    Channel 8 names the perps and the victim, but does not mention that they stole the car. Channel 13 mentions that they stole the car, but doesn’t mention the victims name or the perps names. What does this mean?

      I was there and actually followed the suspects while on the phone with police. They didn’t steal the car, one of the kids jumped out of the car they were driving and robbed a guy getting out if his car.

      WHO or KCCI. Neither would know journalism if it were to walk up and slap ’em. Neither give you a complete story – both give you the finest mindset of a second grade education. Even Jethro Bodine graduated the sixth grade!

    Where did self pride and dignity go? Are half the parents out there not teaching their children that stealing is wrong or are they too lazy to parent responsibly? Work and earn what you need in life!! Throw the book at these thugs and make an example of them!! I’m sick of having to look over my shoulder just going out in public, that’s why I carry a concealed weapon. If more responsible gun owners would carry, then thugs would think twice about attempting this act.

      We and you might be better served if, instead of concealing you just focus on the carry and show people from the gitgo you are packing. Seems like that would be better prevention still.
