Mass murder in Arkansas
A family of five in Arkansas were shot to death and their bodies were burned in their home. Police tracked down and shot dead one of the suspects and arrested two others. The family is white, the suspects are black. The murdered people are: Edward Gentry; his son, Edward Gentry Jr.; Edward Jr.’s wife, Pam; Edward and Pam’s son, Jeremy; and Jeremy’s female friend Kristyn Warneke.
The stories on this from local news outlets, such as this, are poorly written and uninformative as to basic facts, such as how the police identified the killers.
There is an account linked at Free Republic which is somewhat better. But the police have now placed a “gag order” on the investigation, meaning that they are not telling the press anything. I have not seen any reason for the gag order. But it’s not hard to guess: the authorities in liberal society automatically understand the need to conceal, tamp down, soften, and delay the release of any facts about blacks murdering whites.
Here is an e-mail from former VFR commenter Mark K., a Jewish convert to Christianity, who turned away from the site last year over my criticisms of Sarah Palin. More recently he’s moved in a new direction, attacking me for my hypocrisy about blacks. I don’t go far enough for him. Nothing other than calling all black people animals rather than humans will satisfy him that I’m an honest man. I don’t normally post comments of this nature, but it’s useful for readers to be reminded form time to time of the range of opinion that’s out there.
