    I swear this is the man that was in front of me at the gas station last week. Hard to mistake tattoos like that. I find it a little funny that the cashier refused to sell him tobacco because he did not have an ID.

    With a face like that, it’s kinda hard not to think he’d be responsible for a violent crime or two.

  • Annie February 17, 2013 at 8:24 am

    Ummm it is not ignorant to wonder if he’s illegal, it’s a fact that lots in St George are and I totally agree I don’t think someone looking like that has never seen the inside of a prison cell, YIKES!!!
