      People always want to talk and the news always want to put out a story before they get the detail this situation came from irresponsible. Adults using guns to handle situations and a innocent child got shot so before a person comment make sure they know the story .

        You have to realize that comments are made prior to more information being released. These stories are always “developing” and what they chose to tell us may not be all the elements to the story. So stop getting so worked up over who’s commenting and realize that there’s a problem among Memphis citizens. Drive down Chelsea or Thomas right now, there’s Bae Bae Kinds in the streets and mom’s on their backs..only in Memphis does this ignorance exist!
