Is it ok if I go on another... (Below threshold)
Sippin on Gin and Amish:

Is it ok if I go on another anti-cop screed? I actually read the whole article this time. Eh, better not.

Im just waiting for a rap song about going "F5 on an undercover cop"

God help anyone convicted of something serious.
