    Shame the man he whipped was not ready when they went in his home standing by with a .44 mag. A third eye would not make this piece of ---- look any worse.

    Exactly Ray-Cysts he looks very "illegal immigrant", but it will help him more than hurt him.

    It is sad. I know this kid. He has always gotten into trouble and had a bad attitude, but I did not see this coming.
