NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are looking for a suspect who they say has attacked and robbed four men this month, three of them elderly, by choking them from behind before stealing their wallets or cash.

    That’s it! Ship him off to SPACE CAMP in the Summer….EVERY SUMMER! Set up an arrangement with The Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and use the money that would normally go to prison, to re-habilitate them into Construction Astronauts. It’s obvious that the specter of spending time with Bubba is no longer a deterrent.

    To the Robber: You are now a FUGITIVE. You had better climb on a Spacecraft and head for the MOON. If you stay on Earth they’re going to hunt you down and take you down just like the animal that you are. SpaceX gonna give it to ya.

    Wow, that dude is straight up gay! Even gay folk are robbing people these days! What has the world come to?

    Wonder if the “reverend” fat Albert will address this on his new MSNBC show?

  8. Nec says:

    Typical…. I guess finding a job is out of the question.

    1. Devenio says:

      Kinda hard for a black man to get a job when faced with the racist like the posters on CBS.

      1. Mr Clean says:

        Devenio, do you use toilet paper?

      2. Alex says:

        well, right, who will give jobs to criminals?

      3. Jones says:

        Blacks have an easier time getting a job than whites. Look at the MTA.

  9. ken says:

    a black man, i am stunned!!!

    1. Devenio says:

      Kinda like seeing a white man bilk his own out of billions of dollars. Lets see. Steal $10 from a old dude or steal $20 billion from 5000 old dudes and damn near destroy the economy? See how your blind racism works? Mutants. Gotta love them.

      1. Alex says:

        well, can’t compare financial crime with physical attack…thats pretty much dumb

      2. Reality Bites says:

        Devenio – you are wasting your time, trying to talk reason to the juveniles and high school drop-outs that seem to “infest” CBS’ blog.

      3. Moon Him says:

        Yo Momma so fat the top half of the Spaceship took off without her.
