        He's gonna find out the hard way that he probably coulda bought that broad a car for less money than his lawyer's gonna squeeze out of him, knowing that he won the lottery.

          His lawyer might even agree to let him pay his legal bill over the next 26 years.

          If 5% appears too small, be thankful I don't take it all.

          Even though that lyric normally applies to the other hand-in-the-pocket guy; but since almost all politicians are also lawyers, there you go.

            Just because you are charged with a crime doesn't mean that you are guilty of that crime.There could be a logical explanation why he was helping the lady with the stolen Honda.The writer of this story could be leaving out facts that are crucial to this story just to make the story more interseting.

            From what it all sounds like, he was running around before doing illegal/questionable things, and because he still lives in the same place he still hangs out with all those past friends and so is likely tempted to help them out in situations. When he said he won he felt like he was headed in the wrong detection and worried that he'd end up back in prison.

            Yes it's true that he may be innocent, but even if he is, he's going to be in this position because of his friends and those around him.

            If I were in his position my main plan would be to get out of that town. My be a crummy position, but it's something he would need to do in order to not be tempted by friends/acquaintances who may get him back on that troubled path. I think he's set to get about $75,000 a year so I'm pretty sure he'd be able to rent an apartment for a few years and then buy a home.

              All I can say is maybe he didn't know the car was stolen. I noticed he didn't waste any money bailing her out. She probably told him it was her car, and when the car broke down he took it behind the house to fix it. I know a lot of people who fix cars in the back yard or in the garage. Lol, but I could be wrong.

                I Agree!  I was thinking the same thing, while I was wondering what it is about a person winning the lottery that makes OTHER people believe that everything that happens in that person's life, after their win, should be blasted out to the world.

                    He's gonna find out the hard way that he should have dropped all his sorry a** acquaintances even before he claimed his lottery winnings.  Those kinds of folks will hang around him making their problems his problems.  If he had brought that thief a car, she would have expected him to buy the gas and insurance too.

                      LOL,if you've ever been to Linda,California this story really comes as no surprise. I passed through this city once many years ago when it flooded and had no inclination to ever go back. Sorry,but it's a shantytown.

                        I for one, would like to get a list of all these sorts of shanty towns in California, so I can avoid them,
                        should I ever win the lotto.

                        I don't wants to be caught up in a auto theft sitchiashun.

                        It's worse dan dat.   "Linda" is the name of a girl I used to date.

                        bet my man learnit now. he's saying "da'ag man, what ah do? why i dont leave?"

                        Some folk learn slow.

                          True that!

                          Read the entire story and just like a fishing net its filled with holes and vague innuendos.

                          There isnt a person walking this earth that at some point hasn't lacked common sense or wisdom.

                          I remain split on this mans "intention" verses the criminal charge.

                          Just wish him the best with the life he gets to lead. May it be of positive gestures moving forward.

                            That's a pretty grim view of humanity.

                            I agree that someone's demons will likely follow them after a lotto win, so someone that is insufferable and wallows in misery as a routine course of action may very well do that after winning big, only with more money in the equation.

                            But it's just as likely that a lotto win would help someone snap out of it and enjoy life while it's there.

                            And I think that it's even more likely that most people would not automatically implode after winning.  If you consider all of the thousands (or probably tens of thousands) of winners over the past few decades, even put together, all of the Jack Whitaker's of the world do not actually amount to a large number. 

                            A hundred idiots for every thousand winners.

                            I'm starting to think that RJ actually nailed it with 9.9% - nice call on that!

                            Well 9.9 percent is actually what makes the headline. If i ask you one question if you see a one rat in your house in the morning and you see one rat in the afternoon and you see one rat at night.How many rats do you think you have. Well for every story you hear there are alot you will never hear about so thats life lots of lotto winners have serious issues but only few talk about it untill you win you will have your chance to find out for yourself. lol

                              So,are you saying that if & when you win the lottery you will also be one of these losers?Or are you somehow better than the 99.9% of lottery winners that are losers in life?
