USING CRIME TO PREVENT CRIME


USING CRIME TO PREVENT CRIME

The details in the new attack, which were still emerging last night, appeared to be in some ways more complicated. Mr. Minucci, the accused, said that the three black men might have been looking at his jewelry earlier last week, and that he was responding to that when he came across them around 3 a.m. yesterday. For their part, two of the black men, according to police, admitted under questioning that they had been in the area with hopes of stealing a car.

But one law enforcement official said that at the time of the attack, the black men had done nothing more than be in Howard Beach around 3 a.m. And another official said that Mr. Minucci told investigators that after the beating, his companion said, “This is what you get if you want to rob white boys,” finishing the sentence with a racial epithet.

Couldn’t they have just said they got lost looking for a puppy?

    This is my prediction for the story that’s going to shape the mayoral race. Everyone is talking about it.

    Nope. No one comes off looking good in this story. It’ll go away by the time we’re back.

    I’ll put money on this story lasting. Will you?

    I wouldn’t put money on this story lasting, no.

    So its turning out that the white guys assaulted and robbed a black guy.
    Imagine the reaction if the black guys beat up the white guys and then used the excuse they did it because they thought the white guys were up to no good. Except there is virtually no evidence the white guys were up to no good except the whiteness of their skin.
    hahahaha I don’t think there would be many people defending the black guys with that excuse.
