    Would sure be nice to see these people (animals) get jobs. Welfare, robbing must pay by the looks of clothing and cell phone. What a waste of skin.

  2. dis is how it werks says:

    Ahhh, he WAS doing his job. Stealing IS his job – but we thought you already knew that.

    He’s just another one of Minneapolis’ stellar citizens. A self-employed individual trying to increase his income, much like Zygi Wilf does but on a smaller scale.

      People who rob taxis do not work, so where does he get his money? Either welfare, stealing or selling drugs, either way I prefer him killed asap.
