  1. Cops are doing a good job flushing the toilet. Let’s hope the judicial system doesn’t fail them.

    However, if past precedence is taken into account, these slime bags will likely be back on the street in a couple days laughing at the cops who busted their asses to arrest these creeps. .

  2. you dummys stand out like sore thumbs you’ll never be succesful selling drugs in thunder bay.
