Did Jerome have a "relationship" with the victim?

After all, you said he was "caring and loving". These are usually things people say about old women. Is he a woman?

What a crock!!!!!!!!!!Jerome is so innocent that he robbed a lady at gunpoint within the prior 15 hours....and was identified by numerous witnesses. Jerome's entire family has been in and out of jail.....go figure. This punk a** killed a father, a son, a grandson, and a great friend. He helped the young and elderly, and was loyal to everyone he knew. Justice will be served this week.....hope Jerome ROTS IN JAIL FOR LIFE!!!!!!!!!!RIP STEVE xoxoxox

Why not Life Coach? You do all the time. What is fair for one is fair for all. Just because they are talking about your son gives you no right to judge them.
