Are you making this up literally as you type it? Subprime auto loans have been a major market force since early 2009 when CfC caused a spike in the value of lower-end used cars at the exact same time people both didn't have down payments and couldn't afford their previous car notes anymore. These aren't big time… » 12/16/14 9:47pm Tuesday 9:47pm

I have been in this EXACT situation more than once and can tell you exactly what Vasquez did to get that reaction, he told the cop he was wrong. In Texas on paper tags you don't need an inspection sticker but most cops don't know that, they tend to not like having their authority questioned and this is a pretty… » 12/15/14 9:23pm Monday 9:23pm

I've got a deal for you, let us have a national debate on white murderers when the percentage of white murderers per the population is half of what is is for black murderers and not a quarter? » 12/02/14 4:00pm 12/02/14 4:00pm

I chose to do so just as cops chose to be cops. $59k is a ton of money by any measure but with benefits and retirement if cops go looking for sympathy for not getting paid enough the average American is… » 11/13/14 11:28pm 11/13/14 11:28pm

Right fucking on, that child didn't die totally in vain, his death assured that Coleman never got the chance to hurt anyone else. It points to a failure in our system that his mother didn't get the same penalty. I am not "pro" death penalty but I won't give that woman's death a second thought. » 9/17/14 10:26pm 9/17/14 10:26pm

You are absolutely the least informed person on the entirety of Jalopnik. Sprint cars at a short track like that don't have spotters to inform the drivers of what's going on around them, the cars don't have mirrors and Stewart never actually hit Ward's car. Stewart came around the track after just going under yellow… » 8/28/14 10:10pm 8/28/14 10:10pm
