  1. It’s seems like the government, law enforcement, judges and magistrates, lawyers and the whole court shitstem want criminals to be at large! A criminal who has been involved with so many criminal activities is only sentenced to 18 months in prison for illegal possession of a firearm, while Marijuana smokers are given harsher sentences? Maybe it’s because he’s from a labah party stronghold?
