    Ahh! the criminal life. So rewarding, isn't gang membership wonderful? The only problem for the Liberals is how they will blame the Conservatives. Because of course, someone else must be responsible, the people involved must be pawns of some evil Republican conspiracy to demonize a minority group and not the direct result of the bad choices the people made for themselves. My father grew up with no running water, no electricity and he did not turn out to be a gang banging waste of skin. There goes your poverty based excuse for criminal activity.

    No surprise here either. Hall's mother obviously used the "scrabble" method of baby naming. She must be so proud of him.
