  1. Good job by all officers involved!! Now if the system will do their job and keep both of them behind bars for MANY years!

  2. Hopefully his federal probation gets revoked and he gets to spend time in his favorite resort getaway to build up more cred and work his way up the ranks.

  3. These two must have thought they were Bonnie and Clyde. Oh boy, they belonged to a gang. That just makes them lower than lower than they already were. I hope they get put away for a long time. Thanks to all the LEO’s involved for cleaning up the streets a little but now we need a Judge that will stand up to these low life punks and put them away and keep the trash off the streets.

  4. These guys got a whole laundry list of charges but the first line in the article says it was a stolen vehicle. Might want to add that to the charges for these scumbags.

  5. This guy ain’t nothing but trouble! Has so many talents but choices to be a criminal ! Sad and sickening !!!!!
