On a side note, let’s hope that’s not a current photo of that lush green lawn.

Will the real Ramirez please stand up.

Second jail bird to fly the coop in 2 months and our prison system can’t even post photos? Really?

Like walking away from your favorite country club…soon he’ll become homesick and return.

6’1″ 270? What the? Is the food really that good and plentiful in prison?

Just like their health care system 5-Star and free, while those of us not breaking the law struggle to pay for our own health care and food. And in November the takers are asking for even more money from us, NO on any tax/fee increase.
