MESSAGE! This is the little boy is the second pic on the right. Growing up in our little southern neighborhood everyone would watch everyone’s back, and protect each other at all costs. The little boy I would watch play outside and even hold his hand as he crossed the street is now behind bars with a LIFE sentence.
He grew up with a Single Mother all year, but he would beg and cry to be with his grandmother and his dad‘s sides of the family. His father would barely be around to watch him sleep or wake up, because the Hustle was his first love. This little boy was raised with an image of what a man was suppose to be, and he himself wanted to also become a “businessman.” The little boy ‘s dad had beautiful women, clothes, and plenty of guns. His son, that once sweet little boy immortalized his father. As he became older and would still come around us in the Summer, we would still make sure he had food to eat, and would stay out of trouble when he was in our presence. He was very respectful, and a nice little boy that would do anything you asked. So why did he end up in prison for life? He wanted to be a business man but he couldn’t do that working at Subway making sandwiches. He quit and went wild as the wind, so wild that we would ask where is he and no one would know?
The last time I saw him as as a free man he was in the gas station. He walked up to me with a smile and respect, ALWAYS respectful of me! He saw me smiled and gave a big hug and a kiss on the cheek and said, “Hey, beautiful little lady.” I looked right in his eyes and said, “You had me worried about your tall ass, where the hell you been?” I was worried for a while. He said to me “Doing my thang, big things happening and he pulled out a roll of money and paid for my stuff too.”
I laughed and said “Stay out of trouble!” and I hugged him tight and he said “love you” and I said “Love you too, always.” He to this day confuses me to this day. Was he a Sociopath the entire time? Did the drugs and influence make him lose empathy? Why was he so shy as a baby and bold as an adult? His life had taken a turn that he himself did not want any of us to know about, he wanted to be in gang. He had to prove his allegiance to the gang by getting a body, killing someone. All gang members don’t have to murder someone. Some get jumped in and raped in, but this little boy wanted to climb the Gang Ladder to the top. He was proud of joining a gang.
No one knew that he had the capacity to kill someone. He decided to kill my friends husband, and it was planned without the knowledge of the other three burglars. I will show parts of the story, but I will without privacy out of respect. When the little boy told some of our neighborhood kids that he ran the streets with he wanted to rob this terminally ill man it was suppose to be a 10 minute scheme, in and out. He knew that the victim would not suspect a thing because they were always over there on the porch and smiling in his face. He incorporated 3 other people in this massacre (the boy in the top left) planned to leave and go to the army the next week, the mans niece(was the niece of my friend and had free rein at the house and even would spend the night. The lighter skin boy was here to visit his family for a week and was roped in to the caper. He was not from the neighborhood. He was just visiting his relatives, in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Two of the children went to the back of the house, and he and the other boy went up the front of the stairs in front of the house with the gun and he says, “F8cK that we gonna kill this cracker!” As soon as the victim opened the door and saw the gun he was shot in the chest and his last words were “No, Oh Shit,Why?” He was shot three times and that little boy that held MY hand kicked him in the head and said, “mu*&afuc**er dead.” The initial plan was for the other three to hold him why the other two robbed him. Then it became a murder and they were crying and arguing, but they were already accessories to the crime. Everyone realized that he planned to kill him from the beginning. In that little moment it went from a robbery and in to a murder.
When my friend arrives at her home she finds him dead, she calls his mom to inform her of the death and the mom frantically cries and screams and jumps into her car an hour later she was dead too. The mom was in a hurry to see her dead son’s aid to find out details. She was so upset that she had a wreck, and died before she got to see her son’s body.

This one gang initiation destroyed a family,that had to plan two funerals the same week. That little boy finds out that the victim’s mom died too and kisses his gun and gloats “Now I have two bodies for the price of one.” When all four were arrested they were separated but all confessed the exact story details, except the little boy. They all received 8-15 years but he received life because he pulled the trigger,and lied. They other three were ONLY in that mess to get the victims pain pills and money, not his life.
Once they went to trial the little boy used the “I wasn’t there” defense, and still pretended not to know my friend, and had this cocky demeanor accompanied with this”I am going to be free” mentality. The prosecution used his Facebook post to convict him. He basically snitched on himself. People use social media to understand your character, when you apply for job and for murders. They had him in pictures in his bandanna and throwing up gang signs. Those images and his demeanor poisoned the jury, and that was part of the reason he wasnt even given 24 years like some murderers. They also mentioned the mom dying on the way to the murder scene. So he was blamed for Victims’ murder and the Mom’s car accident. By law, he did not murder the mom, but most people thought she would have never left, if that death of her son wouldn’t have taken place. Some wonder did she have a heart attack at the wheel , or was just speeding too fast because of the little boys actions?
WHY? I can’t only blame on the fact that his father ignored him at times to hustle. Gangs target unloved individuals that need respect. Now it is a mess, and I want to know what happened to change him into this person, or was he a master of manipulation? He also had a girl impregnated. He has life, she can’t be with him, and he saw his son the first and last time when he was sentenced to prison.
Where the hell is that gang now? They aren’t paying his bills or breaking bread with his chick and child. They used him, and now he finally realizes that now, but he is gone forever ineligible for parole. His grandmother put a lien on her home an also turned in family vehicles to find a winning lawyer to free that little boy. If he was in a gang you would assume they would also donate some money, but of course they didn’t!
We wanted him to go to college or find a job and settle down, but that street life was his addiction and that gang life was his downfall.
He tasted a piece of the “Devils Pie” and now he sleeps in the “Belly Of The Beast.”
