Tallahassee, Florida - July 14, 2011

Tallahassee Police officers have responded to numerous calls throughout the community related to theft of metal from air conditioners, wire from construction sites, and most recently back flow preventers from water lines. Back flow preventers ensure waste water does not re-enter the clean water supply.

Investigator Allen Morris identified Donald Mitchell and Willie Davis as suspects in two of these cases. Probable cause was developed related to two recent back flow preventer thefts and subsequent sales to local scrap yards. Davis and Mitchell were located and arrested yesterday afternoon. Additional related charges are pending for both Mitchell and Davis.

Arrested: Donald Mitchell – 31 year-old black male
Charges: Grand Theft (2 counts) and Criminal Mischief (2 counts)

Arrested Willie Davis – 31 year-old black male
Charges: Grand Theft (2 counts) and Criminal Mischief (2 counts)

    With these arrest continuing how are we going to get our jail numbers right. You know some people think our jail population should reflect the racial composition of our country's population. You know less minorities more white. I guess you would call that reversed afirmative action. You folks are going to have to stop getting arrested. You are messing up the numbers.

      The numbers tell the whole story. Certain groups feel entitled to take(steal) whatever they want while others work hard for what they want. The jail numbers aren't really telling about a racist justice system, but a group that won't quit violating the law.

        White people are the one's who feel they are entitled to EVERYTHING simply because they are white. The rogues of the world belong to the white population...however, many get off because of the color of their skin.

          I guess your just oblivious to the amount of crime committed by the black race compared to their population size. Your post seems to implicate that you think these men did nothing wrong just because you don't like white people.

          Hmmm. Wonder who gets most of the entitlements in this country? Oh, yeah - the racists who think 'cause they're black they get a free ride.

    Now see... we need to start making examples of degenerates like this. These two put thousands of people at risk of serious toxic exposure by removing components of the backflow system... I say charge them with Terrorism and execute them, if you don't they are going to take a state-sponsored vacation in prison to learn how to become better thieves.

    [Florida native, resident] I hate a d**ned thief! There should be a place to send them, where they can steal from other thieves. When they all have a belly full of each, they can wipe out each other! Problem solved! Word!

      Montana sounds like a good spot. Build a big fence and backfill with criminals.
