HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of my 5,000 plus followers. I wish you all a wonderful, prosperous, healthy and a very safe 2017. I will never understand why Chicago has become the “MURDER CAPITAL OF THE WORLD”! Ha! I am kiddin’! You know damn well I am not shocked at all! I have been telling black folks for years that the murder rate in Chi Town would soon be so out of control that no one will be safe. I was the first journalist to say the NATIONAL GUARD needs to come here to help out our police. BUT NOOOOOOOO! Liberal black folks in Chicago thought that bringing in the NATIONAL GUARD would be a mistake and that martial law would work against. Black people! Our people crack me up with that type of talk, especially when blacks are the ones dying in our streets! I have come to the conclusion that black people just are ok with other black folks dying. And you know we have elite, aristocratic blacks who have not been touched with violence, yet always want to remind folks that we were enslaved 400 years ago and that systematic racism is why we should not get upset about us killing us because the white man trained us to hate us!
YOU KNOW CHICAGO IS THE MURDER CAPITAL THANKS TO OUR PEOPLE KILLING EACH OTHER. IT HAS nothing to do with white cops shooting us! If you think I am wrong, look up the murder stats! Please explain to me why another minority…..HISPANICS……are not killing each other like we are? After all, they are a minority, they have a lack of jobs, they are under employed …yet, they are not slaughtering each other like minority blacks! I remember a conversation with a liberal black person, who said that I cannot compare Hispanics to blacks! I just did not understand why in that individual’s mind, there was no comparison! Ha! To this very day, I still cannot understand why blacks and Hispanics are considered different! WE are minorities, no jobs, under paid and living in poverty! So why are we not in the same boat….and why are they not killing each other in these alarming numbers like we are? Why do they appreciate their families more than we do our own? Only difference I see is that they speak Spanish and we allegedly speak English…or some say Ebonics!
YOU KNOW AS LONG AS BLACK LIBERALS make excuses for why blacks are killing blacks, we will remain forever under siege in our neighborhoods. Giving every black a job will not stop all this senseless killing . Black people have to get back to fearing God and having a righteous soul…..and learn again to love and respect each other! Can you imagine a world where blacks are continuing to wipe out each other year after year after year?
PLEASE START WRITING TO THE POWERS THAT BE TO ask for the NATIONAL GUARD TO come to Chicago to help our police, who now are not policing or give a crap about arresting thugs in black communities because the asshole Black Lives Matter are into their own agenda …and if they were truly caring about us…..they would get just as
Pissed off with blacks killing blacks as they are about cops shooting a black!
GET REAL! AND speaking of jobs, African American small businesses are closing throughout this city…no thanks to the federal government. Have you noticed that the restaurants in the black communities have Hispanic bus boys instead of blacks? That is because Hispanics will go into any neighborhood to work and make a living for their families. Our young people think they are too good for those types of jobs! That is why I say we have to start loving each other….because no matter what the job….killing is no solution…LOVE IS!….BLACK POWER SHOULD NOW STAND FOR THE POWER TO LOVE AND CARE ABOUT EACH OTHER AGAIN….And I do not mean getting young girls pregnant and running off!
IF NOT THE NATIONAL GUARD….THEN the NATION OF ISLAM’S Fruit of Islam soldiers is the only answer for our people even more so than the National Guard…..
MINISTER LOUIS FARRAKHAN and his men will and can bring law and order and faith back into the lives of struggling black men and women!
YEAH, I SAID IT AGAIN …THE FRUIT OF ISLAM MEN CAN SAVE OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS! TRUST AND BELIEVE,! JUST THINK About IT : When was the last time you read that one of Farrakhan’s followers committed a murder in the black or white community?
YEAH I SAID IT….STELLA IN THE CITY!
LIKE I HAVE SAID 100 different ways: Each city in this country needs to strategically and legally get rid of all trigger-happy policemen, whether they are white, Hispanic or black.
Get an independent committee of regular people from different ethnic backgrounds and professions and give them the task of going through the rank-and-file cops’ case files and determine who is crazy and has had too many citizen complaints of abuse, using excessive force and involvement in one too many shootings.
AND PLEASE TRUST and believe our community need police protection more than any other segment of society..So, DO NOT LET The thugs win by grouping all law enforcement people in the same category. We will be playing into the hands of the thugs, who are busy lambasting all policemen to the point, the good cops will hesitate even more when a innocent bystander or innocent homeowner needs help in the black community. Black kids have a right to live to become senior citizens….and not sit around planning a funeral.
