That’s a lot of scumbaggery to cram into 22 years. No doubt some outstanding member of his family is ranting away about his death being a “set up” by Buckner or some other nonsensical idiocy. It was only a matter of time before this idiot killed someone else (assuming he hadn’t already). Probably a cohort of Lil Boosie.

They just don't change-when is society going to realize this?

Boy, as much crap as he did and was still free, it doesn't surprise me somebody capped him. I'm sure he'd been doing bad stuff to the other bad guys, too. It doesn't look like he went more than a few weeks at a time without running into trouble with the law. I guess the rest of the time he was getting in trouble with the lawless.

We don't need more gun laws.

We need stiffer sentences for any crime involving guns and that should include a felon being in possession.

It doesn’t get much stiffer than “dead.” Live by the gun, die by the gun.

How in the hell was this career criminal not incarcerated? How many more of these lowlife thugs are out on the street on "probation"?
.
If you are a law-abiding citizen and not already carrying a concealed handgun you are making a mistake, considering the FACT career criminals are allowed to walk among us due to a highly ineffective justice system. When seconds count, law enforcement is only minutes away.

Packman.......Lil Boosi was heading down the same path because lenient judges keep slapping the fingers of violent young thugs and thinking that is how you rehabilitate them.

Give them enough rope and they hang themselves. Pigs get fed and hogs get slaughtered.

The public will be much more safe now that he's gone from it.
