  2. Ethan Von Le and Christopher Morrison, looks like you’re going to spend many years in jail being someone’s girlfriend. Another expression is used but I can’t say it, a hint it starts with a B. Your parents must be so proud of you throwing your lives away but the old saying is the nut does not fall far from the tree. You guys are nothing more than animals. Oh boy your tats make you real men, HA! Thanks to the Judge that gave the bond that he did and thanks to all the LEOs involved for doing a great job. More trash off the streets makes the good people a little safer.

    • No , that’s the sad part …. They probably won’t even do 6mths , unless HEAVEN forbid the victim passes ….. but yeah … maybe they will make some fellas in there really happy campers while they are there !
