    This guy was out on an unrelated meth lab bust? And this was RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE MIDDLE SCHOOL!!! There should be trumped-up charges just for that.

    You’re the greatest! I know that’s nasty business, very dangerous (and from what I understand, stinky). Thank you SO much for taking this kind of trash out of circulation.

    The only conspiracy there was was 2 people working with the law to set up an innocent man. What they don’t tell you is that the other two suspects had previously been charged as well with meth related charges and they chose to conspire with a crooked system to get an innocent man. This is the USA and we are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty but not in Brunswick county! One more thing, I got quite a laugh out of the previous comments. It’s really hard to fathom that human beings can be so stupid. Quite entertaining!
