Is the reward for dead or alive?

Hi Angel, where did you get that? Nothing posted at BurntbeansandBS?

At least they are getting closer to this scumbag.

I'm of the opinion that "alive" is preferable, but does he have to be in one piece?

Robert Fowler said...

Probably a good idea. I guess he thinks he has a better chance with the cops,

I agree with Mr. Fowler, he could have had several tripping and walking into walls accidents had he been caught by Righteous Patriots...

Angel, thank you so much for putting this up. We are so busy right now I haven't even had time to think about posting on the blog. Also, theres a story tonight on channel 10 in Amarillo. Some car dealership guy there saw the story and the suspect had traded the truck in there or something. I'm still a little sketchy on the details.

Ya think he decided to wait until his BAC was back down to normal?
