If he was a friend, then why didn't you stop him from fighting his woman? No woman need to be mistreated and knock around. I blaim his parent. No daught his daddy wasn't around to make sure he would grow up to be a real man. She is not the blaim, who wouldn't defend themself. Look around, this type is common and we all know why.

these two people also sound like they know each other, and IF that's the case they need to talk in person or on the phone instead of airing this out over the web.

I knew David since I was in like the 8th grade. Im not gon front he was always a ladies man I don't know whether this is the reason this chick did this to him or something else I was reading that he was beating on her. Well as far as I've known him he wasn't as violent as whoever the person is was trying to make him sound. Regardless of the situation that's no reason to go stabbing someone. If it was that serious why not just let go and move on with ya life. The person who posted that was very ignorant and made absolutely no sense. Think about if that was a family member of yours. The girl needs to go to jail for a really long time cuz this is just crazy. My condolences go out to David's entire family as well as friends. He's still here in each and every one of you. Dave you'll be missed what's crazy is that you just hit me up the day b4 this crazy chick did what she did to you. Im just sad things had to turn out the way it did.

Okay I'm not gonna say my name but I met Diamond twice....I worked with David for two months and yeah he was a ladies man!! He was mad sweet........our relationship isn't all that important however he meant alot to me and the fact that he is gone is hurting me and making my stomach hurt. I remember talking to him at work about our daughters......I feel bad that she will not get to see her father!! However let me clarify something.....I don't think David was an abuser...I don't think he beat Diamond. I also dont' think that Diamond should go to jail for the rest of her life. The loss of David is tragic however having her go to jail forever is not going to bring him back?? Why trade a life for a life?? I am praying for David and his family however I am praying even more for Diamond. To take a life she must be going through.....she is not a crazy bitch....she's a hurt female who needs mad prayer for.....so when you have a moment of silence for David keep Diamond in mind also!!

Dag s0n, why you??? S00n as a young black male try 2 escape da h00d to live a better life, something always seem 2 bring them down some way some how... Black was from da same state as me. Living n da city of newark is a hard ass struggle.. But mi opinion is he got away for one reason and one reason only. Now look, s0me BS dun happened.. Im s0 sorry this happened 2 u scoob.. U would of been one of da hoodest educated black man in Nwk NJ. U def kould of made a difference.... RIP mi ni****, and u would always be missed.. God Bless ya faM, and see u when I get there....

I agree we need to get it together but how can you use such foul language and then mention God in the same statment? Both families need prayer. God loves her as much as he loved David.It's hard for us to understand that concept but God doesn't stop loving us when we do wrong. Hurting people hurt people. Those who are close to the victim I feel for you all; my heart really goes out for you. The person who committed this heinous act must have experienced some serous loss for her to lose her head and do such a thing. Pray for both and let people know that the end is near and we need to confess and get it straight.
