  1. What a bunch of losers. Too stupid to carry out the simplest task. How hard is it to follow the speed limit? The three stooges of crime.

    Can’t help but wonder what the f–k went wrong with society. So many of our youth are useless, incompetent low life slugs. Too lazy and stupid to be employable and too stupid to be criminals. Just another generation of lifelong welfare scammers and panhandlers in the making.

    We’re going to need more and bigger jails.

    1. Wow .honestly u sound just has smart as them . The vehicle was stolen ok they have scanner now .to scan your license plate and if the ppl reported it stolen .it wouldn’t matter if the were speeding and as for the slug. Dont blame the kids society made them this way by handing them this excuse or something happen to them .unfortunately we dont known enough to judge so maybe neither should u

    2. Sweety:

      ” Something happened to them” alright. It’s called piss poor parenting and a general social malaise regarding basic acceptance of responsibility and lack of discipline that these punks desperately need. Unfortunately, it’s people like you that protect and coddle these genetic misfires ensuring their continued pathetic life of failure and crime.

      From reading your sub-grade four grammar and punctuation, you’d be wise to refrain from questioning anyone’s intelligence.
