    I just dont understand how the last 2 guys charged with murder dont know threir rights and then say they did not kill anyone. Stupid is stupid but ignorance is not to be tolerated. When they say I dont understand put a bullet in their fricken head and save everyone from paying for these dumb f**ks. They are a waste to human life. Save us tax payers. Bullet is only 50 cents.

    It’s a shame that her son has to go on with life without his mom regardless of the circumstances. It’s a shame that her family has lost a daughter and sister. Sympathy and compassion are rare traits in the comments on this website and that’s a shame too.

      As I said, it is a shame that a pretty young girl had to die like that. What are we going to do about these import thugs in our city?

    And some people can’t understand why the ratio of African American to Caucasian people in prison is not balanced.

      She was his niece and owed him money for drugs and didn’t have the money so he shot her as a lesson to others. How sad, one import shooting another over drugs.

    F**KEN import, all they want is white meat and drugs. When they dont get what they want they beat you and shoot your white ass. They will also make the white women the blame for everything and try to ruin her life. They are just scum that got run out of the Detroit and Chicago areas,

      I don’t know the story, but I am trying to imagine the scenario, where a 19 year old girl would be over at this dirty old mans apartment. Drugs perhaps?

      You couldn’t be more accurate with this statement. They certainly don’t do anything to help get rid of the stereotypes that they have. And wonder why they are locked up so disproportionately, probably because you are savages who can’t function in a modern society.
