Not to quibble, but I your headline implies that these men were killed because they were immigrants (that they were "targeted"). That is less likely the case than "Murders in Peoria target shopkeepers" or "Murders in Peoria target small business owners." I don't think you meant anything by the headline, but I doubt these men were killed for any reason other than they were behind the counter when some jackass punk decided he needed a few bucks.

  • Telling the truth
    "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." George Orwell "I found that to tell the truth is the hardest thing on earth, harder than fighting in a war, harder than taking part in a revolution." Richard Wright, 1944.
  • From the News Release
    PeoriaStory will tell the stories that likely won’t be told by the mainstream/corporate media. It will question local political candidates for their views on controversial topics. It will cover and profile off-beat movements and people. It will take stands on issues such as the Kellar trail. It will also serve as a forum for liberal and progressive events, and welcomes news releases from groups working for the public good. PeoriaStory will be a fresh, new voice for the Peoria area blogosphere, and offer a liberal and progressive perspective for our times.
