no title - C'est comme d'habitude les flics ne s'occupent uniquement de ce qui est facile et sans risque, alors les braquages oula oula attention c'est dangereux.... les radars, emmerder les jeunes qui fument des petits petards facile !!

no title - Des délinquants à la courance ? Tu ferais mieux de dire à ton père de s'occuper des barjo qui braque les bar à coup de gun plutot que de s'occuper des jeunes qui joue au foot et fume des cone sur le parking. TSssss mais que fait la police ? De plus, tu pourra dire à ton père que les flics à la courance sont connus de tous. ET lorsqu'ils viennent un peu "espionner", ils sont grillé direct. Et dire qu'à 300 mètres de la il y a des pervers qui se paluche pendant que tu te change. Elles sont belles les priorités de la police.Tu dira félicitation à ton père!!
