    “Prosecutors set aside the abduction and use of a firearm charges.” And there you have it! The democrat Henrico CA is a fully complicit contributor in the “war on women”. Don’t blame me, I didn’t vote for her.

    Wooooow! Either he knows someone in a high position or its because he’s white. The brat will get out and commit more crime.

    Yes he will Michael. He kidnapped her at gunpoint????? When the kids from Varina high pulled a senior prank people wanted them to get real jail time. He needs way more than what he has.

    I had to unlock this idiot’s car at Brown’s Island like a week or 2 before he did this. To hell with jailtime, he just needs to get the needle, and hopefully with the chemicals in the wrong order. No mercy.
