(Editor’s note: Colin Flaherty has done more reporting than any other journalist on what appears to be a nationwide trend of skyrocketing black-on-white crime, violence and abuse. WND features these reports to counterbalance the virtual blackout by the rest of the media due to their concerns that reporting such incidents would be inflammatory or even racist. WND considers it racist not to report racial abuse solely because of the skin color of the perpetrators or victims.) Videos linked or embedded may contain foul language and violence.

Four black people are in jail in Detroit for robbing, stabbing, shooting, torturing and killing three white people. Then burning down their house and stealing their car.

Police arrested the suspects last week when they found the murder victim’s car at one of their homes, along with bloody clothing and ID from the victim. In addition to charges for murder and arson and robbery, at least one of the suspects was charged with possession of heroin.

“The nature of the wounds were horrific, all three victims were stabbed multiple times,” said Sgt. Michael Woody of the Detroit police. “In addition, the fire had been obviously set to cover up what turned out to be a brutal murder in an attempt to destroy potential evidence.”

Two of the victims, Larry and Nicholas Bowman, were father and son. Family friends sought out the comments section of local news stories to talk about the crime.

“These pieces of s–t killed my friend and his father,” said Jimi Dowling at the Detroit Free Press. “Larry Bowman has two more sons, one is autistic.”

Said another friend: “One of these men killed worked at an ice rink in Livonia, worked there 6 years, no police record, high school grad. His father also had no police record.”

Read Flaherty’s “See No Evil” commentary, about Google’s intolerance for one particular group that has been producing a lot of mayhem.

Matt Sparks lives 200 yards away from the scene of the murders. “These issues always bring out black vs. white,” Sparks said. “We all know it. But whatever the situation I’m sure a 51-year old man who had a stroke and couldn’t do much. He didn’t deserve multiple stab wounds and a bullet to the head. If that was a white kid killing a black guy like that there would be a bunch of jobless blacks ready to lynch him.”

Photos from at least one of the suspect’s Facebook page are depressingly similar to the social media postings of others involved in black mob violence. Nineteen-year-old Keeshon Lake considered himself quite the “player.” At least if photos of Lake holding handguns, flashing cash, bragging on his baby and displaying gang signs are an indication.

“Search Keeshon Lake on Facebook,” said one local source who asked not to be identified. “He made his profile picture a collage of himself with a pistol 2 days after the murder.”

While friends and family try to take some larger lesson from the hyper-violence, many Detroit residents pegged this for a case of racial violence right away. More than 100 commenters to local news sites talked about black-on-white violence, how normal it is, and how it does not seem to get the same attention as white-on-black violence.

Some of the black commentators were unimpressed. Damon Warren wanted to take the race card off the table.

“And for the ‘those people in Detroit’ crowd, let me be VERY clear: It’s not ‘black people’ out here doing this nonsense,” Warren said in the Detroit Free Press. “I’m black and this is beyond my comprehension; beyond anything I would think to try even in my darkest hour and at my lowest point. This is a twisted, idiotic, mindless, directionless, and consequently depraved, lot who have lost all sense of morality, self-worth and value for human life. That is not Detroit, and that is not ‘black people,’ but it is one heck of a growing problem.”

Deandre Jones took a lot of flack for saying at the Fox website what others call Critical Race Theory: “White people have been killing us for years so I don’t feel bad for ‘em,” he said. “Crackas DID start our problems. … Still do. You people are the biggest savages on the planet. We can have a little history lesson if you want. Maybe if you people would never have oppressed our people or would hire us for jobs we wouldn’t have to sell drugs. White people = commit evil crimes everywhere they go in the world.”

Lots of other commentators said if the victims were robbed, stabbed, tortured, killed and set on fire, it had to be their own fault. Perhaps in a drug deal gone bad. Because in Detroit, black mob violence is not visited on innocent people, black or white.

Police say they have not determined a motive for the slaying.

Marlin Newburn lived in Detroit and graduated from Wayne State University there. He spent the next 30 years seeing Detroit criminals up close and personal in different parts of the criminal justice system.

Newburn is not surprised at the “whites deserved it” kind of rhetoric. He saw a ton of it while a prison psychologist:

“Since Detroit’s first black mayor ‘King’ Coleman Young was elected, the destruction of Detroit began in earnest,” said Newburn. “He began bellowing (seriously) a constant stream of anti-white resentment as he blamed whites as the one and only reason for black failure and their ongoing social suffering.

“Any reason for corruption or incompetence found in his and subsequent black administrations was always angrily labeled a demonstration of white racism. Black people in that now third world shooting gallery continue to believe it without question. The result is that Detroit has become more dangerous to white people than Fallujah at midnight.”

Newburn’s comments echo a popular theme of black talk show host Jesse Lee Peterson, who warns his white audiences to beware black resentment and hostility. Peterson says white people are often afraid to acknowledge that because they do not want anyone to think they are racist.

This racial resentment and hostility has been building a long time, says Newburn. Many noted the resemblance between this crime and a similar one several years ago in Knoxville, Tenn. In 2007, five black people kidnapped, beat, sexually assaulted, tortured and murdered college sweethearts Chris Newsom and Channon Christian.

Then they burned Newsom and doused Christian in bleach.

The chickens are coming home to roost, Newburn said: “A generation of black people have been conditioned to have a knee-jerk, instant hatred for whites, and thus it’s open season and fair game on those who dare venture into the ghetto. The type of sadism as demonstrated by these killers is commonplace now partly because in the preadolescent mind of the black attacker, they are not just robbing someone, they’re ‘getting even and righteously administering payback.’”
