  1. The whole made up crap propagated by Maddox, attorney Akbar, the fake news cost the tax payer big league. Riley disregarded a long standing law that prohibits speeding through town, drunk at night with the head lights turned off with a suspended driver’s license. No wonder crime and especially black crime is getting worse. I bet, if Riley had to pay for his defense, his attorney would had him in front of the judge within a few weeks. But when the taxpayers paid the bill, Riley got over a years legal representation for free. This is the future and the future is now.
