      You need counseling. Seek help! This story is about the loss of life not the murdering b@st@rds who did the killing. So, by your case, every person of color should be shot right?

    NWA- you just don’t get it. Most of us law-abiding citizens are tired of the same punks committing the same old crimes. I’m sure these losers don’t usually keep to themselves, and we know the criminal justice system is a joke. Other than their families, no one will mourn the loss
