    In life there are choices. He choose to rob someone, someone decided to keep himself from becoming a victim.

    The report does not state race which is as it should be. Wrong is wrong regardless. Is thug a racial slur?

    Why is it that every thing is racial? Did you ever consider the rules of law? Should there be different laws for blacks and whites.

    To Officer 1, Does the term thug denote a racial slur? I have used this term before & did not realize this.

    the law is not working for many so they are taking it into their own hands. although i personally myself wouldn't be withdrawing money from an ATM at 1:30AM!!!

    We WILL be seeing more and more of this as people are going to TAKE back the rights that are being taken from us through Liberalism and hand tapping in the name of "equality".People have had enough of children growing up under a sense of "entitlement" and see nothing wrong with robbing,stealing or anything else that gets them what they want without having to work for it!!!!
