Default A Great Mind of Our Time...

I didn't see this story mentioned anywhere on the forums and I'm pretty sure this is the appropriate place to post it.

I think his momma forgot to teach him the finer points of robbing a gun store. Or maybe he was trying to do "suicide by gun dealer".

Let us hope that he did not add to the gene pool.

That is an amazing level of stupid right there.

What on earth would go through someone's head to make that seem like a good idea?

Now, now, I don't know about this, guys.

Somebody in the U.S. owned slaves about 200 years

ago. Sooo, since this poor victim also happens to be black, in

America, isn't he just automatically entitled to

whatever he wants, now?

I am certain that my white ancestors were slave to the King of England, does that make me entitled to anything?

A knife at a gun fight is a step up from skittles, I guess.

Ya dang skippy he was!

In fact, he should have busted out the glass panel, and

loaded the gun for the guy. Isn't it OBVIOUS?

NOW TDS, the ONLY mistreated ancestors

which count are the black slaves of the

last century in the USA. AFRICA still trades slaves,

other countries, too, and ancestors worldwide have

been thru pogroms, slavery, holocausts, and any number

of fantastic disasters, but we can't

EVER bring that to light. It just wouldn't be fair to

all of B.O.'s children.

I'm not going to lie I figured this guy was going to be black, I don't see why in the hell people can be this damn stupid. Honestly they should have just shot the bastard to save people the hassle. I'm just saying that if this guy is this stupid that as soon as he gets out of jail even if he's 70 something he'll probably just try to rob someone else or hell even kill someone.
