As I said before I would not have a dangerous person or animal running uncontrolled in my neighbourhood. He has killed in the past and it was not a matter that he attempting to defend his family but was cold blooded murder.

I see nothing redeeming and have heard the old con talk of "I have changed I am a better man"before. TFB.
It would have been one thing if it was just one killing that could be explained as perhaps an "accident" but when the body count starts piling up to four or more persons... I also hold him culpable for the actions of his gang as he created and lead it, for the continued victimization of their respective communities drug and gang violence.
Would his living lead to understanding? Would his death? I say let his past victims decide what his fate would be. I know how I would vote if I were on the list.

I hear ya..I wasn't necessarily talking about him roaming the neighborhood...i was thinking more of using him as an educational entity to help brothers in there go back to their communities to break the cycles of behavior that got them there in the first place. I try to view the world through an academic lens...not an emotional or passionate one....that can lead you to embrcing illogical ass the Lofton,s, CF and Eggewhite I want my level of analysis towards the solution to black people's problems to be a little more sophisticated than the " Cage em and Fry em" azz solutions the country has for us as of now.......but do not get me wrong, I do respect your views because I am in no position to be judgemental of them........
