I think that the muder that took place at Double Quick was in self defense. Paul had been picking on Leon for several days. Paul also had just had a fight with a man and beaten him really bad. I hate what happen to Paul but when you step in mess it won't be long before you fall in it.

I LIKE PAUL & LEON, BUT I HATE IT FOR BOTH OF THEM. I'M SURE SOMEONE WAS WITH LEON WHEN HE WENT TO GET THE GUN OR THAT GAVE HIM THE GUN, THEY SHOULD BE ARREST AS WELL. EVERYBODY THAT KNOWS LEON KNOW THAT HE WILL GET SOMETHING TO FIGHT WITH BECAUSE OF HIS WEIGHT AND SIZE. SOMEONE SHOULD HAVE STOP HIM FROM GETTING THAT GUN. I THINK WHO EVERY GIVE HIM THE GUN WANTING HIM TO KILL PAUL BECAUSE THEY WHERE SCARED OF HIM AS WELL & THEY WASN'T MAN TO DO SO, SO THEY USED FRUITTY MAN TO DO THERE DIRTY WORK,BECAUSE THEY KNOW HOW HE GETS WHEN HE IS MAD. I HOPE HE GETS HIMSELF TOGETHER WHILE HE IS IN JAIL & HAVE ABETTER LOOK AT LIFE WHEN HE RETURNS BACK TO THE WORLD, IF HE RETURE BACK TO THE WORLD. I FEEL BAD FOR PAUL FAMILY, ESPECIAL HIS KIDS & HIS GRANFATHER. PAUL HAD HIS WAYS BUT HE WAS A GREAT AND FUN PERSON TO BE AROUND & I KNOW HIS FAMILY MISSES HIM. OUT OF ALL HIS WRONG HE HAD A LOT OF RIGHT IN HIM, AND THAT WILL BE MISSED FROM FAMILY & FRIENDS. WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO REALIZE IS YOU CAN FIGHT UNTIL EVERYONE PASSES OUT, BUT WHEN YOU KILL A PERSON THAT OVER FOR THAT PERSON AND THERE FAMILY & FRIENDS. PAUL WILL NEVER COME BACK, BUT THERES A CHANCE LEON WILL COME BACK TO HIS FAMILY & FRIENDS. KILLING IS WRONG WHEN IT HAPPENS LIKE THAT. I WILL PRAY FOR BOTH FAMILYS FOR THERE LOVE ONES.

Black on Black Crime. Makes the White Man Smile Every Time. When will Blacks figure it Out. The White Man does Not have to Kill Us Any Longer. Just Give Us Guns and Stand Back and Watch. I feel We are Waging a war we can't Win within The Black Community. There is No Family Structure. Our Kids have Kids. Our Kids are Allowed to Roam the streets Late at night. We do not value education. We Are, Simply Put, Trifling. I grew up in Ruleville. I attended Ruleville Schools. I am very familiar with the Double Quick. It has always been a troublesome spot for years now. I do not Like how they let the young Men hang around the store. Always. Constantly. And Now Look. Two black Men are Lost instead of One. That Is the tragedy. One will soon be off to Prison and One buried.

its not selve defence when the man go and get a gun. when you leave the scene and come back with a gun its not self defence. SO GET YOUR FACTS CORRECT.

hey, but for those of you who dont now the story you really cant say who was in the right or wrong! you dont know what had happened that night to even say mario(my father) yes my father, was in the wrong, just because he is bigger! i feel that no one really know what happened but the people who were in court, which were none of you! i agree with FAMILY comment, i feel when a person leaves the scene that person is not defending himself especially when MARIO was minding his business and fruitty man called he back...and it went from there! to make a long story short, never assume or go by what you hear. it gets you no where!
