coffee shop break in

I would be willing to bet everything I have that this guy came from the seedy trailer park across the street. I feel like I have seen him walking from there before.

This hapened on August 24th ?

And NOW the police are asking for help?

Surprised they mentioned it at all.

Wake up, this is the new Democrat politically correct reality, hands off the thugs! The cops are scared to arrest them because they don't want to get sued, the DA's afraid to prosecute because they don't want to get ousted, and the whole nation is cowed by reverse racism because we have radical leftists in the White house and DOJ fomenting racial tension and riots on behalf of the NAACP and other agit prop groups. Besides, prison is no longer a deterrent to these thugs, their pals are all there and it gives them more street cred to serve time. They get right out and do it even worse. The only solution is for an armed populace to defend themselves, the "system" is not going to protect you. The only thing thugs fear is an armed adversary! Make your choice, are you a wolf or food for one?

A bit of Paranoia

Morty, agreed we have a criminal problem in this country and do not deal with the issue well enough, but it sounds to me like you've been watching a bit too much Fox News. Paranoid much? Lay off the Fox. It'll brain wash you.

Yeah sure, leftist!

Call me paranoid, with thugs shooting you for your shoes. Call me paranoid, with the Obama lead regime admitting they spy on every single citizen with a multi billion dollar spy computer in the desert, and have killer drones floating overhead. Nice try whitewashing reality, leftist, now get back to your MSNBC.
