  2. I have scam daddies robbing me from above and below. No punishment for either. As long as you play by the rules you are going to get screwed from all directions.

  3. Eckford failed the basic intelligence test if he escaped within 30 days of his scheduled release.

    1. Basic intelligence test for him would be to see if he could put a stick in an anthill to find food. He would fail, not evolved far enough from the tree he fell out of.

  4. The left continuously pushes to get rid of guns, stating they want to make us all safe. This guy is probably going to be a perfect example of them not enforcing current laws because they actually don’t care anything about justice, only gun confiscation. Watch this guy get a slap on the wrist like so many other felons do when caught carrying. He is a perfect example of the ones who can never be let loose because they cannot function in society.
