      Excuse Me ! Tanuja Has Not Even Been Proven Guilty , And Its Really None Of Your Business. While You’re Making Your Comments, Make Sure You’re Able To Put You’re Repulsive Feet In Her Family Shoes. Maybe She Covering For A Family Or The Story Was Twisted; You Don’t Really Know. Like The Bible Say : Who Without Sin, Cast The First Stone..
      Thank You And Good Day. Be Blessed.

      Ghettto ? Trash ? Those Words Are Strong. First , Ghetto Is Place Not An Adjective; Therefore That’s Irrelevant. Secondly, Trash is unnecessary.. Why ? Because You Only Know What The News Informed You. Do You Know What Provoked Her… No, Yu Know Absolutely Nothing But What Your Scandal Ears Were Able To Hear. Good Day Sir.

    Geez, every day I see something like this has happened in Memphis. With all the “free”stuff and programs in this city it seems like I see a still see a story similar to this every time I get online or watch the news for this area. It just seems like such a waste for both the victims and the offenders, and for what? $50? Seems like such a waste.

    All black people do is talk. No action. Go call Sharpton or Jessie Jackson. Opps, they already sold you out. Who you gonna call? Just talk talk and march. Never any real action.

    That knockout game got em on edge but I think someone else gotta knock you out Joe. Jack Daniel and Tennessee Whisky don’t count. And your meth mouth herion smoking should make you appreciate gold teeth. And the 8 kids with different dads should give you renewed respect for the mom bc her kids not her dads or another family member. Joe please go on and get a divorce bc you can’t spend the insurance money lock up. IJS
