Good. The criminal saved everyone time and money. More criminals should follow his example.
Double tap to the back of the head? That kind of suicide? Just kidding.

How many bankers are involved?
Holy R. Budd Dwyer, Batman!
Thanks for the ping!
Another globalist bites the dust?

In the back of the head twice, with a bolt action rifle?
However. He won’t be testifying.
Is there anywhere in mexico or sub mexico not dripping of corruption?
