  • September 15th, 2010 This is the guy who in 2006, sat on my dying father's bloated abdomen while he was on his deathbed- and played it off like it was nothing, an accident. I can't prove it but I'm sure he's part of how he ended up dying without morphine- this bastard made sure he hurt as much as possible.
