        Are you some kind of idiot? Hernandez is a stupid Mexican.

    Pul, it’s better than having sex with your live stock like they do in your country. Jermain, he grabbed a girls ass. It’s not like he raped a girl, stuffed her in the trunk and then threw her lifeless body into a river like your people do. (doesn’t feel so good, does it)

    I’ve seen this first hand. It’s always over drawn and everyone acts innocent. The girl was probably flirting back and was caught by her boyfriend. She then acted innocent to steer his anger towards this guy. If I was being attacked, I would use all means necessary to defend myself. He obviously received a beating. Ask yourself. Would you go into a fight knowing this guy had a knife? Absolutely not! The knife may have come out after this guy was getting beat on.

    Have you ever thought of that scenario. Of course not because you like to jump to conclusions. You are the first to cast a stone and last to admit you were wrong. I hate people like you. Quit being stupid and naive. There’s always two sides of the story. You two should catch some sort of cancer and die.
