This is what we have come to, thugs having no fear of being seen with guns, a father of 2, at 19, killing himself. Some will say it was an accident, I say nope, it was suicide. Why do I say this, because the thug was playing with a gun… That was intentional, guns kill… They say he thought it was unloaded… Don’t you think a thug would know to check?. I am sure he thought it was, but I still call it suicide, guns kill…
