Really Dixieman. If you have

Really Dixieman. If you have the consequences of doing time, why not think big if you are going to steal. But then again,maybe we give criminals too much credit. Most are dumb as rocks. That's why they are criminals.

Like Nocnoc says, with 20 minutes of video there must be some good shots of him. We need to see them.

Another one of those cases

Another one of those cases where the subject is clearly a black male, but the AC doesn't mention the race. Interesting.
