  1. man thats brutal. these people are the absolute scum of the earth. i love the smile on fat boy too, hes proud to be a lowlife coward. and how come the locks didnt work on the doors? at least the surveillance cameras worked, sheesh.

  2. Massive brutal videos on SHB lately.. I kind of wish this was on my floor, I would’ve opened my door and Zimmerman’d those animals.

  3. Hopefully once they are caught (and they will be) some liberal judge doesn’t give them a slap on the wrist but throws a book at these dirtbags.

  4. You’re probably right, but still; this is DISGUSTING and I love all people however these are not people..

  5. You mean you would instigate a fight with a different guy not committing a crime and then shoot him when he started to kick your ass.

  6. If she hAd a gun the police would have pushed past the robbers and grabbed that dangerous woman. That’s NY.

  7. What saddens me the most is that these animals are actually having fun, judging by their face expressions, while committing the crime.
    And as Phil Rosenthal mentioned above – lowlife garbage with no respect to anything or anyone.
    Just sad

  8. The usual suspects. What useful purpose is there in them being alive? I’d rather live with roaches than these savages.

  9. Did “50” make a collar? Gimme details, D? Was fat one charged with “Felony Fatso-tude”?

  10. Don’t know about the charges but heard it was a family member who brought him in. Heard that cops know who the second guy is as well.

  11. It might have been the mother who actually turned one of them in… so no, doesn’t look like they are very proud…
