    Also do these men realize they commit these crimes..become a.felon. and what kind of job will they ever get they wont pass a background check…most often a clean background is needed…for the better jobs.if an employer has options..it wont be to hire a violent felon….rental..options dwindle…when u fill out an application ..and it goes on and on…so think twice before you decide that a criminal lifestyle is your career path…your future options and course of life will be forever scarred…

      Ya I don’t think they’re too worried about their career decisions. If they were they would be in school or trying to find a job instead of robbing people who already have jobs.

    what does their race have to do with it? white people rob people too, so do hispanics, mexicans, indians, natives, etc.

    My question is they stopped the cat via on star why didnt the police have the on star tell them where the car was before they …ie …. On star shut down the car??? They could have gotten the person who robbed her.
