I am glad that these thugs are caught. Now let's see how long would it take them to get out of jail with our good justice system and honorable judges.

time out? about 2-3 hours if they have the cash.

They will probably be out and on the next plane to America . Or drop out of sight on the boat .
There is one out of Samana bay twice a week . Typical behavior of Dominican law . I'm sure tgey have the stolen cash to make it work for them . Then imagine how many assault weapons tgey can pick up in gun shows before they rob banks there , or in P.R.

You see, its not all bad. Nelson and Elvin both had redeeming facets. I guess they're a pair of "straight shooters." Nevertheless, my advice to these jabronies, if you're thinking about quitting your day job to become a bank robber, first consider every facet of what your new life would be like. They should have just stay shooting clay pigeons and life would have been so much simpler.

Nevertheless, looking at this from different perspective. If you happen to be a member of a Shooting Federation, what that tells me is that their basic needs have been satisfied with enough left over expendable income to use for superfluous leisure activities. In other words, these group of thugs had no justifiable excuse to lead a life of crime and most certainly poverty is not one of them

hEY dOUBLE zERO dUMMY00, where exactly are you located in the Keys? I have been asking around for you, but people said they have not seen Captain Stinky in a while. Are you in Key Largo Tavernier, Islamorada, Marathon, Catecumbe Key or what? Maybe we can meet up for lunch. You know I can only afford the dollar menu at MckyD. Hope that's ok with you.

if not we eat at mortons steak house in Miami they also have a great steak. not sure if they allow Dominicans to dine at this restaurant I'll find out. see a few years ago a bunch of Dominican drug dealers was meeting at this restaurant a few times a week. the only problem was that when they went to use the bano they didn't pick up the toilet seat when they took a piss. causing many gringos to complain to mangerment at this restaurant. this caused the ban on all Dominicans from eating at this restaurant. these drugs dealers screwed all other Dominicans not all Dominicans piss on the Seat 1,000 of educated Dominicans would never do this nasty thing. they would leave the restaurant and piss in the street behind two park cars. they have class.

Well dummy00 if money is no problem then why don't you invite me. Just send me the plane tickets and I will be happy to accept your invitation to Lugers. But if you want to save on plane fare, the we can eat at Smith & Wollensky on Miami Beach. But no worry, I know you have a generous bank account, but since I am a vegan the bill won't be high at all. I will skip on the steak if that will help.

By the way . The dollar menu at Micky dee's. is for homeless people . You do have a roof over your head , don't you ? Or are you guys planning on living on the beach ? Micky dee doesn't sell veggy burgers any way . Try adding portobello mushrooms . They give them a meat flavor. since it sounds like you are going to end up cooking at a beach party . Gee ! Can we all come ? I'm no vegan , so I'll bring the steaks . I think these bank robbers where intent on doing the same thing .. Getting their thrills and and enjoying life on a beach with the cash between robberies . It never dawned on them that could get caught .

No you are wrong about their eating habits. They love their meat well done. Haitians are a delicacy for sharks in the Caribbean. But don't worry, keep talking, someday you’ll say something intelligent!
