What a waste of a young life. What had he done to deserve dying like that?
It’s been said that this was over a 15 year old girl (who has now been arrested and charged) and that she filmed the attack on her mobile phone…… smh 😦
You have to wonder what exactly goes through these kids heads. When did they become so cold and evil?
Rest In Peace Shakilus Townsend.
