A simple case search. Allan pled guilty to PWID-Marijuana in July 2010. Judge Lamasney sentences Allan to 5 years, then suspends all but 8 days, with credit for 8 days time served. So Allan get murdered when he should have been in jail. Thanks judge. I call that justice.

As a drug dealer, it looks like Allan made a deal to earn that "time served." Looks like someone didn't like that deal.

But it's just marijuana, people; not a serious drug.... >

He's dead. Predictably dead.

Some of you people on here are worse than the guy from WikiLeaks. You get a name and can't wait to see if he or she is, illegal, had any prior arrest or black or hispanic. No matter what he did in the past we'll never know why he got killed.