TRUST that these so-called “anti-all-police people” are going to wind up letting decent black people suffer even more. If we were not so busy shooting and killing each other, the need to see a white cop’s face in the hood would diminish considerably! Just think about that!
BLACK LIVES MATTER need to keep it real and fair. The high death toll in our communities are not being given the loud indignation and rage that they are expressing about policemen. Our people need jobs and good schools, but what good will that do if you are shot dead in the streets by another black? And if someone is breaking into your home at 5 p.m. Or 3a.m., will a member of the Black Lives Matter be there for you?
BEFORE ANY IMPROVEMENT COMES along, the police first have to get control of all of these shootings and killings. And the police need to be taught to shoot to wound….not kill….especially if the person is complying and is not armed! CLEAN UP THE POLICE DEPARTMENTS NATIONWIDE!
REMEMBER : Weakening and treating all cops with disdain will backfire on the black community. Like I have said many times before, THE MAYOR AND GOVERNOR will not call out the National Guard because they know it will quell some of these shootings. They will not because deep down inside they are saying to themselves …”It is really just niggaz killing niggaz. …And As long as they keep dying in their own communities….other communities will be much safer with US out of the way…and a white hood ain’t even necessary!” (Well, if I were white, I would probably be thinking just that)….And please know that all white folks are not secretly thinking these negative thoughts, but since I am not a mind reader, I am inclined to believe quite a few are rejoicing and thinking, “this is even better than sending them all BACK TO AFRICA!
HEY, I KNOW MY FOLKS ARE BUSY RIOTING AS I WRITE THIS…. After all, free stuff is free stuff even if the store owner is black! Just understand even the thugs shooting each other in these streets wind up dialing 911.
YEAH, I SAID IT AGAIN….STELLA IN THE CITY!
FOLKS ALWAYS ASK WHAT CAN BE DONE TO MAYBE HELP ALLEVIATE THE BLACKACIDE epidemic in Chicago. I know just passing out jobs will never stop this carnage …because it is so out of control that folks with jobs are being shot and injured! I have a few ideas…like them or not.
FIRST, THE BAD GUYS WILL NEVER give up their guns…it will never happen. ..ONLY decent citizens will feel guilty and will turn over the guns they use for protection. There is nothing wrong with a good guy having a gun….especially when a perp is climbing through your window at 3 a.m.
THE POLICE DEPARTMENT MUST START kicking out the bad apples, which I have said over and over again…There are policemen on the force who have become very jaded about black on black crimes because they have seen too much of it. Some of these policemen have long blemishes on their records and files regarding using excessive force and abuse along with many citizen complaints that they have managed to beat and remain on the force.
POLICEMEN WHO HAVE BECOME apathetic, should be kicked out of the Department, or placed behind a desk not on the street. THE CITY CURFEW MUST AND SHOULD be enforced. And there is nothing wrong with fining the parents for not enforcing that rule. Even forming a unit specifically designed for watching out for kids on the street after curfew may cost more money, but would make sense to me. There should also be a special detention building just to show kids that the city is serious about keeping their young butts off our street corners. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY no excuse for a 13 -year-old child to be on a street corner without an adult after hours….not a thug adult….but a parent OR guardian.
SINCE THE NATIONAL GUARD WILL NOT BE CALLED IN to Chicago because The Mayor will not admit that this is an epidemic, we have no choice but to work and deal with our police department because THEY ARE THE FIRST RESPONDERS, and they are our only line of defense….THAT IS WHY IT IS IMPERATIVE TO GET RID OF BAD COPS…THEY MAKE ALL COPS LOOK BAD AND THAT JUST IS NOT FAIR. AND THE GOOD COPS MUST START TURNING IN THE DIRTY ONES, BUT ANONYMOUSLY, JUST LIKE THEY TELL THE PUBLIC TO DROP A DIME ON CRIME!
AFRICAN AMERICANS are a strong people, and most are hardworking, God fearing, church going and caring ….and very busy trying to raise their families in a safe and loving environment. BUT WE ARE UNDER ATTACK FROM WITHIN. I CALL IT “BLACK-ON-BLACK RACISM”! IT IS HARD TO ADMIT IT…BUT THE PROOF IS FILLING UP THE MORGUES ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY…AND IT IS HARD AS HELL TO SAY IT OUT LOUD AND MOST BLACK REPORTERS seem to feel better if they do not say much. BUT WE HAVE TO.. GOOD BLACK FOLKS -are catching heck trying to stay alive and be able to send their precious babies to school to get an education and not a bullet in the head. Just remember: “You have to keep breathing to keep achieving! ” There are hundreds of thousands of great and wonderful black families, who have been crouching in corners or lying down on their home floors to avoid stray or intended bullets coming into their windows and walls that they have worked hard to have and raise there families in.
