Sick Of Hearing About This Story...

I know it has been all over the news with wall-to-wall coverage on CNN, FOX, CNBS etc... And we all know about the marches being organized, the made-for-TV movies in the works, the various novels and magazine articles being written and (not least of all) the numerous and unending speeches by politicians, both local and national.....still, I thought I'd post it here never-the-less and redundant though it may be.

The Denver Police Department arrested 32 men and juvenile boys after a months-long undercover investigation into what police said were racially motivated assaults and robberies in downtown Denver, including the LoDo entertainment district.

A task force composed of Denver police, the FBI and the Denver district attorney's office investigated 26 incidents in which groups of black males verbally harassed, assaulted and at times robbed White or Latino males, according to Denver Police Chief Gerry Whitman.

All of the suspects are young black males, most of whom told police they were associated with either the Rollin' 60s Crips gang or the Black Gangster Disciples gang.

They are charged with varying counts of bias-motivated assault and, in some cases, robbery — all felony crimes.

"White or Latino"??? hmm.

Just a hunch, but I'm willing to bet that means they once attacked a light skinned Latino they thought was White.
