“Your Dreamsicles or your life.”
Wonder what would’ve happened if the ice cream truck driver pulled out a 44?
I guess the boy would have no good humor?
"The little bas**rd shot me in the a**."
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.
sending a kid out to do a mans job the lazy bostards can get their own ice cream
No mention of race, so I’m assuming it was those darn Amish again.
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?
Yes, that is correct. Could be Mexican though.
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.
If a Snap-On Truck is ever high-jacked, just send the cops to my place. This kid could be my son.
“Why do you rob ice cream trucks?”
“Because, that’s where the ice cream is.”
‘The suspects are described as black males, 4 feet tall, and weighing about 100 pounds each’....via CBS 8 news San Diego.
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?
The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo!
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!
73 today. Hotter in inland areas.
Obviously, the ice cream truck hit a rocky road.
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.
They made off with a couple dozen quarters and a case of Choco Tacos?
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.
Forgive me. Marketing Guru I obviously ain't, missing the elementary school market entirely!
Have they found this kid yet or are they still sending SWAT teams along in those ice cream trucks???
"You dont have no ice cream! You didnt get none! You didnt get none! Cause you are on the welfare, you cant afford it......You cant afford it, You cant afford it, and your father is an alcoholic! You wanna eat some of my ice cream
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.
