Desperado, You've been out wreaking havoc . . . . Thug of the Week
I usually try to look at this thuggery from a lighter perspective. This week's thug is a little different though. When I saw the charges this guy has had, it bothered me that this guy is even alive. Joseph Haley rni#24708 has been booked into the county jail 133 times. Many of his charges are just misdemeanors, but he has also been arrested and convicted of crimes like aggravated kidnapping, rape of a child, robbery,grand larceny, petit larceny, etc. Fortunately, he is in jail, and will probably be there a while.
According to wikipedia a desperado is a person who cannot wait for something to happen, and sometimes may resort to violent or reckless actions.
See also: Desperados ,Highwayman , Outlaw,Stock character, Villain. Somehow those words are too soft. Thug doesn't really do it either. Social Misfit, nah that doesn't quite get it either. I guess I'll have to leave it to your imagination to come up with the proper terminology.....
