    all the kent co. prosecutor will do is plea bargain with him when the police who work there butts off to catch him then let him off with nothing maybe if he would rob the prosecutors home then the b s plea bargains would stop or we get new prosecutors with balls to do away with these low lifes

    One of these days he’s gonna be lucky if he gets caught. If he’s unlucky, he’s gonna find a victim before then with a gun that’s ready to use it.
