I was wondering what the reports were about them paying millions in bond money a few weeks ago, now I see. they knew the long arm of the u.s. was coming for them. let it be known the tricks that work here will not work in the u.s., so the HEY LOOK OVER THERE DEFENSE will not work, nor will the o I'm sick trick work either. you guys are looking at around 25 years in a good old America style jail cell and all those stacks of cash your family has won't save you either.
