skatull Re:When will he be arrested? (666 comments)

Radar jammers, they exist, they are effective and illegal. Also since a team could conceivably be charged with conspiracy. In most cases conspiracy to commit a crime is a felony even if the crime is a misdemeanor.

Rocco: Is it dead?
later...
Rocco: I killed your cat, you druggie bitch.
Donna: God.
Rayvie: What?
Donna: Why?
Rocco: I thought it would bring closure to our relationship.

But they may have something, Boondock Saints was not a hit in theaters, falls in "cult classic" bin. Did make millions on rentals/dvd sales so the studio green lighted the crappy sequel.

My two cent's, offer more logic, rhetoric and critical thinking in the schools. (and perhaps on the School Board)
