This is interesting. Supposedly he was "getting out of that lifestyle", and had been out of the gang scene for months. Yet the article says that a gang website is calling for retaliation. Hmm. Why would they do that for a non-member?
He was always viewed as a leader. You cant control what others do or say. You can never say that you say him edge on gang violence. He always tried to end it

How the heck did he even get into the bar? I am pretty sure it's 21 and older there. Oh and nice friggen mug shot of the "good boy" with two baby mamas at the ripe age of 19. I am sick of this crap and the liberal media making this gang banger into this pious young man. Oh, and he wasn't even raised by his own mama either, so really how do you turn out decent starting out like that?
You dont even know him. You never knew what he went through. You have no right to judge him or his mother. She lost a son Do you not have any morals.

it's really sad he went the way he did. I never even got a chance to know him as an adult. Hopefully my other young cousins and my nephew willtake heed and be more respectful of life.

Woooow im just gon start by saying i cant even believe the comments i'm seein on here. i was just bored on google.com and typed in darryl name just to see what pop up and this what i get. dont yall got anything else to do? unlike these cowards on here i posted my name on my comment so yall can know who sayin this and those who really know darryl know who i am. first off i aint gon get on here and pretend my cousin was a saint cause i know he wasnt but he wasnt the heartless person who some of yall makin him out to be.Although darryl was apart of a "gang" he still had a heart. yeah he ran the streets and repped bemis all day wit his boys but who are any of yall to judge him. my brother is with the same hood so i know about them and yall take this gang stuff to the heart like they the mafia or somethin and they takin out people every other day. these boys didnt use to be like this, they used to just fight and call it a day but now i guess fightin aint enough no more. meanwhile for those who downin him cause he had a record and two kids and he was raised by his aunt and grandmother yall betta be lucky yall internet gangstas and wouldnt dare say that with ya face showin. His granny and his aunt took good care of him. And dont act like these lil rich kids aint got issues too cause yall got the same problems and some even worse so quit the bull. Yall need to let my cousin rest in peace and quit judgin him before yall end up in hell where yall suppose he's at.But no my cousin is living worry free in heaven hes a angel lookin down on all his loved ones FYI so be mad about that, cause he sho aint!!! P.S i was at the club with his babymama the night he was murdered and yall can quit runnin it about her too cause they kids is well tooken care of and they can go out if they want,and it was 18 and over for you know it all's that was runnin yall mouth!!!!!!!!!R.I.P DARRYL DOMINIC THOMPKINS I LOVE YOU NOW AND FOREVER

so fIrst of all Darryl Dominic Thompkins is my cuzzin and yall dont know shit about him those of you that have bad things to say about him. you need to have more respect than that. but you will reap what u sow. he has two kids that he took well care of and yes he has made some bad choices in life but havent we all. he did not deserve to die. so f*** all yall that has negative things to say about him personally

RIP DARRYL DOMINIC THOMPKINS

FIRST OF ALL, NONE OF YOU HAVE ANY RIGHT TO JUDGE ANYONE AND THEIR LIFE STYLE. YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HOW THEY GREW UP AND WHAT THEY'VE BEEN THROUGH. IF YOU NEVER LIVED A CERTAIN LIFE STYLE THAT SOMEBODY ELSE DID, THEN YOU NEVER WILL UNLESS YOU TAKE A WALK IN THEIR SHOES. A YOUNG BOY LOST HIS LIVE, AND MANY PEOPLE HAVE LOST A LOVED ONE. NO MATTER WHAT YOUR VIEWS ARE ON THE SITUATION, NO ONE DESERVES TO FEEL THAT PAIN OF LOSE AND WHAT YOU'R WRITING ON HERE IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE ANYTHING IN SOCIETY BUT MAKE PEOPLE ANGRY AND HURT MORE. IF YOU BELIEVE IN GOD, YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER, NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO JUDGE BUT GOD, SO UNLESS YOU HAVE SOMETHING GOOD TO SAY, LIKE WE'LL KEEP HIS FAMILY IN OUR PRAYERS, OR RIP, YOU SHOULD SAY NOTHING AT ALL. R.I.P DARRYL THOMPKINS, WE LOVE YOU.
