      1. Because you’ll probably claim that this guy is a registered democrat like you do on every single article the baynet puts out

        1. Stop lying and spewing out your blind ignorance. You should do some research on him and find out for us. I’ll bet you big money that he is one of your party’s finest members, since 98% of all heinous crimes are done by democrat supporters! Very few Republicans would ever do those types of crimes. Plus the MO of your party is always “armed with a knife (or gun) and wearing a mask.”
          Face it son; Your party is corrupt, evil and forever destroyed! Go and look at what someone wrote in as a comment on the smnewsnet.com website:
          “I promise to be a good boy if the DA lets me out. I also will vote twice in the next election. Guess which party I will vote for?” Case closed!

          1. Yep exactly case closed you’ve proven my point once again right to a tee, only Democrats are criminals, I bet when it’s cloudy outside you blame that on Democrats as well?
            Oh btw in case you forgot, I don’t vote, republicans and democrats are both crooks
            I just find it absolutely hilarious you let politics ruin your life
