Whether or not any crimes were indeed commited remains to be seen, hopefully by a fair and just justice system. But calling these men and touting them as (Gypsy) scammers is not only racist but unlawfull,,How do you know the nationality of these men? ARE YOU AWARE that the word gypsy is derogitory,? Had these men been black would blast them as a roving bannd of (N word) scammers,,we are a destinct and regognized race going back many thousands of yrs. Many of us died at the hands of nazis ect. 8 am not defending crime ( if any was commited) but I am tired of race calling any and everytime something like this comes up, Perhaps this county calls hispanics (wetbacks) or italians degoes, ect. Ill keep an eye on future incedents to make sure all are treated equally..all those nasty (non arian) trash that enter polk county....

If you feel that you are working with criminals, it is your moral obligation to quit!! ASAP and if you have skills in the trade you work in may I suggest looking through the Yellow pages for businesses that can give you a honest job, with honest pay because you are accepting money as your salary that is illegally gained. AND FOR THE RECORD most every one of my people that I know have legitimate licensed (YELLOW PAGE ) advertised businesses

No one is holding a gun to anyone's head if there writing the check where's the crime? Start at $600 and end at 6000 shops do it all the time carpenters mechanic shops car sales but that's ok, we work are ass of off spend thousands on equipment and do what it takes a company to do in a week in one day.and for the guy who works for "gypsys" I'm sure you can't stand the money we pay you or riding around in New air conditioned trucks or the food we feed you,
