Lincoln? or rosevelt

60 year old and 19?? Are these ages correct? What’s the deal?
Also was close by Roosevelt not Lincoln.

Only black lives matter not white lives

I just cant believe hes black

Another Chitcago import. We should send them all back where they came from.

Hey I don’t know the guy personally but I know he’s from Arkansas he. Also is an ex veteran to the Marine. He’s been dealing with mental health issues, know what you’re talking about and judge not until judged first.

Thank you for his service, welcome to Iowa, and now end his life before he rots away in prison for 30′ years at our expense. POS!

When is black bark and gang going to start bussing the type people into Manly – paper said the applied for a grant – run by worth county/city council pig shit eaters.

Good thing that pork plant didn’t come to town, crime would have really picked up.

Does anyone remember six weeks ago when this was not the normal….


How does someone know that this is tied to chitco, detroit? Lets know some names and race b4 we speculate???????

sure a lot of people in M.C. with the same name (anonymous)…Jim

I am considering changing mine to something else

Little chitcago – keep those greyhounds rollin – When are your going to tell your city council and the chamber of destruction to leave town on the same bus.. Get some balls -speak up!

English please.

Easy to understand if you get your head out of your ass.

Easy to understand ! MC has been inundated with criminals and thugs from Chicago…Detroit etc. They arrive on Greyhound busses with their guns, drugs and steak havoc on our community. If the City Council and Chamber of Commerce would get their heads out of their assets and address the issue maybe we could take our city back !

Typo..Wreak. Havoc !!

Steak sounded delicious though

Paranoid Dumb Ass.

Another damn import.
