raise your kids right and they won't die while committing a crime. I have raised two fine young men. They are not criminals. I will point my finger. I have no sympathy for these thugs that walk OUR streets and make them unsafe. Instead of being upset with me, why not be upset with the family that cultivated this thug. Obviously no values were instilled in him. Thank God it was one criminal killing another criminal.
OMG! His family is AMAZING! He was raised in a two parent, middle class family. They ALL were actively involved in the church as well as with his school activities. Sometimes, other influences corrupt the things that a child has learned at home. Don't blame his family AT ALL.

SOME OF YOU ARE IGNORANT, "TRIED OF THE GHETTO" SHUT UP PLEASE, DONT SPEAK ON WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT. GOING TO CHURCH DOESNT MEAN YOU CHANGE OVER NIGHT, TOMMIE WAS A WONDERFUL PERSON AND WAS KIND. HE GOT WRAPPED UP IN THE DRUG GAME WHEN SOCIETY TURED THEIR BACKS ON HIM AFTER ONE MISTAKE, WHEN THE STREETS GAVE HIM A HOME AND NO ONE ESLE WOULD. YES CONGRATS YOU RAISED TWO SONS, SO HAPPY THEY TURNED OUT FINE, BUT AS A MOTHER YOU DONT KNOW THE HALF OF WHAT THEY DID BEHIND YOUR BACK. YES, TOMMIE MADE SOME BAD DECISIONS AND I WAS ALWAYS THE FIRST TO TELL HIM, BUT HE DIDNT DESERVE TO HAVE HIS LIFE TAKEN AWAY. THREE YEARS LATER IT HASNT GOTTEN ANY EASIER SO UNTIL YOU'VE LOST A SON, UNTIL YOU LIVED INT HE GHETTO, AND UNTIL YOUR ONLY OPTION IS TO SEEL DRUGS SHUT UP!!!

I will never understand why people put themselves in these situations. Sounds like they both are getting what they deserved.
