He was an idiot and didn't set his privacy settings to friends only when posting from his Crackberry. They had left several comments on his last two visible posts, almost all of which are gone now. Yeah, I couldn't resist peepin' his profile after these stellar photos were posted here. Feel free to castigate me.

Lester do you have Anything better to do then comment on a article all day? Honestly your the creepy one commenting on his looks and everything else. He's goig to jail , the cops have him so settle down there and maybe get back to work? If you do. I don't think any of you are police officers and if you were I sure would hope you'd be out doing your job and catching other criminals instead of commenting on a post about someone who was caught. I agree with heather bey it isn't a funny matter at all. Everyone should try and look at the situation and see how this kids family must feel. And everyone posting disgusting shit like this and possibly having this kids family read it should be ashamed of yourselves . Everyone keep it moving and worry about your own fuckin life ! Thank you !
