  1. Well there you have it,see that first picture with the trigger finger? I mean a young man like you,you’re not handicapped (as far as I know),you have a brain like everyone else but it seems instead of using your brain for the betterment of life,you rather use it to take life.

    Young men & women don’t let the community you were born or raised it dictate who you become as an individual.Many young people growing up tend to feel like “oh I From this place so I supposed to have a screw face or act some type of way”.The planet is huge,make something of yourself & try to escape from this crab in a barrel mentality.


    • That was no crab in any barrel. That was most likely born with a criminal mind. The village told him to do that. That one's brain bucket just acted out what was going on inside of it. The war waged by idiots on other idiots, continues. It is still a very good time to be in the undertaker business. Me, if I had the money, I would invest in opening another one. "Jobs, jobs, jobs".
