  • Shame on You, idiotic police. You couldn’t take a flue. Stupid shits. I just recently geared a dick saying he would call police and that 15 year old was pronounced by him. Yesterday evening. He is mean as is and wikis. So are his family members, son and daughter. They supposedly own care houses that do not belong to them. They are all comfortably placed in these houses and so are their friends. Good luck, idiots.
