    JohnnyVoodoo: Totaly agree with you. It is amazing though that you can identify them as, certain segments, them, these people, and they, but your post would have been kept out if you would have used a color or race instead. Reguardless most will find it easy to fiure exactly who you were talking about.

    Bad boys are getting more prone to shooting during robbery, guess LEOs need to start shooting first when they come up on them.....oh yeah, I forgot, then their rights are being violated.

    What you see on those video stills is both an ideology and culture that certain segments of our population are raised within. Getting/wanting something for nothing, a sense of entitlement, the world owes them something so we'll just take it, etc. This scene is so commonplace now that it's almost standard operating procedure for these people. At some point, you have to ask yourself, will they ever "get it" or realize that drugs, gang violence, robbing, stealing, etc. really gets you anywhere? One word, five syllables....unbelievable.
