    This poor soul needs to be released from jail, and given a new car and nice apartment and a fair income from the state. He was misunderstood and maligned from an early age driving him to crime.

    "Black Lives Matter" don't ya know.

    Umm james it is a national problem, not just a local one. Their is a lot of despair in this country formerly known as America. I can tell you the people Obama was suposed to help and who voted for him, are being hurt the worse in this current mess. But, I hav eto laugh, until the end of 2015, my stock portolio was doing exceptional and it is still up, from the beginning of Obama's presidency, (imperialcy).
