Im glad he's coming back. People are so bios because of the things they hear, but vasega is such a good person, and if those judgmental, ignorant people really got to know them, they'd see that he has a great heart, and a loyal one. He's not a thug and never have been. And this time around they will see the truth cuz innocent people should not spend their life in prison because of their last name's reputation.

There are too many people locked up behind bars for crimes they did not commit and, in Tili's case, the only probable cause I came across is the deceased and Tili's older brother getting into a fight. Where's the evidence? I dont see how Tili is convicted for murder seeing that there is no EVIDENCE but, if you can bring it to the table, let me know. This case sounds like a racial and stereotyped case seeing that he is Polynesian who holds a well known last name. For those of you who dont know what polynesians are, they are tanned (close to afican americans) and naturally beautiful.
Thugs? I wouldn't call someone a name that you dont know the meaning of so, let's keep it on a low low.

There are a lot of convicted people in jail that really didn't do the crime. A LOT! the justice system is not perfect.. But order the transcripts, review the case.. And then make that judgment instead of being bios.. that IGNORANCE.. well, that'll be if you didn't know any better, so it's actually STUPIDITY!

Everyone knows he did it. He is better off in jail or he will just kill someone else. Only fools would believe he is not a killa.

And u sound like a stupid ignorant foo. Prolly had a troubled childhood or something to be the one that believes everything he hears.. But the news paper never said he did it... he got convicted of it from a confused jury. When u read in the paper the next go round, maybe your pathetic views will change. Obviously there's some doubt on his conviction, or he wouldn't be back. Spend your extra money on more education.. There's people all over the world that's been falsly convicted.. Lawsuits going on right now for it.

Oh yeah, and Jr. Tilli is not a robber, ooops, I mean was a robber.

Fine let him out. He will be involved in another shooting, either him shooting someone or someone shooting him. Its not the lifestyle I would choose but hey that's me.

I bet the murder victim's family does not agree that he is such a good person. Maybe people should not try and be someone they're not just to build up a reputation for their name on the street.

The only thing he can rob now is a bar of soap. But he can smile after he bends over to pick it up. Knowing him, he will stay bent over for 30min.

Where did you read he robbed anything? I missed it but, if you can, please, do tell! As for the rest of your statement, let's becareful of what we say! What we do and say about others will haunt us whether we like it or not so, please, refrain from your homosexual statements! Your child, if you are near being a parent might one day come home after being bent over and then what? ha ha ha....your words will choke you then but, let's not wait till then!
