The other individual is not suspected to be dangerous and efforts to locate him are ongoing, Despain said.

    Crime is often times the result of poor economic conditions caused by surplus labor, namely illegal immigration. How come you right-wingers’ boy Bush Jr. and the R-controlled congress didn’t take care of it? Now it’s too late I think…

      Crime is often the result of Progressive Liberals who teach “whats mine is mine and whats yours is mine” approach to life. These folks have no regard to other peoples “stuff” and will stop at nothing to take your stuff from you.

      Also, on a side note. There is a huge difference between Progressives and Conservatives, but there is no longer any distinction between Democrats and Republicans anymore. There are essentially the same kind of people.

    “there is no longer any distinction between Democrats and Republicans anymore. There are essentially the same kind of people.”

    Yup, they are both just servants to the wallstreet/banking establishment.
