    First, of all don’t nobody know what happen so we as people shouldn’t have anything to say. I know that we was people voice our opinion on things but we need to get all the facts insteady of judging others. Dont nobody no what was going on in that house but the people who live there. After the truth been told that’s when we can voice our opinion about the situation people
