    So I guess murderers of Black people CAN be found. So can someone send the crew that did it to Chicago? I think they need it.

    Thats good BUT what the f*ck was the purpose of him “snitching” on his brother when he already is doing 17years on an unrelated charge AND he can face up to 10more years AND he is already 41?? I mean what u want to get out of jail even when you 70? You mite as well NOT testify agaisnt your brother & keep it gangsta cuz u kno you knew yall were doing a drive by!! Be a man & take the L, literally, LIFE because you knew what was popping off.

    This wasn’t snitching..

    I’m so tired of hearing about black men and their fixation w/taking another man’s life because you feel disrespected. The man did the right or not. A life was cut short and everyone involved needs to pay for it. I agree w/all that state this man was too damn old to even be wrapped up in something like this. I think his conscience got to him and that’s why he plead guilty. In any case, another dumbass is off the streets. We can all sleep a little better.
