High Noon Hanging. Public Welcome.

He’s the type of dumbazz woketard that would be loved in jail. A scrubby neck beard and twin ball ticklers.

Lemme put muh BBC up inside this cracker

Dam white crackers. Shooting up this town. Go back to where you came from. Today!

easy now, he’s just a thug, wannabe.

Ya. One white guy shoots at ppl. How many times have Chicago and Detroit scum bags done so on this town? You have to see the obvious disparity in that. Not to mention the statistics nationwide. Black males ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE MAJORITY OF GUN VIOLENCE. It is undebatable. Grow up ass wipe.

One white guy? You think this is the only dumbass white guy inntown who has shot at people. Put your white robe away.

No Robe..but show me the proof or conjecture on your part

Sorry I hurt your feelings Billy boy. Is Jacob your lover?

He was probably just protecting himself against the Chitcago thugs. The police can’t seem to find the black thugs shooting up the town.

guess we found the blm boys who have no problem with the black douchebags around here doing the same thing.

if thats the case to bad he missed

I know why the schools have stopped holding kids back from moving onto the next grade…the desks aren’t big enough for the dumbass 30+ year olds in this town.
