I'm sorry but if a thug is getting shot in the face and won't cooperate with the authorities, let him get killed. There, I said it.

darnell is not a thug or gang banger. just because he was a rapper, doesn't mean he deserved what happened to him. also, you dont know the facts so keep your racist comments to yourself. I was out and about in Las Vegas at 3:30 am and so were thousands of other people. Air Heads!

Shot in the face at 3:30am. Amazing how many thug black dudes get shot in the middle of the night. Stop thugging, get a real job and go to sleep at night.
