    Notice is always a black male …

    How are we supposed to eliminate racism if black males refuse to cooperate with us and quit committing such stupid crimes?????

    1. MIKE says:

      TELL WHITE PEOPLE TO STOP STEALING (BERNIE MADOFF) STOP COMMITTING MASS MURDERS (JEFFERY DAHMER..ETC) STOP RAPING AND KILLING CHILDREN. STOP CREATING THE ILLUSION THAT BLACK PEOPLE CREATE THESE CRIMES WHEN WE ALL KNOW WHITE PEOPLE COMMIT MORE MURDERS THAN ANY OTHER RACE.

    dont get me wrong, but i keep on asking more and more often lately,
    why cant we- i mean normal, law abiding citizens carry a weapon , legally, of course- it looks like all these bandits attacking people have easy access to them
    if they would be in the news that they got shot by the victims when trying to rob or rape them, maybe theyll start thinking twice before doing this
    by the way…..i think we need that guy- charles bronson- from the movie- death wish- to make some order here

  11. Everyman says:

    That’s right. And wonder when they will wake and smell the HD
