Police in Virginia, Michigan suspect link in attacks

Police in Leesburg, Virginia, and Genesee County, Michigan, suspect three recent attacks in Leesburg are linked to the stabbing deaths of five people and injuries to 10 others in the Flint area.

Genesee County prosecutor David Leyton confirmed in a news conference Monday that Michigan authorities have been in contact with police in Virginia, saying "there are some similarities" between the assaults in both states.

Leyton said the Virginia victims' description of the suspect as well as their description of the suspect's vehicle led authorities to make the possible connection.

Elsewhere, police in Toledo, Ohio, said Monday that a stabbing there fits the pattern of the Michigan attacks and could be linked to the same suspect as well.

    So when blacks attack white people all day long all over the country it is not racism. When CNN blasts 24 hours a day anti-white racist propaganda, nobody cries racism, but a white guy fed up with black violence and official silence on it is immedeately a racist. How about those blacks that killed young white couple in Tennesse? How about the blacks that killed a white student in New York CIty? The media and authorities promptly denied racism there.
