    Garcia was an abusive, drug addicted-dealing, dog-fighting, thieving, lying, criminal piece of shit his whole life. The world just got better without him. Hope he doesn’t rot the ground he’s dumped in. The driver who hit him deserves a metal, but it sounds like he was a quality citizen also—I guess our community gets rid of two pieces of trash for the price of one!

    This goes on all over town. They lose their license because they don’t pay fines and continue to drive without a license and insurance and threaten the honest people who drive legally. We have two of them right here in the neighborhood. They have been turned in multiple times by neighbors and nothing gets done.

      Actually in most States non active felon’s can vote, Iowa is like one of two states that don’t allow a felon to vote. BUT guess what? . . . In Iowa a felon can get gun rights back. Yep! Because that vote is mote dangerous then that gun . . . Especially to the politicians.

      Maybe you should vote the judges out if you don’t like the deals they make. I vote against the retention of all judges every election because they don’t have to worry about job performance.

        Love that idea! VOTE out the judges! Everyone should vote NO in the next election to retain KAREN KAUFMAN SALIC! She has ti be the most dim witted Judge iowa has ever had.

        “NO” to retain – KAREN KAUFMAN SALIC 2020!!!!!!!!!
