    I just don’t understand how anyone can look a child in the face and shoot him/her. …..indeed many are mad, few are roaming. . .sad!!

      Cindy most likely its a white man who thinks anything black is an animal that could boldly shoot a child because to him its an animal. We should stop seeing the whites as superior even with the way africans struggle to travel to america by any means keep giving them the wrong impression about us, i dont know whats there that one cannot find at home. GOD HAVE MERCY ON THE REMAINING CHIDREN.
