CARY -- Seated in his wheelchair, Nolan Turner, 12, staked out his neighborhood Thursday evening to sell water bottles and raise money to bring his wheelchair basketball team to his elementary school.

“Everybody at school has been asking me what it’s like to (play basketball) in a wheelchair, and I want to show them,” the Briarcliff Elementary fifth-grader said.

He had already collected more than $250 – kept in a bucket – of the $1,000 needed to bring the experience of playing wheelchair basketball to his schoolmates.

But as he began to work the neighborhood near High Meadow Drive about 6:30 p.m., a man he didn’t recognize grabbed his money bucket and unhurriedly walked away, according to Cary Police Department Capt. Mike Williams.

It is simple robbery. I would put a rope around the thief’s neck and leave him hanging for 24 hours on the corner of a large street intersection as a warning to others.

That really is sorry.

If this gets enough publicity someone will probably donate the entire thousand. Lets hope so.

“leave him hanging...”
We do not rehabilitate these kinds of people.

The thief looked like Obama when he was a young man.

Hey! Obama been laudin' that "don't let a crisis go to waste," I'm just trying to help. The MSM are doing their part. I want to help our president too.

Am I being a bigot to assume that since race is not mentioned the thief is black?

I heard that Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton were on their way to protest this crime against a disabled person, but turned around when they found out the kid was white.

I also heard that Jackson was going to France to protest the killing of three French soldiers, a Rabbi and his children, but when he found out that the soldiers had served in Iraq/Afghanistan and that the civilians were Jewish, he cancelled his trip.

Outrageous imagination on my part, or closer to the truth than you think? Jackson’s silence is in my favor.

“The thief looked like Obama when he was a young man.”

That would explain why “white America” didn’t care when “replacement Americans” killed the Newark “school children”; they are ALL irrelevant.

Liberal Americans are paying a price for the Hispanics they’ve imported to kill our blacks; the piper is awaiting his payment, which is political offices formerly held by blacks.

From the link:

Police are still searching for the man who took the money. He is described as black male with a tattoo on the back of his left arm. He is between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall, in his 20s, and has very short hair or is bald, Williams said.

Words fail me. The boy has spina bifida, like my little grandson. Life is unimaginably difficult every day in every way, yet they have the ability to be happy, optimistic and productive. Unlike the able-bodied scumbag thief.

See #17 if you haven’t. Hint: you were very pessimistic.
