    Yes…the crime here in Huntsville has become more brazen & bolder than ever…Bridge Street, Hudson Belk Apartments and now Madison Square…arm up America!

      Which one of these Malls do you intend to defend, Mike? “Arm up America” sounds like a cheezy ad campaign. I see this as a case of shoplifting. It happens all the time. The description (aka race) of the perps is not relevant. If you look at the Madison County Sheriffs dept website, you will see all races and genders arrested for theft. This matter will be handled by law enforcement. Now… give us some comment about how you don’t trust law enforcement. Make a jingle or something catchy.

        “They” must have given me as your e-assignment as I have noted all your comments are never related to the e-article, but rather the person offering comments. There are no racist comments in any of my comments, rather you choose to inject race as “bait” through out yours.

        What exactly are you babbling about? Not once did Nuclear mention race in his comment.

    Red, heres what the Law says. This does not happen all the time, actually its pretty rare. It takes a special kind of idiot to escalate a petty crime into a felony….

    Section 13A-8-42 – Robbery in the
    second degree.
    (a) A person commits the crime of
    robbery in the second degree if he
    violates Section 13A-8-43 and he is
    aided by another person actually
    (b) Robbery in the second degree is
    a Class B felony.

      Exactly, our society has come to believe that it is i not politically correct to point out that minorities are responsible for far more violent crimes than they should be.

  • TruthLivesHere

    Apparently nothing. Your socialist savior is letting thousands of “minority” children cross the border illegally, thumbing his nose at the law (as he has became so famous for). Obama fiddles while America burns.

    The videos of the event have gone viral. Numerous people have identified at least the girl and 1 of the males. I know who they are, and they are not a minority.. Those who assumed they were, you’re the reason I hate living here and you’re the trash this country doesn’t need. Do us all a favor and get out.
