HOW DARE YOU SAY MY SISTER DESERVES TO BE DEAD BECAUSE SHE DIDNT WANT AN 18 YEAR RELATIONSHIP WITH THAT PSYCHOTIC INDIVIDUAL. JUST FROM READING YOUR COMMENTS, YOU APPEAR TO BE A YOUNG SIMPLE MINDED INDIVIDUAL. BUT YOU GIVE ME A MINUTE BECAUSE I GOT A LOT TO SAY TO YOU.

EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN OPINION ABOUT THIS SITUATION, THE BOTTOM LINE IS HE HAD NO RIGHT TO TAKE MY SISTER'S LIFE. SHE DID WHAT SHE THOUGHT WAS BEST FOR HER. YOU SAID HE WAS LIKE AN UNCLE TO YOU BUT HE WAS A NIGHTMARE TO ME AND MY FAMILY. YOU SAY HE WAS A GOOD PERSON, GOOD PEOPLE DON'T KILL THEMSELVES. IN MY HEART I KNOW I HAVE TO FORGIVE HIM BUT I WILL NEVER FORGET THE PAIN HE HAS CAUSED TO ME AND MY FAMILY. OBVIOUSLY HE HAD MENTAL ISSUES ANYWAY!!! SO REGARDLESS IF IT WAS MY SISTER OR NOT HE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE TAKEN SOMEBODY ELSE'S LIFE EVENTUALLY. I WILL LEAVE YOU WITH THIS THOUGHT MARIA, WHAT IF IT WAS YOUR SISTER HE HAD MURDERED, WOULD HE STILL BE LIKE AN UNCLE TO YOU? "PROBABLY NOT" !!!!!

how dare i say that?..but how dare your cousin tell my uncle to rot in hell!!!!...Simple minded huh?....she was doing what was best for her huh??? If she was responsible enough to perform unprotected sex...she should be reponsible enough to deal with the consequences...but, she didnt...she mad a selfish decision...and i never said what he did was right...al im saying is dont get judgemental...cause if thats the case we can do that too..no one knew exactly what was goin on in either of their minds or what was said at the scene..and thats that...im tired of this..argueing online...i got better things to do..everyones entitled to their own opinion and no one has to agree...good luck to u and ur family in life...

That is the craziest thing I have ever heard in my life. There is no excuse for him taking her life. You feel sorry for him, he made the choice to die, that young lady had no choice. You are messed up in the head. May he rot in hell for his Mortal Sin. After reading your post, it seems the entire family has mental health issues.

My Sorrows goes out to the Burkley and Mcgoo family, as well as Jermaine's FAMILY. I knew Raven and her older brother. She was a bright, intelligent, sweet individual. Knowing this, I feel she had a feeling about her forecomings with this guy. She did what she had to do. The decision to bare a child lies within the woman. For whatever decision she made, she has to live with it---Her and her God. Jermaine got caught up with more than just losing a child. I feel he was infatuated with her, and would have tried to hurt her for reasons more than what the facts are based on. A woman that beautiful is hard to let go and some people get caught up in that physical attraction and can't cope with rejection. I do believe it had more to do with an abortion. He took that gun up there for a reason, it was premeditated. I hope to all who blog understand the realities of infatuations and realize if something seems to good to be true, it normally is! God Bless you all.
