    Good for the officers in charging this brainless man. What was he teaching his child? How to be a criminal? How sad is that.

    I love this sarcasm. Seriously, a lot of you are funny. This guy needs to be put away though. I'll add my sarcasm by saying that he's a model father and a victim of circumstance.

    The problem here is that this fella had to goto a neighborhood school. If he had been bused, then he would have had a better education. /sarcasm
