  1. is this the f bastard that run him off the road in Stockton last year.. trying to kill him??? does this lowlife f drive a red van? video is going around facebook right now .. of him reporting it..

  2. Uhh that was probably a random driver being an asshole. Billy broke into this mans house once before and tried to steal the bike. He went back to complete his task after he was already warned and it cost him his life. Billy was a good kid but his decisions later in life brought him to where he’s at
