        Life is not a video game!!! This must have really hurt this man to have to shoot someone and killed him. Even though, he had to protect himself which is his right.

    This is the only thing that urban criminals understand. Jail is meaningless to them and no matter how much evidence there is, the ghetto momma will always defend her little deviant.

    I’m not going to celebrate anyone’s death but maybe he shouldn’t have been out attacking innocent people, he won’t be any longer for sure. Sometimes you get exactly what you ask for…

    Good for him! That’s what happens when you play with fire, too bad it doesn’t happen more often.

    Hillary Clinton is tired, very tired of these perp killings. She says way too many of us think we have the right to bear arms and defend ourselves from the criminals.
