2. Ferguson Has Been Previously Charged With Punching Her Grandmother & Stabbing Her Brother

News 12 Brooklyn reports that despite being just 16, Ferguson has a lengthy criminal record. In September 2014, she was charged with resisting arrest after being apprehended for punching a 20-year-old woman. A month later, she was charged with assaulting her grandmother. Most recently, in February 2015, Ferguson was accused of stabbing her brother in the arm inside her family’s home in the Prospect-Lefferts Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn.

I agreed with heidi.. ..put that animal to sleep like a bad dog!!!! Or charging her with attempted of murder.


ALREADY A MOTHER AT 17?– NICE…. I bet her mother is 27 ……
she deserves nothing but prison life — …”no mickey d’s for yo ass” …..
and shame on the adults – who stood there and watched-
animals beating animals –


the lack of care from the audience was the most sickening. they were literally just cheering and enjoying a show.

‘worlddddddd starrrrrrrrrrrrr’

damn animals


I feel so embarrassed, she went to my school last year and she assaulted 3 teachers and slaped one of them


She’s a human being and there is true justice not system justice and that matter branches out into other issues. Simply agreeing with others feelings doesn’t entail validating them as donned truth.

Goodra is fe,m,ale

If G.oodra could be male, Would you be able to see her as such? I mean she literally stays the same way as she already is. No g.ender differences, no nothing. Just she is able to be male. I wouldn’t think so as GC G.oodra are extremely hard to find, and they’re just G.oodra who identify themselves as a male. What if those were to actually become “male” G.oodra for real? Would it increase the usage of “males” or would it be pointless and stay the way it already is where every G.oodra is predominantly fe.m.ale?

As for my opinion on this, the answer is “No”.

G.oodra in my eyes is extremely fe.minine. More fe.minine than Gardevoir and that’s saying something. I can somehow see all the other femmons as a male, but not G.oodra.

This is more fe -m-in-ine than hum- an fe-m -a-les.. I’m dead fucking serious. Even a kawaii 2D animu Japanese girl with giant tata’s couldn’t possibly be more fe-m-i n-ine than an angry G-o .o d ra like the above pic.


Lucky the police got her I was going to beat her ass myself I want dat botch to stAy away from my son n besides her mouth is 2 f ucking much