MOST BLACKS ARE Kind, Nurturing, fun loving AND HARDWORKING…BUT THEY ARE GETTING CAUGHT IN THE CROSS FIRE BY GANGS AND THUGS WHO CANNOT SHOOT STRAIGHT.AND DO NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT ANYONE, INCLUDING KIDS AND SENIORS.
RAHM NEEDS TO STOP PAYING FOR THESE SURVEYS AND BIG ass MANUALS trying to detail who is at fault and WHAT IS WRONG…USE THAT MONEY TO HIRE MORE POLICEMEN AND WOMEN, WHO HAVE BEEN PSYCHOLOGICALLY EVALUATED BEFORE being hired. AND STOP TEACHING COPS IN THE POLICE ACADEMY TO SHOOT TO KILL, EVEN IF THE PERP IS ONLY ARMED WITH A KNIFE, BAT, PIPE A tree trunk, etc. AND NOT A GUN! A PERP WHO IS WIELDING THOSE TYPE OF WEAPONS, AND DO NOT HAVE A HOSTAGE IN HIS ARMS, SHOULD BE ABLE TO BE TAKEN DOWN WITHOUT SHOOTING HIM 16 or 42 times! These type of stories involving police…do not sit well with the black or any other communities. Use your TASERS more…for God’s sake…that is why you have them!
ALSO, THE POLICE SHOULD BE GIVEN THE POWER, LIKE BACK IN THE DAY, TO STOP AND SEARCH VEHICLES THAT MAY HAVE CONTRABAND AND SHADY LOOKING FOLKS SLOUCHED DOWN AT EACH WINDOW. IT SHOULD NOT BE LABELED RACIAL PROFILING…BUT BEHAVIORAL PROFILING! If a Squad car is policing in a black area ..more than likely he or she will be stopping someone black….WHITE people are not shooting up black people…even though you might want to contribute all the killing and shootings to them!
MANY YEARS AGO, THE POLICE WERE ABLE To CONFISCATE MORE GUNS THAN EVER by searching cars and frisking gangs of kids hanging around all willy nilly on our streets late at night. Hey, it may have bordered on harassment and some innocent people may have gotten caught up….but that can be the price we have to pay to get to the crooks out to do harm. Also, IF THE BAD COPS ARE NO LONGER ON THE STREETS of Chicago….folks will start showing more respect for police..even while being inconveniently searched.
ALSO, THE NEW POLICE SUPERINTENDENT, EDDIE JOHNSON, is impressive and seems to have a good and fair attitude about this huge undertaking that has landed in his lap. I believe he will make sure that people are treated with kindness and respect and that his officers are treated with respect by the community. Our rubber-stamp City Council is a waste……and just a group of politicians stunning and profiling….and keeping there blinds closed and ducking down like the rest of us.
AND, THE 911 CENTER, ABSOLUTELY HAS TO KEEP ALL CALLS CONFIDENTIAL , IF YOU WANT TO BREAK THE CODE OF SILENCE. GOOD CITIZENS Do not have guns…and have to look out for their families. If a citizen, reports a crime…the police cannot go stomping up to their door steps in view of everyone. Johnson please figure out a way! You are smart! And a note to everyone reading this: PRACTICE SMILING ….IT CAN OPEN UP MANY POSITIVE DOORS! In case I decide to drop the mic….have a blessed day !
YEAH, I SAID IT….STELLA IN THE CITY!
MY DEAR FACEBOOK FRIENDS….I HAVE FINALLY CALMED DOWN ENOUGH TO WRITE ABOUT A BLACK COMIC/WRITER/CABLE TV HOST, WHO CALLED PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA A “NIGGA” IN FRONT OF A MOSTLY WHITE AUDIENCE at the annual hot-ticketed HIGH-POWER WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS’ dinner on Saturday in Washington, D.C.
