What’s the best way to treat homeless alcoholics? Give them a place to live with a concierge who runs out and buys them beer or vodka every time they teeter towards the brink of sobriety?

Jose Manuel Martinez, 51, was recently arrested in Yuma, Arizona, after trying to cross the border from Mexico without proper identification.

Tanner calls Mexicans “scum of the earth.” The teenaged Flake, who bragged about being the senator’s son, also participated in an online game using the moniker “ni**er killer.” He referred to Jews as joke stealing thieves.

Nice kid.

Tanner obviously needs some lessons in taking responsibility.  He‘s old enough to be making apologies himself rather than having his Daddy do it for him. “I’m very disappointed in my teenage son’s words, and I sincerely apologize for the insensitivity,” Flake said in a statement. “This language is unacceptable, anywhere.
