  • Neither one of you know what a TRUE thug is. Dont use the word so loosely in public in certain areas ... youll find that happening to you as well.

  • Thats a union person for you. My husband worked at Dana and one of his friends was shot to death (9 rounds with a 22) in the parking lot by another employee. He did it in front of about 60 people leaving work. He drove to the cop shop and turned himself in. The union steward (who happened to be the best friend of the man shot) was forced to go to the company and fight for the shooters job to be reinstated and have him put on workmans comp until he was convicted. Thats how sick unions have become.

    So to sum it up. The man willlikely get it.

  • I see nothing wrong, people get beat up everyday. Doesnt make anyone a thug. If thats the case 75% of the country would be thugs.

    The definition given by a bunch of rappers and overgrown little boys playing cops and robbers because they are too lazy to get a real job does not replace the real English definition of a word just because they want to pad their street cred.

  • When I watched this video....I felt very sad about how real this is and how people from both sides are getting hurt and still people use the violence to get your message across, I can see the Obama camp as the ones with the organized crime on this one.
