Interesting that they coerced these people to do this at gunpoint. ;-7

That's tragic.

But I ask why the first poster is making this a black vs. white issue and what this has to do with Don Imus?

What about the other side of the coin..... if they had guns themselves then they could have either A) defended themselves and got away or B) got into a gun fight and died quickly without being tortured, raped, then killed....?

What the hell does race got to do with this not getting covered? People get murdered all the time, regardless of their race and they don't get national attention. Don Imus was a shock jock that was heard all over the country.

Your argument is lame.
