    “That’s one less user running the streets.” According to the article he IS in fact running the streets.

    “Lacey you dont just get 20 years for the very first time. I’m sure that he had a long history and had accumulated enough points due to his repeated behavior that led to him getting a 20 year sentence. That’s one less user running the streets which makes our communities that much safer.”

    Except, he is literally running the streets right now. lol

    My goodness, I went to school with Travis at Ernest Ward. He’s from McCullough, so that’s likely where he’s headed.
