    My child is missing.. Here’s a picture of him throwing gang signs. These parents need to be held responsible for these kids. I have heard this garbage about people are changing, times are changing, it’s different now. It’s different because you are allowing it to be. It’s different because you don’t take that parental role. Be the influence, the guider, the protector, the CORRECTOR of your children. I hope this kid is found safe and sound, and that this family seeks help so that he is not ” another kid killed in the gang violence” in Wilmington.

    His profile pic was changed on facebook Monday, February3. Is there a way to tell if he changed it? I pray wherever he is that he is ok.

  • portcity says:

    I wonder if the gang signs have anything to do with the fact that he is missing. This picture is a perfect example of why this man will be locked up, killed, or another POS in our society. It’s not the MAN holding ya down HOMIE it’s the way you live.
