How dumb do you have to be to join a gang?

This gang is called Pittsburgh jack City but is based in Atlanta. Wouldnt that make them the Atlanta Jack City gang? Do they not own a map?

Anywho, this is yet another fine citizen filling up a jail cell. Hopefully for a LONG time.

Kids, look at this mug. (Or mugshot)

This is not the person you want to model your life after. He is a LOSER.

Do you think he is tough? If so, why did it take all of them to beat up a guy who wasnt even fighting?

Too bad the victim didnt have a gun. That would have made the difference in being a victim and an exterminator. He would have been doing the world a favor.
