'I just wanted money for my birthday!' robbery suspect tells cops
Chicago Tribune ^ | December 2, 2012 | Mitch Smith and Rosemary R. Sobol

Posted on 12/03/2012 7:21:01 AM PST by ConservativeStatement

After officers arrested Jerry Warren Jr. on suspicion of committing a Wicker Park robbery Saturday, the soon-to-be-22-year-old said he only wanted some birthday money, authorities said today.

His plan didn’t work. Warren, who police say netted a whopping $4 in the robbery, was ordered held Sunday on $125,000 bond. He will have to post $12,500--3,125 times more than he’s accused of stealing--to leave jail.

Why didn’t he ask for some birthday money from Baraka Claus?

Four dollars. That and inflicting blunt force trauma on your victim will get you jail.

And how is this different from the Democrats' view of taxation? He was just redistributing the wealth of a 1%'er to someone who needed it more - himself!

If anything, we should praise him for cutting the government out of the process.

This line alone will stop me from reading any further.
It almost sounds like ‘they’ are saying this is wrong, under normal circumstances I might (like to) believe ‘they’ are trying to show the Irony but my mind tells me todays ‘reporters’ use an example like this to show how UNFAIR the system is to young minorities that are just trying to ‘turn their lives around’.

You don’t expect him to go without a birthday celebration do you?

Maybe he could ask his father for money (EXCUSE ME while I guffaw at my own idiotic suggestion).

Awww, poor kid, it's alright, then.

F'n rich people will never understand, but this unjustly deprived angel had no choice, NO CHOICE, I SAY, but to turn to thuggery, or as we libs like to say, redistributive remedies applied against anyone and everyone with racist potentials. (/liberal reasoning)

“he only wanted some birthday money”

What he needs is a pest control company to remove that spider from his head!

Like father, like sons. Not to worry, he’ll be out soon enough to start quite a few families of his own.

And all those mothers will be financed by the few of us that actually work for a living.

They always have the same look in their eyes in these mugshots-dead, soulless, mentally deficient. It also seems that the eyes are often close together.

In sum, a depraved, feral expression.

Warren told officers, according to a report, "I’m looking for work and can’t find any! Please! I don’t want to go to jail for $4!"

This, in a nutshell, how Liberals have warped traditional American values of hard work and personal responsiblity. Rob someone instead of working to get money, then when you get caught, tell the police you deserved the money and that you shouldn't go to jail. That logic is taught by today's education system and culture.

And Smeagol only wanted the Ring because it was his birthday, so he killed Deagol for it.

Look where that got him.

Gollum.

This reminds me of that poor social worker who was carjacked in a mall parking lot by a sociopath on his birthday. She recorded the carjacking and her killing on the tapedeck.
