    I have a brother that played this bullsh*t with the cops. He did prison time now and he is a REAL as*hole. I say to the police, start killing these pieces of sh*t and keep us safe.

      I have a sibling the same way. I have always said the world will be a better place when shes not in it, for everyone. Its hard to come to this understanding, but it is honest. I understand.

      Six thumbs down because you dare to tell the truth! At least you’re not like the majority of the POS’s in the world who will stick up for the worst persons ever just because they’re married, or boy/girlfriend, kin, etc…what does this say about his responsibility to his daughter? So sick of people sticking up for dirt-bags just because they’re kin! It’s not WHO’s doing what it’s WHAT whose doing!!

      Someone might start to be a ass but killing them isn’t the answer. You have to try to help them change. And this is coming from a 13 year old
