BPD Investigates Armed Robbery

Three people told Burlington Police they were robbed at gunpoint shortly after midnight this(Weds) morning near the corner of 8th and Elm.

No one was hurt and the victims say the robbers were all black males. They reportedly took off with some credit cards and small amounts of cash from the pockets of the people they stopped.

      Racist much?

      • Crosey84

        Not racism, just being real. Look who’s doing all the shootings, robberies, home invasions, etc.

        • Informed bystander

          Nationwide it is well documented that the demographic that is largely responsible for rape and molestation and and in “drugs” and domestic homicide/siucide and bank robberies at a rate of 93% more than ANY other race is primarily white males between the ages of 18 and 54. Just saying. It has been this way for the last 120 years. Now of course there are several brutal crimes associated with the ( as u call it) darker skinned people lol those would include home invasion, murders in association with drug transaction, petty crimes and selling and transporting of contraband and narcotics. Just a bit of a lesson to the jumpy stereotypers!! Check for yourself.

        Crosey84 is definitely exhibiting a stereotypical view.

        Stereotyping is much different than racism.

          Ignorance either way

            That’s true. I judge a criminal on the content of his character rather the color of his skin.

            • hang_em

              Amen! ! Im tired of all these people thinking that negroes are the only ones who commit crimes. There are plenty of worthless Mexicans and other dark skinned people out there that commit violent crimes including rape and child molestation.
