  1. This guy is a pig!! He has herpies and aids so watch out ladies for this woman beater!!!

  2. I went to school with this loser.

    As recently as a month ago he was arrested again for driving the wrong way down Northwest Highway in Palatine and then falling asleep in the McDonalds drive through!


  3. I served in combat with this guy.

    He saved many lives.

    This saddens me knowing his PTSD was out of control.

    God bless you corporal

  4. I’m sorry, but his PTSD had nothing to do with this.

    He was drunk and high off of opiates and I was trying to leave him after he was having several affairs and was unemployed while I was working my ass off to support us.

    I tried to leave and he was forcing me to stay and he nearly killed me in the process when luckily our roomate came in and saved my life.

    nothing excuses that type of behavior.

    It changed my life forever.

    Now I have nightmares and flashbacks and jump and startle easily and have problems with trust and security.

    He can go to hell.
