  • Follow Latest News

Traffic was backed up tonight near Washington Road and Interstate 20 after a robbery suspect crashed his car and took off on foot.

Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Scott Gay said police were following the car about 6 p.m. after a reported robbery at Huntington Apartments in the 2900 block of Perimeter Parkway.

Another car was involved in the wreck, Lt. Gay said. The pursuit had not yet turned into a chase when the accident occurred, he said.

Authorities are looking for two suspects, whom Lt. Gay described as Hispanic males. No further description was available.

E-verify is working! Expect more out of work foreign Hispanics having car wrecks while evading the police. I just hope our jail officers are doing background checks on them.

My brother lives in a small

My brother lives in a small town in California that has lots- and I mean lots- of unemployed illegal Hispanics on welfare. He said, "There are no jobs here in this town, so they can't work. Wait, I take that back, they all have night jobs- stealing."

Still loving the racist

Still loving the racist south...

Just becuase someone is Hispanic doesn't mean they are imigrants, pull you head out of the dirt yourself. So if they were black males they were African imigrants? What if the were white? Oh wait, if they were white is fine because you own this country; you have the right to claim this country as your country. Don't be so ignorant to asume that because someone is Hispanic they are an imigrant.

As far as you "night job" comment... another ignorant comment. All of America is so well behaved. If illegal imigrants are on welfare is the American's government's fault for not having the common sense, know how, or intelligence to run their own programs. How about all the lazy Americans that are on welfare too, that scam the system? Tired of seeing those lazy Americans buying T-bones, crab legs, lobster tails at the grocery store while I am trying to stay on a budget. Are you one of them?

I wonder who wrote this:

"Typical idiots. They really make themselves look intelligent. Isn't there more in life than white,black,white,black,white, black?????"

Unless you are Hispanic that is...

Between 1980 and 2003 the US

Between 1980 and 2003 the US incarceration rate more than tripled, from 139
to 482 per 100,000, and the number of prisoners increased from 320,000 to 1.39
million.
• Blacks are seven times more likely to be in prison than whites. Hispanics are
three times more likely.

huh!??! "The pursuit had not yet turned into a chase when the accident occurred, he said."

I was driving on Washington Road at about 6pm that night and I saw a small white car being chased at a high rate of speed by a white pickup truck and 4 Columbia County police cars...... I'd call that a chase!
