      Jethro we know its you, you just can’t go any length of time without trying to get FaithC’s attention. Have some respect for yourself son, stop showing everyone how sorry you are.

    with all the current charges on this kid i can promise you he is a repeat offender. Also, the firearm is more than likely stolen.

    I ain’t sorry for this kid at all. Do the crime, do the time. He decided to get a career in being a criminal and well he’ll reap what he sows. Also, inmates in jail/prison will get word of this crime and take care of him from there.
