  1. You live by the gun, you die by the gun, imagine the jury found him not guilty for killing an innocent man. Karma is a bitch. Sorry for the mother, but she stood by her son in thick and thin even when he was involved in his criminal acts. I guess she knew deep down one day this would come. I feel more sorry for his twin. Yohanz is really the good boy.
