Reward offered in Durham home invasion

Posted February 4, 2010

— A Crime Stoppers reward is being offered for information about a home invasion and assault on Jan. 23 on Clark Street in Durham.

The victim, a 25-year-old woman, told officers that two men kicked her front door in around 1:40 a.m. They demanded money and punched her several times in the head and face, police said.

The woman escaped by jumping out of a window. She was taken to Duke University Hospital for treatment of her injuries.

The men took the victim’s purse, wallet and laptop computer.

The suspects were described as two black men in their late teens or early 20s. They were wearing hoodies and dark jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to call authorities at 919-560-4582, ext. 29239 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.

    Well, look at the stats - you have mentioned outliers. These particular perps are part of a community devoted to criminality. And who keeps trying to blow up airplanes? Answer that honestly and you will know why some think as they do about various groups.

    I'm not sure why the racist snarkiness is present here. Many people don't realize that when a woman of any ethnic group does something bizarre or horrid in the U.S., in some people's minds, their actions reflect on all women. When a person of African descent does something bizarre or horrid, in some people's minds, their actions reflect on all African Americans. The same is happens for Latinos, Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, people from the Middle East, Asians, etc.

    But few people think that Timothy McVeigh's bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City shows a tendency for all white men to be violently anti-American, or that the Unabomber means all white men are mass murderers.

    I bet they're both straight, too, but does that mean...?

    Put down the broad brushes and prejudices, please, and pick up something more useful, like a book.

    I think they need more community organizing.

    What does the NAACP have to say about their fine out standing citizens again?