I JUST KNOW YOU GUYS ARE JUST SCRATCHING YOUR HEADS AND WONDERING WHAT IN THE WORLD IS STELLA TALKING ABOUT? SURELY, NO SANE BLACK MAN WOULD HAVE THE NERVE AND THE AUDACITY TO CALL THE only BLACK PRESIDENT THAT ANY OF US WILL EVER SEE IN THIS LIFETIME, “A NIGGA….OR SAY “MY NIGGA” while delivering his monologue on the dais with the President, First lady Michelle, as well as other prominent journalists and dignitaries sharing that stage!! Well, he certainly in the hell did!
IN NO WAY should that Wilmore stay in his job after blatantly saying the N word…Do you think that a Jewish comic would call a Jewish President a ” kike,” or a Polish comic calling a Polish president a “pollock” or an Italian calling a prez, a “dago?” I think not …especially not at a dinner full of news people!
I WILL LEAVE YOU WITH THIS THOUGHT: If Obama was in Chicago and visited his favorite barber shop in his Hyde Park Neighborhood and got a chance to see and hug his friend and longtime barber of over 15 years, I can see his barber quietly whispering in Obama’s ear, “You did it my nigga”!…but someone saying that out loud to the global world is downright EMBARRASSING, DISRESPECTFUL, BEYOND IGNORANT, Tasteless, classless, horrific, and CRAZY!
IN MY OPINION,, Wilmore should have immediately been fired by Comedy Central, just like the Food Network got rid of Paula Deen for saying the N -word. And Paula was a money- making star for that network,whereas Wilmore, who replaced Stephen Colbert, is costing Comedy Central big time due to his low ratings! And all those black celebs who were in that dinner, should be ashamed that they have not weighed in with a resounding outcry of outrage and disgust! Such cowards! And, do not tell me the word was an endearment of brotherhood….”BULL SHIT!”. Yes, I said….BULLSHITIF I DID NOT KNOW BETTER, I might wonder if White supremacist, David Duke, encouraged him to close out with that derogatory and insulting word! Wilmore’s mom and dad from Evanston were in the audience….and they need to be still whooping his ass!
YEAH, I SAID IT….STELLA IN THE CITY!
LOOK AT THESE OUTRAGEOUS NUMBERS, YET, YOUR SO-CALLED bobble head AFRICAN AMERICAN LEADERS ONLY CARE WHEN A WHITE PERSON KILLS A BLACK ….THAT IS WHEN THE CAMERA CREWS COME OUT….and our so-called leaders and politicians show up for the photo Op. SO DOES BLACK LIVES MATTER?
TO ME, THEY MOST CERTAINLY DO…..BUT THESE numbers will surely rise as the summer heat rises. THE MAYOR AND THE NEW POLICE CHIEF EDDIE JOHNSON cannot keep our beautiful children safe …..And you caring and loving parents, you have to be vigilant about protecting your babies…..and if all cops are labeled racist, the less policing will happen in our neighborhoods. The good cops will become more reluctant to care or get involved …. Just remember, even gangbangers call on the police after they get through shooting and beating each other. We only have police …but the National Guard needs to intervene. The damn Kardashian women get more headlines than black folks dying.
I WANT BLACK CHILDREN TO LIVE AND THRIVE AND GET A DECENT EDUCATION. BUT ALL THE EDUCATION SERVES NO PURPOSE WHEN THAT CHILD IS GUNNED DOWN IN OUR STREETS BY uneducated thugs who think that it is cool to see another black bleed.

Chicago’s Deadliest Neighborhoods
GOD BLESS THE LATE GREAT CIVIL RIGHTS leader Dr. Martin Luther King for believing so much in the the rights of black people to be treated and respected as equals to white people that he was willing to put his life on the line for his beliefs.
SO WE CELEBRATED HIS 87th birthday on Jan. 15, 2016 . The fact that this nation is still recognizing his leadership and contributions to the civil rights movement and to ending segregation is commendable , but I know he never thought that when he was unmercifully shot down by a crazy white dude on the balcony of the Lorraine Hotel on April 4, 1968, that some blacks (not all) have brought dishonor to his legacy by picking up guns and turning the guns on their own people….and have totally forgotten his incredible sacrifice and are committing murder and mayhem by the thousands within the black communities throughout this country.
SO MANY KILLINGS THAT GOD -fearing, kind and hardworking black folks are all being lumped together with the thugs and ingrates in the eyes of white people, even if they are doctors, lawyers, teachers and are upstanding decent citizens , who just want to live and enjoy their lives without ducking bullets. Whew!
REV. DR. KING , I AM SO SORRY THAT you lost your precious life and was brutally snatched from your lovely wife and children so many years ago just so blacks aka AfricanAmericans/negroes/colored folks can live in freedom and experience equality!
