Yeah but the thing is Haskel does not have any arms so there's no way he was stealing anything. Retard cops have their heads up thier ass around here, thats the problem; they want to catch someone so desperatly they are willing to blame anyone.

Didn't stealing cause him to loose his arms in the first place ? I heard he was their look out while the rest steal the phone line . So if this is true hope they all get some hard time for this !

That's the problem around here; people think they know everything. If they hear the sky is fallng they believe it. If you do not see it first hand you should keep your mouth shut. That's my opinion.

But when the newspaper tells exactly what happened don't assume it is wrong. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck....then its a duck.

That shows how dumb you are, the newspaper editors can put what they want. Tell me you don't believe everything you read in a newspaper? I feel sorry for you if you do.

When I know someone who spoke to the lawyers of one of the suspects and they have the evidence the police have and its not what the newspaper has printed well I think I will take the lawyers evidence over the newspaper.

By the way ever hear "innocent until PROVEN guilty" obviously no one on here has...

I don't believe everything i read or see. And I definitely don't believe a pill head that is trying to stick up for lying, thieving, no count men that would steal copper from the power lines leaving plenty of people out of power. Sick people, old people, and families that abide by the law. It's not fair that they should have to do without while the losers are going around stealing for a snort up their nose or for some whore to sleep with them for that pill. If i caught someone in my area doing it i wouldn't call the police i would call the undertaker. Trash is all they are. Why not get a job to support their drug habits. Everybody knows who is doing it and still doing it. Their are others involved and if people would quit aiding and abetting to the shit, it would happen less.

If they had any thing to do with all the stealing , then they will get what they deserve in time . So many people have to suffer so others can get that next fix . And as for the ones who take matters into their own hands I am sure the law with be happy to have some help on all the stupidness ! And for you to call someone mental and dumb , what does that say for anyone who takes up for dope headed thieves ? Sorry but nobody is going to feel sorry for them or care anything about them or anyone who upholds people in such ! Oh and word is they got some more for this same crap ! Funny thing is since this came out , no more missing phone lines ! People aren't going to lie on people for something they want stopped ! That wouldn't stop the problem if they get the wrong ones !

No, I am not a bad ass. I am just tired of those who are lazy and choose to do drugs stealing from others. Its a shame! And as for dumb, well I might be, but at least I am not a pitiful excuse for a human being. I do not stand up for thieves and drug addicts. You obviously are one of the two or both, or maybe you are having sex with one of the guilty. I don't know nor do I care how articulate you are or how well versed you think you are in the English language, if you are using it to defend those who are wrong, you i am afraid are the DUMB ASS. Oh by the way, oh intelligent one, its BECAUSE, not becuase. LOL. Now that's funny!

I think your entire post is funny. But you could never be as funny as John Doe who drives to Iaeger to shop to keep from using the Friendly Mart. Panther is full of mental giants.

I cant say I blame him the prices are to high and the owners dont seem friendly at all. Iaeger is only about 8 miles from panther he would save on buying gas alone and shop at the dollar store. I do that too.
