DF does have a good heart. He was the man accused of rape but those charges were dropped so yall don't need to bring it up. Regardless of what he's accused of, he is a good hearted guy. I agree that rape and murder doesn't make you a good person but some don't realize that people are a product of their environment. Everyone that comments on his name being thuggish and say he needs to fry or whatever needs to think about what some feel they need to do to survive. I'm not by any means saying that murder is okay, because its not! I am saying however that maybe the way someone is raised and what they've been through in life sometimes makes them do things they shouldn't. He's 20 yrs old and yeah he should know better, but maybe he doesn't. No one deserves to be killed!! I do kno that Columbus police dept could have arrested him on his warrant way before this so maybe they should have done their job a long time ago and this wouldn't have happened.(that's if DF did it). DF is a product of his environment! He's always been a compassionate person that cares about others and would give the shirt off his back to someone in need. Yeah he has problems like everyone else, but people that don't know him should think about what they say before they say it. Much love DF! Hopefully the Lord will be with you and his Angels will look after you. I will pray for DF every day and hope that this somehow becomes a possitive thing for him. As should all of you. Only God can judge someone and I will pray for all of you who are saying such hateful things! Dejuan is a good father and believes in God. He has two baby's moms not 6. His sons are well takin care of and he is a good person. I will end my comment on this note. My prayers go out to the victim and his family/friends. DF I am praying for you and your family as well. Love always!! I know the real Dejuan Funches!!!!!

I get mad when a person who works hard and doesn't depend on anybody (like the State) gets killed by a thug who preys on others to support his miserable life. Dejuan should be dead instead of the working man.
