      I don’t see how this guy escaped life without parole. That should have been his sentence.

      His son who survived has cerebral palsy. And now this POS is saying he wants custody. The kid’s grandmother says it will never happen.

      Carruth should count his blessings that he’s been released and then GO AWAY and leave those people alone.

      Andrew Gillum can win this. If the Democrats do as well as they did in 2016 AND flip Duval County (which they can), Andrew Gillum is the next governor of Florida!
