R.I.P ca$h ... we all miss u so much. I hope that the police that did this 2 u get what they deserve. They didnt only kill a friend but they also killed someones baby. The police r the real crimanals. Ca$h could have still been alive if it were not for them. N i will always hate the police because of it. This is the reason why most of us can not trust the police now a days.

hey stupid ass, that was a pretty ignorant comment to make. how would you feel if this was your son? shame on you for appreciating the fact that a precious life was taken. it didn't have to be that way. all people deserve chance after chance. the lord pardons us for the sins we all make on a daily basis. but seems he was just ready for corey to be with him! rest in peace corey croom. forever in our hearts.

If he pointed a gun at swat, that is known as suicide by cop. Meaning he did it on purpose 'cause he would have rather been dead than admit his mistakes. If it were my child he wouldn't have been so foolish. Competence, (which includes spelling and grammar), does amazing things.

it's been 4 years and this still breaks my heart Corey "Cash" Crooms was a geniune beautiful man. It's sad to know he was taken from his mother which was her only child. I can't believed the judged ruled this as justifiable for the cops to kill him. Waving a gun to a cop is never the right thing to do but I know that one shot could make anyone stumble. For 2 different officers to shoot him 3 times is unbelievable, they couldn't wait to let their guns off. Cops get a thrill over it and go to the bar afterwards and talk about how many rounds they let out smfh. I miss you and love you kid you'll forever be in my heart and what's understood doesn't have to be explained. I hope Heaven or Hell I'll see you there
