SIBA Shooter Should Not Have Been Able To Get A Gun

    He should have taken a money management course first. That may have helped him to better allot his cash flow. NO wait, blame it on the financial aid person that his entitlement funds ran out.. He had enough money to get a gun and some bullets though.


    I guess were all supposed to feel sorry for him now? Yah I’m not, the THUG got off easy in my book. Another one of his kind put in jail to eat up hard working American tax dollars.

    Now there is one more the tax payers have to support. I don’t feel sorry for him. He had no right to do what he did. I am just sick of tax money waste on people that don’t care about anyone but them selves.

    He needed the money the banks have enough of it, so he should have got it . I mean look at him he’s black he’s entitled to the white mans money. And If you don’t agree your a rural right wing hick tea party NRA member.


    Let’s try this again. First he shoots someone. Then he is convicted of this crime.
    Then complains about his lawyer. A lawyer he did not pay for. We the tax payers paid for his defense. Stop bitching Johnson and see you in 49 years, maybe.
    Let’s see if this stays up or if this is also taken down.
