  1. First, F the verification process. Pictures were dark and blurry. Just because he was 15 doesn’t mean he was an innocent child. Just down Academy Blvd from this location a shopkeeper was killed by a young teen a few years back.

    1. Your ignorance and stupidity is what I love about this country!! That’s why California is a joke now.. Even left leaning personalities like Joe Rogan are leaving for Texas because California is just a piece of $hit due to far left fools!
