Then, a week later, on the night of Sunday January 20, two nearly identical crimes were committed.
About 7, two young black men with a gun broke into the apartment of a couple of University of Rochester students and robbed them of electronics.
About 5 hours later, at midnight, two young black men with a gun broke into the apartment of a couple of Rochester Institute of Technology students and attempted to rob them.
The two home invasions took place in the same neighborhood of the same city on the same night.
In both cases, no arrests were made and no weapons were recovered. One was reported by police to the news media. Not a word was said about the other one.
Why one story was wildly publicized and the other not? One AR-15 led to a happy ending but it would have been a political embarrassment for the Chief LEO who supported the NY Ban on Guns.
I can imagine the bigger embarrassment now that the story is out.
