There are more people locked up in the U.S. than every other country combined...more than 78% of that are black men. The other black men are killing each other daily, so the system get's two for one. When does it stop? How many possible Obama's have already been killed? WTF?

This is a very violent neighborhood. Just last month, another young man was gunned down. Someone else was shot there earlier this year. Terrible. Although this person will remain a tiny article in the WaPo, if you look at Facebook, the friends of these homicide victims prove that they leave behind people who mourn them.

Well this is kind of hard for me to read but I had to comment being as though I knew Marquice Ayers on a very personal level. Just last week he proposed to me, so I am his fiance. I really just wish all of the violence would cease in the District of Columbia. I don't think that the people who are killing eachother realize how painful things really are.
