    I know for sure he wasn’t a gang member at all. He was actually a young man full of life and humor, and I am not writing this because of the the lost of his life. I’m writing for the lost of integrity and lack of value of life, that people have gained over the years. It’s not life in the hood, it’s death of a future.
