    I know Sam and he is a good guy. Since it was snowing, I suggest to drop all charges accept maybe driving on the sidewalk…That’s now safe.

    What? Shut up Kevin, people who drive around loaded, hitting kids are not good guys.

  3. Daniel says:

    Hopefully he will be put on trial and convicted. The word Methadone says it all.
