    May the people who died today rest in peace. To the people posting comments on this story with bitterness and hatred, wake up. Crime is all around your little happy little bubble world. Don't have a couple of drinks with dinner at the restaurant. You may be the next person you are posting about. There by the grace of god go I. Fools!!!

    How about the white American owners of the motels where 4 died from recent rampant heroin use? LEOs also monitor those places and nothing happens and illegal activity continues. What do those owners claim, that today's world is against whites? Or LEOs just don't care?

    Well said, Shannon. These crimes continue to happen and the filth that run these places won't be held accountable.

    The problem is that law enforcement's hands are really tied when it comes to dealing with these people. The minute they come on site to enforce the law, they cry racism.

    That's what I'm saying, did you not understand before? Get over the race and deal with these issues that are ruining society. A jab at "immigrants" was made first which distracts from the drug and other illegal activity -it was clear and simple from the first comment.

    That may be the case for other "establishments", but that does not apply to this story. The fact that it is ran by immigrants is only a part of the comment. The fact that it caters to illegal activity and crime by not enforcing basic city ordinances such as discouraging solicitation, reporting probable drug deals and other obvious crimes occurring on its premises to the police dept. is another much larger piece of this, which you are conveniently ignoring in your posts that seem obsessed about race. Get over race and start dealing with issues. Such as crime, protistution and a culture that promotes both.
