      Gulf of mexico? Benja lived in mason long as I’ve ever known. Any one stop to think creviston may have not been that great of a human if he was associated with the type of ppl that gangland assassinate other ppl? Pretty sure everyone is ignoring a meth habit or something… you dont just get shot by tweakers for no reas ok n, black ppl commit senseless murder all the time but I think that Benja may have had a reason. Not saying it’s a good reason or anything. Just that you cant get shot by tweakers if you avoid tweakers.
