Like the police officer said, he saw nothing suspicious. I understand the family is upset and sad, my heart goes out to them, but don't put the blame on a town cop. He isn't suppose to act unless there is something actually happening. If he didn't see anything, then he didn't. This family is looking for anyone to put this blame on.They should be pointing their finger, solemnly, at the fat skank who had blood in her apartment and tried to cover it up!

Marmet cops get paid not much more than minimum wage, they dont do their jobs most of the time and if there was a call for a certain address then he should have knocked on the door and checked the place out. I would blame them due to the fact if they would have followed throuh maybe Kareem would still be alive. I mean the disturbance they heard could have been a scuffle and kareem could have been there knocked out.

He didn't see anything because he didn't do his damn job and check it out. He was too lazy to get his chicken shit ass out of the car. Afraid he may have to do some actual police work instead of just sitting in his cruiser sleeping.

he saw nothing suspicious cause he didn't get out of the car (there's witnesses to that) his statement was that he knocked on the door, no answer, and walked around the house too. Well if that was true he would of seen the blood outside. Van Gilder is a liar. The couple he talked to when he got there said he NEVER got out of his car. He's a total waste of OUR tax payers dollars. You must be his "Snitch".

I know I've posted many times on her within probably 15 minutes. I apologize for that but it pisses me off that she wouldn't and won't tell them anything. I do not know him or anyone that does know him. I just believehis family deserved to lay him to rest so they could mourn the proper way. And for those of you that said he deserved what he got....you should of told his family that when they were walking thru town the other day,Better yet why don't you tell his children that their daddy deserved to die. You people make me sick!! And for the Hunter family, May God ease your pain and give you peace. I continue to pray for you all.

I feel bad for the guys family I do but I think there hiding the fact that some shady stuff was going on, he was lured there to kidnap him, why would you kidnap some one who lives in the projects you know your not getting any ransome money. The women that lured him there is as guilty if not more than the people who killed him.

100% agree, she's just as guilty as the ones that took his life.

Look most cops around here are dumb, lazy, trigger happy fools, that are working ONLY because they fail to qualify for SSI. If you are being hurt by someone, you had better have a way to defend yourself because a cop is not going to get there in time to help.
