  1. A hungry man is an angry man..there will be many more like him–this is what the APNU morons have created –many hungry people.

  2. ”…… kitchen knife valued at $450 and one shirt valued at $7500……”
    Am I reading correctly or is this a typographical error with regards to the cost of these items? How can the ordinary working man/woman afford to buy a shirt for that amount of money? Aren’t they being ripped off by those who sell that kind of shirt? The knife probably has gold plated blade. No wonder that poor, hungry chap did what he did, taking another’s property with his consent.
