"Dose not matter what you or others say!"


And it DOES not matter what YOU say either !
Who the fuck do you think you are ? You don't know shit from apple butter, but you are qualified to tell us and the cop how we should feel. You spell on a third grader's level and think we are going to give the first bit of credence (look it up, asswipe) to anything you spew out of your ignorant ass ? You shouldn't be allowed to vote or for that matter, walk among us.
I guess people like YOU and joan have nothing better to do than pump yourselves into such a drugged up and/or drunken frenzy that you feel a need to get on here and remove all doubt that you are mentally qualified to attack another's, split second, life altering, decision, and then tell us we are the sick bunch. I wish your parents had made a different life altering decision, prior to your birth. People like you should be the poster children for abortion ! I feel better now.

Topix also raises awareness about treating mental illnesses too.You're making me really aware right now.As for humans of any damned mental capability or incapability ...do not threaten an armed individual with a weapon, whether it be a Officer of the law or an Armed citizen. Unfortunate? Yes, a very bad situation to experience.It doesn't help the cause by posting nasty remarks.

LMFAO!!! Get em buddy! I love to see Earl get his ass chapped and you just busted him quite damned well. Forget old clawd, he's nothing more than one huge *sucker*, that's why Earl keeps him around. Don't worry, they never leave this place, expect more stupidity and vitriol. Not a damned thing you can't handle, keep up the good work!

To the resident spell checker on this thread, fuck you, too!
