    Isn’t this the same guy that “accidentally” shot his toddler son a while back? Sad excuse for a human being.

    Welcome to Richmond.

    This guy is so young, such a shame that someone can be ignorant in today’s society, to consider murder. I don’t know this guy, but I would bet he lacks education.

      There is a difference between education and indoctrination. This punk is very well indoctrinated and now he can begin his undergrad studies at stereotype university.

      You’re kidding right? If I didn’t think you were kidding, I would say first, lack of education is not an excuse for being a convicted felon, second, not an excuse for carrying a gun while a convicted felon, and third, murdering someone. Thank God this person (I won’t use the word Man, because he isn’t one) is off the streets for now, and hopefully for a long time.

    Governments not doing well on Controlling Guns of Convicted Felons.
