  • How cute is he? Can you amagine him applying for a job?

  • Good boy nordy! You know why dogs eat poop? To get the taste of tweaker out of there mouth

  • I listened to this on the scanner last night.
    Anything about the spike strip and high speed chase last night about the same time…Stafford is where they said they put the strip down last night at 3am.

  • Wow, 18 and already has prison style tattoos on his face. How much you want to bet this guy will never even be a shred of a productive member of society. He’s pretty well sealed his fate with that ugly mug.

  • Wow, 18 yo and his face tats say “I gave up on life a long time ago.” Sad.

  • MS-13 wannabe. Put him down now.

  • What a gross individual. Gang signs should be illegal. It shows they are domestic terrorists.

    I think it is actual a public service action when you can see the tats.
    The fella has five dots on his face. Or are they tear drops?
    I have been told they represent either folks they have lost to death or represent actions done by the person.
    Pretty sad to see the young man all marked up.
    Hope he has lots of folks praying for his redemption.
    Must be awful hard on his family for him to be in such troubles.
    Hope justice is served and he gets the help he needs to turn his life around.

  • Crest Mouth Watch

    They do laser removal in gang rehabilitation programs although the leader of the bloods one of the people who originally started gangs shot and killed two Taiwanese people who owned a convenient store they were innocent people he just wanted to be the leader of a gang he was executed on San Quenten death row he also decided to call a gang truce between the Crips and Bloods he also denounced all gang banging and wrote a book that President Bush commended but the Parole Board still had him executed because he deserved it. So stop gang banging dumb people and get an education or something before you end up dead loser. O.G. stupid get those tattoos removed.

  • Fake machismo.

  • Waste of air, just a matter of time before he ruins someone else’s life before being locked away forever, we should do something productive with him like make him find mines we left in poor country’s by walking grid patterns

  • What creates prople like this young man…is poverty & income disparity plus a hopeless vision of the future. There are MILLIONS of youngsters coming up to follow in his footsteps and y’all seem to think Trump is the solution. You cannot win the fight you are in without creating justice for the poor & disenfranchised among us.

    • I’m not voting for trump nor Hillary, I can’t bring myself to support either, tho I think Hillary will continue to lead us down the same dead end path we are going if not worse, trump is just too out of his mind. truth is most of these people do come from decent family’s and think that it s cool to be worthless regardless of opportunity or income, movies? Video games? Lame steam media? I wish I knew the answers,

    • Its His Own Damn Fault

      BULLSHIT!! Complete bullshit! I’ve always said I never understood why people with a lack of money, do dark, negative, stupid shit. I spent years with little to no money. I lived out of vehicles and hotel rooms. F@ck the “poor”excuse, it’s weak. I never did meth, heroin, was a drunk, rob, rip off, cheat, have sex with my cousin, get Mt. Dew mouth, knock girls up, get face tattoos, join gangs or generally just do anything negative. Stop blaming the system. People need to take responsibility for their own actions.

  • What a handsome guy! Perfect for all those meth-head girls from Hoopa to Cedarville!

  • His Facebook, another one educated by the school of Grand Theft Auto V. No more Playstation for you.

  • Prime example of hupa Indians ,and Mexican cartel hell spawn .

  • This guy is an excellent argument for keeping abortion legal.

  • A rapist, a gangster and a murderer are in the same car…
