  1. Lock him up and throw the keys out I promise not a single person will miss the dirt bag. They roll in numbers eh? Bunch of tough guys. Rolling in numbers with masks on at the Midtown Inn. Booooys can I have your autographs please?!?!?!

  2. 10-90-100. Again.

    Kudos to the investigators who flushed this rat out of it’s hole.

    We gotta bring back the chair and start frying these lowlife creeps.

  3. What the police need to do when arresting this people is cuff them and take them down the fire escape. People trip and fall ALL THE TIME! Let them fall down 5 stories of stair because once they get to court there will basically zero punishment. So why not get a little satisfaction from your job? Also while loading them in the car people bump their head off the top door frame all the time…even if it is 5-6 times..accidents do happen. Again, good job to our policemen and woman!

    1. Ya sure. Alvin Fiddler ever got ahold of that he would really be screaming racism. But something definitely has to stop these roaming gangs be it police or old time vigilante justice

  4. Here you go People. The maximum sentence for aggravated assault causing physical harm, maiming etc., carries a maximum of 14years imprisonments. This was premeditated and should carry the max penalty. I’m sure after pulling 10+ years in a penitentiary will make them much better citizens…yeah right! I agree with the fire escape idea or the ‘he slipped off the roof trying to escape’. Exponentially speaking, at the rate things are going, they’ll all kill themselves or each other off to the point of extinction. May take another 200years but so be it!

    1. 200 years is far too long. Too bad there wasn’t a way to speed up the process?

      Who knows? That idea might be the hidden agenda with our gutless justice system. Keep letting the pricks out to kill each other off.

      Same with the druggers. Flood the streets with potentially deadly drugs and let nature take it’s course.

      Somebody better let the cops know that they’re wasting their time dealing with this scum..

  5. All this shit taking place is NOT going to stop. It will only get worse. We have way too many brainwashed do goody sympathizers in this country as well as the media who suck up the blame game and cant see a con job when it is hitting them right in their face. On top of that are the useless fucking politicians who lack the courage and integrity to stand up and say enough is enough. They refuse to stand up because they will NOT risk their cushy pensions and retirement packages by challenging any of the myths and lies circulating all over this country. Those gutless politicians dont mind being lead around by the nose as long as their futures stay secure. Not one single one of them has the fortitude to put an end to the biggest scam job in world history. Just so you know, you aint seen nothing yet and you can take it to the bank that the worst is yet to come.

  6. Why all the violent thoughts? We are all human and life will never be perfect. Focus on yourself and heal the violence in your own mind.
