    Don’t worry folks, with our great Judicial System at work, this thug will be out in no time, probably by tonight….why even bother to arrest these people anyway, I mean he’s been arrested more then 50 times & out on the street with a gun, oh well so what else is new!!

    Good riddance….I guess this time is just #51 and he will be out causing more problems tomorrow night! Good work Greensboro, this judicial system is definitely there to protect and serve the criminals, not the innocent folks!

    Somebody had this fellow, dropped him on the welfare and the streets, and he grew up to be a thug. No shocker, the AA community needs to promote education and responsibility.

      Don’t judge a family by what one person does. I actually went to school with Mario from Alamance elementary & up. He grew up in church raised by a good family, no welfare or projects. Grew up out in Lynwood Lakes, went to Southeast Guilford. Some people just get involved in things/peer pressure an start going down from there. You never know what someone comes from just because someone does a lot of bad, doesn’t mean they grew up thug life on welfare! I don’t agree with the life he chose, but God will be his ultimate judge.

    Has he been arrested on these charges… it looks like the warrants have not been served. While he does have a really long arrest record, his list of convictions is short. He has been charged with pretty serious crimes before but most have been dismissed. In NC, a person gets sentenced based on a point system called “Structured Sentencing”. With dismissals, a person gets no points.

    What? Arrested 50 times in 17 years. That is an average of 3 times a year. Why is he still walking free? Do they not have habitual offender laws down here? If not they need them, now.


    This POS has proven beyond any shadow of a doubt, that he is worthless as a human being and worthless to society. Nothing more than an oxygen thief. Either lock him away for the rest of his natural life and throw away the key or dig a deep hole, double tap him behind the ear with a large and powerful weapon, then cover him up,be cause worms gotta eat too.
