      That is a horrible statement. What if Mr. Brown does have kids? Do you think voicing your hopes of their non existence makes any of this better? Shame, shame too bad we don’t know your name.

    Felony Probation Violation…OUCH!
    bye bye Brown.
    I haven’t always been the most law abiding citizen, I think if I had to name one thing that I thought helped me change my ways was the food they serve in jail and my love of Mexican food…I guess that’s two things but I can’t think of jailhouse food and not think of Mexican food for some reason and of course margaritas.
    I hope this helps somebody else out there because believe me the food they serve sucks *ss.

      Tinner…jail food is SUPPOSED to be bad. Believe it or not, they (the jail) don’t WANT you to come back. Nothing would make those custody deputies happier than an empty jail.
