    It's also impressive that the police were able to set up a "stake out" so quickly in the garden center. Those Boaz police are on top of the game my friends. I WOULD NOT attempt to commit a crime in Boaz!

    And he shoplifted a booty. Wow, that has to be felony. I mean is says he left the store with "a shoplifted booty". Whoever's booty it was should press additional charges.

    Wow that is a crazy story. Stealing a pack of underwear? And if you go down to the 9th little paragraph you will read that he struck a girl in the teen! That has to be a felony right there, to hit someone in the teen? That is brutal!