DR. KING IF (unbeknownst to us) you HAVE turned over in your grave with your butt to the sky in an effort to tell some of our young folks to ” kiss your black behind,” I would not blame or be mad at you! I know you did not intend for black people to not care and be mean to one another. I KNOW THAT WHEN YOU SAID “I have a Dream'” ….blacks killing blacks had to be the furthest thing from your brilliant and soulful mind, body and spirit! I pray 2016 will have less funeral processions on the streets of Chicago!
YEAH, I SAID IT…STELLA IN THE CITY!
ANOTHER SENSELESS SHOOTING BY A TRIGGER HAPPY cop in Chicago. Blacks killing blacks is a sad ongoing epidemic in black communities across this country …and now the younger cops on the force apparently have been raised up on the same violent shows, movies and games that continue to saturate media outlets constantly in this country. These cops are scared and do not want to die at the hands of a perp so they are not thinking before they shoot, and they s…hoot to kill because that is what they are taught to do in the Police Academy. A perp swinging a bat, knife or a stick should be tasered …..NOT SHOT! You know that old saying: “Do not bring a knife to a gunfight.” A policeman with a level head should know that it is not necessary to shoot a person who is threatening a cop with something other than a gun.
MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL you must go through the rank and file in our Chicago Police Department and FIRE COPS WHo have a record for unnecessary abuse and violent acts against civilians. If you do not do this, this city will be up for grabs. And policemen must be judged and go before a jury just like any other person who commits a crime. An unjustified murder of an individual by a policeman must be handled fairly and without favoritism.
WE ALL KNOW THAT POLICEMEN are very loyal and protective of one another and will definitely lie, cheat and plant evidence to cover up for a fellow officer.
MAYOR you must appoint another committee to painstakingly go through police files and pull the cops who have been repeatedly called racist, mean, abusive and using unnecessary excessive force. We know you cannot fire everyone and start from scratch…but you must let the people know that you are going to set up a police force whereas the men and women have compassion, kindness, honesty, integrity and will do a good job of protecting and serving the public. There are thugs on the street carrying illegal firearms and you have thugs in the police department carrying legal firearms.
GETTING RID OF THE TRIGGER HAPPY cops is a must. Police carry tasers…well they better start using them instead of just shooting to kill…or you will have a real uprising on your hands in Chi Town. And do not be surprised to see me among the protesters. It is bad enough that we are killing each other…..we do not need any help from the police! YEAH I SAID IT!
The violent Death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald at the hands of a trigger happy Chicago cop by the name of Jason Van Dyke, has sent shock waves throughout Chicago and the nation. In case you have been living under a rock, McDonald was shot 16 times by Van Dyke on a Chicago street in October 2014. It is being said that this kid was hopped up on PCP and was brandishing a knife that he used to flatten the tires on a police vehicle.
The shooting of this kid was recorded by a police dashboard cam and though there was no doubt this young teen was mercilessly massacred by this racist cop, the video did not surface until November 2015 and that was because a judge ordered that the graphic video be released to the public. The killing of this kid was just horrifying to hear about….but it plays into what I have been saying all along: IN EVERY CITY AND STATE the police stations need to get rid of all the policemen who have alot of complaints of excessive force and abuse of power.
PEOPLE KEEP SAYING WHAT CAN be done to cut down on the shooting of black kids by law enforcement officers?. I have written over and over that the first step is to weed out the bad cops. This case is a perfect example of what I have been saying.
OUR SO-CALLED BLACK leaders only seem to put fire under their butts when someone white kills a black. All Black Lives Matter….but it seems
Protesters in Chicago have been peacefully marching downtown and on Michigan Avenue to put the spotlight on this vicious murder of the teen, who only had a small knife…Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently ousted Police superintendent Gary McCarthy, and folks are asking that State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez step down for her role in not dealing with this hot case in a timely manner. There has been a real public outcry to get rid of the authorities who obviously were covering up this case. And the family of the kid was quietly paid over $5 million dollars by the city.
VAN DYKE WILL SURELY be tried and sent to jail hell for life……but this type of killing will happen again if the powers that be do not sit down and patiently go thru all the background records of the policemen who are patrolling our streets and conduct more psychological evaluations. I mean the black ones and the white ones and anybody in between. All cops with numerous complaints of abuse…..SHOULD BE KICKED OFF THE POLICE FORCE…. if they are found guilty of excessive force.
