    Dave reminds me of the sad and lonely 14 year old in high school whose parents are going through a divorce. So, in order to distract himself he acts up in class and then complains about how stupid he thinks his school and teachers are.

    3 Down,1 to go. Another punk thug off the street. To bad most of them only learn more criminal activity in jail. It would be great if they could learn responsibility and compassion, and a have a set of morals when they come out. But I guess that's asking to much.

    His children have everything to do with it. If he was taking care of all those kids, he would not have time to do anything illegal. And I had a seatbelt ticket in 1991. Other than that, clean as a whistle. How much child support does he owe? Alot. No I am too busy paying for my two children and his 8 to get into any trouble.

    Seriously, you have to be able to write better than that. I felt as if I was watching a scene out of "I'm gonna get you sucka". That was painful to read.

    2 down. 2 to go. How nice would it be to have Greenville back in the hands of law abiding citizens instead of having all these punk thugs here. Ride down any street in W Greenville and you stand a chance of getting assaulted because these thugs think they own the town or at least the street you may be driving on.
