    Getting back to basics...................

    What this lady did was stupid but what her boyfriend and the neighborhood folks did after, was awesome. This is the kinda' stuff that will truly deter crime......the dude coulda' bought a car for a lot less than what this one cost 'im.

    I understand why this happened. I do not condone it - I absolutely affirm everyone's right to a fair trial - but this kind of on-the-spot "justice" has been going on throughout human history. Albuquerque crime has been skyrocketing as of late, and I will not be surprised if I turn on the news one day and hear a report about a known criminal, a rope, and a cottonwood tree in the Rio Grande Bosque.

    I guess that falls into the category of being found guilty by a jury of your peers...and adds a bit of efficiency to the process

    "Sometimes a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do".

    Although I do not technically condone what happened to the carjacker, I can sure see how it could be a "self defense" act by the victim's boyfriend. And knowing how "inefficient" some police departments in major cities are (yes, I'm calling out the Philadelphia PD here), I can certainly see detaining a criminal if one can to possibly hold them for police. Again, with this case, there may be some "withheld facts" that may make this case clearer.

    The theory that a "big bang" from a handgun, along with a perpetrator receiving a gunshot wound, is the best way to end violent personal or property crimes.

    I believe the beat down was appropriate, it is unfortunate that the perp died. He should have only been maimed and imprisoned for life.

    I think in most cases, the cops' hands are tied. Criminals have been endowed with so many rights and privileges that are so far and above anything law abiding citizens are afforded, the cops are just wasting their time, taxpayers' money and risking their own safety by arresting them. Until courthouses are once again built without revolving doors, we don't have much choice.

    It would be nice if our judicial system wasn't criminal friendly, and could expect justice to be handed out fairly - not the case. If the jacker had been arrested, he'd be out on the street before dark, doing what comes naturally for those types of vermin. So, he's now cold and stiff, which is what he deserved. Do I condone ? yepper, especially with people like him that will continue to do their thing until a innocent is killed. Odds are, the creep was probably on parole for the same thing - justice served.

    Wealth is earned by the penny but squandered by the dollar.

    Never criticize a dumb question because you've probably asked your fair share. But more important to remember, it's much easier to correct a dumb question than it is to correct a dumb mistake.


    Other people’s opinions are not a substitute for thought.

    People won't remember what you say and people won't remember what you do. What people will remember is how you made them feel.

    It took an HOUR for medical personnel to show up. Inefficient is a very polite adjective!
    The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest we become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. - Cicero 55 B.C.
