Virginia Man Features “Trust Me” Teeshirt in His Mugshot For Auto Theft

800When Wilmer Lara Garcia allegedly decided to steal a Honda Civic, he wore a rather incongruous choice of teeshirt reading “Trust Me.”  He did leave a memorable mugshot however with the Fairfax County police.


Garcia was arrested with an accomplice . . .  and a cache of forged checks.

He is now charged with auto theft and two counts of forgery. Police say he was wearing the shirt that read “Trust Me.”

He was charged with auto theft and forgery. Trust it appears only goes so far.

  1. Maybe he thought that the middle class victim of his crime “could afford it.” Isn’t that the basic tenet of class warfare?

  2. On of the best car comedy movies of the ’80s was “Used Cars” with Kurt Russell playing a used car salesman with aspirations of becoming a state senator. His catch phrase was “Trust Me”, even using it on his bumper stickers. If you’ve not seen it, you need to as it is a hoot. It’s ironic that this alleged car thief had that on his shirt.

  3. Trust is how you steal those cars or pass those forged checks. In this case, it is not his good looks.

      1. Mohammed accepted a meal of roast mutton from a Jewish woman whose family he had just slaughtered. She’d poisoned it. His follower ate the poisoned meat, even after tasting it, because he did not want to insult him. Mohammed, after realizing he’d been poisoned, told the woman that she’d never be able to kill him. She answered that if he was a true prophet, the poison would not harm him. Otherwise, they would be rid of him. His follower died rapidly. Not only did Mohammed die, but he died in agony after long, protracted suffering, cursing the Jews and Christians with his last breath for building monuments upon graves (just like…Medina.) I wonder if Allah objected to his boasting about being impervious to poison, or the bloodbaths, rapes, and enslavement? Who knows.

        Jesus died to atone for the sins of mankind, calling out to God to forgive his murderers. Mohammed died because he wiped out a woman’s entire family in a bloodbath, raping and enslaving women, and a Jewish woman took her revenge upon him. He died cursing everyone. Allah allowed this to happen.

        Why anyone takes the Qu’ran literally and un-reformable is beyond me. Even the New Testament changed the practices of the Old Testament. A religion that can never be reformed, accordion to most of the adherents, can be problematic. Modern, moderate Muslims who live in peace, lovingly own dogs (without worrying that Angels won’t enter), and treat women as equals are reformers, but they would be harassed, persecuted, prosecuted, or even killed in many parts of the world where reformation is considered apostasy. No religion or political belief system should be insulated from criticism or calls for reform. Under religious freedom, moderate Muslims can follow their version of Islam in peace and tolerance. Most extremist regimes oppose religious freedom. I have grave concerns in how women, gays, and virtually everyone else is treated under Sharia Law around the world.

        1. Perhaps the moral of the story is, if you rape, enslave, forcibly convert others, murder people because of their religion, convince your favorite child bride wife that no woman suffers as much as a believer woman, treat women as half as important as a man, and take 9 year olds to wed, then Allah will not protect you from poison or other calamity. ISIS should take note. Maybe living a kind and tolerant life, getting along with everyone, would be better.
