Listen here hunny that is my brother you are talking about and no they dont still hang people in Texas for that they can but they dont especially when the cows were on your own land and the owner didnt want to come get them.......It is his first offense he wont get hung that just shows how prehistoric you think the state of Texas is, where I come from you dont like it when people talk mess about our family nomatter what they done, so just keep your comments to yourself ok

They do still hang cattle thieves in Texas, right? Two-year olds do not need any cocaine, they are already wired enough without it. Stealing from banks is fair play as far as I'm concerned, read about fractional reserve banking an how banks use it to create money out of thin air and you'll see that banks are the real theives (and counterfeiters.)
