Kill the Culture

In the last two weeks, there have been two high profile murder cases that involved the death of four innocent people.

Just yesterday the bodies of Calysse Perkins and Fitzgerald Phillips were found in an empty house. Perkins was killed because she was with Phillips when his dealing with illegal drugs caught up with him.

Calysse was a literacy tutor, someone who wanted to help those who could not read or write. She's gone because young men who obviously know no other life other than the thug-gangsta or whatever it's called lifestyle killed her in cold blood.

Last week there was an execution-style triple murder in Terrytown. Two of the three murdered were 6 years old and 23 months old; also shot was an 11-year-old girl.

It's beyond madness now, this "war" that's going on.

Cliff talks about the fact that the culture that breeds the thugs must be stopped. I couldn't agree more.

Let me start by saying I knew him personally and he wasn't that kind of person to sell drugs. All he thought about was his mother school and having a better life. He just lose his brother so he was trying to be there for his mother. So don't talk what u don't know. Every young black male that die or get killed don't sell drugs. He was a very kind person and anyone who know him knows that's. So if you not gonna try to get to know a little more about him than don't speak about him nomore.

Anon, I only can post what I read in the paper. When the paper exhonorates Fitz, I will be sure to post it. I'm not "talkin what I don't know", just going by what I read.

I'm sure he was a kind person. If you know where I can go online to get more info on him, PLEASE be sure to let me know.
