Xbox 'thief' is Xbusted

An Xbox marked the spot where a Bronx man stockpiled a treasure trove of pilfered electronics, police said.

Jeremiah Gilliam, 22, was caught after playing a stolen game console online -- allowing cops in Pelham, where it was stolen, to trace the IP address to his grandmother's address, cops said.

There, detectives found dozens of video games, laptops, and GPS devices believed to have been stolen from as many as 200 car break-ins and several home burglaries in Westchester County.

Don't you just love the media? They mostly go after the minorities. Personally I don't think a picture should be posted afterall it's not the picture who does the crime it's the person.

In my country the media attack minorities more than you'd believe luckily the BBC provides a semi-decent escape.

While him getting caught is a great thing... I really do I am just looking at this article as a whole. My favorite thing is when newspapers have lines such as

'Asian Immigrant', surely the term immigrant would surfice or better yet 'someone who came to this country to help it's economu'

Or the worst is when they find it necesory to point out someones origins in crime unless they are white. A white man is no different to an Asian one... to why is their origin so important?

You're looking for something that isn't there. QQ

I am hardly racist. I believe strongly in equality. I doubt true equality can ever be reached BUT I don't for one second believe one race is inferior to another... except fanboys.

I am not looking for something that isn't there. It's in my local newspaper everyday to such an extent that I refuse to read it.

I couldn't care which nationality it's the crime that's importsnt.

If it was a white man they Would of Never of posted the pic. But since its Any-other color they post the pic.

Now hold on. I see where you're going with this, but you cannot make this judgment based on one ore two observations.

The man is criminal and they posted his picture. woopty fricken do. Next you'll be telling us how the film avatar is racist like that awful sensationalist article by the telegraph suggested.

I'm white and I have had my picture posted after I did some dumb stuff when I was younger and got arrested.Then I went on the run while on probation. They had my picture in the paper and on the news, don't tell me "they only get the Black Man". When I was locked up people said the same thing "damn them white folks", all I could do was laugh and look at my skin then ask, Were do I sign up to become part of these "white folks"?, because some didn't tell them I was white. Criminals get punished Black or White, their pictures are also posted Black or White. If you don't want it posted don't do crimes, and don't try to say its only the black man.

I know people commit crime rather than. But in the media where I live immigrants are regulary targeted as the 'crime lords' and while you may disagree you are welcome to your opinion after all... what you said had no effect on mine.

The media go after immigrants and minorities to sell papers and improve ratings

I hope he rots in jail. Theft is not to be taken lightly.

pimpmaster2950d ago

hoestly, over 200 break-ins, people like this should just be executed by guillotine.

sunnygrg2950d ago

That is kinda harsh, but he will spend a considerable amount of his time in prison.

Sarcasm2950d ago

I understand some folks who resort to doing theft because they're in a tight spot, but really... 200 break-ins?
