SCOTTSDALE -- For Todd and Gia Rooker, life was picture perfect in their Scottsdale home, but they wanted more.

Well: I blame the pro illegal crowd for besmirching any person who looks 'Latino' (Hispanic or not) due to their demands for amnesty. This woman is from Canada with her family being of Italian heritage.

I concur. Janet Murguia and her La Raza minions are responsible for this. Sadly, they don't care. As long as it supports their illegal alien agenda, this will continue.

what????

this is racial profiling. kinda like DWB. driving while black. or brown.

the fault should not fall on the victim here. it is on the idiot cops who go around wasting peoples time. pulling people over because they look a certain way. without probable cause!!!

all the other brown folk here better watch out. you might be next.

i personally am used to it. and i make sure to keep my hands where there eyes can see.

dont need to be a casualty of the po po.

so a third party is at fault. and not some prejudiced cop who pulled a lady over for no reason?

so the next time i get pulled over for no reason i will make sure to blame jesse jackson and anyone advocating for my/kids rights.

ya, blame the other person and not the one with the actual power here.

its all a power game:

Well, I think the officer was at fault, he should have asked for her drivers license, he most likely was an eager beaver.

Careful.

According to these people, Black folks are the only people who have truly faced discrimination in this country.
Well, Latinos have faced some too, but they mostly brought it upon themselves.

And don't bring up discrimination or profiling of Latinos without someone popping up to say its not possible since Latinos can be of any race. Or on how Irish and Italians have it just as bad as Latinos. Or something about "dark skinned anglos".

Did any of you even read the 'Comments' section at the bottom of the article------------methinks I smell a rat in that said 'victim' may not be telling the whole story.
