    ya’ll are so hateful to one another. didn’t your parents teach you that if you don’t have anything nice to say to keep your mouth shut?? it’s better to keep your mouth closed & let ppl wonder if you are a fool, than to open it & remove all doubt.

  • FYI

    ummmmm i love the fact that when he was in high point the bleeding hearts wanted him to stay in school…. so they denied his long term suspensions and let him come back…… he and his family complained on the school….. turns out the school was right and he needed to go away hahahahaha-
