    Cargill looks like your typical trailer trash thief. He’s been on here at least once for something along the same lines. Guess you can’t fix stupid.

    But the black kid that only stole 2 bottles of some cough syrup will serve more time than all three combined. And some people still don’t see what’s wrong with this country. Some people make mistakes. How does it feel up there on your moral high horse?
