    This is why you shouldnt sell drugs because the law doesnot protect your belongings if your ENGAGED in The illegal sale of drugs… Unfortunatly we have another young black man whos life is thrown away for trying to rob Narcotics! … While the victim (white male) was a pistol toting drug dealer registered or not we all Know you cannot use a firearm in the commission of a felony the system is rigged and not meant to protect african anericans… Look up your laws and see that this man has been tried injustly the guy waS shot several times for trying to steal something that the law does not protect. This is not pre-meditated Nor Can they charge him for robberey 2 wrongs do not make anything Right! Comming from a student in criminal justice i see faults in this case but whats done is done hes DEFINITELY involved im thinking ACCOMPLICE to Murder…
