this is why you profile people that don't look like they belong in your neighborhood. while Strickland st is not a good looking area, the neighbors could have watched out for their neighbor. they would have known they didn't belong there.

HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) -
A robbery in Hinesville is now under investigation after two men broke into a home and got away with a number of items.

It happened around 10 p.m. Sunday at a home on Strickland Street.

Benjamin Young, 13, who lives at the home with his mother, Yolanda Young, says his mother was visiting friends while he was at a next door neighbor's house Sunday night.

Benjamin says he left to go back to his house around 9:20 p.m. and just prior to his return, he observed 2 black males standing on his front porch. Young then ran to alert the neighbors with whom he had been staying with, but when he went back outside the two suspects were gone.

Benjamin then continued on to his residence but when he entered his home, he observed the same two suspects running out the back door. Benjamin says he then chased them to his back fence.

The suspects stole a variety of different things including an Xbox 360 and games, name brand shoes and clothing including female undergarments, 2 old smart phones and some assorted cd's.

Benjamin's mother arrived on scene during the investigation and was advised of the incident.

Benjamin and his mother stated that the back door was locked when they left their residence earlier.

Police responded to the robbery and used K-9's to search a wide area to try and locate the two suspects but neither were caught.

If you know anything about the robbery, you are asked to call Hinesville police

Gacpl, if you notice, I don't respond to your post or blogs..why? because you like to stir things up and now your trying to compare a totally different case to the murder of a child. I responded today (my last time...

gacpl commented on Monday, Jul 22, 2013 at 11:39 AM

the jury said it wasn't murder. deal with it. but this is why you have to look out for your neighborhood, the fact is police can do very little to prevent it, they investigate it after the fact. people who have had their houses broke into never feel safe again. its a very bad feeling. i know it first hand when my parents house was broken into when i was a kid.

sebekm commented on Monday, Jul 22, 2013 at 11:47 AM

I don't think gacpl "stirs things up" any more than any of the rest of us do. It's all a matter of perspective. Opinions are opinions - and we are all here to comment and share our opinions.

Sebekm,

Yes he does. You have gacpl on one page and everybody else is on a different page.

golfnut31316 commented on Monday, Jul 22, 2013 at 12:40 PM

I am my own neighborhood watch and I profile anyone who doesn't belong there and will continue to do so. I do live in the country, so that makes it all that much easier.
More people need to question who is around and what they are doing. Advice for teens, when someone in a neighborhood asks who you are and what you are doing, answer honestly, not "None of your business", I speak about that personally. I saw some teen age boys in a place I knew they shouldn't be, confronted them and got nothing but smart @ss answers from them, That all stopped when the deputies showed up. They were charged with trespassing in a plea deal, dropping theft and burglary. The property owner was very thankful I got involved and watched out for them.

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, Jul 22, 2013 at 13:08 PM

You are not profiling them because they were black, but because of suspicious activity.

gacpl commented on Monday, Jul 22, 2013 at 15:17 PM

no more then you do sport. but I at least see thing without a race filter over my eyes.

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, Jul 22, 2013 at 17:51 PM

Thats about all you do see, and that is Race GACPL.

I am on the same page with gacpl a lot of the time - just as I am on the same page with a lot of y'all a lot of the time as well. It may not look that way, but that's how I see it.

gacpl commented on Monday, Jul 22, 2013 at 19:33 PM

no i don't see it with race. if it was two white guys or two black guys, it would have easily been self defense. but because a non black killed a black, all the blacks that let the sharptons of the world tell them what to think get all up in arms, oh they are picking on black people again. grow up, open your eyes. look up the actual trial and watch it for yourself. then and only then will you see the truth.

Funkentelecky commented on Monday, Jul 22, 2013 at 22:32 PM

gacpl,

I agree with you on this one, because it's all about the evidence, reasonable doubt and self defense period.

This case wouldn't have went to trial if it were white on white, black on black and even black on white/hispanic.

