I can guarantee you he will never be a security guard in this city ever again. The investigation is not over in this case and don't be surprised if the DA files murder charges.

Aspiring rapper? I'd feel bad if he was an aspiring doctor, or something useful.

At least he was doing something productive. You coming on here saying "who cares" proves your a lessor quality of a person compared to the victim. Your a fool for even stating that, and I bet you know it. Who cares about people like you?

What is this crap about him being unarmed? Like the person who felt threatened enough by the guy that he had to shoot him had a chance to frisk him or something. What a joke. I don't know the story, but being unarmed doesn't mean that you can't threaten someones life. You can knock someone to the ground and beat them to death with kicking their head or stomping on their throat...

He was ambitious enough to make money off his own talents. Something many in Allentown can't say. I don't think he or his family deserves for a clown like you to come on here and try to be funny by insulting him.

Good thing I don't give a tiny rat's @$$ what you think. Where's the proof that he was making money off his "talents" anyway ? Every unemployed loser who can recite a child's poem to music (without really having to sing) is an "aspiring rapper". My neighbor is an unemployed house painter. I guess that makes him the next Michelangelo.

There is plenty enough proof that all he wanted to do is make money off what he was good at. He was working on a record deal. Like a lot of other people he came from nothing, but he had the ambition to better his and his families life for the better. He got killed for no legal reason and deserves justice, not a CLOWN like you insulting him for whatever reason. I'm not gonna argue with your ignorance.

"I'm not gonna argue with your ignorance."
Yet you posted again since you said that. LOL !! Look, show me the money. Show me anything that says he was making some from his "rapping". Then take the time to look up the word "aspiring". Nevermind, I'll do it for you...
Aspiring:
"Directing one's hopes or ambitions toward achieving something"
Yeah, it basically means "a wannabe".
Like I said, another unemployed loser who can recite a child's poem to music without having to actually sing .

You wart suckers need a cause. Every kid from the hood who can speak thinks they are an artist (rapper). Listen to the lyrics, you fool. What was he doing bangin on the door for at that time of the night? Thirsty for some more Kool Aide?

Wart suckers? Is that how you redneck hillbillies talk in VA? Not every "kid from the hood" thinks they can rap. And 95% of the ones who do don't have the ambition to make records and videos like Micheal Randolph did. Who cares if he was banging on the door or not, that doesn't give a security guard the right to shoot an unarmed man in the back killing him. Thirsty for Kool Aide......your a fkn clown like the one who posted before you.

LOL !! You're a real internet warrior aren't you ? Is this what you do on here ? Act like a tough guy and keep saying the same things over and over that you can't prove ? You're as full of sh|t as your wannabe rapper buddy. I still see nothing to indicate he made any money from his "talent". I'm sure I never will, but you'll no doubt flap your mouth about it again anyway.

I knew the kid back in 2004 when he was 15. The kid was a punk talked shit to everyone and acted like he was a gangsta. No one deserves to die.but the way he acted it would of happened on the street eventually.
