while it is good that ex cons can get jobs or start their own business i still feel the system is rigged for them to fail.

i don't have any ideas to whom or what may be behind the failures of venturing forth, just opinions like old jealous cronies, nosey cops with nothing better to do and drug use/alcoholism are some reasons i guess.

Where is Chud Dud to cry over this death like he does the Capitol policeman's death. Is Chud Dud actually a racist and doesn't care about black people being murdered? Say it isn't so.

Chud is a black racist that has probably raped, robbed and murdered and lives on gubmint welfare and is apart of the free rent movement, no wonder he’s so angry. He spent all his money on crack, hoes, booze and a 2002 Escalade with bullet holes in it and can’t afford to pay his fiddy dolla’s a munt rent so.

23 year-old Keandre Lamay needs jail time not mental health coddling, which his mommy hopes he gets. Mommy had +18 years to teach her son how to act properly. It didn't take. Maybe he'll be scared shitless after some time in jail and go straight (no homo) when he's back out?
