Its a shame that all 3 people were charged with with the crimes when 2 of them were just along for the ride and ignorant to the fact that there was anything illegal in the car its a shame that the system is more interested in getting convictions than it is in making sure justice is served. I Can't believe that we the people allow our rights to be taken without even batting an eye and remaining ignorant to what it is leading us into witch is communisim. If we dont start standing u ppl for our rights, before we know it we won't have any. True story.
