A Hephzibah woman says she and her two children were pulled forcibly from her car by a gang of thieves that included a woman who had sold her the car.

Jasmine Ryan, of Byrd Road, told deputies that she had recently purchased a Toyota Corolla from a woman she identified as Destiny Perkins, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office report.

Ryan said she pulled into a parking lot at 2545 Peach Orchard Road about 5 p.m. Thursday and another vehicle pulled in behind her. Perkins and two black men got out of the vehicle and dragged Ryan from the driver’s seat, Ryan told deputies. The trio then removed Ryan’s two young children, who were in child restraint seats, and placed them on the ground before leaving in the car, the report said.

Deputies noted that Ryan had several cuts to her left elbow.

Holder

But according to attorney general Eric Holder, that would be profiling, JRC. And profiling is a crime in Holder's worldview.

Holder, that would be profiling..."

.
No, that would be OzBama, only yesterday talking about how he had experienced people clicking the door locks as he walked past their cars.

Really smart people, I'm guessing.

I will continue to profile

I will continue to profile and I am sure some do the same to me. Precaution and protection. Mr. Holder and President Obama have body guards 24/7 so they do not have to worry and they surely do not go into the areas I go. That would be beneath them in their eyes and statue.

PROFILE
Unpublished

Anybody who says they don't "profile" is lying. You tell me you don't check out someone who's in a close space with you and see if they might pose a threat? If you wonder around in life ignoring possible dangers you'll end up a victim sooner than later. I profile everyone black or white and always try and make eye contact with them. It's served me well for many years because it puts the other person on notice that you're aware of them. It's also a sign of respect when you nod to a another man.

There are 2 kinds of people....

Those that profile....and victims...if you are the first you are less likely to be the latter....

If you profile, you are more likely to survive,

and thrive.

If you don't, then you are not nearly as smart as you probably think you are.
