Am sadend by the Story but I couldn’t help but to read your comment.. I can understand you being upset but conspiracy, c’mon… this is the place we chose to live in and unfortunately, that’s the down side of it..
This news is a very sad one and also disturbing. If nothing was taken from the couple or their house then this may not be robbery that went awry. This is a 2nd incident of cold blooded murder on our community that has not been resolved yet. I remember a story on this website about an Ethiopian store owner who was shot to death in the same city a few years ago whose killers are still out there and not apprehended yet. These killings seem to target business owners which led me to suspect extortion. This type of crime begins as the size of immigrants swells. I hope that is not the case. The other culprit I suspect is hate. The number of hate groups in the West is growing and their main target is the immigrant community. This hatred targeting especially those immigrants who found success by working hard comes from any source. It could be from neo-Nazis, white supremacists or gang groups of any race. My most worries come from the last ones – Neighborhood gangs. The member of such gangs have been preached to the hilt how business in the hoods are taken over by ‘conspiracy’ between former white business and property owners and immigrants. I remember years ago watching Sunday Church service on TV coming out of Chicago. The preacher was a well known pastor who is now a public official. I also remember a face in the crowd the camera showed at one point who was a news anchor on one of the TV stations in Chicago. The preacher went on speaking about the ills in the hoods and started talking about businesses in the south side of Chicago, how they used to be owned by white people (He was alluding to Jewish folks). He told the congregation how those former white business owners conspired and sold (almost given away) their stores to immigrants. He was sure that as if there was a sit-down of immigrants and white business owners to exclude potential black entrepreneurs. You should see how his eyes turned red, his mouth foaming and his voice began to roar shaking the roof off the church. I am sure some of such unfounded and incendiary sermon will circulate in the community. I can imagine how such irresponsible sermons will incite those who can’t see through it. If I ever have the chance to meet this pastor (now public official) I will ask him the following questions:
1) What is the source of his information about the alleged conspiracy? 2) When and where did it take place? 3) Who were (need to name) the organizers and participants who conducted such a conspiracy? 4) If this really happened and he has hard evidence, then why he has not introduced a legislation to hold an inquiry regarding this conspiracy? If true, such conspiracy is a crime punishable by law.
Now mind you all. Think about such groundless and incendiary sermons circulating on cassette tapes and CD’s in such places where gangs rule. The result is – let’s go out and shoot the M-F clerks!!! Let’s go and shoot the M-F ni…. out of our hoods!!!
But in the meantime, in no way I am saying that the sole reasons of such crimes are such irresponsible sermons. This church seems to be big and prominent one and should not be a place for such rubbish innuendo.
My prayers and thoughts go out to the families of the victims. May God Rest Them In Peace!!!
