    He is just 16 and he is wanted on 3 charges, there is warrant out for his arrest and he was caught in a stolen truck. I guess where his family comes from it is OK to steal what you want instead of working for it. I will assume that is what they taught him.

    Another Day another Illegal Criminal Caught Stealing a Truck, Driving with no Drivers license & probably got other arrest Warrants outstanding as well, just another Thug that crossed the Mexican Border probably with about 50 other family members that are just as much a Criminal as he is, so as I’m said before, get ready & keep your guns close at hand because you will have to use them sooner then later to protect Family & Possessions….

      You know, I had three white friends who did the same exact thing. Please tell me how race makes a difference in this?

      You’re just one sorry racist person. Nothing makes you better than anyone else. You’re ignorant and your opinion is irrelevant.

      Aha. Ain’t ain’t you a piece of shit. He didn’t do anything to harm any family or your family members. People like you make me laugh. Just because he is Mexican don’t mean he crossed the boarder. Ignorant people like you is the kind that makes everybody laugh obviously you need more education to know your facts, honey.

      Not every “Hispanic” is illegal just letting you know. You might want to go back to school and educate yourself with the history you obviously never learned. I’ve heard about every other race doing the same thing, so take your racism elsewhere!

    He is only 16 and he has a warrant out for his arrest with 3 charges and then he is caught with a truck he stole. I guess this is what his parents taught him to do. If you want it, take it. As far as he is concerned laws are not for him.
