    Young brother what is wrong with you ? You don’t have any knowledge? Where is your parents? The same hands that God gave to you, you took life. When God take away your sight and hands, I hope your mom don’t cry that you were innocent. In other country both your hands would have been amputated cut off.

    i think both Martha Castillo & Easy Glenn needs to b quiet before they start saying things they know nothing about. Keyron is innocent until proven guilty! but this is 1 case where d police made a super mistake and need to do their job properly! i could attest that he is innocent because he was with me and we both listened to those shots that nite….i have absolutely no idea y the young man would call Keyron’s name (if he even called his name) because it makes no sense non wat so ever…..but u guys r entitled to an opinion but i just wished that u would keep it 2 yourself until u learn d facts…..thank u very much
