This isn't about the fact that two people were killed, but rather that it was two whites, and that they were killed by blacks. Had they been killed by whites, I'm sure this thread would not exist.

Am I justifying this horrible murder? Of course not. I believe all involved deserve to be punished, but out of justice, not racism.

And, for the record, I am not black.
Your right it is about racism. Its about racists like Sharpton and Jackson. Its about people being so afraid of being called racist that newspapers won't report horrendous crimes.
Its about people so caught up in political correctness that just saying the word "black" gets you in trouble.
Its about people not being able to have a simple discussion without the word racist being bandied about.

And for the record, your not black.

This was back in 2007, if you really wanted this to be known you should have been more vivid when it happen. Now it shove it in our face a year and a half after the fact.

This was an awful, heinous, crime. Why did the media not devote coverage to this?

And let's not stop there. Of the 80% of crime which is committed by black people against other black people, strangling communities, why does the media sit back contently on that?

Why? Because national news is a business. CNN, CBS, etc. are out to have as many customers as possible, so they aren't going to fan the flames any which way that won't benefit them. If you want real coverage, local news is best. And I'm absolutely certain they covered this and every other murder that took place.

and that is a sick crime, those guys had problems, I hope they die a very slow and painful death and rot in hell and I hope someone cuts em off at the limbs and kicks them around like a big bouncy ball.

anyways back to the media coverage, I have heard of some disturbing sick murders here in NM too and most of them will barely get any attention here, I dont know why that is.
A while back there was a black woman who was raped and tortured by several white people in WV and it was on the news for days. Is it because she was black or was in because it was in West Virginia?
