It is unfortunate that restaurateur Richard lost his friend in such a tragic way but why blame America? A criminal individual killed Coffyn, not a society. Furthermore, I have lived in America 65 years and have never had my radio stolen. Perhaps Richard should exercise better judgment as to where he parks his car.
Also, don't people in France eat French food? Maybe Richard would be safer away from such a degenerative people as we.
Bon appetit, Finke.
