    God bless that poor family on Christmas Eve. Interesting how these white crime news stories have no comments and get no media attention. However, if these we’re black suspects there would be 100 racist comments on here already. So, because you have nothing to say about these white crimes, next time keep your racist comments to yourself. God bless.
