No I am so SICK of these thugs robbing other poor people. A couple of weeks ago a Black man and woman robbed passengers on a BUS!!! Do you know who rides the bus? Us. They robbed young and old. So no tears from me. If you steal Big you get little time…if you steal little you get Big time. She should get more time for being stupid. Everyone knows there are cameras everywhere.

    The economy did not do this.  This has no excuse.  People I know what it is like not to have a job becausee of my age.  I cannot prove that my applications are thrown in the trash, but I am not crazy either.  I have been out of work for nine years, and manage to pay my mortgage, and utility bills.  There are many legal ways to pay bills, picking cans up off the street, pick up pennies from the ground, and eat what you grew up on.  The most important thing a person can do in order to make it is….stop watching the Jones.

    Barbara, its more to it than that.  You don’t see anything wrong with the sentence she received?  You need to stop defending white racists and their constant railroading of people of African descent.
