    I am glad you mentioned the Atlanta Child Murders. Few people cover this, even 30 years later. That the black community had a serial killer in their midst, picking off black children, still amazes me. Why police believe that serial killers are only white need only look at this case, as well as that in Louisiana in the 1980s, or the Night Stalker in Los Angeles, to realize that sickos come in every shade and nationality.
