Shut up guys, trying living on the street for days and see what happen. i guess that guy must be hungry and had no job, that would have been the reason for the cause. i guess most of us here are pretty well off and living a good life with job and don't understand those living a life on the street. so ppls just read the post and get a life instead who is BAD and who is GOOD.

Not to condone any of the racist commentary below - it's done out of ignorance - but how does your comment serve as a reasonable rebuttal., and isn't it, in fact, ignorant? How do you know this guy is hungry or that he lives on the street? Even if it is indeed true, does it rationalize the crime for which he is currently in jail or the alleged attempt to have his victim killed to avoid trial? Stealing, violence against other human beings, and attempted murder are bad, no matter the race or socioeconomic status of the perpetrator.

so, what you're saying is: if you live on the street then you become an ipad-robbing-pinky-tearing-hit-ordering bastard? uuuh that's a no-no sir, you lose ten internetz! if everyone living on the streets had to resort to robbery and hit order upon catch, the usa would be in trouble... not that i care, i live in spain anyways, crayons can melt on you guys for all i care.

Wow! Racial slurs. Really? You do realize that you made yourself seem unintelligent and ignorant. Everyone has a right to believe what they want but to say something like that was uncalled for. Posting something so hurtful on a public forum should not be allowed. You just alienated an entire race of people that may have shared the same view as you on how horrible the incident is by using just one word. It's a shame that things like this still happen today.

not really racism when you look at crime, races and statistics. You are the ignorant one.

Not at all racist -- it's statistics.. Ignorant are those who cry "racism" when they have no real answer to the cold hard fact: African Americans are disproportionately represented in all forms of violent crime with the average rates of representation 2 to 3 times higher than African American representation in the general population (they make up 12% of the general population in the US). Search "Race and crime in the United States" on Wikipedia before touting YOUR ignorant "racism" claims.. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_crime_in_the_United_States)

Enrico, no disrespect but if you are getting your so-called facts from wikipedia (which anyone can post and edit on) and you actually believe them, then you have a much bigger problem than being racist; you suffer from being dumber than you realize. Like I said though... no disrespect.
enrico
enrico - August 18, 2010 at 6:47am
No, the facts are from multiple sources (the main source of the statistic I quoted being: "Compare this with Gabbidon & Greene (2005a:31-33), Walsh (2004:22-23;37-51)". The Wikipedia page is just the easiest page to quote here and get a detailed summary. Also, your statement about Wikipedia is only partially correct. Anyone can post and edit on Wikipedia but their posts and edits will not remain if they are not referenced and considered "notable" by a large panel of Wikipedia Administrators. "... you suffer from being dumber than you realize... no disrespect" -- you're pretty funny. ;)

Here are FBI crime statistics -- total arrests [http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2008/data/table_43.html]. Again, Blacks make up 12% of the general population of the US but account for nearly 30% of all arrests and a whopping 40% of ALL violent crime arrests. Any more excuses?

And the reason for these statistics is what? Is someone trying to say genetics? If so then you Americans must be dumber than I had ever thought. Why don't you dig a little deeper than just simple statistics.

so let me get this right! The above jackass tries to steal an innocent victim's ipad. Then, on being caught by the police, he persues it futher by having another jackass murder the victim. So the victim, on beiing killed, will not be able to testify against the first jackass. And all for an ipad????????????????????????????????????????????? Darwin rules!!!!!!

Is it a dumb Euro-trash thing to read from the bottom upwards? ... Or just not read at all? I was merely using the stats to back-up my initial sarcastic comment in my first post. I'm not even trying to begin the never-ending debates as to why the statistics are what they are. IQ and genetics is only one of the many arguments that have been used to explain them-- I do not subscribe to that argument.

EU - August 18, 2010 at 1:53pm
Yes I understand your first post that if you have to guess better use statistics. But I think the clear tone was sort of racist. Can you really argue with that? Your statistics could be very accurate I am not saying that. (But is there something wrong with the society if one group is clearly more involved in crime? I can't be a genetics and IQ is culture related etc.) I hope US gets the crime stats equal for all ethnic groups.

@EU: Who's saying it has anything to do with genetics? its just statistics, its not a cause-effect study of crime. They're ice hard statistics.
enrico
enrico - August 18, 2010 at 6:37pm
@EU- I agree with you on that point-- it is a reflection of our own culture if such statistics occur for Black Americans in the US but not in other countries for citizens of African descent. It gets into real social science that I won't even pretend to be qualified to speculate on...

There is still hope for this young man's future. When he gets of the penitentiary, hopefully he can apply for Stanford Medical School and then he will be provided an Ipad of his own to further his education. Later as a hand surgeon, he can repair the man's missing digit with a bionic prosthesis. The world will be right again...
