  • Sounds like Black on Black crime. What happened to BLM? These people are their own worst enemies.

    • These people…. First youre an idiot!! All lives matter and such wouldn’t have to be pointed outbif YALL PEOPLE wouldn’t have disrespected and murdered it for so many years!!!! Fact check !!!

  • I guess white on white crime doesn’t happen right? I guess you are your own worst enemy…

  • Just for the record Mr Jim it wasn’t black on black crime Mr Presley tried to walk away from the crime and was shot in the back so if you don’t know all the facts maybe you shouldn’t have so many negative opinions about black on black crime or black lives matter again Mr Presley tried to avoid the confrontation and walk away and was shot in the back that could happen to anybody regardless of their race or gender…

  • Technically there is no such thing as “ black on black crime” it’s literally just a crime like it would be if it was “ white on white,” but please continue soo we can know the true thoughts of our fellow neighbors.
