BREAKING NEWS: Black Friday Shopper Shot
8news ^

Posted on 11/29/2013 8:01:48 AM PST by traumer

LAS VEGS -- Metro police are investigating a shooting that injured a Black Friday shopper.

It happened around 9:45 p.m. Thursday. According to police, a man purchased a big-screen television from the Target near Flamingo Rd. and Maryland Pkwy. While he was walking to a nearby apartment complex, a suspect approached and fired a warning shot, causing the victim to drop the television.

Officers tell 8 News NOW the suspect then took the television to a nearby waiting vehicle, where a second suspect was waiting. As the first suspect was loading the television into the vehicle, the victim approached and tried to get the television back. That prompted the suspect to fire several more rounds, shooting the victim in the leg.

The victim was taken to Sunrise Trauma with non-life threatening injuries.

Metro has not released a description on the suspects or their vehicle. An investigation is ongoing.

" Metro has not released a description on the suspects or their vehicle. An investigation is ongoing "

BS !!!!

If the victim is still alive and could have seen both suspects then they know the description is of the suspects.
Political correctness is keeping the description of the suspects out of the news until they can some how spin this thing.
It's called reverse profiling, non-description of suspects because of race.

The suspect will surface after he sues the victim for pulling out his back while lifting the stolen TV.

“Redistribution at its best.”

Same thing, government or thug. At the point of a gun.
The only difference here is the paperwork and a slight
chance that the government might be a little more polite.

“Black Shopper Shot by Black on Friday”

That would be a little ironic ... except that the incident occurred on Thursday: It happened around 9:45 p.m. Thursday.

I'm astounded that I'm the first poster to observe this!

“I have the right to take your property. You don’t have the right to keep what you own.”

That sure doesn’t sound like a conservative to me. Theft is a very dem/liberal mindset.

Since so many people seem to be in love with hyphenated descriptions of themselves, I would like to coin a new term that is appropriate in describing them:

"Third World-Americans"

Black Friday seems to be awfully quiet down here on the MS Gulf Coast - anyone noticing a lack of shoppers in their areas?

I heard that a lot of places were a bit crowded when the places opened last night, but this morning even Walmart has less than an average light crowd.

Maybe more folks are actually becoming aware that the economy is a bust, despite the stock market numbers.

No reason to state the obvious.

It's not. Breaking News articles are listed under Breaking News on the forum home page.

Does Free Republic use sarcasm tags at all?

FReepers caught using sarcasm in posts are first heavily zotted and then burned at the stake.

When the local news reports the crime, they’ll have to show a blank screen when they end the segment with, “Viewers are asked to help by contacting the police if you know the suspect or recognize the vehicle.”
