If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

My daughter and I were in the Kohl's just across the parking lot from here on Saturday. We drove by it Sunday morning on the way out of town. This is scary, but I am glad that no patrons were killed.
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

Man! I don't know how, but the OP was marked "liked" by me somehow. This is a tragedy. And just because a guy owns a Harley, does NOT make him a thug or "biker"! Some guys (like me) just love a Harley! I could never afford one though...

Opportunity strikes. There's an upside: 190 arrested on rock solid felonies. And I'd bet they've confiscated the bikes as items used in the commission of a felony. That'll take the steam out of some of the gangs.

Isn't Texas an Open Carry state? What could go wrong?

Tom, how many Outlaw motorcycle gangs or any gangs for that matter 'open carry'? I bet less than 1%

Where's all the outcry about the "white on white" crime that is so prevalent? What causes it- poverty? Single parent households? Or is it just something inherent to the race itself?

Quote:
In 2013, whites led all other groups in aggravated assault, larceny-theft, arson, weapons-carrying, and vandalism. When it comes to sexual assault, whites take the forcible rape cake. They are also more likely to kill children, the elderly, family members, their significant others, and even themselves! They commit more sex-related crimes, gang related crimes, and are more likely to kill at their places of employment. In 2013, an estimated 10,076 people died in the U.S. due to drunk driving crashes. Driving while drunk is almost exclusively a white crime because everyone knows black people prefer to drink on their porches or inside their homes.

So why is white on white crime so prevalent, one may ask? Is it the music they listen to? Is it the white divorce rate, resulting in more white children coming from broken homes? Perhaps it's the TV shows they watch or the violent sports they play. More than likely, it is a combination of all of those things, with the exact root cause unclear. What is clear, though, is that not enough people are talking about the crime plaguing the white community. We need to spread the word, holding protests and demonstrations that call attention to this growing matter. Because, after all -- white lives matter, too.

Probably very few can legally carry anyway. Which of course does not stop them from doing so. Many will have felony and drug convictions and usually this would prevent even owning a firearm much less carrying it in any way. Which brings us back to the faulty concept of passing more laws making it difficult for a law abiding individual to legally carry.. Because law abiding citizens obey the law, whereas bad guys do not obey the law...that is why they are bad guys. Smile
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

This will definitely be in the running for stupidest post of the year and not surprising on who posted it.

You do realize, don't you Bob, that the article you linked studiously avoids mentioning 'per capita' results, right? It's hardly surprising that when the White population outnumbers the Black population approximately 72% to 12%, that more crimes are committed in total by the white population.

Indeed!

Murder: Blacks, at 13% of the population, commit 49.4% of murders. The FBI's latest compiled yearly numbers states that whites committed 4,101 murders compared to blacks committing 4,203 murders.

Rape: Blacks, 13% of the population, committed 32.5% of rapes.

Robbery: Blacks, 13% of the population, committed 54.9% of robberies.

Aggravated Assault: Blacks, 13% of the population, committed 34.1% of aggravated assault.

FBI - Crime in America 2012

Now, a little extrapolation...

Half of the 13% are females so we are down to 6.5%

Roughly 2/3 of the 6.5% are either young children, say under 10 or 11 and over 40.

So, what you have are a subset of the black male population of about 2.5% of the total population of the United States that are responsible for the overwhelming majority of crimes in the United States.

How are you going to spin that, Bob?

And, who the hell is Kerry Coddett?

Although we're conditioned to think of biker gangs as white; some photos of Bandidos appear to show a number of Latino fellows in their ranks. So the topic is not really about race, quite true. Crime statistics (based on arrests) alone don't answer the complexity of WHY people commit crimes, no matter their color. However, Michelle Alexander in her book, The New Jim Crow, did do a lot of research in the disparity of treatment of blacks and whites at the hands of authorities in racial profiling, arrests and overall incarceration. As an ACLU lawyer, she was skeptical at first of the claims that Black people were being subject to a "new Jim Crow", but her research told her otherwise. I think we all need to be careful when it comes to throwing out statistics to 'prove' a belief, when it requires digging deeper. (I've committed this sin a few times myself, also known as "political truth"). Lynn

Well, they ARE called the Bandidos! LOL Bob would probably call them a bunch of white hispanics.

The guy who works in the pet department, helping people scoop fish out of the tank, rides a Harley. And he is neither a thug or a biker.
