So...someone explain to me why we're allowing this kid who hangs out with thieves and drug addicts to stay here? He's a disturbed person that we don't need. Is he also doing a job an american wouldn't do?

Why on earth would we give this kid a second chance? as if we dont already have enough of our own screwed up kids who's mommy and daddy use ADD as an excuse for their idiocy? he did'nt know the play station was stolen? yeah right..........he was going to sell his brass knuckles? again, yeah right (where did he get them to begin with). When will our Government roll up the red carpet and say "enough is enough"? how much more baggage from every other country are we expected to carry?

Give him 2 months. Why did this kid have brass knuckles to begin with? Possession of them is a Felony in some states. Revoke his residency and send him back to the Brits.

Bi Polar depression is an incurable mental disorder, (chemical imbalance). It can only be controlled with appropriate medication, which, according to this kid's father, the boy refuses to take. He will do stupid things the rest of his life, if he's not treated. Authorities should mandate hospitalization and medication as long as he's in the country. If not, his dad needs to go back to Britain or South Africa with him.

So he will behave during 5 years, and when he becomes citizen he can go back to his business. WHAT A JOKE.

Lil jeff is my homeboy. I've known him for about 7 years now and he's a really good person. These comments are retarded and are for people who have nothing better to do then to judge people they know nothing about.
