ok people the news didnt put the whole story out there. yes he's a coky sob but he didnt mean to shoot that girl the news wont say that. the girl was his cousin. even she said he didnt mean to. but like i said the news wont say the truth they just want to half ass things. the news people need to get there stories straight before they post things on tv, is all im say'n.

using your own words, you accuse the media of not putting the whole story out.

You noted the shooting victim, the female cousin of the shooter, indicated "...he didn't mean to..."

Taking your words literally, one must ask, why is he still in jail? Or, why was he even taken into custody?

If he didn't mean to, why did the cousin press charges? Or why is it more than a misdemeanor? Did he violate probation by having a firearm in his possession?

And why would someone with a prior felony conviction, if I read both posts correctly, be stupid enough to have a firearm in his possession?

Seems to be a lot of confusion sown by you, is all I'm saying.

Sad part about this guy is, he just got out not too long ago....smh

Oh, to become a convicted felon at 19, how much more could a mother ask for? Hey Jo-Boy...are you ready to meet Big-Buck at the Greystone Resort? Careful, he may not be as meek as the girl you so bravely shot!
