    You people act like he murdered someone instead of not reporting to probation. Get a [explicit] life. If people with addiction could get help instead of condemning them things like this wouldn’t happen. Yall keep slandering him like he was out robbing and shooting. He was fishing. So again I will say all you people spending your day on Facebook. Get a job get a life and stay outta other peoples business. The world would be a better place for it!
