This is a horrible thing, being made even more horrible because several people have used it to make attacks against the entire state of Indiana, a place I've called home all my life:http://bookshop.livejournal.com/834653.html
I'm extremely disturbed at the number of people who are using this horrible crime as an excuse to attack Indiana. These were murderous psychos, the kind that can and do exist in every state, every country, every walk of life. They no more represent Indiana than Hitler represents everyone in Germany. I've lived in Indiana all my life, had a black girlfriend here, work with a gay woman, and have never personally experienced a moment of predjudice because of my relationships. Most of the people of Indiana are good people, just as I believe most people of every state and country are -- don't paint us with the same bloody brush.
