19 confirmed kills my ass
As a resident of Louisville, KY, Beecher Terrace was literally down the sidewalk from the county jail and courthouse, a total set up but thats another story for another day. But BT was most certainly a problematic environment with countless deaths due to murder. They have now been torn down and redeveloped and homes are still being built to this day, its absolutely beautiful!!
The reality of the American dream and cappitalism.
In short, these are just very violent people.
She don't kerr
i believe that we as a nation the united states of America took a wrong turn MY SELF INCLUDED!!!!! a long time ago but i was
ignorant of a lot of things i can't begin to tell you my life story i grew up in a dysfunctional family my brother was an atheist
but mom an dad did not raise us as Christians i remember my mother watching soap opera's and game shows and dad watched
sports and read his news paper they ignored me most of the time they gave me food clothing and shelter but no love I'm
amazed that i didn't turn out something like the BTK KILLER because of the shit!!!! i lived with my life growing up looks like a
train wreck disaster i was never taught by my parents that there is a god if you could see my life played out from when i was
a kid you would agree what mess !!!!!! i need about 10 paragraphs to tell you everything. that is why i can't begin to go into
the details even i can't remember everything trust me it is complicated
Oh yes if you are POOR no Justice at all 😭🙏
Mr. McDuffie continued Blessings and well done.
Not one judge, attorney, or probation officer even ONCE offered, recommended, or suggested individual or family counseling to ANY of these kids. They didn’t even assign them a social worker knowing full well they have either attempted suicide or have PTSD, anxiety disorder, or some other mental or emotional issue. America 🇺🇸 is TRASH and it especially doesn’t give a damn about Black people. 👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾
Did Demetria Duncan’s judge really fix her lips to say that putting kids in jail is “treatment”?? They don’t give a f*ck about Black kids. Real talk. 🤬
Why wasn’t Keith allowed to go to rehab like Charles was? Because he’s not a veteran? TF?? 🤷🏾♀️
How are people with schizophrenia released from prison without a penny and expected to immediately feed and fend for themselves: no aid, no SSI, no job, no nothing?!?!?! Kentucky must be the sh*ttiest state in the Union. Make it make sense.
I like learning but it's hard to watch this.
It even look like only black people live in this state or city. It's sad that seemingly only them "have the right to be locked up". Shame! The government should really be worried about this unless they're not considered citizens of this country.
I heard a lot of saving money lets focus on saving people and not throwing people who need help in a fucking prison
He would make a great GLAZIER,,,I would never find a better man to be a GLAZIER,,,HOPEFULLY ONE DAY THEY WILL MAKE FREEDOM LEGAL
