      LOL! I thunked Bo and Luke and Daisy Duke looked different than these three. They must’ve transracegendered themselves to avoid the paparazzi…

    Yet again we see where living by “thug rules” takes you. PRISON or the CEMETERY. In this case three people head on down to the Grayrock Hotel and one is dead. Why? Because someone chose to use a weapon instead of being a MAN and walking away.

    Enjoy your stint in prison. I’m sure whatever way you were “disrespected” was worth all those years you are about to lose.

    There is no possible way that our justice system will give you what you all deserve, but I have faith somone will. Hopefully that person makes your stay in prison extra short and saves us taxpayers some money from wastes of life like you BUMS.

    ……I had to scroll all the way to the bottom of the front page to find any white people that had commited a crime and it was only a theft?

      Black Lives Matter ONLY when it’s a white shooter. THEN everyone is up in arms. Black on Black shooting are so commonplace that people put their blinders on and completely ignore the issue at hand.
