    If you were smart, you would know that this post is not from a white lady; AND, race does matter in this case because it is frequently referred to that the surrounding community (mostly Blacks) is committing these crimes on the ODU students – this is why there was secrecy in releasing these mug shots. They wanted us to believe the hype. There have been plenty of incidences were Black suspect’s photos were released to the public JUST on suspicion alone. I smell a rat in this case. AND, even after an arrest was made while the story was being broadcasted (meaning that they already had the probable cause), their mug shots were never posted to the public on the news – however, plenty of Black suspects photos are posted even if there is no proof to make an arrest or indictment. We are NOT falling for that excuse. Go Figure! Anyone that disagrees must be WHITE and offended by what I am posting. Reality is biting at them (a hit dog will holler)!

    Ok so you are highlighting the 1 out of 100. Stop trying to take away from the sad truth. Help find solutions from the main problem, not deflect onto something that is not the root cause. No one sits there and says “oh my! White suspects, we must not release”. Give us all a break. I hope you stayed safe in this winter and used the time to reflect on the real issues. Have a blessed day.

    • Lisa

      You must be very offended due to your posting of a very bogus statistic. What’s the matter? Are you embarrassed? By the way, there are certainly more than 1 in 100 white criminals. You probably lost count because most of them are shooting up elementary schools and college campuses or blowing up federal buildings! Now, those are some statistics for you!

      • Betty Rhuble

        You do realize that most times when a suspect’s picture is shown before their name is known is an attempt to identify the person right? In this case they were known. Your argument has no merit. Maybe the next crime you will be able to cash in on your Crimeline tip.

        • Lisa

          Actually, your argument has no merit and makes no sense. They already had the two white thugs’ names – they did not need any further investigation. They would have had to interview witnesses PRIOR to having probable cause to make an arrest under their names. No matter how you slice it or try to make sense of it, this was a blatant attempt to hide the fact that two white boys committed this crime. You are just upset that your own tip did not pay because you would have turned in your own kind this time.

          • Betty Rhuble

            Ok you can win this one. Enjoy it. Plenty of black crime to drown this one out that will happen any minute now. It always does. Try it put some energy in that. Or is it just easier to hate as you do? I know, rhetorical question.

          • Lisa

            Be careful – your true racist colors are showing… Now, who is hating on who? It is typical that you think that you are above the law. Truth be told – there are PLENTY of white crimes, including the civil rights and hate crimes committed on Blacks for no reason in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s – Hell, even today. You know, the ones that were covered up – now, that drowns us all! It they were counted in the statistics like they should have been, then you would be hiding your face with SHAME! AND I am sure that there will be another school shooting soon by a white thug.

  • Peter Gibbs

    First of all Chase johnson i went to school he is mixed he is half white half black and david is white but neither are thugs but always have been good guys life of the party dony no why they did what they did but they did could been anyone

    • Lisa

      Well Chase certainly looks white and it is the white half that did this stupid crime. You white people hate on President Obama and he is half white, but because he looks Black, you want to hate on him. Well don;t give us Chase Johnson – he looks white and he can stay over there with the white ratchet people.

    • Lisa

      And where is the ALL WHITE jury when your racist a** needs one _ huh? Maybe you and your kind can get a pass on more CRIMES!

    • Lisa

      You are a white devil, so you are the lowest of all lows. You will never win, especially with me, so bow out now!

  • Lisa

    Hey Betty<
    The below University announcement is the crime that you were waiting on…but guess what? It was committed by a WHITE THUG! Ha Ha!

    "Old Dominion University Police are investigating a robbery that occurred March 4, 2014, at approximately 8 p.m. at the Tropical Smoothie restaurant located on Monarch Way. The suspect entered the restaurant, approached the cashier, and produced a note demanding money. No weapon was displayed; however, the suspect implied he had one. The suspect fled the area on foot toward Killam Avenue after receiving an undetermined amount of cash.

