    I can tell you have never been to jail BC to wish that on somebody is sick ! You also act like you have never made a mistake.. I’m not from Wilmington but I’m looking to move there. Are all the people there either an ass or a drug dealer?

    …and don’t take drug dealing, child poisoning thieves lightly at all. We encourage and assist our LEOs when the opp comes about. We watch out for and protect our neighbors and children (unless we live in Creekwood, they just shoot each other after drug deals).

    Tell ya what “baltimore’s own”. Do yourself a big favor and keep your tightie-whities parked where they are. We do not need, welcome or otherwise encourage wise-asses of your nature to become a long term member of our society here in Wilmington.

    On top of that, since you admittedly have jail-time experience, I can tell you that you definitely don’t want to experience ours, but from your attitude, you’ll likely find your self in there well afore ya know it!!!
