    This is what happens when you allow parents to tell their children that they could do whatever they want and when parents do not raise their kids n a responsible manner.

    No telling what that guy was planning. All I can say is his Elevator don't go to the top floor. Anyone knows, you don't take a gun anywhere near a court house unless you are an officer of the law or a court officer. Hope he was not planning to harm someone.

    Who knows what he was planning. Hope he was not planning to hurt someone or commit suicide by cop. No sane person is going to go to a courthouse strapped unless you are law enforcement.

    Incredulous that they don't lock up this psychopath and throw away the key. He is crazy and it's surprising that he hasn't used a gun on anyone yet. How many in Cane Garden Bay have been threatened by Carlos over the years? Why did he have a gun with him in a heavily policed area? Because he is psychotic and believes he is above the law.Everyone knows it including his family.

Dude, if someone know you have a gun near a court house they are going to rat you out. Well, if a rat squeal on him that day the rat deserve a block of cheddar for his reward.
