    Yes, he was a good boy caught in an unfortunate situation. He was in the process of turning his life around and was going to use the car to go to church.

    Seven times? It sure took him a long time to fall. All's well that ends well.

    I would prefer that all "carjackers" get this reward.

    Agree. The perp isn't around to talk about it! :whistling:
     
  8. From the headline, I thought that University of California cops upgraded from mace/pepper spray to guns!

    Darn, but that was a bit of a downer.

    That actually sounds like a 1911 issue. 9mm would probably have been an 18 shot kinda thing...

    Why can't I once read a story that the mother apologizes for raising a worthless son?

    Weapons charges are now considered 'nickel and dime stuff'?


    Stop the planet...i want off.
     

  18. Yea, but he was trying to turn his life around....:whistling:

    Sounds like he was on a roll in that short span of two years when he became an adult. Wonder how his juvenile record looks like? Bet we all know the answer to that.
