    It fucking sucks when assholes talk without knowing who they are talking about. The man that was killed was a good man and did not deserve to have his life taken.

    A lot of you that are talking didn't even know him.. He was a dust head who beat the mother of his child and used to threaten to kill her. He sold drugs most of his life & was on dust last night when it happened.
