    They don't issue permits in NJ unless you can prove you transport an unusually large sum of cash. Other than that, you won't get one here.

    There's a wild card here. Remember that his wife was with him.

    He may have felt the need to resist to protect her. He may have feared (probably not unreasonably) that if he gave them the car that they would take her too. If that happened, he probably would never see her again and she would likely go through horror before being murdered.

    I would agree that the odds are the the perpetrator of a white collar crime would likely have voted for McCain and/or Romney... Yes.

    Although, I might add, the odds are not as great. McCain and/or Romney never even got close to securing 96% of the white vote...

    It's still an irrelevant drive-by

    Which is what makes such situations unpredictable.

    Good point, I wasn't looking at it in that respect that they would take her.

    The biggies is "if he did vote". In other words you nor him know the answer at this time unless you can show evidence of such. Other than that is is so much hot air and generalization.

    "Hot air and generalizations"? In Too Hot? Nooooo........

    Shirley, you jest...

    I already said that it was even more likely that this thug didn't vote... Convicted felons can't vote, and the odds are even greater that this wasn't his first rodeo. Now, why he was free to do it again might be a question for the liberal masses... He was reformed, right?

    So now you're making further assumptions beyond voting preferences. How about saving the loaded questions for when you actually know something about the suspect?

    There was an original report where it said the suspects (more than one) were young black males and they had a description regarding approximate height, etc. But that was pulled and nothing else released. Considering her witnessing it and any video from the parking lot, the mall, and where the car was found, I'm surprised they pulled the description and didn't put out another one.

    Sounds vaguely familiar... George Zimmerman? Anyone?


    Ironic, huh?

    It's not that exactly. But where there's poverty the accepted means of economic advancement is to exploit and hurt others. It's rampant in South America where the Spanish came, conquered, then failed to participate in the industrial revolution that established a strong framework of laws and boundaries.

    Respecting other people, their property, rights, etc is not natural, it's learned, cultivated, developed. It's a greater vision. Unfortunately a lot of people in our country even still are never socialized properly.

    Common sense? You can assert he didn't vote or, that if he did it was probably not for a Republican. I would not call that being unfair although River might ask for a link.

    Ok, i was just wondering. because if this was a white on black crime you know the liberal media would just blow this up. i saw it reported once on the news but then it seemed to blow over; which would indicate that it was a black on white crime which for some reason is not as big of a deal in todays world

    I was asserting the OP did not know if he was eligible to vote or whether he did. Also if a murderer happens to vote for conservative candidates does that somehow indict the candidates he voted for? In other words the post was silly.

    Just saw that. This is another one of those things that make me rethink the death penalty when I turn the corner against it.

    Rule number 1, get a concealed permit and have your hands on it in suspect places. Rule 2, if you are going to pull it, fire it, and Rule 3, it's ok to profile and anticipate the worst.

    Am looking forward to seeing their prior arrest records...

    What's the over/under? 75 pages? 100? Individually.
