  • This reply is for Nick the family friend. If you go back and read the original report under reply you will see my reply under Marie. Just to let you know this is just a shame how ignorant people deal with or judge others that suffer from a mental disability. Instead of people educating themself on or about a mental disability they are quick to draw and say negative responses until the situation ends up in their own backyard. If people really don’t know the whole story then I suggest they keep their mouth shut. Because the ignorant comments make you look just as bad and even worse then the whole situation itself. This is the stigma that people have to deal with on a daily basis that suffer from mental illness. Remember that we didn’t choose the illness like ppl choosing to do drugs and alcohol the illness chose us, I suggest that some people please edu yourself about a mental disability before jumping on the bandwagon and trying to make hurtful and or bullied comments.

  • Exempt from the tax rolls, yep, law enforcement, or former law enforcement officer. If and when they have a record, that law should exempt them.
    Make him pay for all of the man-hours and s*** because he sure wasted a lot of tax dollars.
    Hope he was drug tested.
    Loser
