Quotes

"Well he has gotten robbed already, and I don't know if it could have been from off that robbery because he never told me about it. When he came to me the following week I told him about it and he says that he didn't want any problems because he had already gotten back everything. I don't know if it is because of that same robbery that happened so long ago.