    The suspect is described as a white male, in his 20's, approximately 5’8” tall, and 150 lbs. He was last seen wearing a black skull cap, long sleeved green t-shirt and black pants. See the attached photo.

    If you recognize the suspect, do not confront him and call the ODU police immediately at 683-4000.

    Members of the community are reminded to follow these safety precautions:
    Be aware of your surroundings, even when frequenting restaurants and businesses.
    Notify the police if you observe suspicious individuals and/or activities.
    The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information should contact Detective Janka of the Old Dominion Police at 683-4000."

    • Cort

      In reading these sophomoric posts, why do you just seem to be a Race baiter and hater who can’t stand to acknowledge the truth about societal issues black or white. Your prejudice is no different. In fact it is worse. You should be ashamed.

      • Lisa

        Cort,
        It is funny how you jumped on the bandwagon and did not acknowledge your white counterparts’ wrongdoings – this is so typical of people like you. You people really think that you are above the law or suspicion. They started it and I had to finish it for them. I know that it hurts to know that most of you people are rude, ignorant, and juvenile as well. History does not lie and the truth shames the devil!

        • Cort

          You haven’t finished a thing troll. You just promote hate. Good luck on your little narrow minded island.

          • Lisa

            Now, now, Cort,

            The narrow minded one is definitely you – see how quickly you became the juvenile name calling fool that you are? You really cannot hide those ignorant colors – can you? Poor thing -the truth is stinging that a**!

          • Cort

            Oh sweety Lisa don’t flatter yourself. I’m sorry your hiding behind a keyboard damning a whole race is your only joy in life. Go outside now and then. Join a support group. Your hate will send you to an early grave.

          • Lisa

            Oh, Cort,
            Same advice goes to you – I see that you are behind a keyboard as well and spreading hate as normal. It seems like you should have went outside yourself instead of jumping on my post with your hateful comments. You may need those brain cells for later – so please conserve. I strongly advise that you do not start with me, because you will NEVER win. Don’t come for me unless I send for your a**! Take heed from the other idiots that you felt to defend on here.

          • Cort

            Ha I doubt anyone comes for you. You go girl! Be proud your are the winning troll. Celebrate with your cat tonight, if it hasn’t left you too. Here I will show you, I’m out. It’s been fun playing with you today. And they say ignorance is no fun. Don’t worry I won’t post any more replies. I know you have to get the last word in. So please . . . .

          • Lisa

            Empty-headed Cort,
            I’m sure that ignorance is no fun for you anymore because you have practiced it for so long, white trash! Yes, it is best that you quit now because the longer that you make your ignorant and childish posts, the more dumb you reveal that you are. Why don’t you try reading a book? – That’s only if you can.

  • Sheri

    Wow…All I can say is learn the facts before you say something stupid. There was not a delay in releasing the Mug Shots. Chase Johnson turned himself into Norfolk PD – after midnight Sunday after the altercation. His Mug Shot was released Tuesday morning. I seriously doubt it had anything to do with the color of his skin. Like Peter said..he is mixed half black / half white. So how ignorant are you Lisa – to say “he looks white, so he can stay over there”. You are the one that’s racist… David Grimm was arrested in Prince William County – Monday (after the altercation) and was held in PWC until Wed – when he was transported to Norfolk. He was then processed by Norfolk PD and his mugshot was released the next day. Talk about ratchet…I’m sure that’s you 100%. Have a great night…

    • Lisa

      Silly Sheri,
      If that is not the most stupid white trash cover-up story of all time, what is? First of all, you are the ratchet one and I bet you were the first one to hate on President Obama because he LOOKS BLACK. Truth is, these mug shots WERE NOT released as quickly as you just lied – they WERE NOT televised on the news broadcasts until up to one week later AFTER the crime and arrests occurred. So, you better go check your facts and try to pull that BS with someone else. You people are always making excuses for blatant racist behavior. You are just mad because we finally got the facts that two WHITE boys committed this awful crime – just face it! President Obama identifies himself as Black and Chase Johnson identifies himself as WHITE. Now, good night on that!

