    See what I told you about the difference in race between this and the man who was stopped on I10 with alittle over a gram?When it's this race they also get an Intent to distribute.That is why they get more time in jail.Plus he had his son on top of that.

    If these idiots would put as much effort in finding a job and doing the right thing as they do illegal things think how much better the world would be.

    Roachpruf. Do the right thing. Kill all of the roaches on Earth! The roaches serve no purpose, they provide nothing, they take and destroy. They have no family...They have no redeaming qualities! Send them away. To hell.

    This guy not only had drugs in the vehicle, he rammed a police vehicle with his putting the safety of his 4 yr-old in jeopardy. I hope his car is seized, and his kid put into a safer environment.
