These days that old joke is just that an old joke. Not very funny either. It's actually Mayor and Mayorette DiBlasio's daughter, in drag. If we are going to become maximalists stupidity-wise might as well shop locally.

Regardless, this "child" with no known advantages in life should be found and turned over to the police with a very public display of seething anger - just as would occur if it were the other way around.

Scattering like a bunch of rats. We've got to go back to the good old days when we would beat The Living Daylights out of them and send the message that if you're up to no good you will pay a heavy price

Well, I am looking at a pretty poor photo #4. How you can be sure he is not an Indian-America or a Native American is a bit beyond me. He seems to be young, slim, dark-completion with good posture. He may have a large nose.

You’re a moron. Tomorrow when you will here is a white git committing a crime, as you surely will, are you also going to talk about how white people commit crimes? You seem to be just as mentally handicapped as trumpinwhitehouse.
