    Nail ’em to the cross. They both probably started out shoplifting then graduated to the ultimate theft of taking another’s life. Flunkies. Home grown wickedness! Probably hiding behind that sugar coated word evil. The true word is wicked. As in wickedness. As in the wicked ones. One can be sure of one thing. Covid is going after the wicked. Trust in the good lord. Go with Goodness.

      “Home grown” I didn’t know that N1ggers were a native species in Iowa. Put a gas soaked tire around their necks and set them on fire.

        don’t forget the chubby neck-beard standing next to him. I bet his mama fed him well. People like this are brain-dead, soulless containers. The death penalty should be in every state.
