can be perpetrated by a person of any color. A preemptive post, if you will.

This famous case involved a white-on-white attack, with rapes of an adult and a minor and burning victims alive. Cheshire, Connecticut, home invasion murders - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Wichita Massacre involved a black-on-white attack, with gang rapes and execution style murders. Wichita Massacre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

F-ed up. R.I.P.

P.S. Watch, I predict that posts that follow this one will be all about how blacks commit crimes more frequently.

As this illustrates once again, a family's safety is a personal responsibility.

Ten years ago, the supreme court ruled that the police have no legal duty to protect the public. Their job is to perform an investigation of some sort and possibly make an arrest sometime in the future.

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/28/po.../28scotus.html

Making your home unattractive to criminals should be a no-brainer. There are a number of low cost measures one can take to achieve that. Allowing one's family to be vulnerable to thuggery is irresponsible. As is blissfully assuming "the police will keep me safe."

Statistically they do. But how is it relevant to this horrific crime exactly? If someone says pedophiles are more often than not white, you'd agree that is relevant to any given child abuse case with a white perpetrator? Makes no sense to me, but it may to y'all.

I feel the same way. You do the crime, you do the time. Period. No excuses. That home invasion is a despicable act.

Well, you pose something very important. A story like the Wichita Massacre sometimes gets used by some people to justify their own hatred of Blacks. A story like that gets used in a "see, Blacks are like that" kind of manner. The crime committed is disgusting, and focus on the crime itself should be where the focus is put.

One important question is this. What good is discussing the race of the perps? What positive solutions will come from that?
