    Being stupid is robbing a bank.
    Being retarded is not wearing a mask
    Being completely brain dead is texting his crimes
    The real robbery is now to the taxpayers who have to feed and cage this meat head for many years.

      you don't sound very intelligent yourself ..at least he was man enough to admit that he was wrong for what he did.. everyone makes mistakes there's not anyone out there that hasn't made a mistake..big or small.. no ones perfect.. . people shouldn't talk about someone they don't know
