    These poor black people are so oppressed. If they weren’t involved with all this crime, they wouldn’t have to whine do much and think the police were such meanies. It is kind of ironic, they hate the police do much yet depend on the police when they have a problem.

      You are speaking in broad generalities. I live a street over from where this happened. My neighbors are good people that just want to live normal lives. It only takes a few bad guys to make everyone’s lives miserable in a neighborhood. So yes, my neighbors and I are very grateful they caught these criminals. Please consider the way you think about how everyone thinks and behaves. At best its bigoted and short sighted, at worst it’s downright racist.

    Can’t wait to see if the 3 were convicted felons, carrying. If they were they should be put in jail for a very long time to keep the people safe. Odd to flee if you’re innocent.

      @Confused -I’ll take exception to your last comment ‘Odd to flee if you’re innocent.’ We’re told that black people fear for their lives around police so they’re just trying to stay alive…..right….

    I can bet and put my balls on the line. I am very convinced all three are felons and are all on probation! ! Chop off my balls if this ain’t true!
