Based on the "odds" he probably didnt vote at all. The biggest political "party" is non-voters.
Come to think of it, the odds are greater that they didn't vote; convicted felons can't vote, and I would be willing to be that this isn't their first violent crime.
Again, not saying it would save him absolutely. However, my aunt was a victim of a carjacking with a gun to her head and she handed her keys over. They took the car and left. So at least it gives you a chance.
What's the relevance of perps potential vote here?
I also hesitate to mention this out of what will likely follow; however, that the news outlets removed the descriptions of the alleged attackers reads more of worry about backlash than anything else. Originally when I was watching the news they had said the wife had described them as young African-American males. Now, it could have been retracted because she isn't sure, or because the video showed otherwise. But it seems kind of odd that with her having seen them and there now being video available that they haven't released a description of the suspects involved.
Obviously, they will vote for the candidate who is most friendly to their particular profession; violent crime.
Because it's Too Hot.
I doubt seriously a hardened enough criminal that did something like this bothered to vote for anyone. But that's just me.
Odd are if they have a record and would do something like this, they probably can't vote.
So, the car owner is at fault for his own death because he didn't give these animals what they wanted?
BTW, when I was carjacked at gunpoint, the thugs were both wearing masks. I knew that the odds of my surviving the encounter increased ten-fold. Had they not been wearing masks, fighting for my life may have been the better option.
The victim is just that, a victim. All that I was saying was that he might have stood a better chance by handing the keys over. His death is not his fault and the blame lies with the criminals. And again, going off of what I'd been taught plus what happened to my aunt.
Bringing the ugly and ignorance again to Too Hot. Good job
Having lived in Philly for 6 years, SW Philly is the scariest area to be in as a white person
North Philly isn't far behind
It absolutely stunned me the first time I went into North Philly on accident while taking a detour to work, like a 3rd world country.
I understood immediately why people take to crime so easily.
Police will often instruct people not to resist because it can make matters worse. Someone willing to point a gun at another in furtherance of a crime is already of a troubled mindset. The heightened nerves of such a situation only need someone to resist for the offender to over-react, or just respond in a way that can ensure they'll get away with the crime. It's not blaming the victim, it's recognizing that based on the odds, there are better responses than resisting.
Truth truly hurts, huh?
That your comments are (typically) ugly? No.
Apparently in Dave's world, violent criminals are all single issue voters. I mean, maybe they also feel strongly about abortion or reforming the tax code.
Of course, the victim(s) in this crime did not have that option... And the criminals knew this.
You don't read well, do you?
Did you miss the part where I said it was likely that these animals didn't vote?
I did not miss it, but you've been all over the place on this thread, because you wrote this later:
I just found the idea of a violent criminal concienciously weighing the issues as to how they affect his career like the average middle class voter somewhat humorous.
And? Do you think that hypothesis is inaccurate? Using another comparison, do you think a person who is dependent on the government for their very existence would vote for the republican or the democratic candidate? Why?
Same thing. You just don't give potential criminals the benefit.
