    At the most if guilty he will get 10 years and he will still be under 30 when he gets out of Dodds, what a joke, an innocent person gets murdered and the killer still has a long life to live, it’s disgusting, he needs a noose around his neck or the electric chair

    I feel sorry for that guy. Guys like him unfortunately cannot be trained using logic and reason.

    They need to bring back the death penalty . The young people have no regards for human life.

    It was my aunt he killed! He put up his middle finger at the camera the day this picture of him was taken. He does not care. She left home to buy bread and was shot in the head. No amount of jail time can make this better. I’ll never hear her laugh again. Her daughter was driving when she was shot. No amount of jail time will take away the trauma of watching your mother slump in her seat and bleed out not even knowing how or what just happened. She left home for bread!!!!! He needs life.

      Babygirl i feel your pain. She was another mother to me. I miss her dearly….My boyfriend lives infront of where she used to live and everytime i go down there and see the house,my heart sinks and i get an empty feeling. I dont care what no one says…..HE NEEDS TO BE PUT TO DEATH FOR KILLING AN INNOCENT WOMAN THAT IS LOVED BY SOOOOO MANY!! IF this was a family member or a close friend, some of these same people would not be singing the same tune they are singing now. HE NEEDS TO BE HANGED,EXECUTED, DIE BY LETHAL INJECTION… His actions were plain dumb and he should suffer the consequences..SIMPLE!!

    He needs death.. No wonder some ppl take the law in their hands coz ya fine get proper justice for these fools…

  15. RRB May 15, 2017 at 6:54 pm

    Please dont shoot me! But should he be put to death without a trial? What if he didnt do the shooting? Has anyone in your family been arrested wrongfully? Theae are question we need to ask ourselves before throughing him under the bus. If it was my family that died such a terrible death i am not sure how i would be feeling at this point however, lets follow this and see how it ends before we take matters into our own hands.