    • Wichita

      Sheri, you can’t fix stupid And Lisa is clearly that. Deflection and irrelevance are her only arguments and that clearly shows her ignorance. Ranting and name calling and kill whitey is all she knows.

      • Lisa

        Stupid and Ignorant Wichita,
        Kill the black nig***s, hang them, take away their rights, “we don’t want them in our neighborhood”, “let’s blame ALL of the crimes on them” is obviously what you and your kind have known for years; so, don’t jump on here trying to justify your own hidden hatred. Truth is, my very first post was my own observation of how this case was handled and I spoke facts. I had to come out swinging when the ignorant people, such as you, decided to jump on my post and name call, throw out their prejudice views, tried to put down the Black community, and other childish rants. Now, I am NOT the one for them to start with and if you and your BUMS cannot handle the truth, then move to another country because I am free to call it like I see it. We do have a voice, less you forget – those days are over and you will NOT intimidate me!

      • Sheri

        Wichita – well said. I’m confused – I was never talking about President Obamab and I could care less what color he is. You see – RACIST LISA – the color of somebody’s skin does not matter to me. You have no idea what race I am. And I didn’t lie about anything – the mug shots are online and the dates they were released are online. You are a waste of time…because you think you and your bs beliefs are right. It’s because of people like YOU that there is hate between races. Open up your mind to change…and stop being so foolish.

        • Lisa

          Ignorant Sheri,

          The foolish one is you and you do not have to reveal your race to be hateful and a liar as well. The NEWS BROADCASTS did NOT post these mug shots on TELEVISION until UP TO one week AFTER the arrests, stupid! What part of that do you not get? Are you that simple-minded? AND, Liar, you did bring up the race issue by stating the ethnic background of Chase Johnson as if you scored some sort of points because you feel that he is identified as Black. Don’t pull that here – I saw right through your judgmental a**. Now you are trying to clean it up as if you are innocent in this whole ordeal. You and Wichita can take a flying leap.

          • Sheri

            First of all…LISA, you keep saying that Chase Johnson claims to be white and not black and that it was his “white” half that did this stupid crime. I am not sure how you can make that assumption seeing as I am pretty sure you do not know him. And you said white people hate President Obama because he looks black. You have no idea what you are talking about. You do not seem to know much. You are so ignorant and clearly you hate white people. You are a sad…excuse for a black woman. Looking at your comments – you should be ashamed of yourself. Sp jow bout you stop talking…and learn something. I really hope you do not have children – because you will push off your ignorance and hatred on them. You should be disgusted with yourself.

          • Lisa

            Stupid Sheri,
            Let me take the time out of my schedule to get your ignorant a** together – not that your response even warrants a reply. First of all, do you know what an ANALOGY is in conversations? Go look it up. You are so quick to get highly offended by my post and rush to try to give me your little piece of mind that it flew directly over your head. I see that I really hit a sore spot with that President Obama analogy. GUILTY, are we?? They always said that a hit dog will holler. Why don’t you find another hobby and go stalk someone else’s posts because your comments are VERY INSIGNIFICANT. Also, here is the question of the day for your SMALL mind to ponder – Who said that I was Black? Do you know who you are really commenting to when you write your ignorant responses? Are YOU making assumptions? I can tell what race you are just by your snide remarks and what STINGS you. I am a TRUTH FINDER. The fact is – you do not need to be classified as white or black to know the TRUTH of the matter. My first post stated it all – Deal with it!

          • Trienda

            Take time out of your schedule, ha! It seems you have plenty of time to do nothing but post hate. Meal time must be a sad time for you.

          • Lisa

            Silly Trienda,
            I guess you had nothing better to do at your meal time, so you decided to jump on here and spread hate yourself. Go get a life!
