All eyes were on the search for Kyron Horman since day one when he went missing from his school in NE Portland on june 4, 2010. The sheriff spent over a million dollars (US) in his search and tomorrow will ask for nearly $210,000. more.1
The difference between these to cases is striking: Everything for 7 year old caucasian Kyron Horman, and the bare minimum for Native American 11-year-old Lok Chante Marcellay. Racism is alive and well in Portland Oregon.
How much money will the police chief and/or sheriff ask for searching for Lok Chante Marcellay ? How many web "detectives" will even care about him? How many people will donate money for his search? How much money will the Kyron Horman Foundation donate to help search for Lok? I know the answer and it saddens me that people only care about kids if they are of a certain race. Lets all help Lok's family. Hopefully he will be found today.
