Just read related article on this story. Lil Boosie, as he was called, was nothing but a violent criminal. Justice served.

The boy went out at night.
With a gun, drugs, and a fight.
He tried to kill men,
Then his mother blamed them,
Glad the Police turned out his lights.

First of all, this is a terrible tragedy because another human being with potential has died - but it was his own actions that brought about his demise. I pray for his family, but he made poor decisions that led to his death. If he had complied with the police, he would still be alive and unharmed, like his companions in the car.

Let's see...seventeen years old, already charged in three armed robberies, a suspect in several more spanning a total of seven Arkansas counties, breaks mandatory curfew, in a car past 1 am with two unlicensed concealed handguns, one reported stolen, pulls a gun on officers, fires twice and is taken down. There was no other way his life was going to end. His chosen path led him here. THANK YOU NLR PD for taking this kid off of our streets before he succeeded in killing an innocent.

You guys seem genuinely entertained and happy that someone died. Maybe it's too late for you all.
