    Now don’t they look like a couple of winners, huh? As rough as they appear, I imagine convictions and jail won’t change them one bit.

    About time–this Marcella (the PRETTY ONE) has had people drop dead in her house–for God’s sake.

    Race has nothing to do with it, trash comes in all colors. And chances are both of them ARE on welfare – probably two of the thousands collecting benefits that don’t deserve them or need them thanks to their booming drug business. Also willing to bet at least one of ‘em has kids that belong to the state now.
