DeAnna L. Silva Noia-Blase, My relatives came to this country legally and with clear heads on their shoulders. They worked hard to better themselves and more importantly the United States of America. Let it be known that crybaby worthless imports will be dealt with.

These two belong (father and son) do deserve to be "lumped" together. They also deserved to be in prison together. And futhermore, while there, deserve to be humped together by the bigger, tougher and even more sexually perverse inmates! This is Pete's opinion, and it is a good one! hah

Whose family? The one the father ruined or the other family (LaMar) that the son ruined? Everyone is thinking about these families - that is why we all have so much to say.
