    Home invasion suspect caught in Amherst

    http://http://www.buffalonews.com/258/story/92432.html?imw=Y

    Bflo News: "Town of Tonawanda police have one suspect behind bars in connection with last week's home invasion on Starin Avenue, which they now say was not a random attack.

    Buffalo police officers, acting on a tip, arrested Kevin L. Allen, 27, of Moselle Street, in the Town of Amherst on Tuesday night. He faces charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, criminal use of a firearm, weapons possession and menacing, Town of Tonawanda police said.

    Two men, armed with a gun, broke into the Starin Avenue home and demanded money from the four occupants, before shots were fired."



    ...and yes, the suspect was black.

    I think that most of the serial killers who have been captured have been white ... certainly the most famous ones like Dahmer, Bundy, BTK, etc.

    "Mr. Brooks" film raises question whether compulsion to kill can be inherited

    Can serial killers pass on to their progeny a compulsion to kill?

    That's a question raised by the film, " Mr. Brooks," starring Kevin Costner as Earl Brooks. He plays a seemingly normal and successful businessman with a family and a desire to help others. He's even a philanthropist and Portland, Oregon's Man of the year.

    He also has an evil alter ego, Marshall (William Hurt), which some may view as a dissociated personality, but that syndrome is not the right frame: this is more of an inner conversation externalized. In any event, Marshall is the chatty cheerleader for murder.

    One more player is the driven and dour detective, Tracy Atwood (Demi Moore), who's hot on the trail of the "Thumbprint Killer." The film's main problem is excessive explaining, but the plot twists at least keep it moving.

    Wow, I was surprised at how close those numbers all seem to be until I realized that blacks account for 12.2% of the population and whites account for 67.3 (US Census 2004).

    Unless I'm reading this wrong which is a distinct possibility.
    http://www.census.gov/prod/2007pubs/acs-04.pdf

    I dislike the implication that all blacks are criminals, and I dislike that it appears I am defending such blatant racism, but I dislike the "white guilt" even more.

    So the other 2.2% of rapes that aren't committed by whites and blacks are split between Hispanics, Hawains (sp), and Asians?...That doesn't seem right to me.

    Why do Hawaiians get their own category?

    I don't know, but I seem to recall anytime I've filled out those "bubbles" for "race" there were things like "native hawaiin" and a few other strange choices.
    If it's an issue substitute "Indian" or "Native American".

    Hmmm...well no one wants to be categorized as an "Other" unless they are big Lost fans.
