  • You think he purchased the pistol legally, or stole it from an irresponsible owner?

  • He looks a bit like Sideshow Bob

  • They took an electronic reader–like a Kindle?

    This is what happens when you get too literate, kids. Stay out of school. Those teachers get you hooked on reading, and you’ll end up like these fools, breaking in to homes, stealing books and e-readers, spending all your time at the library, trying to slake your unquenchable thirst for knowledge.

    • I love your post.

    • Read Head
      Thank-you for your comment, you may have saved thousands of wasted lives of people trying to become erudite. Some become addicted to education and end up as polymaths. With enough education they become unstoppable and even stoop so low as to become politicians!

      I assume that you are serious. Nothing like a little humor to lighten up the day.

      Oh, By the way, happy Ides of March.

  • Wow! That’s all I gotta say.

  • Denise is from crescent city. And her ex is quite the dope cook. They have both been to prison for dope cooking and who knows what else. Crescent city is more than likely where she’s hiding. The ex’s name is Robert latimer. Which explains why he hasn’t been seen in crescent city for a while , because he’s been in Loleta.


  • Cooking dope in lol eta imagine that . People of South of the border have been cooking it for years maybe the cops will finely figure it out .duh the dude has a lazy eye and all what a specimen .looks perty sucked up

  • White trash.

    • I`m White and I`m proud, I stand tall Ya`all , and I`m trash with cash, and me do-gots the hash, and I cooks the mash. White Lightning that is. Texas Tea.
      I think I have a future in the Rap Music industry.

  • Kym, I’d think about the last comment in this section. Perhaps it is inappropriate language?

  • electronic reader and two cell phones
