they,the cops, are nothing but the stink on the soles of the real troubled power hungry shit heads running the city and county.sending who they want or not to prison.just like with the rest of the worlds events they will jack with the wrong one some day and their untouchable protected little lifes will be torn apart the very same way ours were,breaking family's apart over small crimes while the high and mighty get the royal treatment.who ever you are or think you may be your debt must be paid in full at some point in life or death.and just in case anyone may think that is a threat of sorts be clearly advise it's only my belief and no intent to harm anyone in any way.karma is a m.f.and it will catch up with you in the end.that's a promise!!!so remember all that evil shit you do and think you get away with it,just keep on keeping on baby.your day will come to answer for all the bad shit you do.

the justice system is a poor mans prison.some people do belong in jail for their crimes they have committed.and some people should never have been put in jail to start with.but when some one in law enforcement who works for the public breaks the law willingly and knowingly commits a crime they should be made an example of for others to witness.if we, as honest american's ,send this message out to our fellow american's,our children,what are we telling them!!!!there has been no justice served here today,we are a shameful nation,no pride,no sense of respect of the law that was created to protect us from crime.if the higher court ever needed to step up and do the right thing now is that time.
he must have something known on judge?hum!

Sentenced to probation for the charge of "Stealing" while the other numerous charges of "Forgery" mysteriously disappears.

Hmmm, and no one is supposed to notice that the lesser charge was the only one to "stick"

If the two had committed "unarmed robbery," I wonder if they would have received the same sentence??

will they be even more untouchable now that they got away with their crime,some of us citizens are honest and will not put up with crooked law enforcement from some paid-off judge,or the good ole buddy system.just remember you dirty ass cops and lawyers and judges will have to answer for your crimes some day.i just hope that no one who is innocent in your family gets caught up in the middle of all your sins.again this is not a threat to you crooks,it's only the sound of shit hitting the fan,repent now and change your evil ways.or face your sentence like every one else you had no mercy on.not all law are crooks but saddly it won't really matter when rebellion fights back at the crooked cops and laws they force on the poor and middle-class people.question is,are you ready to find out?or will you change and be fair to all.
