    Guys, I dont really think that it is my place to be talking about this because I actually do have better things to do. But why dont you people back off. Do something productive, I dont know get a life and stop talking about others problems to make your sad mundane existances seem interesting. Innocent or guilty it is none of your places to judge other people. Just a thought

    Cactus.. I am quite certain that Victor learned his jail house education the "hard way", if you know what I mean. I am very impressed he even knows how to log into a computer.I agree with To Victor(12/12/09 @06:58)

    You have something negative to say about everything. Your life must really suck. Sorry that you have no job, no wife, and no life. Victor is right innocent until proven guilty. There are alot of people in jail now that are innocent. Anyway you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I hope you get everything you want.

    Victor, since you seem to have gone to lawyer school while you were in jail, I guess you will defend these to "out standing citizens". Can we have three cheers for VICTOR, he learned until "proven guilty". Victor please keep us posted on your jail house education.

    Thats what all you convicts say, "I am innocent". Man up ,and tell the viewers what you are "innocent of".

    To Victor: The "stolen" pipe was found in his back yard, so I'm pretty sure he's not innocent. I am certain that most people who commit crimes say they are innocent until the courts find them guilty. Thats just my little comment.

  • by Victor on Dec 12, 2009 at 07:48 AM

    He steals copper to prove the age old truth that criminals exist in all races, ethincities, social classes, and statuses.... Apparently some of you people think crime only originates in West Greenville.

    Apparently, they do not know about the new law, SB 5312, that went into effect on Dec. 12th concerning weighing of scrap metal for recycling/profit. Businesses that buy that sort of thing now have a weight limit for each customer. Anyone merchant who sees this much copper should have to fill out a report, before handing out the scrap metal money.
