Wow I can NOT believe all the NEGATIVE comments... @george your SICK for saying that comment what the heck do you mean you wonder how many more that will keep off the welfare system?? and @Bill -- one less to deal with? One less what?... I would have to say that 70% of the comments on this site are negative with a hint of racism and absolutely NO COMPASSION! That is sad and you should try real hard to get that hate out of your heart. I am personally sad to hear about the loss of Nicholas Telemaque I didn't know him but it was another life lost due to whatever cir****tances we are unaware of at the moment!
Rest in Peace Nicholas Telemaque so sad you passed at such a young age.

You racist, ignorant MF's. Nick aka Juse was the most humble person you can know. FYI you arrogant b*tches he was going to college, he worked he did not belong to any gang. His murder was senseless and without provocation. Please don't slander his name. I take it personal because he did not deserve his early death. He will be missed that's for sure.

I have no comment on the victim because I didn't know him. I will say this though - It astounds me how Nicki Minaj can rap about sh*tt*ng on people and having someones head blown off in Brooklyn and then be seemingly shocked and saddened when it happens to her relative. How disconnected do you have to be? Talk about compartamentalizing your life. Zero insight. Dollars to donughts that she's had no thought along the lines of "Gee maybe I shouldn't rap so callously about brutal violence". She'll continue rapping those lyrics at concerts for that filthy lucre like the whore she is.
