Wesley John Winston
Wesley John Winston, 21, stole a car last Friday around 1:30 a.m. Unfortunately for Winston, it was a bait car parked by police.

The 1995 Nissan Pathfinder was parked at LaSalle Avenue South and 14th Street and came with a silent alarm, GPS, and internal video surveillance.

Less than 10 minutes after Winston pulled off in the car, cops stopped him and placed the young man under arrest. "Man, I should have just walked home but my feet were sore," Winston said, according to police.

Winston has been charged with felony theft of a motor vehicle, according to a criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County.

He faces a maximum five years in prison.

And people think that it's racism that leads to an overwhelming majority of blacks in prison.  Nope, it's got nothing to do with race, or even wealth.  It has everything to do with class.  This guy is an idiot, ill educated and ill mannered.  It would be nice if the paying public could ask his parents, what do they think of this prime example as to why these type should be sterilized at birth!

Funny why is that these people think they can take take take...?  I will tell you something, I will take back, and you can't claim racism.... These thugs are pathetic, they have bought into the hip hop lifestyle which is all a dreary lie.  Why are black people not more respectful?

In my walking days, I've contemplated it.  I don't know about other cities but the public transportation around here sucks.  Too bad he actually did it.  Dudes 21 facing a 2nd felony.  Good luck at that job interview.

He don't look black to me, he looks latino. In any event, I don't think he had good grades in school. It's about culture and education. Retards want to appear "respectable" to their crowd by "hitting a lick". Morons exist accross the board in all shapes and colors. It's the ones that have ambition and are honest the ones that get ahead in life.

Public transportation here may not be perfect but it is better than nothing. I think it is the people who ride public transportation that makes it an unpleasant experience. As for the would be car thief, he could have just walked over to Nicollet Mall. I know. I used to live in that area. The nearest bus stop was within a block or two. What a dummy.
