  • I think i saw him in an ISIS video

    • Smartass time waster

      I think it might be Richard Simmons, he’s missing you know. He’s probably relapsed, put the weight back on, gone back to eating children or whatever and now he’s holed up down in tuna town just trying to get by and failing like everybody else. It’s not cheap to keep a damn perm on your head you know.

  • kinda hard to see with the blurry pic and the mask on

  • Seems like there has been a LOT of crime lately, a lot more than the usual crap. Dope growing season must be starting.

    • sharpen your pencil

      Are you kidding me. You have got to be one of the dumbest trolls ever to happen on the internet. If you think the people smoking, or growing this plant, are the ones doing these crimes you are a tool for the stupendously moronic. That or you watch way too many Dr. Phil reruns…

    • I think it might have to do with the 19% cut on Social Security.

      • Just want the end of the story

        Social Security was not cut. Social Security is based on earnings, as in someone worked for it. Supplemental Security is administered by SSA, but is a hand out, not based on past productivity. SSI comes from the general taxpayer fund, and is subject to changes by the state legislature and Congress. If your check went down, it’s SSI.

  • Ya and you know weed smokers there so bad gonna rob you for all your money is never any thing I heard a stoner say maybe your food but never your money hahaha

    • sharpen your pencil

      When all you do is sit on your lazy ass and collect SSI like most of humboldt, you have plenty of time to think of how completely stupid of a post you can make up. Apparently “citizen” is one fat lazy check collecting moron… it’s easy to be mad at someone for busting their ass and making money, when the only busting of ass you do is the breaking of wind and trying to remember what you ate previously…..

    • Not only that but they make their money.. No need to Rob anyone.. Its others robbing them

  • I’m a teenager and even I think all this crime is bullshit I’ve 3 friends die this year to being murdered by guns shit like this pisses me off

  • Chris it might be time for you to make an evaluation of your life. I’m not trying to be a troll, but maybe you are hanging with the wrong crowd? Now is the time to make a change. Where do you want to be in 5,10,20 years? From the sounds of it, you might be in an unfavorable position. Only you can make the change that is needed. Take a look at most successful adults and ask yourself how they got to where they’re at. Is that where u would like to be someday? Or would you rather be at the opposite end of the spectrum? Your choice.

  • What would a none semi automatic handgun look like? flintlock?

    • pretty sure a revolver isn’t considered a semi auto.

    • Smartass time waster

      “semi automatic” would mean a gun that has a clip and a slide and which ejects shells and chambers rounds automatically every time you pull the trigger. Not a fully automatic which would keep firing until you let off the trigger (unless it is fully automatic set on 3 round bursts) . also not a revolver. First question when trying to determine a handgun used in a crime would be ” automatic or revolver”


    I’d be able to identify this person if I knew them , the mask though makes this impossible not to mention the low quality picture!

  • If those are the best pictures they got…He got away with it.
