    What a POS animal.
    Great news is they caught this garbage and tool him off the street.
    Bad news is my taxes have to pay to keep him in jail.
    I could think of alot of better ways to spend my tax dollars.
    How about we just castrate and cut off these sick fxxks fingers, corporal punishment goes along way.
