How can you link fatherhood, drugs, and whatever else you said to an event of armed robbery and shooting. I guess it would be the same as me calling you an illiterate hillbilly whom is the product of inbreeding.

what a shame, he just

what a shame, he just managed to break into the wrong home, or else his career would have been shortened, better luck next time thug!


Oh just another teenager with a gun. I bet his parents,grandparents,cousins, aunts, uncles all are say he is such a good boy. He would never do something like this. Well he did. Just another drug head carrying a gun. I bet his wrap sheet is a mile long. Also willing to bet he has more than 1 child doesn't work and is a drug dealer and user. To bad the owner didn't have his own gun and could have blown him away.

shouldbeen in jail

This is sad they should keep him and get the rest of his friend and lock they behind up


I don't get what your saying...but I do feel alot better about myself after reading this.
