The underlying meaning of the video: we actually have black men who could get away with stealing but chose not to.

What a dumb and racist video.

those guys are my heroes. not so much for their conformity, but for using common sense... something that seems to be lacking a bit these days.

What the hell is this? someone walked in to a store and payed and they got aired on national TV? Why is this a big deal.

And I am all against saying someone is a criminal because X is black but when black people stand for 28,4% arrests in US then I can understand peoples suspicion.

*Arrests

38% of violent crimes. (manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault)

30% of property crimes. (burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson.)

34% of the car thefts.
33% of forcible rapes.
56% of robberies
50% of murders.

13% of america is black.

Word it is a good gesture by those kids as a lot of people might have done differently but the reaction is like omg can't believe those guys didnt steal. But how can anyone know if they paid for everything they took anyway?

Interesting story regardless

why is anyone even bringing up race?

it was a group of mixed races. what they had completely in common is being young guys from the nearby uni's football team.

why is anyone bringing up race?

I saw this earlier an i have no idea how this is news?

So they were in a situation where it would have been really easy to break the law but decided not to break the law? What's news worthy there? Is that not expected out of people anymore?

And besides its a convince store and every half wit knows those places are loaded with cameras.

I've done this before myself. Been in a rush and just left the money + a little extra just to make sure it was enough. I diddnt think what I did was a big deal

So if the store was supposed to be closed, why the hell was the door left propped open?

Edit: nvm, just saw the evidence that it just wasn't locked.
