    Leave it to the commonwealth....oh how swim loves VA...fucking rednecks...all of them. One day swim hopes for a change but that will probley be the day when VA gets wiped off the map.

    Lack of details indeed thegoodfight. I'm sure the commonwealth has no more details then that also the way things are run around here. If you sneeze wrong around here you go to prison for life it seems. Swim highly doubts the guy was a kingpin. But again, they probley consider the guy they bust smoking a joint in his own home a kingpin.
