How old are you? You are either a 9 year old child or you need to be in school. You have nothing but run on sentences and misspelled words.
Okay-now for the truth! Who cares about the whole story? An innocent child was shot and killed because of a stupid gang member! If this idiot wasn't running the streets with a shot gun, nothing like this would have happened. He made a bad choice for which he must now face the consequences! Don't people know that guns kill?? This sur-13 gang is a bad bunch that all need to be arrested and put behind bars!!! I am glad he's locked up! he is right where he belongs!!

There you go with your grammar again. I'm sure glad you weren't a teacher in my kids schools.

By the way, guns don't kill. People do!! I am getting a clearer picture on why you moved to the mountains now.
You needed to be with more like your own.
DOH!!

We are judging Orlando Valenzuela because he murdered an innocent nine year old child. I'm proud of the job Manatee County did in finding & convicting this gangbanger. We are tired of these senseless killings in our communities. I regret that our tax money will be used to feed & house his sorry butt for many years in prison...not to mention the money we have had to pay already for his defense & will pay much more in the future for appeals, another trial, etc. If we are lucky he will be killed while incarcerated.

Very good post!! I think Manatee County did a great job handling it too.
I saw on the news the day of the arraignment the SWAT team on the roof of the Court house and at other various places watching out for gang members.
I was rather impressed and it made me proud to know where I live is being protected.

I'm going to type this real S-L-O-W so maybe you can understand it...READY? Orlando Valenzuela is a murderer. He is a nasty, no good, useless, low-life gang member. We do not want him or his kind in our society. You, Miss Chiquita Banana can defend him all you want but it is not going to do any good...I'm glad his sorry butt is locked away so he doesn't have the opportunity to breed
with you or someone like you. You have a lot of nerve trying to play the race card in this. Stacey Williams was nine years old & yes he was black...but the child's color doesn't matter, he was just a kid out playing & I would feel the same way whether he was black, white, hispanic or asian. A CHILD was shot in the back in cold blood. Don't you have something important to do...like shave your eyebrows before your appointment at the welfare office?
Or, take a bath before you go to the health department for your STD test?
Know what SUR-13 stands for in prison?

Get this straight and get it straight NOW!!
I've never been happier than I am right now living in wonderful Bradenton, Florida!!

I'm sure you don't know my kids. My daughter is 29 and my son is 26. You think you're talking to some uneducated lady but you're the one who needs educating.
My adult children don't speak the way you do. They were raised better than that!
You can believe all of your home schooling stories and book writing stories you want.
I can read and I wouldn't read anything you've written.

You quoted me as saying "low life Mexicans"?
I never said that, those are your words you loony bin!!
Yes I am a card. I am the Queen of hearts!!

I like the way she gets insisting that I am fat.
You're right though, I don't read comic books but I do read books by REAL authors and none of them are hillbillies.
