    Up in NY we make the crooks an offer they can't refuse,
    choice of a 9mm or .357 hollow point.

    Gee can't they find a Best Buy to rob in New York.

    These men made the decision to take property that was not theirs to take.

    Nobody told anyone to smoke tobacco products, that is your decision if you make it.

    Yes ,I also think NY should also bill North Carolina for all the illness and death that state's tobacco crop has caused their citizen's.

    I have a serious question. Why should North Carolina house and feed the guys on our taxes? Why don't we bill New York for what their people do down here? It's a common practice in the EU for home countries to be responsible financially for their citizens in another.

    Oldschool: Being from NY, they're most likely Puerto Ricans. ICE won't be of any help there.

    I feel sorry for them. They were probably spanked as a child. They should let them go because we all should feel sorry for them.

    Good job Durham Police. Just don't let Orlando Hudson be the judge and they may actually do some time.
