    • Really?

      Are you serious with that accusation? Where in the article does it say that $3 was all that he had to his name? What if that’s all he had in his pocket? Are you maybe a little jealous that you haven’t received a “pity fund”? Punk.

      Perhaps, you know about this personally? Maybe the Police should look you up. Is your Sin robbery and assault?

  • Really?

    Sinner, I believe that the avoiding to answer any of the above questions is “typical democratic/ liberal” tactic. So, can you answer any of those questions? Are you also trying to pin point my political party by using name calling to resolve a difference of opinion? If you must know I am a die hard conservative who just happens to dislike people like you that make us stories about someone they don’t know. Have a better day!
