Oh, this guy is a piece of work. While he absconded, he'd post taunts on his MS. He is a total slimeball. He just happened to have the misfortune of showing up in my favorite local judge's courtroom.

Intimidation charges apply when victims of crimes are targeted because of race, color, religion, country of origin or sexual orientation........."
