      You are the idiot, talking just like a low life street thug. With three sir names, you probably don’t know who your daddy is.

        I know who my daddy is and since “has gas” and “drunk on whiskey” are so happy an innocent teenager is dead and then call him a thug when even the cops admit it was a terrible mistake, I don’t hope it happens to them, I hope it happens to their kid.
