This guy is the lowest form of scum; targeting those least able to defend themselves. Hopefully, he'll either be caught soon, or break into the wrong house and get his fool head blown off. I hope it's the later ... save us the cost of a trial.

Why not have a few cops dress up as old ladies/men, and shoot to kill when this bully tries to take THEM down???

Perverted Justice uses decoys to entrap would-be pedophiles - why not have a similiar vigilanti type group grab guys like this??

Come break in my home brotha! I have a surprise for you! What kind of a loser does this to old people? I hope this breaks into the wrong home one of these days and leaves the house on his back.

Okay, so catch him, charge him and then what? Plead it down to vandalism because he broke a door? Give him probation? 6 months/do 2 months? Nothing? What do you do with people who have such a lack of personal character that they would ever think of doing this kind of thing in the first place? Do we really expect that something is going to make him have a change of heart and all of a sudden be something less than a big hocker on the sidewalk of life? I'm not saying that the death penalty is appropriate for every transgression, but crimes against the elderly, the disabled and children requires a certain kind of devil's soul and I don't know how you can fix that?

Sent them to work camps like the Soviets had, Gulags. Anyone who survived a stretch in one of them always kept their nose clean lest they be sent back. But, cannot do that, these scumbags "have rights". More and better "rights" than the persons they prey on.

Once again you are wrong...

"More rights"?
"Better rights"?

Name one right that a "scumbag" has that you don't.

Name one "better" right.

Vicitms have "unhired" lawyers they are called Prosecutors they are the one who represents the victims. However; I do agree the criminal seemingly has more rights then the victims when caught. They have a right to representation even if they can not afford it, they have a right to a fair and speedy trial, they have a right to be treated (more) humanly then their victims were in the crime, they have a right to be protected by the constitution and if by some mishap they are mistreated they have the right to have the ACLU and or NAACP climb all over the system to protect their rights. Where as the victim, has a right to confront their attacker, they have a right to sit down shut up and let the prosecutors decide the fate of the criminal and they have a right to HOPE they may recover some restitution for their losses.

That was the point I was trying to make regarding the rights of criminals as opposed to victims. You have explained it far better than I could have without all the confromtational gibberish of some others. What I meant to say and possibly didn't make it clear was that if a criminal has no funds they are appointed an attorney to represent them. Aren't they called Public Defenders?

Hmmmm, all I hear is crickets from our "name 1 right defender".

Don't forget drug or mental health treatment, that any working person would have to pay for, ummm, lets see, free food, boarding, utilities, and medical care when incarcerated, and some cases a college degree.
and most times no restitution, so the victim again becomes victimized by our judicial system, being that most judges figure if they were stealing they'll commit more thefts to pay off the restitution.
Once again another right to life liberty pursuit of happiness and sovereignty all tossed out the window, while Johnny useless Leech gets his free ride to recovery from society.

Lets not forget the cable tv, or gym to work out in that John Working Citizen has no right to unless he pays a cable company or a gym membership.

Its true. My Irvington neighbors are all buying guns and ammo before the Obama administration is sworn in. This is not only gun freaks. The lesbian couple in their late fifties living next door to my parents have always proudly kept self defense weapons, but now they literally beam with pride over their growing arsenal of protection. The elderly on our street are particularly nervous after being targeted time and again. A nasty rash of home invasions in our neighborhood by blacks wanting drug money has pushed the neighborhood to arm itself. Whatever you may think of rascism, the steady increase in violent property crime in our neighborhood by non-resident blacks is freaking out the homeowners. If the police can't protect us then we'll protect ourselves. Its a failure of law enforcement. They solve a lot of crimes. After the fact. People don't want to be victims. We're funny that way.

Fool...

We all have the SAME rights.

The right to cable tv? Ha...

Tool, when someone else gets free what you have to pay for, then NO YOU DONT!
So whats your address? So I can start sending you my bills and MAKE YOU pay for them.
I mean afterall in your eyes that wouldn't be infringing on your rights, and if you can't afford a gym membership too bad, according to your logic, its my right for you to pay my membership for me.

Justice is blind or haven't you heard? But I suppose politicians, hollywood stars, and millionaires walk because they have the same rights as you and me..........NO because they have better access to rights via money, so if their money through inheritance or whatever gives them better representation in a court of law,.....THEN NO WE DONT ALL HAVE THE SAME RIGHTS, or sentencing in itself would be the same across the board.
