Well, Money, looks like you just confessed publicly to a Class D felony.

I love it how folks just can't wait to brag to the world about the crimes they commit, be they wanna-be gangstas on YouTube or our very own Alfred E. Neuman. It's folk like them that keep the lawyers in business.

My gun has a safety on it. The safety on my gun is on. Catch me if you can. Course we are dealing with the University Police, not anything like a real police department. You kinda have to shoot yourself for them to catch you.
