Piece of Sh!t

Durham police say 32-year-old Crystal Mangum was arrested Sunday morning several hours after the stabbing that seriously injured her 46-year-old boyfriend.
I guess she just wasn't ready to let the limelight go... of course at one point, many people thought this stupid @#$@ was credible... with no evidence she ruined 4 young mens lives; and now she tried to end her boyfriends.

Of course, she'll get probation and some community service, but that's the benefits of being a useful idiot.
