      Even more disturbing? He’s got a hickey on his neck, so there’s a female out there willing to put her lips on this schmuck.

      • Seriously? ?? Looks like meth scab. Tatoo on right side of neck. You call that a hickey on his left side. Way to dark for a hickey unless the female had hours to getr done.

      why would anyone admit to being a marijuana junkie?

      marihuana isn’t cool, or welcome for hundreds of miles….

      He should be banished from the country on that fb alone, the crimes are another punishment.

      Simply banishing people from the country is the best way, why feed and house criminals? Deport them and move on….

      • I think you need to be banished chump. You r fucking obnoxious. Seriously, u really think you’re that much better than all the people you put down constantly? Dream on buddy, you’re twisted views r annoying and majorly ridiculous.

  • Any relation to the Dimmicks of Benbow area? One of those was a sheriff’s deputy who was dirty then ended up in weed-trucking cahoots with Patrick Murphy of later Emerald Scamily Farms. One was the guy who scammed away Reggae from the SoHum community. Wonderful family!

    • You, my friend, listen to way too much gossip. You should check your facts before you let your finger tips do all the talking. [edit]

      • I know my facts. You are running distraction for some reason. But yeah- it’s easy to check if he’s related to those 2 other Dimmicks I mentioned so I will do that myself for my own curiousity. Dimmick Ranch, Tom Dimmick…Rick Dimmick was the one who left the HCSD under scrutiny and later was involved w/ Patrick Murphy property that was busted….hmm…yeah it took about a minute and I’m pretty sure this kid is same family. It runs like that a lot around here.

  • Hahah Bruh I use to know him. It’s funny someone said he went bad after high school, naw he did it during.

  • All he needs is a set of bolts sticking out of his neck and he have it going on.

  • Im curious why K9 Vex didnt tag the bum… is he wearing a command collar? [edit]

  • He’s got the eyes and look of someone who doesn’t care about anyone or anything except himself.
    No shame, remorse, guilt, or conscience.
