    TX-Armed robbers targeting Hispanics

    Armed robbers targeting Hispanics
    Wednesday, Dec 30, 2009 @10:25pm CST

    Austin police are sending out a warning to people on the city's south side.

    As New Year's Eve approaches, police say Spanish-speaking residents are being targeted in a string of robberies in South Austin.

    Veneza Aguinaga said Wednesday that people are being hit up for money at apartment parking lots at the 3600 block of Southridge Drive and the 1300 block of Southport Drive, near Ben White.

    Aguinaga said one or two men are suspected of robbing people in and around their cars between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.

    The suspects are taking wallets and cash and they are targeting Spanish-speakers.

    "We believe for the reason that sometimes these victims don't have access to banks. Many of them will carry their money with them, making them easy targets," said Aguinaga.

    "Sometimes these victims are afraid to contact the police for fear of some type of immigration thing that will happen and that's not the case."

    Aguinaga said there have been seven robberies in the area since November.

    She said police are looking for one or two black men in their late teens or early 20's in connection with the robberies.

    The men are described as being 5' 8" tall and 150 pounds.

    One suspect was seen wearing a black hoodie with a red hood and red design. The suspects have shown guns so, they are considered dangerous.

    Eva Hernandez lives near Southridge Drive. After hearing about the robberies,
    Hernandez told KEYE-TV she was scared because she's not sure what she'll encounter.

    Merri Bruce, who lives in an apartment complex on Southridge Drive, said she was also frightened to hear about the robberies and has been taking extra caution.

    "I came home from work and there was a letter attached to the door, stating some people have been robbed at gunpoint," said Bruce.

    Investigators are asking people to be aware of their surroundings and to call the police department if they have any information on these robberies.

    I really hate the tone of this entire article which implies that hispanics are being targeted by blacks in some racially motivated string of crimes.

    Yeah, okay....the suspects are black. Are they too maybe hispanic? I notice the article doesn't mention that. But it does say they are targeting spanish only speakers.

    For one, how would they know that any given, random victim is a spanish only speaker? It seems that the only sure fire way to determine that would be to engage the victim in some type of interaction involving spanish. And secondly, wouldn't one need to have some command of the spanish language to effectively hold up a spanish only speaker since armed robberies do require the suspect to issue instructions to the victims during the robbery?

    Gee....is it possible that the suspects are black but also fellow hispanics and that fact has been conveniently left out of the details?

    I hope everyone notices two things about this article.

    One, it racistly compares all Hispanics with illegal aliens.

    Two, it tries to suggest that instead of applying equal justice to robbers and illegals the solution would be to give legal status to illegal aliens.

    Good point, az.
    Of course, this is throwing the race card into a simple problem of illegal aliens (mostly Hispanic) getting robbed of their cash. No bank accounts as they have no valid ID, but they sure are able to get cash, apparently working here with no valid ID (and dropping anchor babies to take care of being provided freebies.)

    This article is disgusting. It attempts to portray all illegal invaders as vulnerable victims, with the remedy being granting legal status to illegal invaders so they then can come forward and report these alleged attacks.

    What a sham!!!

    Isn't Austin a Sanctuary City? Isn't it continually stated that Sanctuary policies are in place so that IAs won't fear reporting a crime?

    I'm so confused.
    NOT!
