  1. Disturbing and sad. But one thing I don’t understand about attempting something like this (in addition to it being completely cowardly) is that it seems like cops are actually pretty decent at catching people, especially when their faces couldn’t be any more clear. If these two get caught, they end up in jail and are totally f*cked, landing firmly on the other side of the new Jim Crow line (http://newjimcrow.com/) forever, just like that. For what, a few bucks in her purse?

  2. I going to take a guess and say their brains were poorly developed when they were adolescents. People with these kind of deficiencies growing up coupled with inheriting bad behavior from others tend to commit these kinds of acts when they sense the opportunity. I’m no psychologist but that’s what I think happened. Kinda like when you see someone viciously punch another person in the face and run off. That is the kind of mentality that we are dealing with. Impulsiveness and lack of judgement.

    Either way, these guys lives are forever screwed and it will be a matter of time before they are caught, tried, convicted and sent to prison. When they get out, no one is going to hire them for employment.
