How Exceptional Was Strom Thurmond?

From: A Texas Reader

Note that this story (Shooter may have killed fetus, too   By Holly Edwards, The Tennessean, Jan 7, 2004) DOES NOT MENTION that the two killers were illegal aliens.

"Two young men charged with shooting a pregnant woman as she lay in a vacant lot could face an additional murder charge of killing the woman's fetus, a detective investigating the case said yesterday.

"Tracy Owen, 32, was due to give birth any day and may have been in labor when she was killed early Monday morning, said Metro police detective Robert Swisher.

"Antonio Dejesus Idelfonso, 17, and Eliseo Marcelino-Quintero, 22, told police they killed the woman because they thought they had hit her with their pickup truck and were afraid they would get into trouble, Swisher said."

After getting suspicious of the names, this being in the non-border state of Tennessee, I read further and found that indeed they were illegals. It was mentioned at the far end of a second article.

Talk about biased reporting!  Was this newspaper afraid of offending someone?  [Ask it].

Here's the article that barely mentions that the killers were illegal aliens—but you have to read all the way to the last several paragraphs to find this out:

'Nobody deserves to die like that' By Holly Edwards, The Tennessean, January 9, 2004

Paragraphs 32 and 33, in their entirety:

"The men worked odd jobs for subcontractors and were in the country illegally, [Nashville Homicide Detective Marvin] Rivera said.

"The detective said he did not know how long the men had been in the country."

Thought you might want to mention this.

[VDARE.COM note: We do want to mention it. Rest in peace, Tracy Owen and baby.]
