      Never mind. I reread my comment and realize it wasn’t even close to being funny.

  7. Ingy says:

    Hmmmm, I’m not sure what to think! Is he part Hispanic? I always thought all crimes were committed by blacks and Mexicans. Maybe he was being forced to commit this crime? I hope the rest of the story gets told.

  8. Obv. says:

    Only the violent crimes are committed by them, whites steal mostly, they save the murders and assaults for the blacks and spanics.
