Stay off MARTA unless you are carrying a weapon. This loss of this bright young man is all of Georgia's loss. He was killed by gangsta punks that were envious of his IQ and his abilities to succeed in life. These murdering punks should be shot on site.

MARTA police have proven they are to busy trying to take guns away from legal permit holders than to take the time to protect the people that ride MARTA. This is what their boss told them to do.

We heard so much about the incident involving the assault at the Cracker Barrel. Yet I have heard very little about this hate crime. Someone who was doing the right things in life murdered by someone who don't have a clue what the right thing is. God save the second amendment.

The big question is why and how did a convicted felon obtain a handgun ? Why do all the "boys" feel the need to cary a gun in the first place? To rob people is why ! I am all for the right to bear arms, but we don't need to be packing handguns like in the old "Wild West" ! If the victim had been carrying a gun, there most likely would have been 2 people dead ! Maybe more with bullets going astray ! I regularly use MARTA and go to the Fulton County Courthouse, so a weapon is not permitted ! Not even Mace or Pepper Spray ! So, a very sharp pencil in my pocket can go right through some attackers throat or into their eye !! I don't wear a watch or carry more than $10 in my wallet ! I wear my worst looking clothes to appear homeless and the thugs usually don't bother me since I look destitute !! It is a shame that I have to go to such extreme, but I prefer not to be a target !! And, I don't drive the Rolls to the MARTA station either ! My beat up junkyard pickup truck does the trick !

My heart and prayers go out to the young man who was killed family members. Maybe this will spur some action by the East Point and the MARTA police to make all of safer !

Moving Afros Rapidly Through Atlanta...MARTA is scary! Pay the extra $15.00 to park downtown and drive!
