        while you sitting trying to be funny my family relocated because of a killing in our family. It is not easy running from the land of your birth. There is hardly any results in vicious crimes. Who feels it knows it

      These are the same petty issues that leads to the bigger problem. It is all about respect and obeying the law. The laws were not written by the police. They only enforce it and once you disrespect the law, it shows you have no respect for yourself or the system. Just do what is right and we will all be good.