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, Jul 22, 2013 at 23:15 PM

Well we wont know now will we becsuse it is not the case at point. what is relevant is that George Zimmerman shot and killed an unarmed black teenager whom he was profiling. And yes. I say again he acquitted because the state did not prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt with 6 jurors. So constititionally he is a free man. But again, is he really free? Let him come out of hiding and walk the streets again and engage with the citizens of Sanford Florida.

gacpl commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 08:04 AM

he profiled him due to how he was acting, not race, george didn't even mention race in the 911 call, the operator did

SportsFan31313 commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 09:59 AM

He was profiled based on race. End of discussion!!!

gacpl commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 11:45 AM

discussion ended with the jury saying you are wrong.

sebekm commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 11:46 AM

Not exactly - the FBI said he was NOT profiled based on race.

"After interviewing nearly three dozen people in the George Zimmerman murder case, the FBI found no evidence that racial bias was a motivating factor in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, records released Thursday show.

Even the lead detective in the case, Sanford Det. Chris Serino, told agents that he thought Zimmerman profiled Trayvon because of his attire and the circumstances — but not his race.

Serino saw Zimmerman as “having little hero complex, but not as a racist.”

The Duval County State Attorney released another collection of evidence in the Zimmerman murder case Thursday, including reports from FBI agents who investigated whether any racial bias was involved in Trayvon’s Feb. 26 killing. [...]

Federal agents interviewed Zimmerman’s neighbors and co-workers, but none said Zimmerman had expressed racial animus at any time prior to the Feb. 26 shooting of Martin, a black teen, in a confrontation at a Sanford housing complex. As Sanford police investigated the circumstances of Martin’s death, the FBI opened a parallel probe to determine if Martin’s civil rights had been violated.

Several co-workers said they had never seen Zimmerman display any prejudice or racial bias."

See: http://www.ijreview.com/2013/07/65574...

But Zimmerman is apparently on the loose again. He reportedly assisted in the rescue of a family from an automobile accident less than a mile from the spot where he shot Trayvon Martin. (They always return to the scenen of the crime?)

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/...

The crash is still under investigation, but there has been no mention of whether Zimmerman's continued profiling activities led to the rescue.

"Not exactly - the FBI said he was NOT profiled based on race."

FBI does not make the decision to charge. The United States Attorney does.

up2sumptin commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 12:23 PM

I have friends who are 911 operators and they tell me they get calls regarding "suspicious" activity. When questioned, the person is of another race, just walking down the street. These calls come from both white and black callers. We all seem to be weary of those who are different from ourselves.

SportsFan31313 commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 12:26 PM

"Not exactly - the FBI said he was NOT profiled based on race."

Well we will see once the Department Of Justice makes the "FINAL" decision to determine whether or not Trayvon Martin civil rights were violated.

SportsFan31313 commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 13:12 PM

"Not exactly - the FBI said he was NOT profiled based on race."

The DOJ will make that final determination as to whether or not he was. Not the FBI...

SportsFan31313 commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 13:27 PM

Everyone,

Please pardon the redundancy. My computer system is on the blink and I am having issues posting comments at this time. I will return later.

up2sumptin commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 13:28 PM

But there has to be evidence. Enough evidence to win a case. I don't think it is there.

golfnut31316 commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 14:56 PM

Has anyone noticed how far in the news this on going case is buried?

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/...

sebekm commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 14:59 PM

It is NOT there. That's why the criminal case was lost in Florida. And now the ACLU has officially declared an "end" to the criminal case against Zimmerman - or at least any support from THEM for continued federal criminal prosecution of Zimmerman. Here's their statement:

"“We are writing to clearly state the ACLU’s position on whether or not the Department of Justice (DOJ) should consider bringing federal civil rights or hate crimes charges as a result of the state court acquittal in the George Zimmerman case,” Laura Murphy, director of the ACLU’s Washington office, wrote.

“The ACLU believes the Double Jeopardy Clause of the Constitution protects someone from being prosecuted in another court for charges arising from the same transaction. A jury found Zimmerman not guilty, and that should be the end of the criminal case," she wrote."

