That's so sad. I hope that poor boy is able to get past this and make a life for himself. Just another story of how little we are really protected and served in this town.

Such a tragic story. I'm a young black male that have been living in camden for 8 years. I've been reading on topix for years. It just amazes me how much hatred, racism, and injustice that goes on here. This was a time for the department to show the city what quality, honesty, LAW ABIDING officials we protecting the city, and they blew it. Whoever interogates the drug dealers maybe shoud have talk with him because they haven't ruined not a one of those cases.

Between stuff like this and the West Memphis Three, I think that Arkansas needs to consider rounding up all of its police officers and killing them with napalm.

This has been going on for years...Remember when the little four month old girl think her last name was Beck died? Her mother was first a suspect in her death but then police found out the mom's aunt gave the baby sleeping pills and the aunt was arrested...only to have the great prosecutor Jamie Pratt release her and she was never tried or charged. The police Demone Gray as well as Roland Johnson was FURIOUS they did their jobs but the prosecutor didn't do his and this child died in the mom killed her or the aunt killed her...the point is nothing was ever done about this poor innocent child...sad

Thank God! Finally. A Camden police scandal that I didn't cause. It's a good thing too. Daddy's almost broke after I made a mess of the Eagle's Nest. Who's laughing now? Damn you all.