AS YOUR DEVOTED AND LOVING sister, I have been there for you and Lorenzo Brown from the beginning. And doing for those boys, Russell and Randy, who are now amazing grown men, has always been a priority. However, from the first time I heard that your beloved and sweet husband, Lorenzo, had been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, I knew I would never be able to accept his one-day not physically being in our presence. Now that the day has come, I feel like there is a hole in my heart. It is beyond heart-rending to realize that he is not here, after being like a brother to me, and your supportive, protective, loving and wonderful husband for over 46 years, and a great dad and role model to your sons.
I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED and had the utmost admiration and respect for Dr. Lorenzo Brown. He left his earthly body the morning of August 21 to receive his heavenly wings and go hang out with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, which, I imagine, we all hope to one day be blessed and able to do. And although I know he is at peace, it is still very hard for me to accept not being able to get him on the phone, or see his always smiling face and his forever zest for life, his family, working on Sister 2 Sister magazine (for 26 years) and going fishing!
HE ALWAYS had the ability to smile and handle any situation with ease when everyone else would be going nuts around him. He was filled with happiness and joy, and if you weren’t feeling that way, he was going to do his best to make you happy and joyful, too. Lorenzo was supposed to be my brother-in-law but he has always been much more of a brother to me and a son to our deceased parents, Peter James and Mamie Lee Foster. I am sure they are waiting to embrace him on the other side, along with other loved ones who love him tremendously — as we all do.
I LOVED HIM to pieces and will miss him terribly because God really broke the mold when He made Lorenzo. I am thinking God said, “There will never be another individual remotely close to this fabulous, one-of-a-kind man that I brilliantly created: Dr. Lorenzo Brown.”
SOMETIMES I FEEL THAT GOD takes some of the nicest people because He just does not want to be bothered with the mean ones. (Oops! Did I say that?) And Lorenzo definitely qualified as one of the nicest on this planet. And now, I feel, he is peacefully hanging out with God, with his fishing pole and tackle box!
Yeah, I said it!
IT IS FAR TOO MANY KILLINGS IN THIS COUNTRY …AND WHETHER IT IS BLACK ON BLACK, WHITE ON BLACK, BLACK ON WHITE, WHITE ON WHITE OR WHATEVER, it is a sad, sad FACT that in the United State of America you CAN GET SHOT and you do not have to join the military and go off to war overseas to wind up pushing up daisies or walk among the tombstones! Yet, this country is forever meddling in other countries’ business…like we are better than they are! The nerve! The USA cannot be every country’s daddy!
THAT WHITE BOY HAS SERIOUS ISSUES…ROOF PROCLAIMED: “I have to do it. you rape our women and you’re taking over our country,and you have to go.” In other words, BLACK MEN ARE RAPING THE WHITE WOMAN AND TRYING TO TAKE OVER! Well, do you suppose he resented seeing so many images of black celebrity men married to white women on TV, movies and on the streets of Charleston? Do you think his sick and demented mind was telling him that those white women who are married or going with the brothers are actually being raped instead of willingly marrying brothers? And his twisted and violent mind told him that raping is taking place!
LET’S NOT SPEND TAXPAYERS’ MONEY WITH APPEAL AFTER APPEAL TO KEEP THIS DEVIL ALIVE….HE NEEDS TO GO STRAIGHT TO HELL …..EVEN IF THE FAMILIES OF THOSE NINE GOD -FEARING INNOCENT VICTIMS CHOOSE TO FORGIVE HIS UNMERCIFUL ATTACK….HE DESERVES TO TAKE A DIRT NAP!
CHURCH FOLKS ARE ALWAYS full of forgiveness when they are still on this side of the dirt or can still eat a chitlin’ or caviar, if they want to. While, the nine deceased will never get another chance to set eyes on their family and friends or see another sunrise or sunset or be at the church’s barbeque cookout at the park! Yeah, if it makes them feel better to forgive and be so forgiving, I say good for them! After all, that is commendable and shows love for their fellow man no matter how heinous or vicious the crime! In case you think I am not a Christian, you would be wrong to think so, and I am spiritual and care about people…but I lose my religion when I hear about heinous crimes such as a man raping and killing a baby or burns up a family while they are still alive!
PERSONALLY, I SAY EXECUTE HIM And let God and the devil fight over his sorry ass! (Oops! Did I say that?). YEAH, I SAID IT…STELLA IN THE CITY!
