The beauty of anonymously posting on the internet is that you get to write whatever, without any repercussions. In response to JH resident, bet you won’t say that outside your computer screen. Your opinion is worthless and your hate rhetoric is inappropriate. Go hate somewhere else.

JHeights my whole life

Rest in peace to Mr. Hernandez. Sorry for his family’s loss. That’s what a cooment on a story like this should be not Trump or I wonder if Hernandez is an illegal immigrant. Someone died and no matter where he was born or who he voted for he died at 40 and that is sad.
