    They post any of my comments yesterday. I guess they didn't want to hear the truth. Like I said, not random. http://www.fayobserver.com/articles/2012/09/25/1206510?sac=fo.local

    There seems to be only one way to stop these creeps. We will all have to have a shot gun sitting by our side in each room of the house. Seem satan has taken over a great number of people. Real people don't act like this.

    We had a guy at work that had a home invasion on sun. He forgot to lock his door two guys came in with guns asking for drugs. When they couldn't find any they took them to the ATM to take money out and one of the guys got mad and said lets kill them. But by the grace of god the other guy said I am not going down for murder.
