  • Both of these losers have babies at home, can some please Sterilize these 2 💩Heads? Perhaps the City could pass out free condoms at the Belmont Red line station. It appears to be home base for all the crime.

  • Those babies are probably living off our taxes too. Why no cry to sterilize the the women who get knocked up by these guys too? Rubbers are passed out for free at the center on Halsted down the street from the red line maybe if it were a little more straight friendly they would take advantage of their services?
