Given their childhoods, and

Given their childhoods, and the nature of their dad, I am not surprised that Robbie and Brandice turned out the way they did. But, there comes a time in everyone's life where they need to take responsibility for their choices. They knew right from wrong. I wish that I had been there for them.

Brandice Ward bank robber

Brandice Ward is the biggest low-life P.O.S. you could ever know. He's a habitual felon who belongs behind bars for a LONG time. Let's hope he and the other scum bags rot in jail.

nice to see that white folks can still hang with the best of the brothers

Intelligent ones, these

Intelligent ones, these guys. Good job to all who worked the incident....officers, detectives, k9 handlers, and dispatchers. Ten eight.


Put their butt in prison for about twenty years and let them think about that. No mercy. No deals.
