    if his sedan was made of gold, why was he robbing people?

  • affirmativediversity Aug 2, 2010

    Let's see he's 24 years old AND has a criminal record dating back to 2004...hmmmmm...6 years subtracted from 24 years equals 18...wonder what his juvenile record looks like???

    Maybe its time to start thinking about bringing those juvenile records forward is after reaching 18 years old a person just keeps getting in trouble!!!!

    It would take more than that to get these people to stop, because some are born to be trouble, no disrespect to anyone. But they are going to have to do more, & what makes me mad is they sit there & say they are crazy to get out of trouble. They don't know what crazy is, that guy that done all that stuff wrong with the stocks in NY that is in Butner, he knows what it is now.

    He sure does sound violent to me. I hope that there wasn't no one hurt, besides him.

    yea that repeat offender will be in the news next week with the same charges. if the state would just keep these repeat offenders in jail and not let them out on bond. crime would drop by 50%.

    Did they recover the gold sedan? That thing ought to be worth a fortune.
