    First of all.......this story isnt telling all the details. From what I know, The female who was shot and her friends walked up to Shekeyta's car trying to fight her, thats why she got shot. If yall are going to judge please know everything before you run your mouth. Im praying for everyone that was involved.

    Assault for shooting someone in the neck? Why not attempted murder? Huh?

    If she had a gun permit this was like rule number one, you provoke someone and shoot them, you're DONE.

    "TeaforTexas-Nice way to try and work out your problems. Her life is over - if she ever had one to begin with. And what makes you think she didn't have a life? Is it because she is Black? jaecee452"

    When you put it that way it certainly winds up right back on the table now doesn't it? geeze gotta stick a race thing in there and drag the whole thing in the toilet.

    Guess she won the fight. Now to give her the winning prize. A 10 year vacation in beautiful Central Prison! She won't have to work, get 3 meals a day, a bed, books to read, and best of all - friends just like her all around!! ... and we'll be safer.

    jaecee452 - Anyone who cares so little about life that they would not think twice before trying to take someone else's, isn't living any kind of life worth living themselves.
