    From left, Allen Ford and Torrence McCall. Denver Police say they have arrested 32 people, part of a sweep to end a four-month spree of racially motivated assaults and robberies in downtown Denver. (Handout)The Denver Police Department announced today that they have made 32 arrests during a sweep to end a four-month spree of what police said were racially motivated assaults and robberies in downtown Denver, including the LoDo entertainment district.

    A task force comprised of the Denver Police, FBI and the Denver District Attorney's Office investigated 26 incidents in which groups of black males verbally harassed and then assaulted white or Hispanic males, according to Denver Police Chief Gerry Whitman.

    Many of the victims were robbed after being assaulted.

    Three suspects, Allan Ford, Torrance McCall and one juvenile are still at large. Suspects are being held on $1 million bonds for each count.



    hmmm....I wonder if this is going to be a news network staple for the next few days? we'll see.

    So what? Good work by Denver PD is what I see. I'd see it if it were 32 whites or Hispanics arrested for assault and robbery on blacks. They're (alleged) criminals, that's what I see.

    what is there, maybe 25000 blacks in Denver? 0.2 % of Denver's black male population committing violent hate crimes all in a short time frame.

    nothing to see here folks, move along now, nothing to see...

    Perhaps it is from a paper? I mean there is no way the msm carries this story.

    As a matter of fact it IS he credited the Denver Post. Or are you going to claim we can not list stories that are not available on the internet?

    Most newspapers have online links, if not he has to put it in his own words and cannot quote the source. Sorry, it's the rules. ;)

    I do not see that in the rules. It says you have to credit the source which he did.
