Do you remember a while back we had the HS Lax player upstate that killed his girlfriend...we tried continuously to tell a fellow Lax player the dangers of Lax, he steadfastly refuted every point we made....ah, good times.

if it's true that this guy was just a Fat italian and not, in fact a two-time all american lax player, wouldn't he name his coin company goodfellas coins and not all american coins? Ponderous

Russel Barnes lives at 85 Baylawn in copaigue. He has 2 beautiful cars one being a Yellow Mustang that he spends thousands of dollars beefing it up. He also has a crack addict Girlfriend Jeanie who lives at the end of Baylawn in which he spends a ton of money on. Jeanie drives a bus for challenge children and brings her brothers urine to work to pass the drug tests. The apartment he rents is from The owner of South Side Fence, TROY Which in turn shares his Drugs and shares his Girlfriend, There all corrupt. I live across the street from them and By the way Russel Barnes aka Rusty still has his vehicles that he purchased with the monies he ripped off from the elderly. And he was in the Navy. Whata shame.

All of these brothers and their "employees" lived like fat rats. Throwing their money all over like it was never gonna and. Fancy cars, big houses, expensive trips, imported cigars, Rolex watches, you name it, they spent money on it. No charity work, no donations, no help for those who needed it, they even hid the money from the mother's of their children so that they were unable to collect the proper child support. Nice guys overall wouldn't you say?? Couldn't have happened to a better group of guys!!!! I dont say men because they aren't good enough for that title. What goes around comes around and usually in a bigger way. I hope that they all get what they deserve, but knowing our judicial system as it is I am sure they will walk and get to spend the rest of the money that they have stashed somewhere!!!

Truth and Mastic, NY,
I'd be interested in knowing more about how this case turns out.If I could keep in touch with one of you via e-mail, I'd appreciate it. I live in Iowa. So, it's difficult to keep posted from such a distance. Thanks. fox@fbcom.net
