if anyone sees these guys, they won't report it because the judicial system automatically discriminates against you based on race. doesent matter that there are black officers.it is still a terminally racist country.may you be free foreever mr. post office raider.

I hope that they arrest this thug for the crime. I couldn't care less of excuses made about "racism" or the fingers pointed at police officers or the justice system. This guy is a thug because of what he did...not because of society.

I was raised poor (spending my childhood in a migrant farm working family). During our trips to the north, I heard people call my dad a "wetback." However, we NEVER thought about committing crime because of how we were poor or how others treated us.

I have no tolerance for violent criminals. I have less tolerance for those who make excuses for them.

Logic would actually dictate that you have less tolerance for the violent criminal who can injure & kill others.

True, Hmmm. However, I do think that those who defend thugs actually empower them by a strange form of peer pressure.

I have been around some people who actually blame cops even when a person is actually in the wrong. They often blame the cop for "corruption" or claim that "white people" get away with crimes too. All the while, few actually use such peer pressuring power to tell those criminals who were caught just how destructive and embarrassing their behavior is.

Of course, my "less tolerance" comment was merely a figure of speech.
