    Why waste our tax dollars ?
    Load Mr.Cooper onto the conveyor belt,leading into
    the Soylent Green wafer processing Plant,

    You mean a crime of violence was committed without a gun? I thought if we banned all guns the violent crime would go away. We need to ban baseball bats!!! They don’t serve any legitimate sporting purpose- they’re only used for violence.
