In Vickery Meadows, a Kidnapping, AK-47s, and a Pair of Stolen Air Jordans

Categories: Crime

At 11:30 Saturday night, Mark Yeh, 19, was walking behind the Auto Zone on Park Lane, about a block from his home, when a green Ford Excursion stopped beside him. Yeh was grabbed and forced into the SUV by a handful of Hispanic men -- maybe four, maybe five -- who were armed with 9 mm pistols and AK-47s. They bound Yeh's hands and feet, covered his head with a black hood, and punched him several time in the face.

"Where is the money? Do you want me to kill you?" one asked, according to a police report detailing the incident.

They took the $200 Yeh was carrying and his pair of Air Jordans, then stopped at the intersection of Abrams and Walnut Hill alongside a black Ford Explorer.

"We should take him to the farm and off him," one of the men suggested. Instead, they cut the zip ties from Yeh's hands and feet and drove away.

I was thinking all that firepower and stealing shoes and 200.00 is the best they can do ?

That is a serious time .If they get caught .

Is there a point to this story?

 @Montemalone Yes - to get the usual commenters to insult hispanics and talk about how if Yeh had a gun he would have been able to defend himself and his shoes.  Very good chance of "when seconds count the police are minutes away"   Then the other usual commenters will counter with accusations of racism and gun-nuttery, leading to eventual confusion of correlation and causation, at least one "nice strawman" comment, and of course some comparison to Nazis.  However, I'd say this particular story is a little too inconclusive, and doesn't have enough spin to get to 100 comments.  I'd guess 30 max.

@Montemalone I think this falls under "Just lettin' ya know".

My comment is based on my own amused mental image of that every body came prepared to shoot rather than what everybody would be shooting..

Although I admit  I was smiling as I was thinking about the absolute cluster fuck when it came to the ballet of moves it took by using bulky rifle as a tool to separate someone from both their wallet ant their shoes..And how much of a blow to the  ego it would be if that firearm was blessed with awareness.

 @observist  @Montemalone I think it more shows how there is apparently very little risk involved in this type of criminal activity.

 

do this half a dozen times a day and it looks like a fairly rewarding business venture ... other than the fact that polite society frowns on this type of endeavor.

 @observist  @Montemalone You forgot about the part where someone calls someone else a libtard.  

 

You also forgot about the part where someone (.katz) makes an off-the-wall link to her own cats.

 

You are no good at this game.  I guess your excuse will be that it's Monday morning and you had a fun weekend?

 @oakclifftownie I was thinking more of the diner scene in "Pulp Fiction"

 

For a street gun, a semiautomatic rifle is probably easier and cheaper to come by that a decent handgun. Besides the rifle probably makes the perps think that they are bad a$$es ...

 

Also by using a rifle rather than a handgun, the perps won't get popped on a concealed weapon charge ...

"I got a serious question for you: What the fuck are you doing? This is not shit for you to be messin' with. Are you ready to hear something? I want you to see if this sounds familiar: any time you try a decent crime, you got fifty ways you're gonna fuck up. If you think of twenty-five of them, then you're a genius... and you ain't no genius. You remember who told me that? [Ned nods, "yes"] -- Teddy Lewis (the arsonist) in "Body Heat"

 @ThePosterFormerlyKnownasPaul  @Montemalone I never carry out any of my criminal plans because I can think of too many ways to get caught.  I also tend to assume that CSI, Dexter, Jimmy McNulty and Sherlock Holmes will all dedicate their lives to tracking me down.  In reality, I could probably just start robbing people on the street and drive off in my generic 4-door sedan with current plates registered in my name and not get caught.

 @mcdallas  @Montemalone Internet commenters can never admit mistakes or weaknesses.  My game is perfect.  Nazis played like you're playing.
