    Are you crying? There’s no crying in arson!

    Domestic assault, drugs, theft of property, DWI and a number of other charges and convictions on the rap sheet. It’s good that this turd will be locked up for a while and not on the street.

      Liberals are the cause of violence … always have been.
      They don’t get their way then they pout and vandalize sturring riots.

        Pretty sure “sturring” is not a word in the English language there, chief.

      I have a higher than average IQ and you couldn’t pay me to vote for a Republican candidate for ANYTHING.

      • Les Johnson

        Your IQ is far below average..You’ve proven that repeatedly.

  • RetroDude

    I’m sure he’s just another victim of racial profiling. Those darned cops – catching the first brother they see running away.

  • The Axe Swinger

    Just more racists comments from small minded people..Whites commit way more crime than anyone..

    • rj

    • @Axe

      Whites committ more crime but make up 20% of prison population lol, if your parents are white your existence is a crime.

    I saw this incident begin this morning as I left for work. It is very sad. Just a few houses down from us people hurting and in pain. There has been an increase in violent crimes and drug dealing in this neighborhood, especially as we continue to face tough economic times. There has also been an equally strong outcry from the homeowners in the area to do something about the crime and sub-standard living conditions some are forced to live in. I know this man. He has never done anything to us personally. He has both mental and physical disabilities, as well as alcohol and temper issues. I just hope he can turn his life around before it’s too late. Very sad day for Eastsiders.

      BDO, boy this guy has you fooled. He is just another violent offender from Chicago. Hope there are no women in you family cause he is wanted for sex crimes.

    My partner Bruce & I spent a very romantic Valentines weekend in San Francisco in 2009…We visited the Castro District & The Tenderloin..After a few winecoolers on an empty stomach (only a salad at brunch) I became very belligerent & hurt when some random Leatherman kissed Bruce while I was in the restroom freshening up…I felt like burning THAT place down!!

    • helikedit

      I scrogged Bruce while you were freshing up at Gabes. To actually set a building on fire while occupied, is attemted murder in my book!

        Hahahaha oh dear…thanks for the laugh!!

    • em0886

      Sorry but nobody cares…this story isn’t about you, it’s about the poor family that was involved in this incident. Maybe you should learn to hold your alcohol better…maybe Bruce shouldn’t have let that person kiss him?! Just sayin

      • em0886

        In reference to the selfish one above

  • jeff
