    • Maybe his parents are the lowlifes! Ever think about that? Hmmm. I don’t believe this one the mom knows who the dad is. Yeah, think about that. Crap for parents! The other one that didn’t choke the trooper had a dad that was in prison his whole childhood and his mother abandoned him over & over. The loosers are their parents. Parents are still accountable in case you didn’t know. Know that for when you raise your own kids, if you haven’t already. It’s a big job that no everyone is up for. Especially these boys parents. Hard to parent from prison and when their living with whomever they find to drop them off to and abandon them. Bad parents most likely won’t raise good kids. Sometimes, but most likely not. Judge and you will be judged.
