    Massive brutal videos on SHB lately.. I kind of wish this was on my floor, I would’ve opened my door and Zimmerman’d those animals.

    • Phil Rosenthal

      yea but then you’d be labelled a violent racist, womp womp

      • Lepke Buchalter

        You’re probably right, but still; this is DISGUSTING and I love all people however these are not people..

    • Guy

      You mean you would instigate a fight with a different guy not committing a crime and then shoot him when he started to kick your ass.

    • sadeyes

      Unimpressed with your tough guy impersonation. Do Jimmy Cagney instead.

  • Local Broker

    Good thing she wasnt armed with a weapon because someone could have been hurt.

    • whatAtown

      If she hAd a gun the police would have pushed past the robbers and grabbed that dangerous woman. That’s NY.

    Hopefully once they are caught (and they will be) some liberal judge doesn’t give them a slap on the wrist but throws a book at these dirtbags.

    This is a hate crime and it better be treated as such.

    • Guest

      How is this a hate crime?

  • Alex

    What saddens me the most is that these animals are actually having fun, judging by their face expressions, while committing the crime.
    And as Phil Rosenthal mentioned above – lowlife garbage with no respect to anything or anyone.
    Just sad

  • Guest 123

    The usual suspects. What useful purpose is there in them being alive? I’d rather live with roaches than these savages.

    Someone should play this video at the meeting between Sharpton and de Blasio.

    • Bob

      Sharpton’s rap sheet stretches longer than G Unit’s. Anyone catch the pun?

  • D

    So the fat one got brought in this morning….

    • Horatio Caine, CSI Miami

      Did “50” make a collar? Gimme details, D? Was fat one charged with “Felony Fatso-tude”?

      • D

        Don’t know about the charges but heard it was a family member who brought him in. Heard that cops know who the second guy is as well.

  • Bikerchick

    Freaking lowlife animals. I hope their mother’s are proud of them.

    • D

      It might have been the mother who actually turned one of them in… so no, doesn’t look like they are very proud…
