    This makes my blood boil and turns my stomach. They can do whatever they want to our children and still we don't come together to fight against it. I know this kid was a troubled youth and his choices led him to this consequence. But still, the justice system is put in place for so called reason...to serve and protect. If officers/corectional officers can do whatever the want...totally disregarding the laws in place...then what the heck is this system really for? what about the youth who are innocent and get thrown into unfortunate situations? Is it alright to murder them too? It's like that saying, "Give 'em an inch and they'll take a mile."

    How many more babies/Black people gotta die at the hands of the officers of law before we do something about it? What's it gonna take....my child, your child, or do we just continue to allow these things to happen?:em0400::crying:
