"From your discussion above I surmize that you do not realize that space itself is sucked into the
black hole such that space is traveling at the speed of light at the event horizon. That is why light cannot escape."

You don't need this type of stuff to understand why light can't escape the event horizon or why why the local coordinate speed of light is measured to be c at the horizon.
