Wonder what would’ve happened if the ice cream truck driver pulled out a 44?

I guess the boy would have no good humor?

No ice cream truck goes down this street, even though there are plenty of kids....

I am betting that Mexican mafia house and that drug house over there have something to do with it

“we can interfere”

Maybe “intervene” would be a better word choice.

No mention of race, so I’m assuming it was those darn Amish again.

The homeowner who captured the surveillance of the ice cream truck said she purchased the cameras because of incidents like this.

What kind of neighborhood is this? The reporter needs to provide more information. What incidents?

My initial reaction to this was: wow, California really is a paradise if they are selling ice cream outside in February.

Because race is so relevant to ice cream truck robberies, right?

well, in this case, it’s likely the perpetrator is black. that neighborhood is known as a bad neighborhood, with mostly minority residents.

it is so tempting to say Good For Him

but of course, that would be very wrong

it is just that if the kid sees his president ripping off for his backers billions and even trillions from us all,

the kid figures, why not just take a popsicle at least?

makes sense, it is just a matter of scale is all...

same idea, same (lack of) morals....

the kid is just learning from his elders is all

and when he grows up, who knows? maybe he will be successful and rip off bigger things too!?

he might even run for public office!?

Well it was San Diego so it is possible it was of those islanders from Hispaniola.

“Why do you rob ice cream trucks?”

“Because of his age this is something we’re concerned about,” said Johnson.

Ya think --

“Is there a pattern here?

Well how many ice cream truck robberies have you had lately?

Are there other issues?

Ohhh I'm sure that in his other life he is a regular boy scout.

And because of his age is it at a time now where we can interfere and maybe get him on the right path?”

He knocks off the Good Humor man with a gun at 10 -- you got some work to do.

Yeah, the weather in SD has been really nice this winter. Lived there for 40 years. Though ice cream trucks more common in summer, you will see them in winter too. These dumb bunnies just screwed up ice cream delivery in their hood. Skyline is mostly minority i.e. black/hispanic. Let’s just say as a white person it may be okay to drive through in the daytime, but I wouldn’t exactly be ambling along with $20s hanging out of my pocket at night.

To be VERY fair, San Diego has largely been free of the nastier virulent “let’s whip up hate against whitey” crap. a) there are only 6% blacks overall demographically. Historically a lot more blacks settled in LA than SD. And a good 35% or so people are hispanic, rest white/asian.

During the Rodney King riots where every where else was like a freakin’ war zone — San Diego had ONE incident of some a-hole breaking a window and the police were on that like white on rice. NO curfew was ever needed because people are just not, as a rule, a-holes. The night LA was locked down with Koreans shooting at looters from the tops of their businesses the San Diego Padres held their game at the Murph as usual. The city fathers (and mothers I suppose) did a GREAT job keeping hot lines open for anyone who needed to blow off steam and talk about the Rodney King verdict.

Toronto and cities way across the country had a LOT more problems than we did. I was VERY proud to be a San Diegian through that period. By and large everyone kept their cool. Also SD does not have Federal Ghetto housing like a lot of big cities back east. Makes a huge difference.

Well now, you don't say? That doesn't come as much of a shock does it?

It’s nice to hear someone speak well of a city.

Maybe someday I’ll be able to visit California, I’ll do my best to include San Diego!

If we gave the kid enough obamaPopsicleStamps, the little rug rat wouldn’t need to break out his 357 to get one. It’s all Bush’s fault for not including obsmaPopsicleStamps in TARP.

I never knew how well San Diego did during that very destructive Rodney King Riot time. Your city should be proud, showing that you can hold on the peace, if that is what most people really want.

.....SWAT teams along in those ice cream trucks???....

In my town we use the Public Library SWAT to ride on the IC trucks. They agreed, provided that we use Country and Western Chimes and that they could be disguised as big tubs of Rocky Road. I am worried that the mini-Trayvons will gun them down while they are distracted by the goodies.

Of course, the numbers of overdue books and DVRs are now skyrocketing. Just one damn problem after another around here.
