if the cat were fat, lazy, unemployed, laid around and popped out a bunch of kittens and black, then it would be qualified for welfare.(joking of course)

2 MURDERS, 3 ROBBERIES, AND ONE FEDERAL LAWSUIT AGAINST THE POLICE.

GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, NOT GUILTY AND NOT GUILTY.

THE TWO NOT GUILTYs should not even have been in a court of law.

Some idiot tried to sue RPD for entering his dwelling and kicking his hiney. He should have opened the door. THEY HAD LEGAL SEARCH WARRENTS. And although the police were hot heads (2 of them) and had a rep for that. THE MAN CAUSED HIS OWN INJURIES BY NOT OPENING THE DOOR FOR THE POLICE WITH SEARCH AND SEIZURE WARRANTS.

The not guilty on robbery was a white guy who was in jail at the time of the robbery.

You are not joking. That's how you feel. Stop suppressing your freedom to express. It's healthier. And, it's ok. Are you going to get labeled a racist by saying that. You are already one, and it's obvious.

remember what I said: When ever white people want to say racist stuff and feel uncomfortable, the first thing that comes out is the old racist battle cry hymal: I WAS JUST JOKING! SEE, I TOLD YOU.

I LOVE THIS STORY - it is so funny. The family should absolutely show up with the cat. I wish there was a picture of Sal included in this story. I love their reason for disqualification: doesn't speak English.....too funny.
