well you know people are going to do whatever they have to in order to make it. sure some dont want to work but others are desperate and will do what they have to in order to survive.

you don't give the Mexican another pitiful reason to steal

they already have the line , I crossed into your country illegal because " I'm looking for a better life"

now you try to give them the line to use

I was just trying to feed my 6 kids and overweight wife and pay my share of the rent and make my payment on my big SUV with the 26 " wheels that cost me $5000.00 and the $3000.00 stereo.

don't forget my snake skin 24" long pointy boots for dancing

don't worrier about car insurance I don't waste my money on that everyone else pays for full coverage so I don't need to pay car insurance !

they will break any laws they can get away with until they get caught

then they will cry I m just living the corrupt Mexican life dream in the U.S.A.

How sad for you American Man. You have so much anger inside you have to let out your racist angst on Topix. There are many reasons people steal, drug addiction, entitlement, survival....All races succumb to the above and all races will steal. You are so wrong, it's heartbreaking to me that people think the way you do. I will pray for you.

I have been a victim of copper theft twice in the last 5 weeks causing me 25,000 in damage. These a'holes need to be stopped at whatever cost. I work for a living trying to support my family of 4 and now my home is not livable. I am trying to fix it up and these scumbags destroy what I fix. Only a shotgun will fix this and then I am the criminal.

before you fall back to name calling try thinking 1 st.

you jumping to the conclusion only mexican steal is your lack of using your brain to see the obvious things going on around you!

do I need to list everyone as a possible thief , If you're not smart enough to figure out the obvious yourself !

do you jump to extreme conclusion about everything in your life too ?

its like walking in a mind field talking with you !

you must be a hoot to have a conversation with !

this is a equal opportunity country!

Mostly the mexicans about 89 % of the time steeling Good Product to Sell as Scrap .

Since E-verify a lot of mexicans are out of a Job . That Is A GREAT THING !

Now they have turned to their Roots Steeling whatever they can get their hands on !

They should just turn themselves in to I.C.E., so they can get a Free Ride Back to mexico !

they will be cought ,wait and see " they will be mexicans " Again !

im not a fan of illegal mexicans invading this country either but for you to assume that only mexicans are stealing is very narrow minded. dont forget about all the other nationalities that are out of work or have a drug problem . its not as one sided as you try to make it look. try opening up your mind and not being such a hateful racist.

my mind is open and my eyes are wide open

very few things in life is 100 %

my KEY word was MOSTLY !

you should of taken that as 51% to 99% it was up to you to choose in your own mind as a reader.

I'm so glad some people know us so well. Just like most of your ancestors/families we love America and came here to find a better life. But you just see an illegal, thieving, snakeskin boot wearing, fat Wife-having illegal. You think what you want, that's your right. I'll know what I know. I love being here and I work hard for not much money. But my Kids will have a better life than I did. And I spend my spare money on guns. Lots of them! That's what I do. And it's all perfectly legal with my FOID card and legal residence. I hope that bothers you. You'll be the minority "Mr. White" in about 25 years. Then we will RUN the country and accuse you poor white trash of copper theft. It's sad when people are so ignorant. Enjoy your ignorance. I'm busy having 15 kids and taking over "your" country---bye-bye, little minority. Here's a hint. You better learn Spanish! Viva-Mexicans!!

your attempt to belittle american man only made you look just as ignorant if not more. actually it almost confirmed what he had posted. to bad you had to lower yourself to his standards and make yourself portray such a gun toting idiot and thinking that americans better learn spanish. english it the language of this nation so you better teach those 15 kids your talking about to learn it .
