Stupid, stupid, stupid.


Again as have been saying the Italian "Mafia" isn't what most have to worry about. But yet am sure in "da Hood" and elsewhere these punks are idolized just like the Sopranos for "living large". Even if again that livelihood comes at the expense of misery to others.

If you are living that type of life then you need to lay off social media.

Fast money is very tempting, especially when your alternatives are low paying jobs.

Especially when once out of prison even those "low paying" jobs won't touch a convicted felon.

Once is in prison, it takes a lot of hard work to gain back the trust from the society again.

What kills me is people spread/worship that thug lifestyle as if it is something to aspire to....


That mother who got a Porsche for her birthday from her drug smuggling son is all smiles in pictures. She is no different than any other hood or thug mother that just doesn't want to know how or where all this money is coming from.


You've got 17 year olds (or younger) running around with large money but no adult in their family asks any questions.


The mother, that baby's moma (whose kid got the Versace stroller), the whole lot of them should be arrested and prosecuted as accessories. That will wipe the smiles off their faces...

Just like Bernie Madoff Wife didn't ask any questions while her husband scammed thousands of people.

Most people get jaded by money, especially people that never had it.

What Mrs. Madoff did or didn't know about her then husband's dealings is another matter. It is *NOT* that uncommon for men on Wall Street/hedge funds or whatever connected to finance to make vast sums. What she nor anyone else knew was that the man did so by being a crook.


That is quite different from some thug in a hood with no visible means of support suddenly living *very* large.


You have teens to young adult men living in the projects/hood/ low income areas with barely a grade or high school education, no job, and do really nothing all day; but they have tons of money, bling, and are driving sweet rides. That alone is suspect.

Six months in I'm really disappointed in the President Trump Reality Show. When he said drain the swamp I thought he was going to serve some justice and hold the Wall Street crooks that crashed the economy and shook the world truly accountable. We'd get Judge Judy TV and watch it all play out 24/7 live Television and aired in Classrooms. He'd shake down those ivory towers and root out the back room boardroom deals and hold trials by fire with public scrutiny, pitchforks, and torches to the corporate mafias. I guess it's really hard to do when the snake coils are so wound tight and all entrenched in the pit. Ugh.
