    That guy deserves to be in prison. I went to high school with him and at our 10 year reunion, we were all driving to a party and he called one of his cop buddies to pull me over. He did it because he liked a girl at the reunion that I was hooking up with so he had his cop buddy take me out of the mix. Good thing I didn't find out what really happened until years later or he would have gotten his ass kicked.
