This is a very sad individual. How can you take something that DOESN"T belong to you, We have lost 4 family memmber to brutal,senseless crimes and each time my family had to go through and re-live over and over again. My older brother Richard Hickman was murdered in Janurary 2, 1992,shot in both leg,blead out, no one was convicted, My son Maurice Hickman was murdered in June 10,2004 by stab wound of 16 times 7 inch sword, My nephew Jamarrco Hickman was murdered with a gunshot to the jaw in july 5,2005 his mother had the ventilator removed and now my first cousin Micheal Roddy murdered by a gun shot. and his daughter the mother of small children shot. All for what?(WHY?) STOP THE VIOLENCE.....May JUSTICE prevail

I am sorry for the loss of your family memebers. But this stuff has got to end. I am often surprised by people that cannot believe this is happening. Blacks have been killing each other for decades and we get shocked and go to funerals dressed to the nines, in our gold and fake hair. O have been to ESL and people spend more on cars, hair, nails, jewelry, and fake designer clothing that making repairs to their homes. I have seen sheets up to windows of some of the homes, but will see a Chrysler 300 parked out front. ESL is falling down around the people living there and they and their worthless leadership still have not figured out that getting involved the education of our children is the only way to end the crap! I am sick to death to hear about yet another black man killing another black man. We need to get involved in our children's lives before they become someone we fear. An, when I say "we", I mean the fathers as well. I am so sorry to hear this, it truly breaks my heart. I live in a black community where people, are making a difference. They have made a covenant with the community and God to not allow another Black child, male or female to fall into this pit of "bling", and to enforce personal responsibility and personal accountability. May God Bless and keep you.

Thanks for your sympathy, but this was not black on black crime. This was a white man that killed my only child that left behind 7 childrenm and 2 grand- children. He was a good son he worked as a manager at McDonald's to help provide forhis children. The man did not serve enough time for Maurice's death,,,,he will be relaeased in 4 years. the system lied about 20 years ......Why will this man be let back out on the streets, IF my son killed him which I don't condone violence but Maurice would have possible been given life or the death penalty. The people is still over ruled by the color of you skin and not the crime. May God have mercy on the souls of those who have decided to take matters in their hands. I miss my son dearly and if I could take back that horrible night on which he last said he loved me.

Auntie Nadine I can remember it like it was yesterday! I can recall the time of day when I was notified Maurice had gone on home to be with god I couldn't believe it! I was enraged ready to fight now his sons mother and all! But truthfully the cycles continues! I will be glad when these young black men put dwn the weapons and stop acting like cowards! What happened to the days when the most would happen would be u would see the person on Tuesday of this week and fight and then naybe see them on thusday of next week and fight and continue it until you all were both tired and just shook hands and walked away! But atleast both of you lived to see another day! S.I.P Cuzzin Maurice gone but never forgotten!
