  1. I’m trying to understand the story and how it relates to this child loosing his life during a supposedly simple traffic stop!! Administrative leave??.. should be termination. Guess I’ll have to keep reading to see what happens next.

  2. It never ends. Seeing and reading things as such makes one want to retaliate. Fuck these Police. They are murders who hide behind their badges. I’m curious to know how many are white.

  3. All you hear about is someone being shot in Jacksonville. It’s, and I’m sorry to say, but its our black young men. It seems like nothing is being done about this. You will hear about administrative leave and that is where it ends. There needs to be more of an investigation to these deaths. All over the United States you hear about reform. Why don’t you hear about it here?
