    The cops should put a bullet in both their heads when they catch them and save the taxpayers money. These thugs I’m sure have done this before and will just continue to do it. God forbid they should work for their money. And they want to blame the white man for all their trials and tribulations. Well guess what, we aren’t buying that one anymore. Every nationality was discriminated against at one time or another. There’s no excuse from any race to go out robbng, stealing and shooting.

    Make up your mind KYW! Is it a Sam’s Club or a former Sam’s Club?
