If Gonzales is here legally, and I do mean legally, he should have been armed.

Regardless, how stupid to drive home when being followed. When being followed, call the cops, tell them what's happening, your location, direction of travel, your vehicle description, and then the suspect's vehicle description. The dispatcher will find the closest cruiser to you and might even direct you toward responding officers.

7 grand is not very much money for a season of Fruit that comes to about 583.00 a month during the year. Not much to live on is it? It does not matter what color you skin is you have the same rights any other American Citizen has regardless of race. For those of you who think this kind of thing is ok because he is not white, this kind of thing only hurts you as the consumer. Let me explain!! when a business is robbed and on item is taken, the business has to sale at least 10 of the items to make up for the one lost item. So business owners will increases the price on the item to make up for the one lost item. This comes out of your pocket.

Do you think who ever did this will stop at just this one mans business? Have these criminals who have such a low regard for life stop at just one business? What if your business is next? Stick to the issue of the story and not the skin color, besides your breaking discrimination laws with your comments of slander.

This guy is a citizen. Just by what he told the police in English proves that. Save the remarks for the real illegals.
This guy and his ancestors have been Americans in Colorado longer than any of you.

Am I missing something? I read that it was 7000 for the weekend, not the season. Your math was fine, had that been for the whole year.

Not the math is fine if you consider how many times and what quantities a farmer will be able to take his goods to market. The story did say it might put him out of business. Even if it is half his goods he will find it hard to struggle to stay in business.

I Don't understand why people make comments about hes legal status for the record Refugio is LEGAL... All VENDORS at The Flea Market including my self have A sale's tax... you get the sales tax at downtown we report the sales we make... these is for the Idiots that talk shit with out knowing how things are....

Refugio sales at the flea market himself and he also sales in whole sale... let me explain Idiots welfare people what that means... he has people that sale fruits and vegetables for him he's good in business... people hate that you can't see a Hispanic person doing good because you racist people come along with your racist comment....

and before you start to talk bullshiett about me and for the record American citizen.... am American my self... am not a illegal alien....

I don't know if you seen my last comment.... I sell at the flea market Refugio works there too... We have a sells tax we report every sale we do, we pay taxes Refugio has hes business for year's...
your soooo worried about the IRS knowing about he's sales... don't worry about that the IRS knows about he's sales and mine too... hahaha worry about your welfare people that depend on the government... at least we work for a living we are not parasites like the welfare people you should be happy that Refugio and me and many people that sell we doit for a living we don't depend on government help we have brain to do a living...

I hope that answers your question....

How about we start this little debate with you learning to speak and spell correctly! As to why I am concerned about his legal status, it's because I am extremely concerned with the illegal alien invasion of illiterate, uneducated criminals and their families spreading across my beautiful Country like a cancer, a pestilence, a disease, wreaking havoc wherever it spreads to, sucking the life blood out of hard working, tax-paying real Americans.

I brought up Gonzales' legal status because if he is here illegally, well he shouldn't even be here in the first place, and secondly, if he is here illegally, I'd have no pity whatsoever over what happened to him. It happens to Americans daily at the hands of illegal swine alien crap from Mexico and all areas south.
