    Yet one more young black man who has thrown his life away and I am sure it was for next to nothing. I would ask what was this guy thinking but we all know he was not.

    When will they learn? Someone (and that would be me if I know) will drop a dime on you in a minute especially if there is a reward!!

    Has Feyetteville become so popular with murderers, that it now attracts killers from other states? Glad they got this guy.
