    I want to know how he gets out after killing a teenager. And not to long ago a guy hits a car with two elderly people in it and kill them and he is still in jail. .I think his bond should of been so high he couldn’t get out.

    Amazing how a slimebag like this that drinks, drive and kills little kids can have such a onerous grin on his face while having his mugshot taken.
