  1. People let's be real the officer is human like us all he is not the one who makes the law and serve justice . He is now a victim does not mean he shouldn't cry for justice it could have been your son, brother,nephew , uncle so let's pray for the nation instead of pointing fingers.

  2. I didn't see you coming out for justice when innocent families suffer the same fate and their cases turn into cold case... we all should be demanding justice for every case regardless. SHIT ONLY GETS REAL WHEN IT HITS HOME!
