This morning's news does something to answer our questions as to the motives behind the possible "hate crime" that occurred this week in West Virginia. CNN reports that the victim, Megan Williams, may have had a previous relationship with one of the suspects. Furthermore, all six of the suspects have been arrested numerous times prior to this incident and are "familiar with law enforcement". The mother of the man accused of raping Miss Williams, Frankie Brewster, was tried for first degree murder in the 1990s and spent 5 years in jail on the lesser charge of manslaughter. Clearly, this family had many prior encounters with the legal system. Knowing what we know now, are they "evil" or is this a product of the American justice system failure to rehabilitate? Whose fault is this?
