  1. This guy again! Once a bully, always a bully.
    Story time: Back in May of 2019 four guys were charged with attempted murder from an incident on James Street. The dangerous bully they put in the hospital and went to jail for doing so? None other than this guy, Don Laroue. He is hitting 60 years old, he’s lucky to have survived in 2019 and yet, he’s still at it!?! A bunch of unauthorized guns and ammo scattered about, yep. You can take the guy out of the streets, but you can’t take the streets out of the guy. Clearly.
