What this reporter failed to research was that this car belonged to Mr. Van Vliet's grandmother and he stole it as he stole seven other cars since September 08 and also lost them through "Rock Rentals" . He also stole her jewelry, cash, cel phones, drivers license, social security card and credit cards. He's been doing this for over 15 years. I know, I a family member. His excuse "granny" is that I'm an addict, oh yeah, I'll go to rehab..... but never stays.... He prefers the streets. So before you judge and comment, know the facts. Does being an addict excuse destroying your grandmother and the rest of the family?

No he doesn't deserve to lose it. Just because he has a crack addiction doesn't give the dealer a right to extort him nor keep his car. Put his addiction to the side, what if you rented out something of yours for money or whatever it is you needed in return for renting out your own car. Yeah it's illegal to do crack, yeah it's foolish to rent out your car for crack but the bottom line is that as long as he has the title to it, it's his.
He stole the car from his grandmother so no it wasn't his to rent out. See my last post. from a family member

<quoted text>Living in Weston has nothing to do with it. Did they recover any drugs from him? NO. Did they witness him in possession of any drugs? NO. Did they charge Keenan Sneed with possession with intent to sell? NO. Why because they didn't recover any nor witness the transaction. Stop playing the martyr because Sneed is from Bridgeport. He is a menace to all the hard working people of this city and I am glad he got arrested. Good job SET.
Yeah and you should see Mr. Van Vliet's 20 year criminal record, know your facts before you become the judge,

I know Sneed's record very well and he got what he deserved. As for your family member he sounds like a bum too but you still can't lock him up without evidence. So I do know the facts and your family member's crappy record doesn't play into this case.

If your parents had been dirty monkeys you still would have turned out more intelligent than you are as a result of the two pieces of work that conceived YOU. You are already enslaved by your ignorance.
