  • Well you sound drunk. So u say he was drunk and drug deal so that mean this youngman should have kill him. Get real stop trying take up for someone that a murder. Anything pray that he get his soul right because he going to jail. And I hope he never see daylight.

  • Thank you. Finally somebody with sense speaks up on his behalf. He has not been proved guilty. You never know the real story until you’ve heard it from the people who were actually there. Always have ALL of your facts before passing judgement.. What the media hasn’t told you was that the victim was a drug dealer who became belligerent when drunk. Innocent people too often the wring the wrong time.

  • The headline says “alleged”. How can you condemn a person on an allegation? What happened to innocent until PROVEN guilty? My heart goes out to you and the family of this man but to say that you hope he rots in prison for a crime that we are not positive he committed.
