The scarey part of it all is if anybody knew or cared to hear the whole story, you better hope you have never been questioned for a crime and some else knows because you make that person mad you yourself may end up on trial. This town has had it out for him for years. i noticed in the papers they followed the trials very close but then come verdict time what did the paper give the NOT GUILTY VERDICT not front page! IMAGINE that

hey there captain you have'nt a clue what you are talking about. he's not even close to a Walwer. he works takes care of his kids and doesnt smoke crack and hang out in the bars. so maybe before you talk about someone you need to have a clue on what or who you are talking about. stick with what you know cause you know nothing about this.

Well how popular I've become. Funny how you feel all alone yet there is always someone who is thinking about you and has an open opinion about who they think you are, were, or will become. Thanks! hey now Morocco, In, and concerned Chicago, Il. Everyone makes bad choices at some time in their lives My Love, My Heart, My Everything is entitled to forgiveness for making such a bad decision. It doesn't make one a bad person just a youthful bad choice repairable with loyalty, honesty, love and apologetic remorse for that bad decision. Point being no reason bringing pre 2003 skeletons out of the closet you know you and so do they, I know what you know and so do you. Judgement is at his right hand not our fingertips. Live your life and not ours. Move on everyone.
