Suspects are being held on $1 million bonds for each count.
That's good news.

The country isn't totally insane.

Yet.

Must be an appeasement pitch to the erstwhile upcoming Hispanic voting bloc.

When was the last time before this that black-on-hispanic or black-on-white violent crime was called a "hate crime" by the authorities, no matter no heinous?

Extra credit: what would the liberals do if a black killed a white homosexual with anti-homosexual writings found near the body? Or if a white homosexual killed a black, with racial-hatred writings found near the body?

Cheers!

Downtown Denver is a cesspool. I worked there (1600 Broadway) in the late-70’s. You didn’t want to hang around after work.

Did you perhaps link to the wrong article??

The headline for the linked article reads —

“Mass arrests made in downtown Denver beatings, robberies”

The words ‘bias crimes’ do not appear anywhere in the headline or the accompanying 4-paragraph article....

In Buffalo we had a white kids bet to a pulp and nearly killed.

The reason? He has a black girlfriend and he was in “their “ neighborhood.

The black mayor and the black police chief say this was no “hate crime” it was just thugs.

Even a black pastor made a public plea for the neighbors to turn the thugs in and he called it a hate crime.

He pointed out that if the situation was reversed the black community would be outraged

We just have to be better bellyachers

Downtown Denver is not a cesspool. Downtown is generally safe even at night. There have been a number of incidents besides these attacks, but still downtown Denver is generally safe. Downtown Denver is nothing like areas in other major cities. East and west of downtown crime is higher.

That’s their before con college names. After graduation they go by more wholesome names like mooHamheadackhmedabdullah, and they then have a “religious right” to murder the “religious right”.

Actually, most of the names of the perps are pretty normal. Most of them looked pretty p.o.’ed in their mug shots (too bad, so sad).

“The country isn’t totally insane.”

Yes and No.

Good to see the Denver PD acted...although previous reports were that
they didn’t report this rash of assaults earlier (who can blame
the cops when The PC Police are ready to jump them for no good reason?).

We had a similar attack at a downtown parking garage here in Columbia, MO.
While it’s fortunate that the victim survived, he’s still suffering
neurological problems months after the attack.
Fortunately the crime was recorded on surveillance cameras.

The sane have advocated more use of surveillance cameras here in
Columbia (MO; home of U. Missouri and the School of Journalism
attended by “Uncle Walter” Cronkite). The sane folks are trying to
get a measure on the ballot for the next election pushing for more
surveillance cameras.

The insane folks are fighting “hammer and tongs” against use of
surveillance cameras...although they’d be in places with NO expectation
of privacy.

I do not doubt this statistic. However, downtown Denver is relatively safe compared to downtown areas in other major cities. Other parts of the city provide much more crime.

“Photos of some members of the brain trust:”

I don’t see any hate on those eyes. Anyway, we (white society) created these animals by giving them the justification needed to do what they do, and then rationalizing away their crimes.

I’m to the point of almost not even blaming them.

Beware of how they use the categories.

About 2 months ago, the traitor La Raza Mayor of Los Angeles declared that in 2009, Los Angeles was safer than it had been in the 60’s.

B S !!

I lived there in the 60’s and it was much safer than now.

I left in 1993, and the crime was one of the reasons I left. It is worse now than then, and I still have friends there who keep me informed.

These are FBI statistics friend.

If you like to see them, I'll be happy to show you

Or are you suggesting crimes like murder, robbery, rape etc, are just swept under the rug, go unreported, are ginned up or somehow hidden?

Not hardly.

If you have a link handy for the LA/Denver comparison, please give it.

FBI stats rely on local reporting, correct? Any variation (or skullduggery) in defining crimes could be significant.

One 2005 chart shows Denver with double the forcible rape rate and double the car theft of LA. I have great difficulty believing this. How would you explain the differences? Do the LA suburbs have a higher crime rate than the Denver suburbs? Does LA crime just get more press because it's a more influential city?

Another consideration: if LA has a higher illegal population than Denver, chances are they'll undercount crime because illegals are less willing to go to the police. And if LA criminals are more vengeful and more organized, their victims will fear going to the police.

So it is possible that the Law is more respected in Denver than in LA, which means more crime violations are reported. Your thoughts?

On a tangential note, in the past decades the aggravated assault rate has gone up significantly compared to the homicide rate. This is in part because hospitals have gotten so much better at treating trauma, so fewer victims die.

Ah, found another factor in the car theft rate: Los Angeles makes the top 50 US cities with the lowest car ownership rate. Denver doesn't.

A city with fewer cars per household will generally have fewer car thefts per person, right?

Hey Dumb Ox, the last thing LA needs is more cars...hello... LA has more cars on any given freeway than the *entire* state of Colorado..lol

I'll tell ya what Denver has more of...It has more rapist, burglars, thief's, ,more auto theft, and more of those that commit larceny and assault. Just look at those rape and burglary stats....wow..

In fact, Denver has nearly **3 times** more burglaries, vehicle thefts, and rapes per capita, than Los Angeles.

Probably, but there are still more people without cars in LA than in Denver. So car ownership per person is lower, so it's a less target-rich environment for car thieves, so LA's car thefts per 100,000 is lower.

In fact, Denver has nearly **3 times** more burglaries, vehicle thefts, and rapes per capita, than Los Angeles.

You're missing a key word there: 3x more *reported* crimes.

Like I said, I think it's far more likely that most of the forcible rapes LA gangbangers are doing aren't being reported to the police than that Denver is so much more violent than LA.

And if you're an illegal alien from a country with a crappy government, you won't report crimes like car thefts or burglaries.

As a Denverite, the stats don't make sense to me. How would you explain the disparity between the two numbers?

I think a lot of the problem is that the LA stats are plain wrong and are more likely to miss unreported crimes than the Denver numbers. Why am I wrong?

You're another Dumb Ox that thinks rape, armed robbery, murders, burglaries and major crimes go unreported, or are somehow swept under the rug...Get real..lol...

Face it, Denver has *substantially* more crime per capita than Los Angeles, in 5 of the 7 major crime categories.

Here, maybe a colorful chart, instead of words will help you grasp this.

Why would illegals report burglaries and rapes in Denver and not else where? lol.....Nice try slick.

Here is one image, where tens of thousands of illegals marched or Denver in 2006, making demands and threats, as they did everywhere else.

I'll see if I can find the larger image of this, that clearly shows them marching on the city, from beyond the green bridge in the background and out of sight.
