    How did they get a machete? Only hard working gardeners should be able to own machetes, time for stricter machete laws.

    It really does not help saying they are of a brown or dark complexion.

      Neither would it help if they showed their ID. Police still would not figure out how to catch and prosecute them…..

      Racist, of course it helps. It eliminates many of the white British, Canadian, and Australian bankers running amok with machetes, robbing everything in sight.

        By the way, for those who don’t get it, that was a joke. Tut Alors is correct….
