LI ‘OBAMA CARE’ PLOY IN ROBBERY

By TAYLOR K. VECSEY and KIRSTEN FLEMING

August 30, 2009

Three people posed as insurance agents hawking President Obama’s health-care reform plan to gain entry to a Long Island home, where they pistol-whipped, shot and robbed two women and a man, authorities said.

Vance Jackson, 46, of Yonkers, and Benjamin Thompson, of Brooklyn, were arraigned yesterday in Central Islip on attempted-murder and burglary charges.

A female accomplice, Natalie Taylor, 26, of Nyack, is expected to be arraigned today.

The men were nabbed about a mile from the Huntington crime scene in an SUV, and Taylor was apprehended a few hours later, police said.

Prosecutors said Thompson and Taylor approached a home on Virginia Avenue at around noon Friday, and then began to talk about Obama’s policies, while Jackson pushed into the door seeking cash.

Taylor allegedly pistol-whipped one woman, and Thompson shot another in the foot as Jackson led the man upstairs to retrieve some cash.

"When he didn’t get enough money, he shot the man twice in the neck, once in the back, and once in the chest," said a Suffolk County prosecutor at the men’s arraignment.

Prosecutors said the two men, both with lengthy rap sheets, hatched the plan when they met for the first time at a parole meeting in Brooklyn.

Thompson was out on parole with four violent felony convictions. Prosecutors believe he has 17 felony and five misdemeanor cases pending. Jackson also has at least six convictions for violent felonies

Isn’t irony ironic?

This certainly smacks of life imitating art.

Or maybe it’s the other way around.

But was it Karl Marx or Saul Alinsky who said, ‘never steal anything small’?

    What a shock that these Health Care supporters are African Americans.

    I held such high hopes that our criminal class would begin to diversify.

    Alas, white America just can’t seem to get what Hope and Change is all about.

    Excepting our politicians, of course.

    Jacking whitey around………….that’s our “Hope and Change” from the Obama color blind camp!

    I would not put it past the Criminal Justice Dept. to release these 3 misdirected negros just as they released the Black Panthers for their transgressions when their Deliverer was was being “JACK” into office.

    Pleading the case, “We been pistol whipped by the honky’s fo’ 400 years and it be time we be given sum back der way!”

    Can’t wait for the ACORN Census…………..

    They can’t all be Oblamer supporters. I mean, one of them was driving an SUV! Obviously a plant by the vast right wing astroturf tea party movement. Why else would he be driving an evil gas guzzlein’ CO2 pumping pollution machine? He’s just been caught unprepared monitarily to wait until the new legislation that provides free gas for votes. If he could only have waited for the communists to finish their takeover. HURRY UP OBIE… WE WANT OUR FREE GAS ALREADY… AND FREE RENT… AND FREE HEALTHCARE… cheezuz… Does pistol whipping people for gas money qualify as a green job?

      Maybe they are on Al Toad’s staff.

    What race were the victims?

    • Liberals Demise says:

      My guess is that The plan these turds were hawking didn’t cover stupid people duped into allowing thugs into their house only to be needing Congressional Health Care to get past these injuries!!

    Just part of Obama’s civilian army

  7. Colonel1961 says:

    Let’s give them credit. At least when they were ripping them off, they did it ‘honestly’, i.e., no pretense that they were saving them money or providing better care, huh?

    Taken to its logical conclusion, I’m a little scared when street criminals have more integrity than our government officials. I’m just sayin’…

    p.s. shouldn’t 17 felonies count as ‘3 strikes you’re out’ or at least the death penalty?
