it makes no sense whatsoever for those cops to have shot lorenzo that many times....if all they wanted to do was "disarm" him they could have aimed for a less vital body part...and where is the "alleged" weapon??? bunch of shi*

that shit is messed up... they ain't no sence in all that mess.... they suppose to be the people that solve crimes not make them... i thought they were not suppose to "pull the trigger" until in danger... they just wanted him down and thats messed up and they should be charged and just think about it that was a young man that has a family and good friends.... this world is already loosing to many people as it is.... RIP Zo

RIP ZO, YOU ARE DEEPLY MISSED. THIS IS A TYPE OF POLICE BRUTALITY, THE ODDS WERE EXTREMELY UNFAIR AND NOW WE HAVE TO SAY GOOD-BYE TO ANOTHER BROTHER. I HOPE WE CAN PUT THIS TYPE OF UNJUSTICE TO AN END. BLACK POWER! MAY THE ANCESTORS WATCH OVER HIS LOVED ONES.

You guys ever wondered what happened to the victims that your poor little Zo robbed and took their hard earned money? Its strange that we yell that police "murdered" him, but what about the victims and the families who money was taken by Zo?? My opinion, im not a police officer, but he shouldn't have ran, I was always taught not to run from the police. Those who live by the sword, shall die by the sword. Yea, Zo, I am sure you would be missed by your families and friends but not by the merchants and law abiding citizens you stole from. I was robbed (strong arm)and I was beat senseless and all YOU took was $50.00 I still have the marks and bruises that you or your counter parts done. I can't even walk the street for fear. All in all,I forgive you man ... All your troubles are over. So for all you cop bashing people, grow up and look at the other end. The Dekalb police officer who was there to render aid to me was helpful on finding out who i was and trying to get all the information while I was laying there bleeding to death. Because of punks like Zo. Next time it could be you who is being robbed at gunpoint. Will you protect them then? He shouldn't have ran if he had nothing to hide. Served him right.

The lack of grammar on this site and the fact that someone actually said they are part of the New Black Panther Party is interesting since this thread leads you to the TRUE BPP and their thoughts of the imposters.

And now your opinions. Look into what people call themselves and quit following blindly. Also, do some research into the art of shooting, period. target shotting let's say. Go to a range and take a class, ask people who shoot for a living there and the likelyhood of shooting a particular body part from a distance away.

I just found out about my friend Lorenzo and I can barely stand the thought of a world without him. They murdered him. His sweet mom and girlfriend and baby will suffer for it. I am white, but I too say this is a rotten racist world. Lorenzo was a good man.

I KNEW LORENZO, you obviously DID NOT. He did not steal. He was kind to me and to my children---I am a middle aged white woman and he treated me with respect. He never asked me for anything and was always helpful. You are nothing but an evil person---you know NOTHING about our friend Lorenzo.

I just stumbled upon this. I feel sad for those who lost a friend (all of you who knew him) and for those who crime effects (Ray). Instead of yelling at each other (I know it sounds corny) but try listening, hugging, and understading each other. I really hate to see things like this. Everyone just berates the other people who have made posts instead of having GOOD OPEN MINDED DISCUSSIONS. Peace and love to all. That helped me to get through the death of my brohter (no violent death, but it hurts just the same).
