    Good news is once they’re out it will be a race as to which one can gain access to an illegal firearm. He will then kill the other one and end up in jail. Equals out to two less thugs. Win/win. :-)

      My nephew is not a thug by no means. You should know all facts before voicing an option. He was on his way home from the store. People need to stop passing judgements when they know nothing.

        Being a racist is never a surprise to me honey. I have lived it. However this is more than a black and white thing at this point. This is about the community. It was oxygen tank in that house and still is. These young men knew that. Travis mother lives right behind that house. They had no regard for her life. It appears they have no regard for everyone else either. What would have happened if a stray bulit hit that oxygen tank? There goes the neighborhood. Yall think this is funny and it’s not. Johnathan has been shot at my them a total of five times. Chesterfield County Police Department has been notified on each incident and allowed it continue. Im appalled at how the Chesterfield County Police Department have chosen to handle this issue. This has been going on for two months. I’m now only thinking of the welfare of my nephew but, the safety of that neighborhood. Yes, these Unfortunate “thugs” as you like to say have no bond. Yet you had better pray they never get a bond.

    Let’s get it straight my nephew was at home when these young ignorant men. Came to murder him. He did not chase them they were after him. Again he was at home. No one has a right to come a open fire on someone’s home it is wrong. You all who live in that area should be so fortunate that they were apprehended. It took long enough. Chesterfield county knew the first time it happens who these young men were. Where they lived who their parents were. Yet they allowed it to get this far. REALLY….Please stop with ignorance you don’t know the have of the pain my family has been through. Enough

      Chantal, I truly wish your nephew a speedy recovery. You are right, there are so many innocent victims of violence. Neighborhoods have to take charge of their lives and run the trouble makers out. Easier said than done I know.

    Looks like the “element” from Richmond is slowly transforming Chesterfield into a county where violence and crime are the norm . Nothing like the peaceful law abiding and great place to live and raise my family now.

      The problem is unequal distribution of wealth, not race. When people figure out that that issue is creating numerous others we will get farther. Also, affirmative action should not be allowed when the minority is the majority. Fix those two problems and we are golden.
