    Humans ain’t sick and tired of embarrassing both their names and family last names? Humans ain’t tried see the only people wins lawyers and the only places that win are prison and graveyards. Humans can’t see that it’s just doesn’t worth it? Humans can’t understand that we can live within our means or work harder for what we want/need? I know I’m not the only human who’s sick of reading about other humans involved with unnecessary things. Come on my humans; Wize up!

    This is a perfect example of why parents should not spoil children, especially grown @#$ rotten ones. Stop bailing them out of trouble because they will mess with the wrong person and instead of bailing you will be burying.

    All this trouble with one leg, I won't like it if this dude had 2 good legs. These two brother swear they are above the law but the right day will come. Set ah louse.
