      Man stop with the sarcasm. That is old man. Ppl of all color commit comes and do bad things. When it’s a black person it’s “good ole thugsboro” or “slayne county”… When it’s a white person, it’s ignorant comments like this. Chill with that man. Actually, let us up here know your name and location, that way we can beat some sense into you. Maybe then you’d quit being so quick to jump down ppls throat and saying things that can go unsaid. You’re like a damn child. Grow up. Move if you don’t like the “libtards” and “thugs”. If you have already moved, good, stay that way and STFU

        “You”, I understand that the “real kialboots” can be a bit “abrasive” at times but understand this, the one posting here is not that person. It is someone that has “jacked” the name and for some strange reason, the GDN has allowed that person to do this same thing on several occasions to other legitimate commentors. The GDN has registration information on each of us that posts to this site and therefore should be able to realize that this individual is not “kialboots” and should stop them from posting under that name.
