    This person needs something to do,depending on what kind of sentence he receives, maybe he can turn his life around.Looks like the black men of America that are worth anything, would come forward and set a example for our young men to follow.Martin Luther King tried so hard to set the example--he would be so disappointed that his dream has become hazy.He wanted his people to have a good life to work for your wage.To be strong,equal in everything.We have a black president...the dream is still there, we have got to polish it up, so our young people can see the Good Life is not drugs,stealing,violence,worthlessness.When our old leaders step down,we need a new leader to step up.And you can't step up, if you can't see the dream.
