      No but they bring it by the police dept to insinuate that the police are murderer and our mayor condone that disrespect to our men and women in uniform.
      All life matter.

      Until BLM address issues like these black and black crime there is no message for me .

      Tax payers run this city , government have no money they use tax payers money so our voices must be heard.
      Tax payers should have being consulted before they bring that debacle on our street.

    no worries..there will be no protest or civil disturbance "as it is called nowadays" because he was killed by his own people . Of course, he was great guy and all he wanted is to play sports for great university hence he was at 4 am at the corner waiting for a ride to the practice (sarcasm)
