    Are you kidding me with your stupidity? Remove this immediately. … there’s nothing just to substantiated any burglaries occurred … an eyewitness on the scene can corroborate that that my son’s hands were in the air when deputies shot him in the back and paralyzed him take down that photograph and retract your story immediately before my lawyer contacts you thank you. God save you you uninformed heartless moron.
