only even have the story reported by foreign media
I’m shocked, a Black male committing a violent crime...
I wonder if there was a firearm in the house. Sounds as though the wife might have had a chance if there was.
There’s going to be a whole lot of new victims in the coming months. Many states are releasing huge numbers of prisoners right now. It will be a crime wave.
Time to bring back 3 strikes and your out, life sentence for 3rs conviction of crimes of violence.
If only we had invested more in midnight basketball.
How long before reporting crimes like this is considered racist?
The article shows no photos of the victims. Gee, I wonder why?
Yeah...Midnight basketball..Dems have all the answers as to taking care of “blacks”....
I’ve got one... Human Filth Don’t Matter.
I’m so sad those two gentlemen didn’t confront that POS fully armed.
The two victims that are dead are dead because of tight gun laws in that jurisdiction I’m guessing.
Somebody is stealing your car? Pistol out, call police, and chase him off property. If at any point he turns to attack, you shoot to stop his attack till he hits the ground.
Then call your lawyer.
And undoubtedly, BLM/ANTIFA/DNC/ACLU/SPLC will be demanding that this animal be prosecuted for a hate crime real soon!
Like, reeeeeally soon...

And then theres also the all-whites-are-bad angle. That has whipped up a frenzy among people who would otherwise be calm and rational.
I saw a surveillance video the other day of a white guy who went to a store and bought some groceries. He left with a bag in each hand. As he was walking back to his car, a group of black kids jumped him. They didnt take anything. They just beat him up, then walked away.
None of this is being denounced by the left. So we will see more of it.
“The article shows no photos of the victims. Gee, I wonder why?”
Maybe because to the media, White Lives (don’t) Matter.
Stop supporting the PIC...
If the perp is totally factually the perp...Sentence them to death...within 3 months.
They are being emboldened to think they are entitled to take everything and anything - including your life.
Did this occur in Orange County, where Val Demings was sheriff and her husband is County Manager?
Looks like the fools who run the prison system didn't factor in things like 'pandemics'... Can we assume they'd let out a few million more criminals if we have a cyber attack?
Maybe a little planning is in order...
