  3. This is so sad while this young man trying to make an honest living they were planning for him this is a cold and well calculated murder I do hope that the people who say that is only one set of people doing crime in this country is taking note. It is our mind not our colour I feel for his mom I do hope that they are found guilty. regardless of race we have to come as one body and find a solution to bring our youths back on tract ; they have lost their way.
