        It is not about revenge talk or getting revenge. In life, you do wrong, wrong will follow, you do good, good will follow.

    How can anyone sleep good at nights knowing and seen who kill this man and choose to keep their mouths close. I tell you, Tortola is full of some heartless, evil, dangerous, hypocritical fake people.

      @My Goodness it’s so heartbreaking to see the people who said they are his friends who was at the club that night just bold face lying to his mom, to his sister and most of all to his son. Imagine NOT one of his friends NOT 1 saw who killed him!! That’s why I personally don’t mixed up with too much people and follow popularity because around here it’s just a hype to remain reverent.

        They are all up in man mother face acting like they are so concern with the fake condolences and if you need anything I am here for you, if you need anything just let me know lying with a straight face to the man mother and child. They are the true enemies. Some of them at the Funeral standing there looking at the man laying in his casket knowing who is responsible for putting him there and still choose to continue to keep their mouth shut. I put more value on the stray animals than these worthless things that call themselves humans.

          Of course they know who did it. Those fake snakes in the grass need to stay out of the boy mother face with the lies and deceit. Just speaking for myself, if I was his mother I would pitch a p*t of h*t b***** w***** in their faces when they come to me with the fake lies both males and females. One set of dirty @## fake hypocrites they are.

      I agree, how can they stand in the man mothers face and be so damn fake knowing and saw who killed her son.Those are some very dangerous people, covering for the killer. #$%^ that sh** about snitches getting stitches. The same gunman that they are covering up for is going to do the same to them because they know his secret. That is why I stay low, there is no such thing as friends. My friend is God, he will never betray or turn his back on me.

    I didn't know him personally but my condolences to the family and friends at this time. I hope they find this bastard who did this to him. I could imagine the mother's pain losing her first born mehnn. A mother should never be the one to bury her child. . The livestream was very emotional to watch. May God bring the family n friends peace and comfort at this time.

    It is truly sad. I pray that the person who was responsible is caught. God seen everything and no unjust goes unpaid. The man did not even get to spend Christmas with his little boy because they rob him of that, how is that fair? but the one that killed him was spending Christmas with his. I don’t care what anyone says or think T…k A…n and his goons is responsible for killing the man in the club. I am not saying to take revenge, KARMA WILL HANDLE THAT. KARMA IS MORE POWERFUL THAN VOODOO OR SATAN AKA THE DEVIL. JUST SIT BACK AND WATCH.

Jameiz so call people them aint going do nothing! They going watch accomplice ride he bike up and down just living rich.