See: http://www.politico.com/story/2013/07...

There was insufficient evidence to prosecute the criminal case in Florida, and there is insufficient evidence to sustain a conviction in federal court. Bad evidence doesn't get better with age. The facts DO NOT CHANGE. You can go jury-shopping, but the government has to believe there is enough there to prosecute to begin with, otherwise the case never gets to jury selection.

In a criminal justice forum, this case is a LOSER. It was from the beginning. Nothing has changed. The fact that you have so many prominent legal scholars and political leaders on both sides of the aisle saying so confirms it. The final death stroke is the way the President is handling the discussion.

It is over - in criminal court that is. If the vigilantes want their pounds of flesh, they'll have to get it via civil suit for wrongful death. Or they can always find Zimmerman and lynch him, I suppose.

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 16:01 PM

How bout that ACLU Statement. And they are as uber-liberal as they come. They have gone to court for NAZI'S rights before.

Civil Court may provide some channeling of anger towards the verdict.

SportsFan31313 commented on Tuesday, Jul 23, 2013 at 17:46 PM

It's enough evidence to charge Zimmerman Federally. We are no longer talking state laws. We are now in a bigger and more broad approach. Let me say this: if the Federal Hivernment want you, they will get you. Maybe they will charge Zimmerman on Civil Rights violation or naybe they wont. We will have to just wait and see. These community activist, political figures, clergymsn, and of course supporters of the Trayvon Martin family are not going to ket this die out until they see justice for Trayvon Martin. I'm telling you. Watch CNN, USA Today. and etc. thus not going to go away.

Sporty: It ain't gonna happen.

And as for the ACLU - their "uber-liberal" stand is generally consistent with Democratic party core principles. They generally represent traditional Democratic party core constituencies. I RARELY see them taking up a case involving the conservative/GOP "downtrodden." The ACLU is and has been in the pocket of the Democratic party for as long as I can remember. For them to bail on federal criminal prosecution of Zimmerman tells me that they know that case has NO CHANCE.

Juror says Zimmerman 'got away with murder'

http://usat.ly/1c6Lixk

sebekm commented on Thursday, Jul 25, 2013 at 20:03 PM

I saw that. And in that case, SHE SHOULD HAVE STUCK TO HER GUNS AND HUNG THE JURY!! Juries have ignored instructions (and evidence) before. That's why the prosecution and defense become skilled in "jury shopping."

But also note that she said that the evidence wasn't there under the law. This will be no different under the federal statute. I know you don't want to hear it, but for a federal hate crime, the prosecution has to PROVE that Zimmerman killed Martin BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK. Not in self-defense. Not for any other reason.

They couldn't prove this in the Florida case because the evidence was just not there. Bad evidence doesn't get better with age, and they just can't magic up some where there is none.

There will be a lot of lip-service (i.e., "discussion) paid to the societal significance of this case, but just about every legal expert I've read - and the ACLU as well - admits further criminal prosecution of Zimmerman at any level is futile. The ACLU (who has lawyers on their staff) says to forget it based upon former jeopardy. I don't know about that - but in any case the best chance those in the public who want Zimmerman to stand trial again is in a civil wrongful death trial.

SportsFan31313 commented on Friday, Jul 26, 2013 at 00:43 AM

You maybe right Sebe, but I'm definitely hoping that they can find sonething to lock him up. He by with killing thus unarmed teenager. But I will also tell you that he wont get away. If the DOJ does not get him, then yoh will more than likely see vigilante justice against him. He is a marked nan Sebe. A fugitive from himself all the days of his life.

Funkentelecky commented on Friday, Jul 26, 2013 at 11:27 AM

Yes, SF3 a marked man because of people like you who let emotions rule there judgement instead of facts and the rule of law.

SportsFan31313 commented on Friday, Jul 26, 2013 at 13:23 PM

Marked Man Because Of His Crime. It has nothing to do with me.
