    Looks like a black person getting ready to rob a store.
    Catch and release doesn’t work anymore they need to be sent to a disciplinary barracks and break rocks for a few years.

    Imagine that… I’m sure your a firm believer that ALL BLACKS are the victims of the white oppressors ? Your people are killing each other off in record numbers each and every year… Your people are also racists just like other races are… I have no pity for criminals, ALL criminals but blacks are the record holders for crime !!!

    Is that a black person actuaully committing a real life, caught in the act, undeniable, unquestionable crime. Wonder if this boy, who I am sure was turning his life around, is looking for some cigars to steal, I mean borrow. Hmmmm.
