Blah, blah, blah. He ripped people off, he has caused problems for banks. He has cost the taxpayers who knows how many thousands of dollars with his alleged addiction.Mike is my friend too. I don't think what he has done is right by any means but I am a true person and wouldn't ever turn my back on a friend! I agree he has a problem. People are entitled to there own opinions. I respect nothing mike has done in terms of the money he's made,as I'm most don't. However, as someone who cares for him I would hope that people can show some respect in what they say at this time being that he does have a problem, a family and a support group who only has hope in there hearts for him to get better and not make the same mistakes. These comments will go unread by mike himself I can assure you of that. The people who will be effected by our "entitled opinions" are the innocent friends and family who are sad for the mistakes he has made. Although mike has hurt people, when someone is addicted to something and has a genuine problem it makes the dynamic of what is happening somewhat different for those who care about him. I know its hard to have empathy for someone whom you don't respect and as I said your entitled but please try to be respectfull of the family members who are reading this and have done nothing wrong to any of you. Thankfully we have the press to report half the truth to all of you, making it so easy to hate people we hardly know! Calling his girlfriend a skank is a pathetic low blow! Do you laugh in the face of all sad people or just the ones you have been jelous of? I said my peace so comment back all you want. Mike has friends and so does Stacey whether you all like it or not!
He's nothing more than a crook, just like Kwame. If you're such a good friend, why didn't you turn him in to the authorities to get him help?
