#31. Your attitude and ignorance is exactly why your unfortunate enough to only work in Beverly Hill and not actually live there yourself. Its good to see you enjoy protecting and serving people who could give a f*** about you! RIP Dolla.

you guys are idiots    

Hey Idiots,
The Beverly Center is not in Beverly Hills.....if you don't believe me, GOOGLE IT! And what does it matter if he got shot in Beverly Hills or in LA? The point is he got shot and we should'nt regard it in a geopraphical context,

TMZ AND PEREZHILTON really make me question they morality by making topics like this open for comment....

They know how ugly a lot of people choose to be and disrespect the dead. Death is too sensitive of a subject to not at least moniter comments for rude and racist ones. You shouldn't have to know him to feel some type of sympathy for the fact that he was ONLY 21 and MURDERED. RIP DOLLA

With a recession going on, I guess a Dolla doesn't go as far as it used to.

Hell, if this was a 21 year old white singer from a Death Metal band no one would give a crap. There are senseless murders everyday but unless your rich and famous no one cares. That's the only reason you people are remotely upset by this. Look at his song titles, dude can't even spell.

God Bless You Dolla, and his fa,ily, relative, friends, and many fans. Stay strong and keep your heads held way up high, cause I know the justice is gonna bite the asses of the ones that did this to him.I really admired Dolla, and it brings me to tears every time I think about what happened to him. God Bless Dolla, and R.I.P-Kasey
