      I was about to say the same thing, Big Logic. Violence against an Armenian is usually from another Armenian. And, yes, the luxury car is what gave it away.

      First, you can’t even spell ‘truth’..and matter of fact is, you’re being stereotypical…you guys hate on armenians because they drive nice cars…but matter of fact is, you too can afford it instead of your Ford F150s…Armenian’s just have better taste…there are bad apples in every race, so you shouldn’t generalize. At least armenians don’t behead or molest their children or kill their parents…

  7. Art says:

    Always sad to hear when a fellow Armenian takes the life of another Armenian. What is up with these stereotypical comments? Every race has it’s bad apples, don’t judge a whole race based on a handful of individuals. Most of us are hard working, family orientated citizens trying to make a decent living.
