This is my cousin. We grew up together in New York and I can't believe he's gone. My heart aches, my head hurts, my eyes wont stop crying over this great loss and this foolish cause of death. Why!!!!!!!! Jermain aka Jah was such a good hearted person. Full of personality and always good for a joke making us laugh. Jermain you will be greatly missed! I love you!!!

I am truely saddened that Jah gone and to know that Poo is responsible breaks my heart even more. I can not grasp the fact that this true. Poo was my first little boyfriend in the days of hide and seek, Jah was my high school crush. We were all friends in adulthood, all of our lives. I will never understand, why this happened. I will be praying for both families. I can't imagine what Jimmy must be going through. Jah will be truly missed.

The Lamdmark needs to be closed down. The place is know for nothing but drugs and hookers. In fact that whole area of South Elm between Vandalia and Meadowview alonf with the same section of Randleman road is all the same. All the hotels in this sqaure are all the same, frugs, prostitutes and who knows what else. And to think this is all going on under the nose of the GPD who with a sub station less than a mile from this whole square can not stop this behavior. The only way we will ever clean up Greensboro is to first start by cleaning up the GPD. Hopefully with the new Mayor things will change but i have no faith in the newly appointed muslim city manager.

A fitting end huh? "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone!" Show no compassion and none will be shown. They were both good people in spite of bad choices.

It was only the grace of God that me and so many others got out of the that lifestyle before we had a tragic end, nothing great in us maybe luck, not so long ago that could have been me. I left the street life got and education and now am a productive citizen. I made it from where they were not an easy journey either so maybe that's why I can relate to them, and I knew them both personally. But I guess you always walked the straight and norrow, you must have to be in a judgemental position. We pay for every deed we do in this life and the next, I have drank from many bitter cups of my own pouring and I thank God I did not die in the mist of all of my mess. I am just sorry this brother (JAH) won't get that chance. I don't think it is fitting for anyone to have the life snuffed out of them, especially at the hands of a so called friend!

Wow! Nipsy and bob white I can't believe non believers of Christ still exist... Clearly u don't know The Lord by ur comments because u spit them out so easily. U must think God values ur life more than others? Or do u believe God made u n not them?what big balls u have. He that is without sin cast the first stone...... Just a thought sometimes The Lord allows things to happen as an eye opener for others. Don't be so judge mental havnt u heard God loves us all the same! Bless u all n the families

It's a truly sad story, but to the point some others made about the Landmark...I can't argue. It's DRUGS, DRUGs, DRUGS, 24/7 with a good smattering of prostitution (some of it teenage runaway girls that truckers and traveling businessmen get their jollies off with). I'm amazed the place is still open but I can't really blame the police department, there budget has been slashed and they are understaffed as it is. Also, what can they really do? Most of the business goes down inside, they do make periodic patrols thru the parking lots at night though.
