    This white person is a thug, look at him, accept that thugs come in all shapes, sizes, colors, etc. Who am I kidding, the majority who post on this site don't see white's as thugs, they see them as misunderstood, out for the greater good, in bad situations, etc. Which is why so many get away with crime.

    this man is a monster. This girl was attacked from behind and faught for her life. (faught for her life). I am impressed with her bravery and how smart she was to fight this monster. that is what this is all about, an innocent girl being assaulted, this man was not after her wallet, he was after her. If anybody knows anything or can remember anything about what happened please call the police. to many innocent girls have become victims, even when they do everything they can to protect themselves.

    I was shopping at the store when she came in. I was impressed with TPD's response time, it couldn't of been much more then a minute or two. J, I agree with getting a concealed weapon permit, however I don't know how useful a gun would have been in this situation. Apparently he attacked her from behind and she didn't see him before. I've got a CCW permit and I know that most of the classes to get one don't teach you anything, everyone that gets one should have to take a more advanced firearms defense course. But in cases like this anysort of self defense class would be extremely helpful. Some tips: Don't park in the back or far away from the store. Park in the open, so there are not any bushes or tree's or dark area's for someone to hide in. Be aware of whats going on around you. Always be ready, have a plan of what you will do if your attacked. Have a weapon, in your hand if legal. Pepper spray, stun gun, hardy steel pen... I like pepper spray as a non lethal, they won't be running away very efficiently if they cant see, plus makes it easy for the K9 to track.

      I agree that the training is not what it should be to get a Carry Permit. There are other defence classes available for additional instruction. Come up behind me criminals, rob me, and I'll give you what you want but I'm going to get it my money back once you get shot running away. K9 will have no problem finding them then.

    I'm often one of the first few guys to holler for killing the thug. Color doesn't enter into it. This guy's a dirtbag thug, just like any other thug. There was a time when scum like this was hung from the closest tree. I agree with the sentiment, though. Sadly, if there's a picture of a black guy, you get 3000 more posts that say "kill the thug, kill the thug."

        ...ok, and you are upset about that because why?
  • by Anonymous on Mar 30, 2011 at 09:55 AM
    For all the people mad because no one has labeled this white boy as a thug....Maybe the reason nobody is labeling him as a thug is that black people, thug or not thug, like to label each other as thugs because it's "cool." This is why when you hear of black people doing crimes they get labeled as thugs because it's a black slang name for each other. Dont get me wrong and dont call me a racist because I think this white boy is as thuggish as a black guy robbing some store. A thug is a criminal. Tell the black folks that...and tell them that calling each other thug isn't cool.

        What is the slang term for a white person that steals? The black race started the word thug for a black person, not other races. And while your at it stop seeing color!!!!

    These robberies are just examples of why people need to get concealed weapon permits to defend themselves since the police don't seem to have a handle on the violent crime in our community. Sad to say.

      The CWP classes at the Fair Grounds during the Gun show are going to be crowed this year just like last year.

    Hold up...where are those typical comments we normally see??? I'm sure this guy is a THUG. My fault he's not black so we're not going to label him that. He's probably just having a rough time adjusting to this Tally life.

      You are angry because you think the black crooks are labeled thugs and the white crooks are not? Keep feeding your flame and you keep feeding your anger you are only cheeting your self. The time your spend focusing on this and building your flame of anger, you could be focusing on something else. For an exmple, you could spend the time building a business. If you invest as much of your time and focus on your new business as you do a crook being called a thug you will a millonair in 5 years. What you spend your time thing about and focusing on matters. Stop wating it on this.

    This guy's age and race are the same as two of the robberies on Tennessee Street over this past weekend. One of those being at the CVS. Don't think I'll be visiting either of these locations at night any time soon.
