    If I had been there and saw them I would just have run them over with my car. As I understand it using deadly force in aiding someone in danger is perfectly legal. Then I would have sued their estates for damage to my car, put their drug money to real use.

      I hope these savages steal all you have!! That will teach your dumb ancestors to be sneaky rogues and steal people from their countries!! Savages, rotflmbo, a savage is a man who bombs a church full of children for being a certain color...a savage is a clown that burns a families home, under the cover of a sheet; a savage is an idiot that guns people down in cold blood, out of ignorance....who's your daddy?

    Reporting the truth is not creating the facts nor in any way racists. Playing the race cars is racists in its highest form. A crime is a crime regardless of color or gender. Just because per capita blacks commit more crime than all other races combined is a fact. There is nothing judgmental involved. If I report the sky is gray this morning it is a fact. Not an opinion that I do not like the sky. I will offer an opinion to appease those who like to play the race card. Robbery is wrong and against the law. Beating an 18 year old young girl is wrong and against the law. Killing a man who played in a band by students is against the law. To say otherwise and make comments like " other schools do it too" is an absurd attempt to obscure the truth and attempt to avoid taking responsibility.

    When seconds count police are only minutes away. Your 2nd always comes in first. Hey Men of Tallahassee. How about a holiday service, go patrol the parking lots and escort the women to their cars until the mall closes. Step up now. If you have the spare time and a CCWP go help out the community. You dont even need a gun, it would be advised. It might be a good workout for some of you chubbies. Churches, go out and protect your flock. Get off your lazy butts men in the community. All you chubbie church ladies could help too. Might be good for you, meet new people, and who would rob a crowd of church ladies escorting a new friend to their car?

    Wow. A Man or Woman wouldnt act like that, if they are acting like dumb social animals then they should be labeled such. I like and use the same tense( male and female)when speaking of these social moronic misfits that should be put down where they stand. Arent these malls lit up with cameras? People be careful out there. Keep your head on a swivel. When you come out the malls and stores pretend youre playing a game of hide and seek, keep your hand on your heater in your purse and pop them through the purse dont even pull it out, you can get a new purse. Watch your backdrop, close range it might go out the back. Act like you dropped something so you can squat down and shoot up. Practice this every day. Practice safety, travel together if possible, carry your firearm on your person in the same place every time. Be serious about defending your life. You dont have to be the toughest SOB out there, you just have to be serious.

      Don't we all! What the world has come to is you are not safe without a weapon. Get a CC permit and carry a gun. Especially in a place like Tallahassee Mall parking lot, have your gun in your hand, or positioned in your purse or holster so you can readily get to it. Pay attention who is around you, don't be distracted talking on the phone etc. If anyone approaches you, especially if they look like thugs, out comes the gun! You probably won't have to shoot it - chickens like these prey on females and the elderly, they'll run away screaming when they see a gun. Same thing when you get out of your car at home etc. We must take back our city!

        by Rob on Dec 23, 2011 at 09:10 AM in reply to Frances you pull your gun, you had better pull that trigger! If you dont, you will go up against someone who will and you will lose. And, even with a CWP, if you pull your firearm to "scare" someone is illegal....and you would have learned that if you took that class.

          Don't know who taught that class Rob, but you should get your money back. Just because you pull a gun doesn't mean you can or should shoot. If a show of force with a gun elimnates a threat, you have a legal obligation to de-escalate and NOT shoot. Cops point guns at folks all the time and only shoot a very small percentage of them. It is only illegal to "scare" somebody with a gun if you had no right to pull it in the first place. If you have the right to pull it, and it scares them enough that you don't have to use it (as with the Cops most of the time) thats fine.

    These 2 guys are always on Monroe St. so the local cops should have no trouble ID'ing them....The car is an Impala 4 door, imagine that....

      I bet if the cops drive through the housing projects nearby they would see the car described by the victim and find a lot of thugs living there.

      Greetings to you "phoenix." I would very much like to assist you with this, but that's just not possible or legal. I do have some knowledge of sentence structure and would love to 'help' in another way. When you began the statement 'my mom' should be replaced with 'My Mother was the victim!' I praise you for your choice to carry a firearm, and losers and hoodrats stay away from the folks that carry, for their own future. They sleep better. Your Mother should perhaps consider a CC permit, and loaded at all times. I'm just sayin'...

    I wish she'd had a gun and trained to use it. That's the future folks, the cops can't be everywhere. Even if they arrest them the jails let them out. Only one way to get rid of this problem - fight fire with fire!

    Some of you act as if white kids don't rob too. Let me explain to you that thugs come in every color (white, black, asian, latino, german, and etc.) You should always be aware of your surroundings. It was unfortunate that the lady was robbed. It is even more unfortunate that you bring race into it as if "whites" have never done anything wrong..... By the way, white kids/young adults rob, steal, kill, and even do drugs.

      Proportionally blacks are much much more likely to be thugs. Yes it may be a stereotype, but there is some truth in it, and this you can't deny.

          LMAO!! this comment. I'm sorry...I have a biracial daughter, am not racist/prejudiced in any way, shape or form and this made me laugh out loud. In all seriousness, to the woman that was robbed, I am so sorry that happened to you. I cannot begin to imagine how scary that must have been and these gentlemen are correct. I have been seriously thinking about heading to the firing range to learn how to defend myself properly if necessary.

      One one race is committing 50% of all violent crime and yet only make up 13% of the population...there is a huge problem! FYI...blacks commit more crime that all the other races combined!

        Ok, what he really meant was since more black people are convicted of their crimes, then therefore the number of incarcerated blacks exceeds that of other races; by no means does it say black people commit more crime.... Its ok Anonymous, I helped your ignorant comment! You're welcome

        I guess that's I big change from the way it used to be huh? Thugs used to be a different color huh? They just have become a bit frightened by the society they created. They were animals from the settling of the new world. Remember the bogus Thangsgiving story? What about the good ole massa days? Oh let's not forget the countless unsolved murders and robberies that lasted until the 1970s unchecked in this America created by the selfish hatred of others. This is to the racist commentators. To those angry about the crime rate, protect yourselves not because you see a black person but because you better know that thugs come in all forms. If you don't, I probably will see your story in the news but of course it won't be a unsubstantiated attack against white people but simply a robbery. Go figure.
