They aren't ALWAYS black...just the MAJORITY of the time. They are trying to make up for the MINORITY status they always complain about.

I would say it amazes me of the ignornace that is constantly written on this sight, however, knowing that millions of people have mental illnesses and only see things through a distorted lens, I'm not shocked. Whites commit the exact same crimes, but if the perpetrator looks like them, it's not half as bad. Get back to work jerks or if your not employed, seek employment. You slime balls have to much time on your hypocritical hands.

thats a shame that punk a%@ whiteboys gotta sit behind their computer and talk trash about black people, but as soon as they run into one on the street they hurry and run across the road or lock their car doors very fast. Lmao, that's funny, I'm glad I'm not a coward that hides behind a screen in the comfort of my own trailer. Lol. Well, at least he isn't out molesting his nephews, sons, nieces, or the next door neighbors infants. Oh, better yet, I'm glad he's not killing his wife and kids for the insurance money. Or even drinking and driving and killing kids on the road and getting probation just so he can go and do it all over again. Black & Proud Baby!
Yeah, black people kill for absolutely no reason at all...much better. Real tough carrying a stolen gun in your waistband. Maybe if you had a "JOB" or something better to do with your time, you wouldn't have to sit on your porch and be a watch dog. Maybe the only exercise you get wouldn't be running from the police after you steal from the white family. Maybe you should look yourself up and down punk. I would never run from you nor am I scared in the least bit of your punk getto lifestyle. Get a job you lazy POS!

Apparently they either took time out from watching garbage to grab this guy. How many places did he hit before they got him, 20, 30. I wonder if this is the guy who hit the 7/11 across the street from the KCSD substation on Forest Hills a few weeks ago.

If it makes any difference, the accomplice was white.

Honestly everything you people are saying about RACE, is HORRIBLE.... This is about 2 people, probably without jobs trying to survive the only way they could at the time with the bad economy. This has nothing to do with RACE... Black or White it dont matter our prisions are filled with both. These people have kids to feed and bills to pay and when your unemployment runs out and there are still no jobs, what else are you going to resort to... And just remember criminals or not, these are somebodys parents and all this in the press and people turning someones struggle into a conversation about race.. whats is this world coming to... DIDNT WE ALL JUST VOTE FOR OUR PRESIDENT TO BE BLACK....

No, not ALL voted for him, and not just "to be black," whatever that means. Think again. Also, I can't believe anyone would condone stealing as a last resort. There are jobs out there for people willing to get their hands dirty and work. Breaking the law should ever be an option. I can't believe people think the way you do.

I was one of the victims robbed at 1 of the 21 places he hit!! I'm still looking over my shoulder and don't like to leave my home. In reading the police report, which was eerie, he was a crackhead & getting back into heroin. So says he. Trust levels are at 0. He went down 20 to 60 years but that doesn't help trust issues. Hell he gets 3 square meals/day, out of the elements, gets to play pool, watch TV, play cards & wth ever else while us victims have to work at the simple things like trust & feeling secure!! He sure as hell didn't rob to put Corn Flakes and orange juice on the table for family!! All black men with a hoodie up on their head, like he was dressed, is a trigger. Sad but true. I'm very cautious and super paranoid when out in public. Just glad this one was caught. He's not the first tho and more robbers to follow even tho its 2012 now. Fricken drugs just ruin people!!
