    I don't understand what's going on with our young black brothers today. I see so many on a daily basis where I work with life sentences with no care in the world. You guys are on here talking about foolishness, but not only is it the young blacks, it's the young whites as well. These are the youth of tomorrow and as citizens we need to stick together and start helping to deter these young individuals from committing crimes. We as law enforcers can't do it alone. We need the help of the community.

    It wasn't very smart for the victims to answer their door at 2:00am in the morning. Do they lack common sense?

    Search the FAMU campus. You will probably find them either in the admin offices or the band room.
