YOUR ARE OBVIOUSLY NOT A MAN WITH MUCH SENSE, NOR ARE YOU A VENDOR. THE MAN PROBABLY IS IN NEED OF MUCH MONEY TO GO TO THE SWAP SHOP ON A SATURDAY, AS THAT DAY USUALLY SUCKS. BUT IF ONE ENTERS BEFORE 5:30AM ONE SAVES 10 DOLLARS. IT COST $5 INSTEAD OF $15. TO GET A GOOD SPOT THE EARLIER YOU GET TO LINE THE EARLIER YOU GET YOUR SPOT TO START SELLING. 8 AM IS ALREADY LATE BY SWAP SHOP STANDARDS. ONE SEES VANS THAT BRAKE DOWN IN LINE TO GET IN TO THE SWAP SHOP. THE VANS ARE OLD, OH AND THE PEOLE WHO GO TO THE SWAP SHOP TO BUY ARE GIANT YERKS, NOT WILLING TO PAY A ALREADY DISCOUNTED AND LOW PRICE, THEY WANT ALL FOR VIRTUALLY FREE.
THE REAL SHAME HERE IS THAT A MAN WAS KILLED BY A CAR, A SPEEDING CAR DRIVEN BY A DRUNK DRIVER.
county!!!
state!!!
police!!!!!! STOP THESE CRIMINALS!!!
YES THEY BUY A LOT OF BEER AND GIVE YOU A LOT OF TAXES.. BUT PEOPLE DIE IN STUPID TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS.

Uh, yeah, because suspending his license earlier was obviously very effective.

At least it wasn't another outlaw biker runover several times and decapitated. How many times in a month can that happen?
