    90.9% of the scooter riders are heartless criminals. Sad to see people like Mr. Adams trying to prove different.

    Check his system see if he was high because it’s one thing to be high, another to think you’re above the law and this is what happens when you mix those two together.

    These police are compassionate because I know in the years gone by he would have gotten a good wolfing in the police station. That's why we need to get white policemen from England like those Scotland Yards who would show no mercy for them.
