Everyone forgets to factor in when it benefits the mentally disordered “Hispanics” are counted as whites and when it hurts Caucasians then they are separated or whatever makes whites look the worst. I guess what I’m saying is I wouldn’t be surprised to see violent and horrendous crimes even lower for Caucasians if the truth be told.
AS a Christian I know and believe that God and Jesus have people of every tribe and ethnos as part of His family and kingdom. In many ways separation would be best in the USA cause the serious housecleaning that needs to occur in dysfunctional communities can only happen from within. I see no sign of that occurring. In fact quite the reverse. I’ll also add I believe many in the black churches are worshiping the government and people idolatrously and the one as their messiah or Jesus of their own making.
I know I’ll get creamed for saying that and how all the churches are just a shell of what they are supposed to be and all have their problems. God knows who is being built up into the body - wheat and tares together. Unfortunately the outward churches - liberal will probably join in the NWO drive for harmony and brotherhood and embrace a false system in their desire for peace and compassion. I can’t embrace lawlessness and the dissolution of the USA for false promises. I’ll be the Christian hater and bigot in need of re-educational diversity. God help us all!
Hoodie weareers? whodda think it?
> The victim may have been black, he chased down one perp and tackled him before getting hit. lets face it, most white guys cant move that fast and the suspects were built like football players....
Built like football players because they have time to workout all day because they don’t have a job. Same as when they’re in prison.
One was ZERO's son. . .
I really can’t thing of a good reason to NOT carry a sidearm, concealed or otherwise; legal or otherwise.
Subhuman pieces of $h!t.
“What is the attraction for stealing cell phones do they sell them for money?”
“I saw a guy on public transit the other day who was carrying a hammer (his long T-shirt hung over it) in his back pocket. No, he wasnt dressed like a carpenter and he didnt have a tool box or a tool belt.”
Well, I’m thinking its time we ban hammers...
These cowardly animals run in packs and only prey on the vulnerable. Maybe it’s time to use decoys with the Calvary waiting in hiding to come out and finish them off when they attack the decoy.
Looks like the guy could be Obama’s son...
Why even steal when they’re given out for free? Unless it was “better” than the obamaphone.
The black thugs learned years ago not to carry guns or knives as they are obvious assault weapons if stopped by the police.
Instead they carry screw drivers and hammers and claim that they are construction workers on their lunch break.
Boy, oh boy! obama’s got ‘sons’ EVERYWHERE!!!
And doing his bidding for him.
“My opinion is to always carry a sheet rock hammer.”
I see them for sale (used) at the flea market; I haven’t seen any sheath or scabbard, though. They cost less than $5, and are much more portable than camping hatchets...
“These cowardly animals run in packs and only prey on the vulnerable. Maybe its time to use decoys with the Calvary waiting in hiding to come out and finish them off when they attack the decoy.”
The FBI was doing that in Newark decades ago, when Newark fell and FBI employees were being mugged near their offices there. They stopped it because there was no end in sight to the arrests; as long as they put out decoys the animals would hit it.
That’s a shame.
I occasionally “hit” these HD/Lowe’s hotdog stands for a completely different reason.
Beat someone for a cell phone?
They are free NOW!
The though being, why would you let a socialist bureaucrat decide your fate?!? Just no...
Actually that's not true. Working out "all day" won't make you any bigger than a good 1 to 1 1/2 hour workout three or four days a week. In fact it would be counter-productive. Muscles grow on the rest days not in the gym. Also, these guys don't look that buff at all and certainly aren't as built as 90% of the guys in my gym - I doubt they lift.
