(1) - Burglary (also called breaking and entering and sometimes housebreaking is a crime, the essence of which is illicit entry into a building for the purposes of committing an offense.Now I know not everyone knows the basics of law but that's how the law reads. The reporter's lack of explaining this isn't poor reporting IMO, it's assuming the majority of readers have a basic grasp of law which clearly not all do. So point taken there.
(2) Yes the story did explain the type of equipment. It clearly states "Surveillance cameras" so I'm not sure how you skipped over that not once, but twice. It doesn't go on to explain the intent but that's because the story hasn't progressed yet I'm sure. Who knows for sure (yet) why he wanted to spy on these people. That will likely come after investigation.(3) On the last point, I agree that smokebombs don't necessarily add up to an arson charge but it says he threw them down a "trash chute" which could obviously lead everyone to believe it was on fire so that would be my guess as to where the arson charge stems from, even though it doesn't appear that he actually set anything on fire. So point halfway taken there as well.
Regardless of your age, race, gender, political views, religion or anything else....can you please learn to spell at least HALFWAY properly if you're going to argue against the unnecessary black stereotypes in this debate? rking gave us an educated and well thought out response, so why can't you do the same?
Turn off your caps lock and stop bragging about being a business owner. SEVERAL people are successful business owners...the US is the Entrepreneurship capital of the world. We get your point that you're not a part of the problem but it doesn't give you any credibility in this argument when you still can't spell properly or string together a decent argument against anyone who has posted so far.
The 21 preceding comments have made my day. That will be all.
somethingorother, rumors are that he stole the keys from the RA office/housing office and let himself in that way.
Macallanlover, please read the entire story and/or Google things you don't know before commenting. You only make yourself look dumb this way.
