    Couldn't agree more! Chris had everything going for him a few years back and look how things have gone. He could do so much with his life but has made too many bad choices!

    This is crazy, who steals from their neighbor and hides what they stole in a van in the yard across the street from where they stole from?!?!? What a shame that Chris Harris has fallen so low. Drugs, divorce, and choice of friends will really mess a person up.
