I grew up with Amos and he was a very nice person....funny...outgoing...a nd a go getter.
I can't see why he would pull a gun on police officers...I really want to see the outcome of the investigation..

This is just unbelievable. Amos was a good person. Praying for the family, may the lord bless you. No family deserves to have something like this happen to their family and this is a family that has had too much tragedy. RIP Amos. One Love my friend.

amos was from one of the most loving christian families you knew. he was a kind person. i know his family and i will bet the cops were wrong. he was in his mothers car. but they never contacted anyone that he was dead. they set up a scenario that is why they didnt contact his family. pulled gun from his waistband after running. hard to run with a gun in your waistband. sounds kinda movieish to me. the cops are killers. we need protection from the police. all of them has emotional issues. a lot of them use drug.s i know some who bought crack back in the day. i hate cops. they are evil. and have mental issues.

I knew Amos for about 7 years and to turn on the tv to see he as been killed by police is shoking. He was a good guy and had a lot going for him . I pray for his mom and sister rip Amos!
