What's wrong with his spelling of "roommate"?

And, I really hope the police find these two a-holes. Mountain View is not the clean, peaceful city it was years ago.
Also, after you find the two idiots, could you please kick them in the head a few times so they can understand what it is like to be beaten? People are really terrible.. they torture and abuse every living thing on this earth and NEVER learn.. How the hell did we become like this?

Did the debt get paid? Then what's the issue?

Headline misspells the word, amusing for professionals.

This is a serious story about a man getting knocked out by a beating, then robbed.

Is the spelling of a word really the most important thing here?
Grow up!

Hmmmm, this doesn't sound like something black guys would do.

The article says they are black. Please read!!

Also, it's really pathetic that they beat him up over $150. The victim is 36.. his old roommate is probably around his age.. if you are in your 30's and you're acting like THAT, you should be thrown in a den with lions so they can teach him a lesson. If you cannot live like a civilized person, you should not be a part of society. Go live in a jungle along with the rest of the animals.

Shouldn't be too difficult to catch these bad guys, since apparently the victim recognized them.
