    This man is an American hero.

    The scourge of drugs and gangs has plagued our fair city for far too long. Release him so he can continue his good works and drive the underclass from our midst.

    I stand with him.

    Who among you will stand with me?

    Just think of all the money, a “vigilante of justice” could save the state, with a small jailhouse incident.
