What is the relevance of posting his criminal history? Its not like that justifies his death. He was killed, and the only thing that matters is whats in his past. This is irrelevant. To be honest, there is no telling what the police were doing that prompted him to resist arrest. Can you please report the unnecessary force and brutal attacks that the police inflict on people when they are being arrested for nothing.

Why was it necessary to mention his arrest record?? The above mentioned offenses weren't related to the senseless shooting! Anyone can be charged with resisting arrest.

Y was his past included. Did that make it ok for him to be a victim. I didn't like that when I noticed it. I live here in Birmingham and it is a shooting everyday,,it has become a way of life. It's so common that when we hear gun shots we no longer run n hide we just try to see how many mins after we will began to hear sirens, I mean it is rough out here and being single with 3 kids just makes it harder. But I'm determined to get out of the "hood" and raise my kids in saftey. I know crimes can occur any where I just wanna go where it's less likely. With our young men the way they are I'll be single for a min, the one I get to choose from in my generation were raised w/o fathers so u have a lotta lil boy thinking they doing grow man things n r just clueless n stupid looking. Robbing, shooting , sagging jeans, unemployed, thuuu! They can't help it though. How can u expect milk from an orange, just not gonna happen. So ima just take my 3 kids n my God by my side n continue on this journey until things get better. I think I just needed to vent but anyway, stay prayed up live your life the best u can cause we all in the same struggle. Teach n love the kids so we wont be reading bout some dumb ish they did in 10 yrs. nite nite.
