Maybe all they had

was a mug shot and did not want to insult the family by using that.

Remember

Remember, he's innocence until proven guilty. Don't want to offend a possible innocent person, do you?

No way! Please don't say Harrisburg. But the very expensive Kroc center is there. I am so shocked!

Safe Home and a New Boyfriend, Maybe ??
Unpublished

Now that you know your "boyfriend" is a convicted felon, who has now shown to be unbalanced -- a gun to your head and a machete to your throat; it might be a good time to head to a safe home, and get a good boyfriend that will treat you with respect. They do exist, and you probably can do better than this piece of trash. Just think about it.
