  1. Deja Fool’s people have torched the evidence. Now this is where the government needs to act and post guards at all of our courts. Of course one hopes that the police have copies of all the records, and all they want is steady electricity so that they reproduce them on a xerox machine. That way when the catch Deja Fool, they will simply add arson to his many crimes of larceny, and proceed to lock the bugger up with his Lebanese-loving homo friend Kaizar Zulu

    • You should feel ashamed of yourself vomiting unproductive nonsense. This page is not for mentally challenged people. Here we share ideas not rubbish.

    • @Deja Vu: Fools like you, who appropriated parts of the bed of the Kafubu river when it was temporarily dried, and support the looters of Senseli mine, and have therefor many crimes to answer, are the ones who arelikely to have torched the court house. You Kaponyas are going to be taught respect for law when you are incarcerated on lengthy sentences for your wanton disregard of the law.
