So now can we deport them?
Laura Calacci February 21, 2013 at 08:33 PM
Hi El. Good question. But before we even get there, can we ask Karen to investigate what their immigration status is. Maybe she can ask the police dept. Usually, if the subject is brought up, the person asking the question (Me) is called a racist.

Maybe Profiler is a more accurate description since it seems you are assuming residency status based on a Hispanic surname?
Laura Calacci February 21, 2013 at 09:36 PM
Ms. Ramon, Call it whatever you like. If its profiling, so be it. I'd bet my last dollar that these three characters are not only illegal immigrants, but that they also have previous criminal records.

It's an old saw that 5% of the criminals are responsible for 95% of the crimes. These three must have been going for a local record before they were apprehended. Give 'em their due process, then throw their sorry backsides in the hoosegow.

Laura (Ramon) One has no fixed address and one is from Herndon. Duh!
Laura Ramon February 22, 2013 at 03:37 PM
El- and they worked with the school resource officer--- illegal thieving HS student? All I'm saying is you don't know and it's wrong to assume-- like assuming that everyone in a head scarf is a terrorist. Duh! Skonka

Two had fraudulent ID's. What might that indicate?
El February 22, 2013 at 04:36 PM
School resource officer? At 18, 19 and 22 they are still in high school? They obviously didn't work with the school resource officer. I think you misread that.
Kate Peterson February 22, 2013 at 04:42 PM
I think Ms. Ramon got it right. "Police said they conducted a lengthy and complex investigation involving school resource officers, the neighborhood patrol unit, station detectives and patrol officers." I also think the presumption of illegal alien status is just that- presumptuous.
El February 22, 2013 at 05:14 PM
Her comment sounded like the perps worked with the resource officer. And we will see who is right if we hear the rest of the story. IF.
El February 22, 2013 at 06:04 PM
Laura (Ramon) Skonka right back atcha, Skonka, by the way, means "bitch for those of you who do not know what she called me.

Since more than 95 percent of all Hispanics currently inside the United States are here illegally (I'm including kids born here to invaders), I'll always assume someone with a Hispanic surname is an illegal alien, when coupled with other telling factors. If the shoe fits wear it. Enough of this silly game wherein most are illegal but we are supposed to presume they're not until they simply confess or something. Fifteen percent of the U.S. population is comprised of opportunistic invaders. No one would ever put up with this outside the U.S. But the rich want to undercut the bargaining power of their working class countrymen. They're opening the border to lower the cost of everything they buy. So I blame rich white people. The invasion is just a symptom of their elitist policies.

Mahone. Hmmmm, that doesn't sound native american to me. Where did you and your "opportunistic invader" family come from? Did you just sprout out of the ground or something?
Florence Frey February 28, 2013 at 10:13 PM
I would like to find out if these guys stole the radio out of my car not too long ago. I filed a police report and plan to follow up.
Mike M February 28, 2013 at 10:21 PM
Ay! Dios Mio!
Mike M February 28, 2013 at 10:22 PM
Sure Laura! But you're not supposed to say that! It's not . . . . correct! I mean politically.
Mike M February 28, 2013 at 10:25 PM
EI, what else can she say ? What else does she have?
Mike M February 28, 2013 at 10:26 PM
Joe, Odds are he and/or his ancestors were legal. Mine were. Does the law not matter to you? Is illegal activity just as valid as illegal activity?
