Okay so I am talking to one of my homeboys who’s let’s just say affiliated about the shooting of 25-year-old Kashmier James on 85th and Western.

The police are looking at the gang angle.

Now if you know anything at all about gangs in Los Angeles you know that’s 83 Gangster Crips hood–for the rest of ya’ll that’s pronounced Eight-Tray Gangster Crips.

You can find them from Florence (north) to 89th (south) between Vermont (east) to Van Ness Ave (west). Their territory also extends on the westside to Van Ness between 79th Street (north) and Manchester (south).

Anyway, we got on the subject of snitching and he point blank made it clear that if he knew who killed her, he’d be more inclined to kill the person himself than turn him into the police–reward or no reward.

That’s a bunch of bullshit.

Look–I am no fan of running to the police for everything that happens.  In fact, like most Black people, I have my own issues with the police, in particularly the sheriff.  However, this woman was killed on Christmas in front of her baby.

Who shoots an unarmed woman in front of her child?

A punk ass coward and don’t let me find out who did it cause yes–I’m turning you in–reward or no reward.

As for my homeboy, we just had to agree to disagree cause there ain’t no amount stupidity that’s going to make me join in that chorus of nonsense that too many of sing in.
