  1. How the heck would you know? If you know he didn’t do it go to the police and tell them who did. Oh, wait! People around here don’t know ‘nuttin’ ’bout ‘nuttin’.

  2. he killed my cousin no doubt about tht and she saying he didnt was u their he killed him cuz he has i dont give a fuck face but we got justice for a good cousin friend father and son he broke our hearts now the system finto lay him down for life trust and believe tht

  3. Ghetto, ghetto ghetto. Ignorance at it’s best. There’s a dead person, and another awaiting trial,and the best support that could be given to the parties in pain is shit talking each other? There is no respect for life anymore. No wonder no one takes us seriously. My condolences to the family in morning, and godspeed to the person in custody. If innocent, let it come to light, if guilty, man up and pay what you owe. Much ….. nevermind.
