    Rev jackson please come to this home, please. Please pray with them, teach them the evils of irresponsible gun ownership. Help them set up a shrine INSIDE of their home. Black panthers, please come to this home. give them pamphlets on responsible parenting when you have a gun in the home. Get them to aclu and naacp to get parenting help and responsible gun ownership help. Marchers and protesters, please go INSIDE this home and pace around and around, go in thru the front door and out the back, blocking the family from leaving so they can understand justice. so they can face the demon of irresponsibility.

    Police don’t need judgement neither. Police (specificallyMPD) do a fine outstanding job on scenes and at solving crimes and someone should/will be held responsible for such tragedy. No excuse whatsoever for a dead baby.
