Yet another murder you won’t see Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton protesting . . . or all of the major news networks and media outlets covering like it’s the story of the year. Now, if it was the reverse and four White thugs beat to death a Black U.S. Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq, this would be top o’ the news all over the place. Oh, and “conservative” race-baiter and National Review editor Rich Lowry would be outraged, the way he was for Trayvon Martin (and praised the Black Panthers and Sharpton). But when it’s four Black men beating the White U.S. Marine to death, it’s the sound of crickets chirping.
In 1955 the killers of Emmett Till, a black Mississippi youth, were acquitted because they were white. Forty years later, despite the strong DNA evidence against him, accused murderer O. J. Simpson went free after his attorney portrayed him as a victim of racism. The age of white supremacy has given way to an age of white guilt—and neither has been good for African Americans.

So if it's not about race, why isn't the title of your thread "Did you hear about the human being killed by 4 others? Of course not!"?
Does the fact that he was a Marine or that they are black make it any worse that it happened or that it was under-reported?

thanks for the support. unfortunately some cannot see beyond their own sheltered worlds.
This is a socionational issue that, if not addressed and called what it is, could result in more useless, tragic events.
There is a problem, that's for sure, and the unfortunate part is that people in control do not want to see these problems addressed.
Police have arrested four suspects in connection with the beating death of a former U.S. Marine who was found unconscious outside of a party at a Cobb County, Georgia, apartment complex in March.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Arthur Batchelor, 37, Tarell Secrest, 36, and Jason Hill, 35, were taken into custody on Tuesday for allegedly killing 34-year-old Zachary ‘Zach’ Gamble. Another suspect, 38-year-old Sean Hall, of Atlanta, was arrested on Monday. . . .
All four suspects have been charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and aggravated battery. They are being held without bail in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center, police say
