Tyrone Serbeler needs to be

Tyrone Serbeler needs to be taken off the streets and SOMETHING needs to be done to his mama for naming him that. He HAD to kill someone to prove he was a real man. Another unintended consequence of poor education.

Is that all you can come up with? His name, malt liquor and other nonsense? I guess if it was moonshine it would be right up your alley?

Poor parenting, this man is

Poor parenting, this man is 23 years old not 13. At some point people do what they want to do regardless of what they have been taught at home. As far as the poor education, criminals come from every walks of life. Not every criminal is a product of a bad home or lack education (ever heard of Ted Bundy). As far, as the surnames that has absolutely nothing to do with anything besides his middle name could be his moms maiden name. No one knows anything about this man on this site accept he's wanted for murder and that's enough right there without anyone having to sling the additional mud.
