    I knew you lived in Johnston county from the 1st post. While you are there with your hoody on with the eyes cut out, take some of the moonshine and save it for the sherrif, that lets you make it and sell it. You will get a free lawyer too, but then again, realizing your race, you will never be stopped, surely not prosecuted, and never convicted. One day those like you will realize the meaning of profiling, but then again, just listen to yourself or read your own words. Don't toot the horn, I won't hear you that far behind me.:-)

    But you would look at me, and judge me, while not knowing I could tell you where to dress that moped up better, and some nice bike roads to air that thang out. Suzuki M109R, surprise!!!! Rider since 2002.

    Im impressed that you know what a v-twin is,you aint so half bad after all.

    Yes, the street crooks are taking all the hard knocks, but you will continue to not see the wrongs of the top of the crime chain, until it comes knocking on your door, or knocking down your door. Ride off in the sunset on your tri-cycle, and never be heard from again. Crime is crime, but money regulates the conviction and avoids the prosecution.

    OH yeah V-Twin, take that Harley or whatever moped you are driving, and get some wind thru your ears and clear out that hate. Their Escalade for your big, dirty trucks with the gun rack in the back. Are your saddle bags on that moped as full of it as you seem to be?

  • gmuny33 Nov 4, 4:17 p.m.

    Yeah V-Twin, they are entitled, because the other group is behind the corruption of ABC boards, infiltration of the drugs they are accused of selling, and the guns they use during the sell of those same drugs or any other crime. When you're at the top of the crime chain, you send those in the bottom to jail while you continue to flourish and damage our young. What group is to blame?
