        This story breaks my heart. R.I.P. Didn’t know her personally but my thoughts go out to her family and despite what the altercation was over my thoughts go to the family of the young lady who is now facing charges. No win situation.

    Are you out of your peanut sized mind. Authority vs citizen is not equal to citizen vs citizen. You could at least be tactful with your hatred

    There’s a difference between being shot/killed/assaulted by a person who has sworn to protect and serve you and being stabbed by an individual after involvement in an altercation. Say R.I.P and keep it moving; show respect.

      White people kill me. Forever claiming they are not a racistbbut forever bringing race into a situation. “Where’s Al Sharpton.” Welp, where were you when these Nicolet kids are shooting each other, where were you when these white kids are selling heroin and causing deaths? Thats right, you behind was praying for the families and praying that the suspects seek help. But when its a black person involved you’re asking where Al Sharpton is and wishing these black individuals are jailed for life. Hit home didn’t it? Truth hurts racist f bomb!!!
