THIS IS TERRIBLE http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/12/us/12captive.html?ref=us They consider it a hate crime and no doubt there was racial motivation, however I think there is something bigger here. Look at these faces. These are the faces of meth. Do some research and see what methamphetamine does to people. Looks like to me they were on more of a sick, twisted, tweaking out of their minds meth rage then just a racial issue here. Was race an issue, probably, but when they were all jacked up on whatever they were using they probably would have done this to any human being. This is not only a sad story, but scary as hell. Anyone could be abducted by people like this and made part some kind of a sick twisted game by a bunch of junkies. If you have ever seen the "Faces of Meth" posters I would say these are about as close to those as I have ever seen.
