Sandra, since when is a violent snatch and grab robbery something that is "benign"? You from Chicago or somewhere else where that is just another common method of greeting your fellow thug?

Just another crime committed by a young black male. Meanwhile, law abiding citizens are supposed to believe its racist to point this out.
