He didnt consider stealing in other feed himself, here you are able body man saying trash. Nobody messes with the Govt I tell you man, u will rot in jail. Imagine the shame you have brought upon yourself, family and mostly your children.

    You went into the biz because you needed to eat. Well, there is food in the jailhouse. See their funny faces as if they don’t know why they were arrested.
