bars are not places to have fun, bars are places to go and get humiliated , punched and sometimes killed...

I find it amusing that people write comments like the one above that states:

Why the hell are you on TMZ's website then??? This whole site is full of useless information often about people nobody knows and don't care about. This is an entertainment website. Obviously this story isn't entertaining...but I'm so annoyed with people who say that and yet still take the time to post a comment and click on various stories.

How horrible! Why are so many killed over foolishness? When will this violence stop? Now all these children are without a father. Left to grow up and continue the cycle of violence and anger.

Dang, I was just reading about this on my local ATL paper website but they didn't mention it was him--nor did they give a name. Wow @TMZ, you guys pick up news really fast. This is why I come here to check entertainment news.

John H, you have some serious issues? What, did a black man take your woman??? Is that why you're so bitter??? Or did your precious mommy & daddy not give you enough love as a child? Something's got you disturbed that you're taking it out on black folks.

Enough wasting space on you...RIP AJ. May God be with your family during this difficult time.
