    • Our bad economics are creating criminals faster than they can be shot. These guys are trying to feed their families by taking from others that are doing the same. We have no respect for each other or each other’s property. It is true that if you offered many of these people jobs they would refuse it because thy have become culturalized that it is much easier to just disrespectfully to take from those that have more than they have.

      • Abandon pet you are saying it is a justifiable act for the two waste man to go and distroy people lively hood to feed there family. What if the owners of the home invaded were senior citizens they were likely to be killed by these monsters and judging from your rhetoric it is all good because they have to eat. The police should of cap the both of them. Its easier to dig a hole and put them in than put them in jail for the very said faimly they trying to distroy feed them

        • Who ever you are dont blame the economics all over the world things are bad they have no right going into people home to thief both of them should of been killed if it was the other way around and they killed the owners of the house they were at what would you say then

          • They need to be killed a second time.Today they are not only coming to TEEF,they will kill you too,one less crook to worry about.

      • Hush your stupid ass, if they wanted to work they would of find work…always blaming the government for thier nasty behaviour

      • Lost pet man you always intrigued me. With your nonsense conversation. Did you drop out of third grade. No wonder your name is lost pet you are lost. Next time I see that name I am going to scream. No wonder everyone disagree with your comments. Even your parents would be ashamed of you because the older folks have better wisdom.get lost lost pet and don’t you come back no more.

  1. so i guess the make it right for the police to take ah man life you people full of shit
    that’s some one son ….you vincy people will take anything larrrd..

  2. Bad economics my a…The criminals use any excuse not to work but grab what other people worked hard for. Got back into small scale farming only to be told yesterday that ‘reapers’ were there! One less for public upkeep in jail. And for those who put a political spin as excuse for crime, just shut up and check out the background of these criminals.

  3. Good job That’s how we have to get them. .Dont want to work but quick to take what you work hard for. I am so happy more to go this way.

  4. All the people who repersent the dead one and the other one maybe they are related somewhat that’s why they are defending them because they were going to get a cut out of what they stole
