    When I was a kid, we said a LOT of stupid things. It didn’t mean that we were going to follow through with outrageous threats. The difference between then and now is that there is nobody guiding these kids. Nobody is showing them what is acceptable, and what isn’t. There are NO healthy “heroes” or role models, anymore. The only thing that kids seem to aspire to in this day and age is infamy.

    You need to send a strong message to this moron and anyone thinking of copying this POS, that their ass will be grass and the law will be the lawnmower!
